Allright...sorry for the delay! Last week's movie quote came from a great little movie (my first introduction to Jack Black) called High Fidelity. Great movie...You just can't go wrong with John Cusack. And now for this weeks movie quote...
"You homo-sapiens and your guns"

This is one of my husband's traditions...as kids all four brothers would lay under the tree and gaze up at the lights. What a great tradition! His family did all sorts of cool stuff as kids...and I am intent upon doing the same with my kiddos. And yes...that is a picture from this year. So yes...our Christmas tree is already up. We put it up about 2 weeks ago.
Don't judge...I like to enjoy Christmas as long as humanly possible!!
So get yourself some nice Starbucks Hot Chocolate (oh...so good) and cozy up under your Christmas tree. But don't hold your hot chocolate while you are under the tree...it'll burn your skin with it's scorching hot goodness...and your kids and husband...and it'll stain your pretty tree skirt you bought last year...and most importantly, YOU DON'T WASTE STARBUCKS HOT CHOCOLATE!! For Pete's sake...

At the insistence of family members...Here's a rundown of Halloween '08!
It was a Disney event...complete with a Princess. Beautiful, Prim and Proper...
Our son was Buzz Lightyear (or "Buzz Cycle" as it sounds when he says it. He was all laughs, until he stopped to contemplate the duties of a space ranger...
"Nobody understand the weight that is on my shoulders. It's a tough job..."
All-in-all, a great Halloween...more candy entered our house than should be allowed by law. If we pace ourselves correctly, we should still be munching on it this time next year! (you think I'm kidding...)
Allright...our last posting of Movie Quote was from the lovely movie Enchanted. Funny story...I've been crazy busy with work the past week or so...and Marty has been working some weird hours. SO...to keep the kids happy and quiet, I've let the wonder of DVD's babysit them a little. Don't judge me. My son gets to pick out the movie in the morning when his sister is at school...and for the past 5 days straight, he has picked out the same movie...Enchanted. Much to my Hubbie's disdain. I just keep telling him that it's the music and the swords that he likes the most...not the Princess! Ha!
Please enjoy this next movie quote...it's a doozie...
"Top five things I miss about Laura. One; sense of humor. Very dry, but it can also be warm and forgiving. And she's got one of the best all time laughs in the history of all time laughs, she laughs with her entire body. Two; she's got character. Or at least she had character before the Ian nightmare. She's loyal and honest, and she doesn't even take it out on people when she's having a bad day. That's character. Three; I miss her smell, and the way she tastes. It's a mystery of human chemistry and I don't understand it, some people, as far as their senses are concerned, just feel like home. (four); I really dig how she walks around. It's like she doesn't care how she looks or what she projects and it's not that she doesn't care it's just, she's not affected I guess, and that gives her grace. And five; she does this thing in bed when she can't get to sleep, she kinda half moans and then rubs her feet together an equal number of times...it just kills me. Believe me, I mean, I could od a top five things about her that drive me crazy but it's just your garden variety women you know, schizo stuff and that's the kind of thing that got me here."

Allright...our last Movie Quote was from one of my favorite movies of all time...The Wedding Singer. Clearly, I have a thing for the Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore pairing in movies (just look at my favorite movies list below). This is no exception...and it also happens to be the movie that spawned one of my nicknames...Julia Gulia.
Allright...this next movie quote is from a movie I've watched once a day for the past three days. Have at it!
"Geez..I gotta lay off the nuts!"
PS...y'all have a real contender in the midst...my dear friend Katie has joined out little game! Good to have you here KT...let's see if I can stump you!!

Allright...I'm having a good time with this!! Monday's movie quote was from the AWESOME movie French Kiss starring Kevin Kline (who I actually thought was French because of this movie) and Meg Ryan (in her good years). If you haven't seen it...you've gotta. You will totally crack up! Who can deny a romantic comedy?!
Now..for today's movie quote...it's a short one...GOOD LUCK!
"Not porno tongue. Church tongue."

For those who read the last Movie Quote and are dying to hear the answer...fret no more. That heart-wrenching quote was from Hope Floats...great movie...check it out!
Now for today's movie quote...forgive the expletives...but they are what make it so funny! Hope you get it!!
"You'll be one of those grumpy old men sitting in the corner of a crowded cafe, mumbling to yourself, 'My ass is twitching. You people make my ass twitch.'"

I have always loved movies. Any kind, really...and apparently my closest friends in High School all had the same addiction. I remember playing the "movie quote" game growing up with my 7-year-older brother, Dennis. I highly doubt he invented the game, but man could he play it! He would give me a movie quote, and I would have to tell him which movie it came from. He always had quotes I didn't know, so I've made darn-sure over the years to keep up on my movie watching so when we are together I can stump him. It is a joyous event!
I was queen of the game in High School, though...I was hardly ever stumped (thanks to my years of tutelage under my brother). So...let me introduce you to the game. If you know the movie the quote comes from...leave a comment with your answer. As soon as I get some major advertisers on my blog I'll start offering prizes!! (don't hold your breath, though...)
So...here's the first ever edition of the Movie Quote game!
"Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That's what momma always says. She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will..."

Today is a great great day...know why? The election is finally over! No more obnoxious ads on tv cutting in to the really good Prime-Time programming I need to maintain my sanity! Woo-hoo!
I weep for our nation. If this election has taught me one thing...it is just to reinforce my belief that it doesn't matter who holds office in our country...for God is still on His throne. He is still the one in control. And though God may allow our new President to do what he may (REVELATION 13), God's hand is awash over all those who have placed their lives under the guard of his Holy Son, Jesus.
As it stands now, I am on the watch. Guard your hearts, Run to the Savior, and prepare yourself for a ride.
Psst...by the way, I LOVE LIVING IN A RED STATE!!

For those out there with a daughter...no matter the age of your little girl now, there exists in us this unfathomable pit of doom awaiting in the future of each of our girls. If you can name the movie that the following quote comes from...you can certainly attest to sharing the same sense of dread that I do...
"Who presents this woman? This woman? But she's not a woman. She's just a kid. And she's leaving us. I realized at that moment that I was never going to come home again and see Annie at the top of the stairs. Never going to see her again at our breakfast table in her nightgown and socks. I suddenly realized what was happening. Annie was all grown up and was leaving us, and something inside began to hurt."
Oh yeah...you know it...you love it...it makes you weep like a pre-menopausal woman...It's Steve Martin's "Father of the Bride."
Seriously...who doesn't love this movie?! And what is so lovable about his movie is that it speaks to the hearts of all mothers and fathers out there (ESPECIALLY Fathers...I remember seeing this movie in the theatre (I was 9 years old) and my Dad hiding the tears while my Mom and I bawled openly (I was a sensitive 9 year old)). When my hubbie and I caught a recent showing of the movie on tv, he had to "get up and check something" several times.
Here's the kicker...my daughter is 4, and I am already dreading the day she gets married. Of course it'll be a joyous day, and I'm sure that part of me will be more than happy to pass on the responsibility to a (prayerfully) capable man...but naturally, the other part of me tears up at the thought of this tenacious child leaving forever.
SO....I will enjoy the many years I've got with her before she dons the white dress and veil...and be sure and load up on the Waterproof Mascara when the day arrives.
Lord help my Husband...I just don't know how he'll survive it.
