I'm a cotton-headed ninnymuggins

Had a couple of interesting and sweet things happen this weekend. One was that someone apparently paid for my membership to Pacificon, aka Bitchin' Party. It's an anonymous benefactor but I wish that I knew who it was so I could say thank you properly -- it's an incredibly kind gesture and one that means a lot to me, and it's hard to not know who the wonderful person is! I really didn't mind not being able to pay at this time for one, because fortunately Brynn McK suggested notifying me if they got close to their cap, and I figured that anyway, if I couldn't afford to go, I am at least in the same city so I can hang out in the lobby and see people, even if I couldn't go to functions, and that would be enough. But someone very thoughtful gave me entrance! (I guess Dad will have to find something else to get me.)

The second was that my BFF Keith in Washington DC called and asked if I would come out to DC for the week between Xmas and New Year's if he bought me a ticket. He doesn't really want to spend his (mandatory) time off alone and he figures we can go up to NYC for a bit and do some of the other stuff we didn't get to last time we were there -- I realized the other day that each time I've been there, it's been with Keith at least some of the time. Plus also possibly see some sights I haven't yet seen in the general area -- I'm especially interested in some of the really old cemeteries and Civil War sites, of course. I'll just cross my fingers there will be no blizzards impeding my journeys.

Still struggling with bad feelings, but those were some pick me ups for sure. In the meantime, I had some quotes running through my head the past few days for various reasons, so I thought I would resurrect the "Guess the 15 movie quotes" meme that I love. You know the rules -- no Googling, IMDBing, or otherwise looking up of the lines for the answers. Some are easy peasy, some are a bit more obscure. If you guess right, you get virtual cupcakes.

1. Would you give a fuck what kind of pants the son of a bitch who shot you was wearing? My Cousin Vinnie - Torra
2. Lingerie. Oh, remember lingerie? Road Warrior - Feochadn
3. I can't deal with cleaning up. Let's sell the house. Apollo 13 - Fenchurche
4. I was raised up to be a gunfighter in a family of gunfighters. Dark Blue - Feochadn
5. Come and get it, it's a running buffet! Shaun of the Dead - Feochadn
6. Red light stop, green light go, yellow light go very fast. Starman - Fenchurche
7. It's not like I'm a lesbian or something. ... It's just that all the people I've been attracted to happen to be girls.
8. My mom wouldn't buy them for me -- she said they were Satan's panties. Miss Congeniality - Klia
9. How would you like to go on a real old-fashioned binge? Mr. Deeds Goes to Town - Klia
10. I've never kissed a member of the clergy before. Would it be a sin?
11. I'm sorry I ruined your lives, and crammed 11 cookies into the VCR. Elf- Torra
12. I can't blame him. If I were going to die, there's nowhere on earth I'd rather be. Romancing the Stone - Torra
13. Humans would put seeds in the ground, pour water on them, and they grow food -- like pizza! WALL-E - Klia
14. Stop being taller than me! A Hard Day's Night - Klia
15. There's a human being named Overdose? A Man Apart - Hyptertwink

8 is Miss Congeniality.
13 is Wall-E.
Is 14 A Hard Day's Night?

And yay for two good things!

AWESOME! I didn't think anyone would get 14! The Satan's panties line is still one of my all time favorite lines ever.

I swear, most of the dialogue from A Hard Day's Night has been burned into my brain for decades. Norm and Shake were totally a couple, too. Hee.

I love Miss Congeniality -- that's what won me over to finally being a Shatner fan. *g*

I just realized 9 is Mr. Deeds Goes To Town! *headdesk* Love Coop, but not my favorite of his movies.

It is indeed! It's not as good, but it does have so many great lines. And I like how it kind of makes fun of his image.

Ooo... several of them are familiar, but there's only a few I think I know:

3. Apollo 13
6. Starman
11. Um, What About Bob? (probably wrong on this one)

You got 3 and 6, but not 11! Good job!

I am such a geek. 1 is My Cousin Vinnie, and 11 is Elf, I know. 3, 6, and 13 I knew, but were already guessed. ::chuckles::

ETA: OH! 12 is Romancing the Stone! It came to me the moment I hit post! ::LOL::

\o/ Woot! Geeks FTW!

Also: Yay to PasifiCon! I can't wait to see you again!

Yes and yes! I wasn't sure anyone would get the RW one. Gyro captain FTW.

Absolutely! I can hear his long drawled-out Aussie accent. "Laaawn-ger-aaaa"
Oh, 4 is Dark Blue!

...and your subject line is from Elf. (I hate that I recognize that. My family is EVIL.)

I LOVE ELF. I am not ashamed to admit it. It makes me laugh and laugh (the parts where I don't cringe, anyway.)

Will Ferrell creeps me out. The fam tend to run Elf and A Christmas Story on a continuous loop during the holidays. Luckily, I will never get tired of A Christmas Story, though I will admit, Elf has it's moments. ;-)

Keith is awesome. If you get to NYC, you should check out this coffee shop we've been printing cards for for years -- it's called Cafe Grumpy, and has the BEST logo ever. I've been wanting to visit them forever. http://www.cafegrumpy.com/

Wow, I don't know any of these but am impressed by the people who do! These are really funny lines, good picks!
gwyn_r
Nov. 11th, 2009 05:44 am (UTC)
Thanks! It's funny, at least four of those are ones I thought of in the last few days when various things came up. And one of them I thought I heard someone say in a TV show a few days ago and did a doubletake, because I am pretty sure they were ripping off the movie line.

15. A Man Apart (I think)
gwyn_r
Nov. 11th, 2009 06:07 am (UTC)
AMAZING! I thought for sure NO ONE would get that one. Ever. I think there are probably like five people who've seen it. ;-)

I wasn't sure because I always mistake that and Man on Fire. Good thing I guessed the right movie. LOL
