I decided to do the Movie Quote Trivia again since there seems to be lots of searches for it, plus, hopefully I will get some comments with links to other people’s movie quotes for me to guess…my favorite part :)!  Anyway, here’s the rules (for anyone who wants to join in and do their own) and the quotes…

Here are the rules:

1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess (if you know them all, please don’t guess every one).
4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
5. No Googling or IMDb-ing. That’s cheating and that’s no fun.

Here are my quotes:

1. Did you ever Flashy Thing me Guessed by Katie, Men in Black

2. Predictions?

Yes, predictions.


3. Ere, he says he’s not dead. 
Yes he is. 
I’m not. 
He isn’t. 
Well, he will be soon, he’s very ill.
I’m getting better. 

4. Yeah, but you know what? This one, this one right here. This was my dream, my wish. And it didn’t come true. So I’m taking it back. I’m taking them all back. 

5.  Come ‘on, Honey. We can’t close our eyes to the plight of the city. Kids, you noticing all this plight? (Gunshot, followed by screams.) Roll ’em up. 

6.I know what you’re thinking. “Did he fire six shots or only five?” Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk? 

7. Hey, Wade , I got a mother, you got a mother, the sarge has got a mother. I’m willing to bet that even the Captain’s got a mother. Well, maybe not the Captain, but the rest of us have got mothers.

8. Snakes!  Why’d it have to be snakes!  Guessed by Katie, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

9. Let’s do it for Johnny man!  We’ll do it for Johnny!

10. Dad!  He’s speaking English!

Five Minutes for Mom is  having a photo contest called The Kid in You and looking for the Spirit of Childhood…this is the photo that came to mind of my hubby at the Bronx Zoo.  My daughter wasn’t even one yet at the time so he was forced to play with all the cool stuff at the children’s zoo by himself LoL.  There’s lots of very cute photos to check out over there!  Wish us luck :)!

Ok, I realize I’m a day late for this but I was quite happy with how many little jobs I managed to cross off my list between late last night and this afternoon.  Last night I sat down and finally put all my photo cd’s in a cd album in order, then I sorted the huge pile of coupons I’d clipped, weeded out the expired ones and separated the rest into their respective catagories…I even managed to use $4 worth of them today.  Then this morning I let my daughter play with a basin full of water in the tub while I purged and organized the linen closet.  I even managed to buy a gift for a bridal shower I’m invited to next month.  I don’t usually get this much done in a whole weekend, let alone a single day off in the middle of the week so I’m quite proud of myself.  Of course my house is still a mess but at least I’m getting organized, bit by bit.  

I also got to take my daughter to her sports camp this week and this week’s sport was baseball.  The group was made up of three girls and one boy.  The boy was 4 and seemed to be a T-Ball veteran, but he had to leave after the first half hour.  It was very cute to watch the Coach try to show three 3-4 year old girls how to throw, hit and run the bases when they would have been more than happy to just play catch with each other.  He came over to us Moms/Grandmas at one point chuckling because when he asked the girls if they were leaving him, one of them said to the others, ‘We can’t leave or he’s going to cry’ LoL! 

Hmmm, maybe tomorrow I’ll post a Wordless Wednesday Photo LoL!

Yep, Abbey is signed up for Sports camp in our town.  Its just a one hour a day, one day a week thing for the next month but it will be fun.  Abbey and her cousin Matt are signed up and it started today.  From what her Nana told me, this week was Soccer week and she quite enjoyed kicking the ball into the net.  She did not, however, totally get the concept of kicking the soccer ball around the cones…instead, she was trying to knock the cones down…LoL, I wish I’d been there to see that.  I will be off from work next Wednesday so my SIL and I will be taking the kids to Lacrosse day next week.  That should be fun, although I have to admit, I was sort of hoping that the one Sports camp day I had off would be on Football day…how funny would it be to see my three year old daughter playing football :)…tee hee!  Even better, she is also signed up for weekly Nature Workshops for pre-schoolers and tomorrow is Earthworm Day.  As it turns out, Abbey is quite a friend to the earthworms so I’m thinking she will enjoy tomorrow’s workshop quite a bit.  Look for some pictures next week of Abbey’s warm weather activities!

I hope all my Mom friends are enjoying a whole Mother’s Weekend instead of just a day…you deserve it :)!  MY Mother’s Day is tomorrow since Scottie is working Sunday afternoon and the morning is for his Mom and that night Abbey and I are joining the rest of the family for dinner out with my Mom. 

 Tonight’s plan was to finish Abbey’s presents for her grandmother’s.  I just came across two little heart shaped plastercraft sets I’d bought two years ago for Mother’s Day…at the time I opened the box and read the directions for the craft that lets you make a mold of your little one’s hand, “Be sure to keep your child’s hand still for 60-90 seconds until the gel mold sets”.  I read that and put it away…there was no way my 18 month old was going to keep her hand still for 5 seconds, nevermind 90.  Exactly what made me think I’d do much better at age 3 and a half I’m not quite sure.  The other night we did the gel molds…the more I told Abbey to keep her hands still the more she wiggled her fingers LoL.  Tonight I mixed the plaster and poured it over the gel mold, following the instructions exactly.  After a half hour I popped the plaster heart shape out of the mold and turned it over where the directions said I’d  have to pull out the gel mold with a butter knife.  So…I turn the mold over and its a perfectly smooth, plaster heart…no gel mold in sight.  You should have seen me excavating the mold of my daughter’s little hands out of the plaster, using the back end of a butter knife like a chisel.  I felt like an Archeologist at work LoL.  I’m sorry to say, however, that only one of the gifts survived my excavation…well, partially survived.  The good one has only four full fingers…a good portion of her pinky finger got chiseled right off, but the other one was worse off that that and ended up in about five pieces.  So tomorrow we’ll be scrambling to make another Mother’s Day gift before Sunday morning :)!    Hopefully I’ll get some breakfast in bed first LoL!

When I saw there was a Motherhood Photo Contest  on Five Minutes for Mom, this is the first photo that came to mind!  A picture of my daughter and I when she was just 6 weeks old…seems like just yesterday and a hundred years ago all at once. 

ETA: It appears that I’m too late to enter the contest but what better photo to have up for Mother’s Day Week anyway.  Here’s a link to Five Minutes For Mom’s Mother’s Day Giveaway post with lots of giveaways you can enter to win.
