"By the time you get aroung to getting what's left to be got, whatever's left to be got won't be interested in whatever it is you've got left to get." (read it out loud)

"My name is Inigo Montoya. You are the man who killed my father. Prepare to die."

"Yes, he vas my boyfriend!" Frau Bleuker (neigh) from Young Frankenstein

11. Top Movie in the Last Two Years

I think the only movie we went to in the last two years is "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest".

There you have it. We watch White Christmas every year (it is a family tradition, my mother and I could always catch it sometime during the holidays) and mostly know it by heart. Just this morning Elder Son looked out the window, turned to me, and said, "Must be beautiful in Vermont this time of year. All that snow?"

It is never not beautiful in Vermont.

I'm confused about Top 3 Bad Movies. Are those your favorite movies that are categorized as bad by some Omnipotent Movie Labeling Committee or are they the 3 movies you hate the most.

Cuz I'm embarrassed how much I love some of the movies in various people's Bad Movies list and I will not participate in this MeMe until I understand the distinction.

Coach, In White Christmas the on-going joke is that Danny Kaye is ready for real winter and Vermont is having one of the warmest winters ever. "Snow, snow, snow! It won't be long until I'm covered up in snow...Oh....I long to wash my face, my hands, my hair in snow."

That was AWESOME...I love your movies...excellent... (Mate and I are big fans of the Thin Man as well...and as a mother of a baby Arwyn, I realized that I'd forgotten the LOR because they're like, their own genre or something:-)
