40 Great Quotes about Marriage

Marriage Credit Rex Features

credit: Rex Features

“Most women use more brains picking a horse in the third at Belmont than they do picking a husband” 

This quote is one of 40 in a slideshow by the Telegraph and is attributed to Actress Lauren Bacall (1924-2014), who was married to Humphrey Bogart. It makes a good quip doesn’t it? It should, because as commenter, allthoughtswork, noted, it was written by a screenwriter, not thought up by Ms Bacall. This is just one more example of the cultural issue we seem to have of confusing the character with the actor. Nice catch, allthoughtswork.

Greatest Unscripted Movie Scenes

I hope you enjoy this link as much as I did. I love that some of the best scenes and lines in movies were ad lib, think about Casablanca’s “Here’s looking at you, kid”, or Aliens’ “Game over, man”, as the drop ship crashes into the planet, and try to think about Young Frankenstein without Gene Hackman’s “Wait, I was going to make espresso”.

For me, this is the mark of an actor who is truly in character, and it shows so much about a director who can recognize such perfection and keep it in the film.

Tomorrow is Halloween!

Halloween Checklist:

Halloween Scott kiltCostume?

Scott will be wearing his kilt for work. I probably won’t be leaving the house except for my walk so I am not dressing up. 🙂

Treats?

We don’t really bother because we have had exactly 4 trick-or-treaters in the 20 years we’ve lived here. The last ones were quite happy with the Lara Bars & Cliff Bars we offered them.

A little creepy decor?

The houseplants that were in the kitchen have died out on the porch, does that count?

Mood?

We’ve been on a steady diet of X Files and Walking Dead for the last week. So it is time to move along to Betelgeuse and
Young Frankenstein.

Are you ready?

James Bond: Best lines – Reposted from The Telegraph

Movie Monday

My dad was/is a James Bond fan. Since Dr No hit the theaters the year I was born, that means is that I slept through the first run of all the early films. 🙂 If you are a James Bond fan, you’ll love this slide show. If you are not a James Bond fan, you’ll probably still enjoy the ironic quotes. Check it out!

James Bond: Best lines – Telegraph.

Bond: ‘In my business you prepare for the unexpected.’

Franz Sanchez: ‘And what business is that?’

Bond: ‘I help people with problems.’

Franz Sanchez: ‘Problem solver.’

Bond: ‘More of a problem eliminator.’


Happy Birthday, Wallace and Gromit!

My favorite comedy team turns 20 today! Yes, It’s been 20 years since an eccentric inventor and his trusty dog first hit British screens in A Grand Day Out. To celebrate the event, they have launched a new website with lots of clips, ecards and downloads. In honor of the event, I think I’ll watch The Curse of the Were-Rabbit!
