So I'm kind a nerd too. There's lots of reason's but I'll only tell one. I have this thing about quotes, love 'em. Movie quotes, Music lyric quotes, famous quotes, even things my friends say. I just can't get enough. Hence the title, you know where that's from right? Because sometimes I am a tad judgemental if I want to be friends if you understand what I'm talking about.
You know, Bill Murray from Caddyshack, "Hey Lama, how about something for the, you know, for the effort?" And the Dalai Lama says, "Oh,uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice." Just the "So I've got that goin' for me." can be used over and over. Another favorite, which Marc and I say a lot is, "All I need is...(insert whatever you want here) and this ashtray, that's all I need." Steve Martin, The Jerk, right? Kind of old school, but then again, we're kind of old. Okay, one more, that literally I can't talk to my friend Rachel on the phone without one of us saying is, "What are you doing? I never know what you're doing back there." Will Ferrell, Wedding Crashers. "Mom, the meatloaf! F@#*!" Okay, you get the idea.
Where am I going with this? To be honest, nowhere really. It's just last night I was reading Always Home and Uncool's
blog and he quoted Warron Zevon, which made me so happy. So I had to quote back my all time favorite lyric of a song, I don't know why it's my favorite but it is, always has been, when Don McLean says, "Do you believe in rock and roll, can music save your mortal soul and can you teach me how to dance real slow." I used to believe when this song came on the radio I would have good luck for the rest of the day, just like my brother (Chris, not Mark) thought hearing the Doors was bad luck, don't know or remember why either of us believed either of those things.
So I love quotes, another all time favorite is something my friend Lisa says anytime someone gets annoyed with us, that we're not paying attention, or generally have just done something to bug them. She says, "You're so pretty." For real, she means it too. In the airport, at a cash register, really to whomever needs it. It cracks me up and people love to hear they're pretty so really it's a win/win. And my friend Christina is literally a quote a minute. My all time favorite of her's is what she says to aggressive drivers who get irritated at her, "You're so crazy." while twirling her finger near her head. So there you have it. This is for you anonymous, who knows nothing about kids and yoga, you've got to have something to say to this, song lyrics are your speciality. And whoever else, please share....
