Clams In A Mysterious Green Sauce

Clams In A Mysterious Green Sauce

MPip and I just had lunch at some Portuguese joint by our work. He had the "Filet of Sole" which is Portuguese for "tuna sandwich." Just kidding. I had the "Clams in Green Sauce." Don't ask me what the green sauce is, it may just be one of those things that are better left uninvestigated. Oh, we also had a pitcher of sangria. Unfortunately it was watered down enough that I am still sober so there will be no drunken blogging here. Sorry to get your hopes up. Anyway, I told Mpip that my boss and I had been debating the other day whether his prediction that the Knicks would go from "suck to blow" meant they would be getting worse. He replied that he was just quoting a line from Spaceballs which I really should have caught since I've seen that movie about 8000 times.

I bought a few DVDs recently, Blockbuster is having a "Buy 2 get one free" promotion on their previously-viewed movies. One of the movies I picked up was Original Sin with Angelina Jolie and Antonio Banderas. I was going to wait for the "uncut" version since it's my girl but then I thought "Who cares, I can just buy porn." I also got The Princess Diaries which I'm sure is making some of you snicker if not all, but I love those cheesy kind of kid movies. If one were to peruse my vast movie collection they would find titles like A Little Princess, Matilda, The Parent Trap, The Secret Garden and How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

Every so often I hear movie quotes I really like and am actually able to remember them. One from the end of The Princess Diaries was "True courage is not the absence of fear but the understanding that something else is more important" or something to that effect. You always hear crap like that but I really liked the way that was phrased. Here are some of my favorite movie quotes...well, the ones I can remember off the top of my head. By the way I'm paraphrasing some of them because I'm too tired from doing absolutely nothing to think hard:

"Nothing's ever final until you're dead. And even then I'm sure God negotiates." - Baroness de Ghent, Ever After

"It'll give her shower nozzle masturbation material for weeks." - Heather #1, Heathers

Wayne: What is it?
Stacy: Open it.
Wayne: If it's a severed head I'm going to be very displeased. What is this?
Stacy: A gun rack.
Wayne: A gun rack? Sheeyaaah right. I don't even own a gun, let alone many guns that would necessitate an entire rack. What would I do with a gun rack??" --Wayne's World

"And so you know, Lone Star, that good will never triumph over evil because good is dumb." - Dark Helmet, Spaceballs

"The first is never get involved in a land war in Asia. But only slightly lesser-known is this: never go up against a Sicilian when death is on the line!!" - Vezzini, The Princess Bride

"You like apples? Well I got her number. How do you like them apples?" - Will Hunting, Good Will Hunting

"Only two things in this world scare me. (Nuclear war) and carnies...you know circus folk - got small hands, smell like cabbage." - Austin Powers

"I blow you motherbitch!! You want badges? I got badges!!" - crazed store clerk, Bad Boys

"Yeah I got a question. Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe at night?" - Jonathan Bender, The Breakfast Club

"Hey Harry, do you know we're sitting on 4 million tons of fuel, one nuclear weapon and a thing that has 270,000 moving parts, built by the lowest bidder? Makes you feel good doesn't it?" Rock Hound, Armageddon

"Oh man... why do you have a gun...in space?" Chick, Armageddon

Wait I'm still thinking of some...
