I Hate Coming Up with Titles

A little bit of randomness:

-I’ve had a looonnngggg day. A quick overview:

9am: Sit down at my desk with coffee, begin to go through my emails.

9:30am: Not finished with my emails, but I need to go to a meeting.

10:30am: End my first meeting, andddd…go into another one.

11:30am: End THAT meeting, andddd…go into another one.

12:30pm: Ah, a break – go back to my desk to check emails and listen to my voicemails. Agh, wait…I REALLY have to pee.

1pm: Shit, I have another meeting.

3:05pm: Longest…meeting…ever. Still, now I can…fuck, I’m late for a meeting.

4:30pm: Please let that be it, I can’t take one more…what’s that, Boss? You want to recap my day? Sure, why the fuck not? It’s not like I’m STARVING or anything.

5:15pm: Alright, NOW I can finally finish checking my emails from yesterday.

7pm: Ahhh, blessed alcohol.

-Went to the theater last night and had a really good time (I actually like theater – assuming the show I’m seeing doesn’t suck – but I never seem to find the time to go; still, somehow - thanks to a weird confluence of events - I’m going to like 4 shows in the next three weeks). Anyway, none of that was pertinent in any way, but…wait, where was I? Oh yeah, went to the theater last night for a ‘friend’s’ office Christmas thing (tis the season). They had a whole cocktail hour (wait, two actually) at a bar beforehand – and open bars are always appreciated – and then we all went out for some culture. Thumbs up to a solid night out.

-Not sure why, but Claire Danes came up twice yesterday (how random is that?). Boy do women hate her – the vitriol that was flying was amazing. My thoughts: She’s a fine actress, but when you date a man who has a girlfriend at home who's 8 months pregnant, you’re pretty much asking for everything bad thing in the world to happen to you. Or, at the very least, you’re going to be called the c-word (I didn’t say it mind you, but…yeah, I thought it).

-It’s fucking FREEZING in NY right now. I need to locate my hat and gloves ASAP, because the coat alone isn’t cutting it anymore.

-The Princess Bride is on tv right now – easily one of the top 5 movies of all time – this movie taps into my sense of humor in a way that very few things do. Therefore, the top quotes (for me at least) are going to be forced upon you below - you know, I can recite the entire movie by heart…hmmm, I wonder if those brain cells could have been put to better use? Nah:

Vizzini: When I found you, you were so slobbering drunk you couldn’t buy brandy!

Vizzini: Do you want me to send you back to where you were? Unemployed, in Greenland?

Vizzini: He didn’t fall? Inconceivable.
Inigo: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Vizzini: No more rhymes now, I mean it!
Fezzik: Anybody want a peanut?

Inigo: I do not mean to pry, but you don’t by any chance happen to have six fingers on your right hand?
Westley: Do you always begin conversations this way?

Vizzini: I can’t compete with you physically, and you’re no match for my brains.
Westley: You’re that smart?
Vizzini: Let me put it this way, have you ever heard of Plato, Aristotle, Socrates?
Westley: Yes.
Vizzini: Morons.

Buttercup: We’ll never survive.
Westley: Nonsense, you’re only saying that because no one ever has.

Humperdink: Surrender!
Westley: You mean you wish to surrender to me? Very well, I accept.

Westley: What are you? Are we enemies? Why am I on this wall? Where’s Buttercup?
Inigo: Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

King: What was that for?
Buttercup: Because you have always been so kind to me, and I won’t be seeing you again since I’m killing myself once we reach the honeymoon suite.
King: Won’t that be nice. She kissed me!

(and the great one)

Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.

OK, I’m going to stop torturing you guys now – sorry about the deluge of quotes but I fucking love that movie. Obviously I only really on touched on the best here (if you want to add any, feel free), but in the interest of time I’ll finish up by simply saying this: See The Princess Bride again, it’s that good (I refuse to believe there’s anyone out there who has NEVER seen this movie).

Have a great weekend everyone!

Shut up, witch!
I'm not a witch, I'm your wife.

You seem like a nice fellow. I hate to kill you.
You seem like a nice fellow. I hate to die.

Most quotable movie of all time! Never apologize for throwing down some film quotes. I used to use the Princess Bride as a barometer for dating a girl. If I subtely threw down a quote and she didn't know what it was, there was no reason to see her again. Maybe you can add knowledge of the Princess Bride quotes to your point system.

Hope you have a great weekend too! Sounds like you're ready for one.

i haven't seen that movie in ages. mght be time again to rent it.

onthevirg said...

That movie is fantastic. That "Prepare to die" quote has to be like, top 10 quoted right?

Good luck @ the singles party, or whatever the hell you were going to tonight. I wasn't really paying attention.

"You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means"

Princess Bride rules! We only saw it 362 times in college.

Redhead said...

OK, everyone - I didn't read a word of that. I just got back from a work holiday luncheon, and I am drunkety drunk drunk drunk right now (something I try not to ever be when posting), so if you've ever wanted to know anything about is the time to ask.

I checked the blog at just the right time, it appears. Rate the commenters on here; which one is the best? Do you have a crush on yiha? (ducks) Have you ever liked any of the Red Sox players?

Redhead said...

I can't rate my commenters! I love you all! Okay, now I'm just blatantly lying. I will say that onthevirg will always be my favorite, because he was my first commenter. Everyone else can hang together in the rejects room now.

A crush on yiha? Are you serious?

I would have ducked after this question, moron - um, have I ever liked any Red Sox players? Yes, Pedro right after he blew it in Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS (I would have done naughty things to him as a thank you for that).

MCBias said...

Ha, thanks, that was entertaining. Enjoy the Friday gathering. And as for The Princess Bride--what about "Never start a land war in Asia?" When I first watched it, that quote really amused me for some reason. And the extra DVD features are worth seeing as well, just to see how everyone aged/changed over the years.

onthevirg said...

Yeeesssssssss! Suck it bitches!!

Wait...shit, what the fuck is wrong with me? Is NOW the time to ask for boobie pics??

Yes, I'll Have Another said...

Good luck with that...

Anonymous said...

Mcbias SUCKS, please go away, he looks like a freaky Kevin Arnold in that picture!!!!!

Redhead said...

mcb: Yeah, the 'never start a land war' line was simply and oversight.

virg: Stop acting like a moron - you're making me look bad...(hmmm, I wonder how often your girlfriend has said that exact same thing).

yiha: See, you've been coming here for less time than virg, and yet you already realize the pics are never going to happen. See virg? That's called common sense.

anon: Um, Mcb - what did you do to anonymous here? And anon, I have no problem bashing people on this site, but if you're going to do it, man up and use a name.

onthevirg said...

A) I'll give you a wild guess (hint: more than I'd care to admit).

B) It's called persistence!

C) Have you ever actually read any of the stuff I post? What it is this common sense you speak of?
