Sleep and Movies

I slept till the alarm today! Yay! I did wake up at 4:15, looked at the clock, said, "I'll get up and wri-zzzzzz."

I was talking to our computer teacher about the leaky roof and she said that our assistant coach has a carpentry business, so I went to talk to him and he's coming to give an estimate this week. We think we're just going to do part of the roof, from the kitchen over, which should keep the cost down. Of course, we're expecting rain for the next TWO WEEKS. BAH! And the bad thing is, he's someone I work with, so I have to clean up the house ;)

I stole this from Marianne, I'm pretty sure.

HR Pufnstuf. Funny story. The movie came out the day my brother was born. I was staying with my grandparents and I LOVED HR Pufnstuf. The characters were going to make an appearance at the theater, so my grandfather took his truck and parked it at the theater the day before so we'd be able to see.

Found out years later, the dh was there that day, too.

Good LORD, Mar...I was a PufNStuff nut back then. I had a HUGE crush on Jack Wild. I was sad to hear he died this year. He was my first real crush when I was a kid.


Elisabeth Naughton said...

ROFL. No wonder I like you.

I LOVE the Princess Bride...Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my father prepare to die.

Return of The King made me cry buckets.

And I laugh out loud at Ghostbusters. STILL.

Great list. ;)

Great meme! I'm going to steal it. I have nothing to blog about today!! And I loved the Princess Bride. I'm always saying 'Hello, my name is Indigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.' It always makes me laugh. I think that's my all time favorite movie quote.

No surprise that I could have practically written that meme. LOL

MJFredrick said...

REALLY, JoAnn?? PufNStuf, too!!! COOL!

Elisabeth and Kelly, that's my favorite quote from Princess Bride. I can't reconcile Inigo with the guy from Criminal Minds, though!

Nope, Natalie, no surprise at all!
