Movie Madness Monday: My life begins today edition
Yes, it is time for Movie Madness Monday again, and I am feeling giddy! It's spring! It's testing season! It's spring! Barry Bonds is droning on and on about himself again, and he probably won't shut up for the next 6 months!
Did I mention it's spring?
So, each Monday I pick a movie and drop in a few of my favorite quotes. You then stop your damn lurking and contribute a quote of your own, from the same movie, if possible. I will not tell you the name of the movie until Wednesday. Now, you could cheat and type the quotes into a search engine, but that would be no fun.
So, play ball!
"The world is made for people who aren't cursed with self-awareness."
"I've tried all the major religions, and most of the minor ones. I've worshipped Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms, and Isadora Duncan. I know things. For instance, there are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball. When I heard that, I gave Jesus a chance. But it just didn't work out between us. The Lord laid too much guilt on me. I prefer metaphysics to theology."
"Strikeouts are boring! Besides that, they're fascist. Throw some ground balls - it's more democratic. "
"You guys! You lollygag the ball around the infield! You lollygag your way down to first! You lollygag in and out of the dugout! You know what that makes you??! Larry!"
**** Wednesday Update: Our paean to the Boys of Summer and the people who love them is:
As we face the home stretch of the school year, let's play the game with verve and joy-- and, hopefully, a lot less profanity-- than our dear Durham Bulls! And did Susan Sarandon ever look lovelier?
