I got engaged this year! If I don't get at least twenty comments of congratulations on this post, I'm shutting down the blog forever.is squatting at 12 comments, and Roboseyo remains in danger. Come on, readers. It's not like I asked you to send money or something. Is it that only twelve of you read to the end of the post? Cripes.
But Korean moving companies, comments or none, still rock. A swarm of people comes into your house, loads everything into baskets boxes and things, trucks them to your next place, and unloads them. The guy who did the bookshelves even had a system whereby he returned all the books in the same order on the shelves as they were when he boxed them. All Girlfriendoseyo had to do was point and say "put it in this room" or "that room" and all I had to do was stand around looking handsome (and that takes effort for me), and be tall once or twice.
2. Girlfriendoseyo's mom, Omonim, is cute, and I like her more and more. Today, we discovered that she likes bubble wrap: I grabbed some from the dishes box, and she, Girlfriendoseyo and I had a little moment together, popping bubble wrap. It was brilliant. She even stored some away for later.
3. OK, I was thinking about this, and I'd like to open the question for comments. What was the movie quote of the decade? I mean, a really memorable movie quote has to be usable, it has to be instantly recognizable as "from that movie" - "Frankly, dear, I don't give a damn" "make him an offer he can't refuse" and stuff. (AFI's 100 best movie quotes)... it also has to immediately evoke the movie in question - Saw's "I want to play a game" doesn't evoke the movies quite clearly enough. In fact, if I have to name the movie it's from, it doesn't belong on the list.
The '90s had some good quotes:
"Does that make you horny, baby?"
"I know kung-fu"
"I see dead people"
"My momma always told me life is like a box of chocolates."
"I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti. FUPFUPFUPFUPFUP"
like, ALL of The Big Lebowski
and so forth... but what about the naughty oughties? This writer can't come up with anything, and when I tried to think of some good ones, I kept thinking of quotes from '90s movies. So, readers, what IS the quote of the oughties?
Here are the ones that come to mind; a few might have come from an article on this topic that I read a while ago... and I want to know what YOU think might be the movie quote of the decade.
Here are the ones that I think qualify: Immediately identifiable, evocative of important moments, and quotable - you know how to deliver the line:
"I drink your milkshake"
"This is sparta"
"My precioussss" and "YOU SHALL NOT PASS"
"I wish I knew how to quit you"
"Why so serious?"
"I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. Not like here. Here everything is soft and smooth."
What am I missing?
On the second tier: a lot of will ferrell
"Hey Honey! We're streaking!"
"I'm kind of a big deal" or "Stay classy, San Diego"
"He only has one face!... I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!" or "What is this? A school for ants?"
"Rock stars have kidnapped my son!"
Help me out here, readers. What are the other most memorable quotes from the '00s?
