Movie Quiz Answers

OK--here are the answers. In retrospect, maybe they were a bit too hard. It would've been easier with wav or mp3 files, but then it probably would've given the movie away. So, in the answers, I've included audio of the quotes I could find online; maybe they'll seem more familiar. Here it goes.
1. "Where da white women at?"--the black sheriff in Blazing Saddles, when he's trying to get the attention of the KKK. http://www.moviewavs.com/php/sounds/?id=bst&media=MP3S&type=Movies&movie=Blazing_Saddles&quote=whitewmn.txt&file=whitewmn.mp3
2. "Crazy drunk driver"--the bum in Back to the Future when Marty returns to 1985. http://www.moviewavs.com/php/sounds/?id=gog&media=MP3S&type=Movies&movie=Back_To_The_Future&quote=drunkdriver.txt&file=drunkdriver.mp3
3. "Andy--you GOONIE!"--Troy as he yells down the well when Andy only sends up the letterman's jacket. (Sorry, I couldn't find a file for this one).
4. "I am an F...B...I...a-GENT"--the immortal Keanu Reeves in Point Break SAD! No files online of this, either (and I looked).
5. "Never rub another man's rhubarb"--Jack as the Joker in Batman.

Bossy girl?

Please don't tell me Ellie is already into the LA style scene. I need to graduate first before she spends of all her daddy's money. Aunt Amy, is this your doing?

Movie Quiz!

So the other day, Brad Sims Google messaged me, said he was tired of studying, and asked for me to distract him. So I decided to give him five random movie quotes, some hard and others easy, but all reasonably answerable by someone from our generation. I was sad that he only got two of five. But, I am happy to report, I am very impressed with Fat Tim, who nailed all five with no hesitation. So let's see if anyone out there can equal his feat--bring on the quotes!
1. "Where da white women at?"
2. "Crazy drunk driver."
3. "ANDY! You GOONIE!"
4. "I am an F...B...I...a-GENT!"
5. "Never rub another man's rhubarb."

Bath Time!

We couldn't resist putting another picture of Ellie in her bath. She loves it! It's so cute--when it's bath time and we start to undress her, she laughs and laughs! And we didn't get the best smile in the picture, but she "talks" and smiles the whole time. Here she is!

Monkey Business

I don't know what monkeys have to do with Christmas, but here is Ellie in her new jammies with Christmas monkeys (check out the candy canes in their hands).

Fweetness in action.

A Hi-Dee-Ho Reunion With Mr. Hanky (This is for you Bonnie!)

Yes boys and girls, it's that time of year again. It's been awhile, but Mr. Hanky has made his way back into our home and he's here to stay. True story. A few years ago, Bonnie and I had a lesbian roommate at the BYU (we're pretty sure she was, even though she claimed to have a boyfriend with whom she enjoyed "woodchipping"). Her old mission companion called her "Parks", in reference to her last name Parker, and she left messages on our answering machine daily asking Emily to go play softball with her. Emily's favorite things to do were: 1). Pick her zits in the mirror; 2). Look at a favorite picture of her and her mission companion giving each other piggyback rides; 3). Write messages (with Bonnie's paper), tack them on the bathroom mirror as if she were management, telling Bonnie and I to clean "our" mold off the shower that she used as well; 4). Tell the bishop that her roommates were breaking the Honor Code; and 5). Suck up Bonnie's necklace in the vaccuum cleaner and never pay her back. She was a pretty cool roommate; pretty, pretty, pretty cool.

So what does this have to do with Mr. Hanky? During our time together as roommates Emily invited her mother and her mother's friend to stay with us for 2 weeks. Yes, 2 weeks. Needless to say, it was a crazy time, mainly because Emily's mom was legally insane and she continually talked about all her many problems (which were mostly bowel related). Her mother carried a gallon bag of meds (I am not joking) and was constantly popping pills.

Well, early one morning during their stay, I ventured into the bathroom and what to my wondering eyes did appear but poop smears all over the outside of the toilet and lid. Naturally it must have been made by Mr. Hanky because no one in their right mind would leave that much poo all over the toilet for everyone to see. I screamed "Eew" aloud, and promptly left.

To make an already long story short, the poo had miraculously disappeared when I returned to the bathroom a half-hour later. Bonnie and I are pretty sure that it was not Mr. Hanky after all, but probably Emily's mother. Or Emily's mother's friend. Or Emily. But Emily's mom WAS the one who frequently told us of her bowel fits. But thinking it was Mr. Hanky makes it a lot easier to remember.

Daddy's Girl

Last night during dinner we placed Ellie and her bear in her Bumbo so she could participate in one of her favorite pastimes...watching sports??? Yes, Andrew has already got to her and turned her into a sports fanatic. She really loves football and will even laugh when watching basketball. Here she's watching Missouri-Oklahoma. She was sad Mizzou lost since she already dislikes Stoops and is sad that LSU might have another chance at the BCS title game.

Greenie's Christmas Wish

Well, we sure are surprised that our first Christmas card of the season came from Aunt Greenie up in the Great Northwest. Well, we liked her card so much we decided to place it on our blog and share it with all.
