Movie Quotes

I stole this from another blog I read. :) Have fun, and good luck!!

1. Pick 15 of your favorite movies.
2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.
3. Post them here for everyone to guess.
4. NO GOOGLING/using IMDb search functions.
5. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.

1. She's so deliciously low. So horribly dirty.

2. There's nothing more irresistible to a man than a woman who's in love with him.

3. Don't mess with the bull, young man. You'll get the horns.

4. The video arcade is down the street. Here we just sell small rectangular objects. They're called books. They require a little effort on your part, and make no bee-bee-bee-bee-beeps. On your way please.

5. Whoo-hoo-hoo, look who knows so much. It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there's usually only one thing you can do. -- Kathy in OC -- Princess Bride

6. I want you to round up every vicious criminal and gunslinger in the west. Take this down.
I want rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, shit-kickers and Methodists.
-- Kathy in OC -- Blazing Saddles

7. The Lord, the Lord Jehovah has given unto you these fifteen...
[drops one of the tablets] Oy! Ten! Ten commandments for all to obey!
-- Kathy in OC -- History of the World Part I

8. "No visible tattoos." "No revealing clothing." "We're both screwed. At least you're used to it"

9. An unhappy alternative lies before you. Your mother will never see you again if you do *not* marry Mr Collins, and *I* will never see you again if you *do*.

10. Where are you going? To him? To be a whore to a gutter rat? "I'd rather be his whore than "your wife.

11. Oh, come on, ladies. God wouldn't have given you maracas if He didn't want you to shake 'em. -- Lou -- Dirty Dancing

12. That's a B. It's the first letter of a seven-letter word that means your late father.

13. My sister's the actress, mother. And I'm *not* a cheap stripper. I'm the highest-paid in the business.

14. Teriffic. I'm about to get killed a million miles from nowhere with a gung-ho iguana who tells me to relax.

15. A toll is a toll, and a roll is a roll. And if we don't get no tolls, then we don't eat no rolls. I made that up.

ALQ Update

There hasn't been as much progress on this one (or any of projects) as I wish there had been. I've been taking this one to work to work on. Since I only get 20 min breaks, it is a great piece to work on. I can to all the borders without a pattern because they are all the same.

I've done a little bit of work on my Blue Moon Faery, but even that isn't really enough to take a picture of. BoInk hasn't had any progress made on it, and neither has Monopoly. I think when (if) I ever finish ALQ I'll start taking Monopoly to work. Then I don't have to worry about DH finding it. LOL

Pattern Wishlist

I spent a good portion of the evening tonight looking at patterns and making up a wishlist. I love do that and hate it at the same time. I already have more charts than I know I will ever stitch. In fact, I think I am going to go back through them and weed out some. I can send them off as RAKs to people on a couple of my groups. That way at least someone will hopefully get some enjoyment in them. :)

Anyway....if you want to see what kind of things made it to my wishlist you can see them here.

In other news, I was woken up this afternoon (remember I get off work at 10am on Sat and Sun) by the sound of my house falling apart. Not really!! But the thunder was so loud and cracking that I thought the ceiling had fallen in somewhere at first. I laid in bed for a minute before I realized that it was storming very very very badly. Apparently right over my house! LOL! I could hear that one of my dogs was hiding in the bathtub because she couldn't get into the bedroom and under the bed. The poor scared thing! As soon as I opened the bedroom door she scooted for the bed and hid. The other one wouldn't leave my side. Thankfully the storm ended less than an hour later.

Well, I've gotten all my ornament stitched. All I have left to do is make it up into an actual ornament. LOL

I also started on Monopoly. I've gotten most of the GO square done. I don't have a picture of that one. DH came home before I could get a photo of my progress done. I'd take one now, but he's asleep. And knowing my luck he'd wake up as soon as I spread it out. LOL.

I also got a little work done on BoInk and ALQ. Neither of which deserved a photo so I didn't take one. I've been taking ALQ to work to work on it there, but haven't been doing much. The reason is because I'm also taking a book. Books are my kryptonite. That's all there is to it. :(

Christmas Ornament

Well, this weekend I spent all my stitching time working on my ornament for the ILCS Blind Ornament Exchange. Everyone stitches an ornament, we all send them to one of the moderators, and then she sends an ornament to everyone that sent one in. I've gotten all the stitching done except the border (still not sure if I'll do it yet) and the backstitching. The pattern was a freebie offline and didn't have the floss numbers for the backstitching, I'm going to have to make it up as I go along. :( Hopefully it will turn out alright. I am still not sure exactly how I am going to finish it either.

Still using the camera phone. Now you have your choice...green or blue. ;) lol

I haven't begun my Monopoly piece yet. As far as I know, Steve (DH) still doesn't know that I am going to be working on it. I will probably start next weekend if I get the ornament done. I figure I'll work on BoInk and BMF while he's up and then Monopoly Sunday and Monday after he goes to bed.

One More Start

Well, it's not a start yet but it soon will be. I am finally going to start work on Monopoly...just like my DH has been bugging me for years to do. LOL The thing is, I'm going to try and keep it secret from him. Not sure how well that is going to go, but I've got to try. I've signed up for the Monopoly SAL on Yahoo! Groups. I'm hoping that it will motivate me to keep me going. I'm really wanting to get this done for Christmas and if not that at least for DH birthday in March.

I've also started a BAP for myself. I've started Mystic Stitch's Blue Moon Faery I'm not sure how I can NOT do this. It combines several of my favorite things into one beautiful work of art: Blues, Fairies, and Owls. Just about the only thing missing is a book. LOL I don't have any pics of this one. I just hate taking pictures with that phone camera. It makes everything look nasty. I don't have a flatbed scanner or I'd use that.

I've only gotten about 250 stitches or so done on her and all the blues would never show up without a good picture.

One door closes...another one opens. :)

I have decided to give up on the Marquoir. I've tried for several days now to get back into it and I just can't do it. I think the piece is beautiful, but I don't think it is for me.

So...I decided to cut off the bit I had stitched on and immediately start work on a new piece. I've joined Ink Circles Mystery SAL, Book of Ink Circles aka BoInk. I've picked out my colors and started. Once again the picture quality is lousy. Please forgive. :)

Edited to add: The fabric is a 32ct dove grey. The DMC I think I will be using are 820, 413, 797, 550, 3818, 340, 3750, 518. I'm a little concerned about a couple of the colors, so I might still change one or two of the colors that I haven't used yet.

My progress so far (1 day)
