Movie Mania Monday - who says you can't go home again?

(Most notably, this guy does. But he's wrong.)
As much of a joy it is to see new places, there is something so comforting about sleeping in one's own bed, snuggled against one's bitsy-pookums and thinking no thoughts for a change. It's nice to be here for a few days again, just to get my head right.

Contest-wise, nobody even TRIED to answer last week. Geez, maybe you could rent a few classics, dear reader? Put forth SOME sort of effort?

Now, for this week's contest. Remember the rules. First person to guess correctly the original source of the quote wins a prize - no movie characters quoting other movies. The prize consists of the people's ovation and fame forever (and the title of Iron Quote-Guesser). La quote de la semaine:

I was feeling tight in the shoulders and neck, so I called down and had a Shiatsu massage in my room...and the tightness has completely disappeared and been replaced by unbelievable pain.
Allez guessing!!!

Finally, a movie I know! That would be Lost in Translation for 1000, Alex.

Welcome home, Elliott! "Bitsy-pookums," eh?


Elliott said...

Ding-de-ding-ding...ding...We have a winner! (even though the correct response would have been..."What is Lost in Translation, Alex?)

Yes, Lori is my bitsy-pookums (courtesy of Calvin and Hobbes), my little cauliflower, my cabbage, my Brussels sprout.

Like Joe doesn't have a pet name for you.

Oh I saw, "Lost in Translation," and I hated it so much I flushed every moment of it out of my mind! LOL!

BTW..."Bitsy pookums??????????"

Mary said...

damn it Bev!
Actually, while I saw LIT, I would have never guessed :)

Well, I think Mala would object if her husband JOE had a pet nickname for me, though he does call me sweetie sometimes when he gets flustered. Ha ha!

My husband JIM doesn't call me much except "Her Royal Highness" and occasionally "Mistress Beverly." In his defense, it is hard to talk with those ball gags in.

Oh, and cabbage & Brussel sprouts? Throw in lima beans and you've got my 3 least favorite veggies. I am sure that Lori is a very nice lady and worthy of a nicer nickname than Brussel sprout! Come on, dude! How 'bout something delicious and succulant like "Peach" or "Mango" if you're going for the whole food theme?

Ok, I need to stop commenting now. I did mention that I'm exhausted today, right? Blame that.

Joe, Jim, Jedediah, I can't keep names straight. Be grateful I managed to get the initial correct.

The cabbage-y references are from the French terms of endearment and usually in jest, ma petite choufleur!

Be nice and share!
