Another nice weekend in America's most suggestively-shaped state. It was a beautiful sunny day today, and Lori and I took a drive up north, stopped for barbecue, then up through Dade City (one of the 100 top cities in the U.S. to retire in) and Trilacoochee (town motto: "With a name like Trilacoochee, who needs a motto?"), and discovered that Florida actually has some rolling hills. Who knew?
Congratulations to La Bev for correctly identifying last week's quote from Back to School. The '80's were a glorious time. Rodney Dangerfield at the peak of his career, and a nice Wisconsin backdrop. Dangerfield, Kinison, Vonnegut, Downey Jr., so many greats, now dead.
Wait, Robert Downey Jr.'s not dead? To be fair, he doesn't really qualify as 'great', either. It's not acting if you really are stoned out of your mind.
Now, onward to this week's quote. For those of you newbies, there are some rules. First person to correctly identify the original film source of the quote wins the peoples' ovation and fame forever (or for a week, we're fickle...), along with the title of Iron Quote-Guesser. No movie characters quoting other characters, but the original film source. No Googling, no asking Jeeves, either you recognize the quote and the film or you don't. There will be more quotes, don't give up. Snarky comments are always welcome, as long as they're accompanied by a guess. This week's quote:
What can I offer you? Sheep's eyes? Dates? Vodka martini?
Oh, Just Shut Up and Lie Down Somewhere
