And it's good to be the king.
Must apologize, kids, this little Ohi-atus has dragged on far longer than I expected. The old PC is just simply incapable of booting up, and I am without a ready alternative unless I borrow Lori's laptop when she's not using it. Plus, things are just quite busy here in the Buckeye State. There's so much to see, and the new car is already overdue for its first oil change on my watch after the drive from Florida, a weekend trip to Wisconsin, and several client visits in southern Ohio and Pittsburgh as well as our little Sunday drives.
Plus, did I mention that I gave up caffeine? It was a good thing, especially from Lori's point of view, since my snoring seems to have quieted a bit from the decibel level that killed Pete Townshend's hearing. I'm not nearly as high-strung. However, even after almost a month, I'm still experiencing withdrawal from the high levels I used to consume, and I could really use a nap.
I mowed the back yard for the first time yesterday, and uncovered wild strawberries in the process (after mowing half of them...). Since they just re-reseeded the front a few weeks ago, it will be a while before I can mow that, but at least it looks like a real, useable space behind the house now. Just need a pad for the grill and we'll be in business. There are still a few lizards running around the patio, confused about their change of venue. Just wait until winter hits, they won't have a clue what's going on.
Because it's been so long since we here at CDS Enterprises (a division of NFG Worldwide) have run a movie quote, you'd think I'd lob you an easy one. Blade Runner was on last night, and I could throw out a simple one from that gem, but that wouldn't be any fun at all.
Of course, since it's been months since we did one of these, a review of the rules is in order. No Google or other web searches, you should know the quote by yourself. This should be the original source of the quote as well, no characters quoting other movies, and certainly no movies within movies (like 'Touch of Evil' in 'Get Shorty'). Which reminds me. If you haven't seen 'Touch of Evil', 'Get Shorty' or 'Blade Runner', you really should. Netflix those puppies. Should you guess the quote correctly, you'll win the people's fame and ovation forever, along with the title of 'Iron Quote Guesser', along with all associated accolades. Now, onto the quote of the week!
"Oh, my my my my, what an eager little mind. You won't need some of these words for months and months."
Allez guessing, kids!
