Have something really funny overheard?
"Your pupils are evil..." ~Gardener doing a health-and-demonic-possession check on kateydidnt.
Sounds like something you'd have to do.
"The plot lacked significant plot elephants." <-- Kateydidnt on HP 3 movie.
One of the girls in my youth group was talking to me about taking care of big families and she said "Well, you could always have your husband's wife do it..." And didn't realize what she said.
I told her I didn't believe in polagamy. =P She was sooo embarressed afterwards.
LOL, too funny. We need to put up some Gardenerisms.
My daughter was telling about one of her co-workers that talked about his grandfather living with the family. It seems this older gentleman would frequently get up like he was going to go do something, and then would stop and touch his... er... butt.
When they finally questioned him on this extremely strange habit he explained.
"You always remember what you were going to do when you sit down, so I figure there must be some kind of nerve back there that helps you remember things you forget and I am trying to remember what I got up for."
I was at Chili's with a friend, and I let her try my molten chocolate lava cake thing, and for some reason, she came out with, "It's like a Jensen Ackles cake for your mouth!" .......
Oh, and then my mom, when discussing "The Da Vinci Code", said "Oedipus Dei" instead of Opus Dei. My stepfather defined it as "I'm going to kill you because you're in love with the mother of God!"
By order of Mia:
"And there was this really hot timpanist." ~Ish
And from yesterday:
"Why does bread dough have to sound like a sucking chest wound?" ~Ish
From earlier tonight:
Ish: "Where are the normal people in our apartment?"
Gardener: "We keep them in a tiny little box."
Ish: "I wasn't talking about the Barbies."
Kateydidnt: How did they cool it so fast?
DantanaSkywalker: Maybe with a super coolant?
Kateydidnt: I guess they could have used--
Mia: He just heated those up with heat vision, and you're arguing about how it was possible to cool it that fast?
"Technically it's called a fell beast."
"Can we call Jag a Fel beast?"
~Dana and me over Lord of the Rings Trivial Pursuit.
(Basically, me, Ish, and Dana were talking and trying to convince Ish to write more mush instead of angst and we were talking about her Han/Leia stories and...)
Ish: "Well, I wrote a Han and Mara story once--"
Mia: "Eww! That's not mush, that's gross!"
and then a minute later:
Ish: "Remember, I didn't kill anyone for a year. That's enough mush for me!"
Dana and Mia: "Mush is not the absence of killing!"
Mia: "Courage is not the absence of fear, and mush is not the absence of killing!"
kateydidnt: "Be careful crossing the street."
"We have twisted Venetians in our apartment." ~Ish
Okay. .I gotta laugh at this one. It is sort of like reminding me of discussion of love and "gasp" sex vs violence. Somehow it never fails to astound me how such a sweet returned missionary can write and WATCH violence and death without blinking- yet utter the strangest groans at mush and love scenes in the movies...
Yes, yes, go on and mock me.
"You thought of me when you read a quote about decapitation and carcasses?" ~Gardener.
"Similes don't work in the fires of hell." ~Gardener's cousin Hillary
"If you can't eat vegetables or people, what do you have?" ~Gardener.
"Some men lie. Some men molt." ~MiaTieska on the intricacies of romance.
"I'm sorry; I'm incoherent. I was just eating cake batter."
Ha. This was in reference to when we were watching Howl's Moving Castle, and Howl is changing back from bird form to human form, nearly dead, and the feathers just float away in the wind. Ish went "Ewwwlll!"
Well, I've been trying to boost her optimism in romance etc. So I said something like, "No man's perfect. Some men lie, some men molt, you can't have it all."
I've been trying to remember quotes from last night's activity but all I can remember are the geek arguments about canon and midichlorians and the maneuvers in the Monopoly game. I'll post some later if they come to me.
Oh is that what all that talking was about? I guess I spaced about 96% of it all
"You don't want ritual sacrifice? Come on, Gryffindor. Me...you...the paring knife?" ~Ish to her roommate Laura. Don't ask the context. It still doesn't make sense.
"I guess I just keep expecting it to turn into severe." ~Gardener on why she thinks the word "sever" is a strange-looking word.
Jalynn - "If I were a pig I think I'd be a sad one."
Me - "Whys that?"
Jalynn - "Because the only thing you have to look forward to is being turned into bacon or something. If I were I pig I'd rather be turned into candy than bacon. Then I'd be a little bit happier pig."
