I know it's been forever since I last updated, but this isn't really an update. It's a test. To see if I can get this pic to load, since I think it's great. I'll try to do a real update soon. Really!

All right. I'm currently in the home town, kinda getting ready to go to a high school friend's wedding. But before that, I'm gonna run out and eat some lunch, and visit my mom.

Yes, you read that right. I drove down on Thursday, a day earlier than my parents were expecting me. I didn't think it would be a problem, especially since I called home before I left. I should have called Wednesday night, but oh well. When I called, I left a message on the machine, figuring my mom was asleep or in the bathroom, and therefore unable to answer the phone. Which is kinda normal. When I was about 2 hours from home, I called again, to give a heads up. Left another message, still thinking similar thoughts. And I never expected her to call back and say "Ok, got your message, see you in a couple of hours." But. when I remembered an hour from their house that I left my keys to it in my apartment, I kinda got worried. What if she had stepped out or something? (not like I thought she really would, since she had fractured her ankle not too long ago, and was only now starting to go back to work) But, really, not that big of a deal.
So, I get there about 6:15 their time, see my mom's car is still there, and head up to the door. It's locked. Crap. Well, knock. I did. A lot. On the door, on her bedroom window, on the back door, all the while having a mini panic attack. What if she had a blood clot, and is laying dead in her bedroom, since my dad is at work?? When does he get home, anyway?
So, I hang out in the front yard, unwilling to leave in case my dad come home, all the while being eaten by mosquitoes. (my lower legs itch like crazy at the moment)
My dad finally gets home at about 7:40, after I've begun to change clothes in my car, since I had a bachelorette party to attend at 8. He says "Weren't expecting you til tomorrow." I reply that the bachelorette party is tonigt, and that I called this morning, but I left my keys, and Ma isn't answering the door or the phone. He says "Yeah, I'll explain when we're inside."
Apparently, my mother is in the hospital, as she had been throwing up for a while. Turns out she had a bowel obstruction at her hernia (that's what 2 c-sections will do to you), possibly since Monday. So, she went into surgery around midnight.
So, yeah, gonna go visit her again, before I bathe in preparation for my friend's big day.

What an exciting excursion!

On another note, I'll try to do some real blogging again, soon. I have a little meme-like thing, and VBG's photo thing is tempting. But I won't do that quite yet, since most of my pics are here at home, but I don't really have the time to mess with it right now.

Well, untill next time!

I bet you think I'm dead! But I'm not. I'm just being my normal combo of slightly busy and very lazy.

So, a quick list of things I've been up to, since I'm at work right now.

I've moved, since Jenny and Ernest came to Wooster.
I've been working overtime.
I went home for my family reunion.
I'm tired all the time.
I will post before and maybe after pics of the new apartment soon, I promise.
VBG stopped by on her way to the Land of Cleve. (who is he, and why does he get a land all to himself??)

So, yeah....exciting, but not really.

Anyways, until next time (which better be before another 4 months go by!)

Meme for a day

Here is a wonderful meme I borrowed from VBG, because it was loads of fun to play. Enjoy!

The rules:

* Pick 10 (or so) of your favorite movies.
* Find, remember, or look up a quote from each movie.
* Post them here for everyone to guess.
* Strike it out (or something of the sort) when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.
* NO googling or cheating by doing an online search. Cheaters never prosper.
* Commenters should share the fun and only guess one movie.

Amazingly enough, I was able to locate 10 titles that I do thoroughly enjoy. You may see a common thread, as most, if not all, can be called "comedy". Also, there are 2 "bonus" quotes that are not movies, but are things I enjoy watching that are highly quotable.
Well, guess away! (Oh, and Ma, you should be able to comment, too.)

Edit: Bonus points for those of you who can name the character and/or actor of at least one of the lines in your quote. If, after a few days, there are still unanswered quotes, feel free to answer another. I will try to keep track of the "points", and the person with the most might "win" something. While it will in no way be as awesome as a "radioactive monkey prize" could be, I shall try my darndest for it to be worthy of your efforts.

Edit edit: As of 11 PM EST on April 8, the blue are all that have been gotten. I shall give this another day or two, then I will open it up for round 2 of guessing. And the bonuses are still open. Though some of you know what they are, you haven't said so in the comments!

Edit edit and edit some more: Ok, a month after the last edit, and I will highlight the last ones. Green this time.

1.) “Remove head from sphincter, then drive!”
10 Things I Hate About You. Both Rabidmonkey and Danger got this one, so credit goes to both. Yes, this is 10 Things I Hate About You. It's Kat to Michael, the MBA nerd who has apparently gone on to teach math on N3MBERS.

2.) “I've hired you to help me start a war. It's a prestigious line of work, with a long and glorious tradition.”
The Princess Bride. Jenny is correct. This is indeed the Princess Bride, and Vizzini talking to Inigo and Fezzik. Not like I didn't think she could get this one. I think everyone who reads this blog can get it.

3.) “I'm not married, I don't have any kids, but I'd blow your head off if someone paid me enough.”
Grosse Pointe Blank. The American Mutt got it in one. Such a great, quotable movie.

4.) “There's only one reason Christian girls come down to the Planned Parenthood.” “She's planting a pipe bomb?” “Okay, two reasons.”
Saved! The bibliophile hit the nail into the cross, or some other such sacreligious saying, with this being from Saved!, which I have decided I really need to own. Also, Jenny was correct as to the characters.

5.) “I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "I drank what?"“
Real Genius. VBG remembers what college was like, and knows it did not hold any strange guys living in her closet. "Why do you go into our closet?" "To get my clothes, but that's not why he goes in there." "Of course, your clothes would never fit him!"

6.) “Ladies and gentlemen, this tall drink of water headed my way is a pillar of the shopping community who informed me earlier today of a nefarious plan of his to screw my girlfriend in an extremely uncomfortable place.” "What, like the back of a Volkswagon?"
Mallrats. Rabidmonkey knows what goes on at the mall, and knows what deals can be found at it's dirt counterpart.

7.) “Are you classified as human?” “Negative, I am a meat popsicle.”
The Fifth Element. Again, AM got this one, which has some great lines. As long as you over look Gary Oldman, it's a great movie.

8.) “Terrific. Captured by crazed wild pigs and sacrificed hideously before a pagan altar.”
Muppet Treasure Island. Amazingly enough, my brother got this one. Though maybe not too amazing since we'd watch it together. A lot. And he got the character right, as far as I can remember.

9.) “Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun.”
Army of Darkness. E got this one, which isn't surprising, since he was the one who made me watch it in college.

10.) “Oh, but you can't expect to wield supreme executive power just because some watery tart threw a sword at you. Oh but if I went 'round sayin' I was Emperor, just because some moistened bint lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away.”
Monty Python and the Holy Grail. AM was correct again, and I bet many of you are hitting yourselves on the forehead, cuz you knew that one, but just couldn't think of it.

A.) “Christ! Where the hell am I? That's it with the cheap sake. I'm swearing off!”
El Hazard.
Technically, no one answered this one in the comments, but since Jenny and E may be the only people to have seen it, that's all right. It's a great show, at least to me.

B.) "Aww, fuckberries..."
Red vs. Blue.
Rabidmonkey was right again, this is indeed RVB, season 1, as said by my favorite Blue guy, Tucker.

Just a quiz....for now

I'm a Mercedes SLK!

You appreciate the finer things in life. You have a split personality - wild or conservative, depending on your mood. Wherever you go, you like to travel first class. Luxury, style, and fun - who could ask for more?

Take the Which Sports Car Are You? quiz.

Hello, Nameless!

All right. So, it's been over a week, and I'm still not 100% sure about his name, but I think I may have made a decision. Not that it matters, since I'll usually call him "sweetheart" or similar, but oh well. In response to all those who voted for "orange" in Japanese...well, that word isn't really all that good. It's "daidaiiro". But, since that seemed to be the consensus...he is now Dai-kun the Impaler. So, you can call him Dai, Dai-kun, Imp, or even Buddy if you so desire. (that makes total sense if you've read Soul Music by Terry Pratchett). Imp will probably stick the best....

As for the whole "impaler" thing...he has a tendency to climb up to your shoulder, put a paw on either side of your neck, and knead...almost as though he's increasing the blood flow for a tasty snack. Or, so I like to believe.

So, yeah. There ya go.

Till next time! (I gotta go pet the cat)

Happy late holidays!

Sorry, folks...I've been oddly tired a lot lately. And extra lazy.

And since I'm still feeling lazy, I'm not gonna recount my holidays at this time. I will say this, though: I went ahead and got myself the Xmas present I had been thinking about...I gots me a kitty.

He's really sweet, loves to have his head rubbed. But, he still doesn't have a name, so I'll be entertaining any suggestions you might have.

God, I just don't feel like posting much of anything anymore. So, this is probably all you'll get for now.

Sorry, folks.
