Fave Five Friday

This is where I co-opt an overexposed corporate marketing ploy and bend it to fit my own purposes. It's called filler. Please feel free to participate.

1) Fave mixed drink: Jack and Coke

2) Fave board game: Balderdash

3) Fave Bob Marley song: Redemption Song

4) Fave stand-up comedian: Mitch Hedberg

5) Fave line from The Princess Bride: "Why do you wear a mask? Were you burned by acid, or something like that?"

She means how in the world have you not seen that movie at least once in the past twenty years. Go rent it! Right now! I'm sure they have it in Dubai.

Robin, that's a Tom Collins with an orange and a cherry right? Because that is how they are made, despite what others would have you believe.

Robin S. said...

Oh yeah, BT. You got it. Always and only, an orange and a cherry in those puppies.

1) Fave mixed drink: Yuck - I'm a beer girl.

2) Fave board game: Scrabble

3) Fave Bob Marley song: Stir it Up

4) Fave stand-up comedian: Eddie Izzard - I love men in drag!

5) Fave line from The Princess Bride:

There are so many that I don't even know where to start so I'll give a few I love:

Humperdink: Tyrone, you know how much I love watching you work, but I've got my country's 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder and Guilder to frame for it; I'm swamped.
Count Rugen: Get some rest. If you haven't got your health, then you haven't got anything.

I am not left-handed.

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The most famous is never get involved in a land war in Asia, but only slightly less well-known is this: never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha...

Westley: You're that smart?
Vizzini: Let me put it this way. Have you ever heard of Plato, Aristotle, Socrates?
Westley: Yes.
Vizzini: Morons.

Gosh - I can go on forever. I'd better stop now!!!

Robin S. said...

Oh, Eddie Izzard is a scream. I love him.

3. Hm. Not keen on Bob Marley.

4. Hm. Not keen on stand-up comedy.

Am I still in the club?
