"Tomorrow! Tomorrow! I'll love ya, tomorrow!"

Although Annie ranks up there as one of my favorite movie (and soundtracks) of all time, I would not have to say that it's filled with lovable movie quotes.

My favorite quote from a flick would have to be the one uttered by the speed-chowin' Liv Tyler in "Empire Records":  "There are 24 usable hours in every day." 


I would really love to be one of those great people who can exist and refuel on a mere four hours of sleep per night.  I wish I could be the container and vessel for untapped entegy and I wish that I could get everything done in one day that I have been struggling to get done for weeks now.

However, on a brighter note, my schoolwork is going well and no one has smacked me with a Twain novel for being stupid - which really was a fear of mine.  I thought for sure that I'd be in class, sitting in one of those uncomfortable TINY chairs when the prof would look at me and say "Holly, what do YOU think?"  And I'd pee myself in sheer terror.  Yup.  That is one of my big fears.  Not so much the urination part - but the part where I'd be put on the spot, my face would turn red, ears flush to purple and I'd stammer, "Well, I - uh - I - uh - I liked it.  A lot."

So far, so good. And I'm entering the 13th hour...

Yarr-har-har...  Ye be mad as a squid in the sun, wench.  We freeboots have us no time fer dramatics.  But, if me be likin' a film-speak, it'd be the Buckaroo Bonzai "time is what we have to keep everything from happening at once."  .-)

Now, ya scurvy lass, if'n ye not be speaking pirate, ye be walking the plank and tellin' yer tales to the fish and the whales.  Yarr..

Ahhh don't worry...many of them turned red too when they were in school! HA! Actually, best way to avoid that is to ask questions or make comments you know. They because you are talking already they won't pick on you when you don't know!
