These struck me funny this morning. They're from Movie a Minute, a website that allows you to just get the gist of any flick. Normally, I'm not a fan of plot give aways, but I think we're pretty safe here.


John Travolta: I like you, but you're not cool enough.

Olivia Newton-John: What if I dress like a slut?

John Travolta: Now that you're not who you are, I can love you for who I wanted you to be.



Julia Roberts: I'm a hooker, but I don't kiss on the lips.

Richard Gere: I have a lot of money.

Julia Roberts: (smooch)

Let me let you in on a little secret.....

Violet thinks I'm a genius song writer. She is amazed at how fast I can dream up wonderful melodies to go with silly lyrics.
The secret? I just ad lib lyrics to songs that already exist, but ones she has never heard of. For instance, the clean up song, as sung to the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen:

Violet, this room's a mess
You've got toys everywhere
There are barbies on the stairs
Violet, this is really bad
We need to clean up this room right away...

Or a motivational song as sung to Hallelujah:

Viiiiiiiiiolet Ruby
Violet Ruby!
Get your stuff on!
We haaaave to go!

There are plenty more, but you get the idea. She thinks I'm brillant - don't tell!

Cheeky little bugger

Me: Do you have to sprinkle Rice Krispies every where when you're pouring yourself a bowl??

Lila: Hey, that's just how I roll.

Me: ???

Lila had a writing assignment at school this week. She had to write a letter to someone who cooked her a delicious meal.
She chose to write hers to Friendly's. Not me. Not even her Nanny who cooks dinner every Sunday. Friendly's.
It went something like this:

Dear Friendly's,

Your peanutbutter cup Frenzy is the best! I love your peanutbutter sauce, how do you make that? Thanks for a delicious meal.


She wanted me to mail it to the restaraunt. I crumpled it in a ball and buried it in the recycling bucket.
I get no respect.
