#SoCS for 12/29/18

I’m late!

I’m late!

For a VERY important date.  

Time for #SoCS.  As I open Reader, click manage, and find the site with gold at the end of the rainbow, I see this waiting for moi:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ask someone else.” Either ask someone for a prompt word or, if you can’t, turn on a TV or a radio and choose a word from the first sentence you hear. Enjoy!

So clever!  That Linda G Hill!  Our hostess with the mostest.  Even when life is throwing her curve balls, she takes care of us.  Me likey! But not that expression.  Gross Claire, so gross!!

That prompt is genius – Wile E Coyote Genius!  We’re gonna get a bonanza today folks.  I can hardly wait to see all the offerings.  If you’d like to take a peek or join in yourself, here are the rules and ping back.  But y’all come back now ya hear :).  I’m leaving the light on.

Shut the front door!

Because you weren’t raised in a barn.

Don’t call me late for supper!

And don’t call me Shirley!

As in Airplane! God rest your hilarious soul Leslie Nielsen.

My goodness, this might be a post about nothing as in a show about nothing as in Seinfeld.  Where the heck did ole Jerry go? I hear he’s a philanthropist.  Warms the heart if that’s true.  I won’t re-watch any of the Senfeld episodes for fear magic memories might be broken.  Does that happen to you?

We were just chatting about stuff and somehow the movie Porky’s came up.  I remember seeing the movie with my friend Joseph.  It was rated R and I was not allowed to see rated R movies.  Anyhow, the movie had been out a while.  The theater at the now defunct Windsor Park Mall was almost empty.  Neither of us were 17 but we got in due to the low crowds and all.  Back then I was 15 going on 16 but looked 12.

Anyhow, we laughed our asses off.  Giggles bouncing off the walls, irritating the two or three other patrons.  Hysterical, that one scene, you know it doncha?  Then many years later I watched the movie again and nothing.  Barely broke a smile.   Kinda weird.  Funny strange, not funny haha.

Speaking of strange, we watched the Avengers Infinity Wars this week.  Dr. Strange was back.  Hubba Hubba Benedict Cumberbatch.  Short-hair Thor was no bueno.  I am sure cutting his hair made his super powers dim.

We’ve been on comic books made into movies kick.  Spanning both DC and Marvel universes.  First up, Aquaman at the theater on Christmas Day.  Then Black Panther.  LOVED this movie all over again.  Then Ant Man and the Wasp.  What’s not to love?  And closing with the aforementioned Infinity Wars.  Look at me hoity-toity – aforementioned.  Who do I think I am?  The Queen.  Maybe I can get a part in the next movie.  Lol.  I slay me.

And FIN.

As always, more to come.

  1. Well, that was fun to read…all kinds of thoughts running through there. I did like the Airplane movies, and we watch Seinfeld in re-runs, as we never saw them earlier on.
    Happy Weekend & Happy upcoming New Year! 🙂

  2. Loved the movie Airplane. I really do appreciate that type of humor – eye-rolling and fun! As for Porkies, I don’t remember much of it other than the Lassie scene. My image of the real Lassie was forever changed.

    Glad you enjoyed your Super Hero movies and, yes, Benedict Cumberbatch!

  3. He used that “Don’t call me Shirley” line in the “Police Squad!” movies, too. One day I had a vintage TV channel on, and they were showing a ’70’s cop show; the two bad guys were Leslie Nielsen and George Kennedy. You know that Lloyd Bridges was in “Airplane,” too? He made the switch from drama to comedy almost seamlessly, too. You have to appreciate actors that can do that, move back and forth between drama and comedy effortlessly.

    Mary’s been watching the old “Charlie Chan” movies with Warner Oland or Sidney Toler playing Charlie. I think, once she finishes them (they’re all freebies on YouTube) she’ll watch the old “Sherlock Holmes” movies with Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. We aren’t much for current movies, or current TV shows, for that matter. The writing is terrible…

    1. I remember that now. Lloyd Bridges was the best. Very versatile.

      I have mixed feelings about today’s movies and TV shows. Ever once and a while we stumble across a gem. B says it’s all crap and no originality.
