Frankly My Dear, I Don’t Give A…
I really don’t about a lot of things. New medicine for me means the return of side effects until my body gets used to the new dosage. This means some days I am extremely tired, some days I am nauseous for hours, some days I am lightheaded and have to sit constantly. There are lots of other side effects that go along with taking Lyrica, thankfully only a few of them have had an effect on me, which also has an effect on how much I actually get done on any given day. In the past, it has taken me about 2 weeks or so to get accustomed, so hopefully that will happen again and I can back on a more normal schedule. I’ll write some more about what’s been occuring with me and my ongoing medical saga soon.
Back to the last question from Tuesday, which was:
What is your favorite movie line or quote?
I do have a few that I actually like. It’s funny how we can feel that our lives are impacted by certain movies. Some films seem to come along at a particular time in our lives and just fit perfectly with what we are feeling are need just then. And then we hear it – just the line we needed to hear from the character or to the character we most relate to. It can feel like they are talking right to us and we always remember it. However, there are also those lines and catch phrases that seem to become part of our culture almost immediately. The American Film Institute compiled a list a while back of what they think are the top 100 most famous quotes from movies. If you want to check it out for yourself, you can look here. As for me, there are a few quotes that really stand out for me. Being a baseball buff, the speech from James Earl Jones’ character in “Field of Dreams” perfectly describes how baseball can make you feel. I am also a big Humphrey Bogart fan and “The Maltese Falcon” is one of my favorite movies. At the end of the movie is my favorite line, when someone asks him about the falcon and he replies that it is “the stuff that dreams are made of,” a loose interpretation of a line from Shakespeare’s “The Tempest.” I just love the way the line is delivered and the context of it. Another of my favorite movies, “The Godfather” produces a lot of great lines. For that matter, so does “The Godfather II” which I think may even be better than “The Godfather.” Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) says in “The Godfather II”: “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer,” something that has become part of our vernacular and is used often. Those are just a couple of my personal favorites.
Thanks to everyone who took the time to answer and a special thanks to David Wells, who answered me on Twitter, sort of (you can check the comments from my last blog post to see his answer). Now let’s move on to today’s question. I have had a lot of relatives getting married this year, so I thought this might be a good question to ask:
What do you remember most about your wedding day?
Wedding days can be kind of a blur for the bride and groom, but there are always a few things that stand out in your memory about that day. Even if you didn’t have an elaborate wedding, I am sure there is something you have never forgotten about it, so what is it? Think about it and let me know. You can answer on here, or on Facebook or on Twitter. I’ll ask some people on Twitter as well and see how they answer. I’ll post my answer tomorrow.
I did manage to post the next installment of “Below the Surface” yesterday if you want to check it out. Thanks to those who have read it and sent me feedback; it’s greatly appreciated. Hopefully I will be able to finish that one soon so I can start on another one. If you ever have anything you would like to contribute, such as a question, poem, story, photo or whatever, just drop me a comment or a note and let me know. Any and all participation is highly encouraged and appreciated. Until next time then, enjoy your day and don’t forget to do something creative today!
