So Do You, uh, Like Cheese?





This weekend was amazing my friends. A lot of fun family events took place, and I feel so incredibly blessed. Family is the force of life, really and truly. Now, beyond the cheesy stuff, on Saturday I bought the best movie ever made. Hmmm, what movie could it possibly be you ask? No guesses? She's the Man! Best part? It only cost $5! Ooo, Ooo! I watched it with my sister as soon as we got home and let's just say we spent a good hour and a half laughing our heads off. So hilarious! Also, when I first watched the movie when I was fourteen I thought Channing Tatum was the hunk to end all hunks. I mean, he was tall, toned, and totally adorable. Plus, he played soccer, and back when I was a wee lil' high schooler being a soccer player was basically the core requirement in my "What Makes A Boy Attractive" check list, well, that and playing the guitar. If a guy played soccer and could prodigiously sing me a mind blowing cover of The Goo Goo Dolls' "Name" he was considered prime marrying material. I won't even bother delving into my embarrassing list of "Hunky McHunk Hunks" from those good old high school days. Good thing I've matured SOOOO much since then (she say's with sarcasm). ;) I can't honestly deny, though, that if a guy came up to me and sang "Name" I wouldn't say "I do" in a heartbeat. Well, if he met my more matured and reasonable hopes for a guy I would call husband. ;) Another thing, though? Back in the day I also believed cute lil' Channing was actually 17. Turns out he was actually twenty-FIVE when the movie came out. So much for times when teenagers were actually cast as teenagers. I think in another three years I'll be prime casting material for a teenager in a movie. ;)

Now, don't forget that the winner of the Nikon D3100 will be announced on Thursday and on Wednesday we have Part Two of the "Blogging Essentials" giveaway and it's going to be a prize you will NOT want to miss. Trust me. :) Now, how about some great She's the Man quotes? 
Duke: So do you, uh, like cheese?
Eunice: More than almost any other animal by-product.
                                                                                                                                                         
Andrew: "Dude, why do you have tampons in your boot?"
Viola:[as Sebastian] "Uh, I get really bad nose bleeds?"
Duke: " So you stick them up your nose?"
Viola: "Yeah! You mean you've never done that? Oh my gosh, Beckham does it all the time!"
Duke: "No."
Viola: "Look, I'll show you. You take that off.. and whatever that is.. and you just stick it right in. It absorbs right up!"
                                                                                                                                                         
Toby: Okay, how come when I wanted to ask Eunice out everyone made fun of me, but then Sebastian likes her and suddenly she's cool? Screw you guys. I hate high school.
                                                                                                                                                          
Viola: [on the phone] Mom, I will pick out my own dress. And no, I will not wear high heels. Because heels are a male invention designed to make women's butt look smaller... and to make it harder for them to run away.
                                                                                                                                                         
Viola: So, uh, you play the beautiful game... bros... brothers... brethren?
Much love!

  1. I remember watching that movie in high school. And it's true? Why do they always cast 20-somethings as teenagers? I'm guessing possibly because the teens tend to be an awkward stage for most of us and maybe Hollywood wants to avoid the awkwardness.
