By now you’re probably asking, “So, what do Movie Quotes have to do with Quilting Gallery‘s birthday celebration?”
Well, I’ve decided to share some of the more useful movie quotes that My Cowboy and I use here at the ranch all the time with each other. And, yes, we do engage in a lot of laughter around here. It’s pretty constant. And laughter helps celebrate birthdays, so . . .
I thought I’d share our Top Ten favorites, so that you, too, can see if they’d come in just as handy where you live . . . but I couldn’t stop at just ten, so I’ve put our Top Twelve instead.
See if you can guess which movies they’re from! Leave your guesses in the comments. I’ll give a prize to the person who comes closest to getting them all correct. (And keep in mind, we don’t have “real” TV here at the ranch, so we watch a lot of old westerns and comedies on DVD.)
1 ) “I’d do it myself, but I’m feelin’ plumb lazy.”
2 ) “The only chance he’s got atta education is listnin’ ta me talk.”
3 ) “Is you is, or is you ain’t, my con-stitchin-see?”
4 ) “I said I never had much use for one. Never said I didn’t know how to use it.”
5 ) “Needlin’ people is what I do . . .”
6 ) “If you ain’t first, you’re last.”
7 ) “Well, I’ll be a suck-egg mule!”
8 ) “That thar elk is ourn!”
9 ) “What we have here is a failure to communicate.”
10 ) “Do you know who I am? I’m kind of a big deal.”
11 ) “That’s bold talk for a one-eyed fat man.”
12 ) “Some calls it Hell. I call it Hades.”
These may lead you to really wonder about just exactly what goes on around this here ranch in the course of a day, but trust me, we DO use these, and they come in handy every little bit! For example, #4 comes in real handy for me in the kitchen, and I try out #1 all the time; and you can probably guess which of us around here uses #10 the most! There are many many more, but I had to stop somewhere . . .
For your chance at the prize, just leave a comment, numbering your answers according to which movie you think the quote came from — for example: #1 is from ABmovie, #2 is from CDmovie, and so on. (Hint: There might be more than one quote from the same movie, so you can use a movie name more than once, if necessary. And you don’t have to know who said it, just which movie it’s from.)
The person who gets closest to getting them all correct will win the prize. If there’s a tie, I’ll draw a winner at random from all the ones that qualify.
What’s the prize, you ask? Well, that’s sort of a surprise, too. I’m putting together a grab bag with several goodies, including a copy of my latest pattern that I haven’t even revealed yet, some fabric, and some other stuff I’m not telling you about.
The give-away ends on December 17th, at which time I’ll announce the winner, and I’ll also let you know which movies the quotes were from so you can see if you were right. Have fun! And hop over to Quilting Gallery, wish Michele a Happy BlogBirthday, and go visit all the other blogs that are having give-aways in honor of this event. You could win all kinds of goodies!
