knitting lately and the movie meme

I finished the Perpensockular sock this week, after 2 hours of kitchenering the seam down the entire length of the sock. But it turned out great and fits very nicely. I've started the second sock, but this one is a regular toe up sock so the stripes will go the regular way.

I've also finished the second clue of the Mystic Light shawl. It's going very well and I really like the subtle color changes. The pictures aren't the best, but at least you can see the pattern in one and the color in the other.

My first blog MEME

Since Claudia put the movie quote quiz on her blog, I've been thinking about doing it too. I didn't follow the rules exactly, as I got the quotes directly from the movies and actually watched them to get them verbatim. They aren't too hard and if you've seen the movie it will probably be obvious. Just some of my favorites .

Here are the rules I was supposed to follow...

The rules:

1. Pick 10 of your favorite movies.

2. Go to IMDb and find a quote from each movie.

3. Post them on your blog for everyone to guess.

4. Strike it out when someone guesses correctly, and put who guessed it and the movie.

5. Looking them up is cheating, please don’t.


1. "How dare you say penis to a dead person!"

2. "Thing is Pike, we want things to be nice for you too buddy."

Identified by Robert, 1:32pm, April 6, Movie "Big Eden"

3. "No hard liquor served past 8 o'clock, do you want a virgin?"
"Maybe, but uh, I'll have a couple of drinks first."
Identified by MysterJay, 1:30am, April 11, Movie "Elvira, Mistress of the Dark" spoken by the waitress in the bowling alley

4. "I am thrilled that you could join me for the fabulous first night of the St. Louis leg of my world tour. And when it comes to huge openings, a lot of people think of me."

Identified by Norskybear, 5:56pm, May 25, Movie "Hedwig and the Angry Inch"

5. "Oh, why that oriental sand man let me sleep in my best Chanel!"

Identified by Jana, 4:54pm, April 10, spoken by Auntie Mame's best friend Vera, Movie "Auntie Mame" the Rosalind Russel version (the true Auntie Mame in my opinion) Jana even told me which room the line was spoken in! (the Marie Antoinette Room) You must love this movie too!

6. "You're out of your f**kin mind!"

"Bingo! Come on Jack, free up the little guy. Let him flap in the breeze."

Identified by MysterJay, 3:16am, April 13, spoken by Jack (Jeff Bridges) and Perry (Robin Williams) in the movie "Fisher King"

7. "All the girls drink, it's just that I'm the one that gets caught."

Identified by Jana, 2:43pm, April 11, Movie "Some Like It Hot" spoken by Sugar Kane (Marilyn Monroe)

8. "Arlena and I were in the chorus of a show together. Not that I could ever compete. Even in those days she could always throw her legs up in the air higher than any of us... and wider."

9. "Hi, there. I want to talk to you about ducts"

Identified by Claudia, 10:46pm, April 7, Movie "Brazil"

10. "There's no basement in the Alamo!"

Identified by Archie (Kiltedknitter), April 17, 2:58pm, Movie "Pee Wee's Big Adventure" spoken by Tina (Jan Hooks, Atlanta native) the tour guide at the Alamo to Pee Wee (Paul Reubens)

Most of these you can find in the IMDb database, but a few aren't in there, so please play fair. If you want a little more of a challenge, try and tell me who (characters name) said it too.
