And I quote

In high school, my friends and I loved movies.  We watched them hour after hour, and memorized lines — or scenes — or entire films.  I remember way too much of it.

Of course, I have seen about 5 new movies in the last 5 years, so my repertoire is sorely out-of-date.  I try not to embarrass myself in public by spouting quotes from 15-year-old movies.  (Much better to do that on the Internet!)  Privately, I entertain myself with a near-constant commentary based entirely on dialogue from the lives of fictional people.

If I’m tired of dealing with problems, I tell myself “my report will read IDGARA.”

When Riya had to take dimes to school for a fundraiser, I restrained myself from calling it a dime bag in front of her.  Of course, I posted it on Facebook right away.  Robin (we are so lucky to have found each other) commented that it was a good thing it wasn’t full of oregano.

In response to John Edwards’ announcement that he actually did father a child with his … mistress? … we said, “Inconceivable!”  “You keep using that word.  I do not think it means what you think it means.”

A story on the news about someone who’s worthy of a Darwin Award usually prompts me to say, “Your boy’s … different … Ms. Gump.”

Every time there’s a non sequitur in a conversation, I blurt out (this one I just can’t help) “Cesar Romero was not Spanish!”

And, of course, I name my blog based on a scene from a movie.  Because, really, in the end, we are all fruit.
