OH MY STARS!!!


OH MY STARS!!!
I just posted and checked my blog and you can't read it!!! I'm reposting again and will calmly walk away from the computer. Hope y'all are having a better day than I am.

So this morning, I'm working on my blog for today and tried to post my pretty pictures and they weren't posting. I would get this irritating x instead of my picture. I decided to shut the computer down and start over, but I wanted to save what I'd written so far. I went in and told it to post at a time in the afternoon, thus it would save and not post onto the blogosphere. Well, as luck would have it for some reason, only the blog gremlins know why, it posted for everyone to see. Talk about frustration.

And I'm still unable to post pictures to this blog. What the hey??? I even switched to my laptop and tried a different server.

Anyway because my post is already out there, I'm posting again to explain my blunder. Talk about major frustration!!! Hang in there with me and I'll try to paint a picture with words.

Now for today's post...
Something usually comes up over my weekend that I blog about on Monday, but last weekend was unusual. I didn’t even go to a movie.

Movies have long been a favorite pastime for me and my family. We go to the theater a lot. And it is soooo convenient that a megaplex theater is within walking distance of our home. It’s awesome. Anyway, we’re one of those families where you can say a movie quote and someone will know what character said it and exactly what movie it was from. Well, the other day we received a magazine with an article titled 50 Movie Zingers. We had so much fun trying to see if we knew the top ten quotes that I thought you might like to join in.

What I’m going to do is list the quote and you see if you can guess what movie it came from and who said it? I’ll post the answers Wednesday. Some of these you’ll know right off. Have fun and no cheating by looking up the quote… :0)

10) “You talking to me?”

9) “Fasten your seat belts. It’s going to be a bumpy night.”

8) “May the Force be with you.”

7) “All right Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up.”

6) “Go ahead, make my day.”

5) “Here’s looking at you, kid.”

4) “Toto, I’ve got a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.”

3) “You don’t understand! I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am.”

2) “I’m going to make him an offer he can’t refuse.”

1) “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”

Have fun and let me know how you did.

  1. I don't know the names of all of those movies but I've seen most of them. ;) And about the pictures, it's an internet issue, I believe. I haven't been able to see pictures on ANYONE'S blog today. =[

  9. I've been having problems with pictures, music, videos, all kinds of stuff. I thought it was an issue with my computer, but maybe not. I think it's on blogger cause YouTube and other sites work just fine.

    By the way:
    I’d like to invite you and your readers to join us in a blogging challenge for the month of April. Check it out at Blogging From A to Z

  10. I had the same problem, and I think it was servers that were having troubles. Or possibly Blogger.

    Loved the movie quotes, and might even know most of them. Guess I'll see on Wednesday when you post the answers. :)

  11. I won! I won! Thank you, Kathi. Looking forward to the book.

    These were great quotes. Two I didn't know, and one I'm not sure of. I've narrowed it down to two different movies.
