Stick It! and other weird ramblings...

Thursday, November 13, 2014

So the other day the hubby and I were trying to find a comedy to watch, but nothing sounded very funny (hence the eventual watching of Maleficent). There was a movie I was thinking of watching again, but I could not for the life of me remember the name!

It had gymnastics, a rebel, a couple of funny dudes, Jeff Bridges...and we own it. lol. But I was too lazy to look for it, too stubborn to just imdb Jeff Bridges...

So I've thought of this movie on and off the last few days, and it's driven me crazy not being able to remember the name!

I go to the Family Dollar today, and this older lady in line in front of me is disgruntled about something, the cashier asks her if she wants her change. She replies...

"Two cents, right? Stick it!"


And I'm yelling "That's it!!! THAT'S what it's called!!" and all of Family Dollar thinks I'm nuts. But they can all..

Well, you know.

Anyway, who says that anymore?? I hear "suck it" a lot, but not stick it. lol. SOO weird! Higher power, I tell ya. Alerting me to stick it. lol. But whatev!

On a less funny note, I broke my li'l pinky toe the other day. And not from any fun activity (though if you can do that, I'd love to know how). I kicked my desk leg while turning too fast in my chair (probably to check this darn site emoticon ).

So feel bad for me. And congratulate me on my weight loss emoticon

    First, Diane said OMG again!
    That sucks that you broke your toe! Seriously awful and annoying. However will you be able to do burpees when Nora assigns them in relay?
    It's weird how the coincidences play out to remind us of things. Although I heartily endorse evolution as true, I sometimes think there we are living in a grandly designed computer game and a higher power is planting clues all along the way just for its own Divine Amusement (evolution being one of the biggest of those clues).

    LOL! I usually remember at about 3am.

    Poor toe! Did you tape it?

    I was listening to We are Water by Wally Lamb today on the way to the grocery store. and he worked the above quote into the storie.
    This sentiment is so true, when you think of someone you haven't seen in a while and then they show up around the corner.

    Serendipity means a "fortunate happenstance" or "pleasant surprise". It was coined by Horace Walpole in 1754

    Sparky, I've had weird things happen like this, too. That was a HUGE coincidence that the woman spoke the very words that had been on the tip of your tongue! I really believe everything is so connected. This kind of thing has happened to me before (not the broken toe--too bad about that, but the sort of miraculous "stick it" thing), and it always amazes me. I'm sitting here trying to remember examples from my own experience, but for the life of me I can't! I know what you mean, though, and whenever this kind of thing happens, it always makes me tingle a little with the uncanniness of it all.

    Hope your pinky heals quickly! Don't you just love the word PINKY?!

    You broke you toe?!?!? Damn. And OW!

    And rats ... I am sitting here trying to think of something witty to say about "stick it" and nothing is coming to me.

    Or something about a broken to and sticking it ... but that is even worse because it will have to mean I am even wittier to be able to connect to seemingly unrelated topics.

    And by the way, Walker makes up a lot of words. "Fanfrickintastic"??? Nice word though. So will steal it and say FANFRICKINTASTIC on the weight loss too!

    OMG - you really do crack me up! Personally, I prefer "suck it" because Gus always said that in PSYCH. And I loved that show. I have all the seasons on DVD b/c I'm weird like that. They always make me laugh though ;)

    However, I have no earthly idea what movie you are talking about!!!

    Dang pinky toe! I've broken mine before too - once by kicking the bed by accident. So I have sympathy for you :)

    And Fanfrickintastic on the weight loss!!!!! You are a rock star!!!!! I seriously am PROUD OF YOU. Must have been all that extra activity over the anniversary weekend - yup, yup!
