Movie Quote Monday – A Christmas Story (special edition)

The Byronic Man has a weekly contest on his blog, and I won the last one – I’m so excited!  I wrote a little poem about setting fire to the personal possessions of your not-so-significant-other-anymore-since-he-just-dumped-you.  Autobiographical.  (Just kidding!)  You can read it here.  I think you should go do that right now.  I’ll wait.

Anyway, I found out Saturday after work, and A Christmas Story is the first thing that popped into my head:

Sweed:  …what is that?
—Dad:  It’s a major award.
Sweed:  A major award?

Dad:  I won it.
—Sweed:   Damn, hell you say, you won it?
Dad: Yeah.  Mind power, Sweed, mind power.
—Ralphie:  The entire neighborhood was turned on.

You have permission to be turned on by my major award: I get to be Blogger Of The Week over at The Byronic Man (damn, hell you say).  It’s true!  He put my picture up, with a testimony about my elegance and shark-fearingness.  It’s totally awesome.

If you haven’t been over to his blog before, you should go check him it out.  I can’t guarantee you’ll end up being a major award winner, like me, but I don’t think you’ll regret it.

    • Thank you for going to check it out! I almost it cut out; I didn’t know if anyone else would think that was funny. I was thinking, “what else can I do to this poor guy?” Of course – call his clingy momma (who hasn’t touched his room since he left home after high school) and tell her he’s moving back to live with her!

      • It was the pièce de reéistance! It just cracks me up!

        • Dang! I looked up the Alt codes for all those accents and then I spelled the word wrong anyway…

          • Haha – I never would have known the difference! You could have written that any way you wanted 🙂 and I would have thought it was right.

  3. I haven’t regretted going to either Byron’s site, or yours. I almost drove past your place two years ago, but had to re-enter Canada through Buffalo, so I hung a left at Richmond. Have you ever been down to the Louis Ginter Gardens there?

    • Yes, I have! I’ve been once in the day time and twice for their winter light festival. I just did that with my family this past January and I posted some pictures here on my blog, if you’re interested.

  4. The poem is great, reminiscent of William Carlos Williams. But your is more fun! I love all the images, especially going home to his old room.

    • Hey, that was the contest! It was to write your own poem in that style. It was fun, too. Thanks for going over to read mine!
