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.
Loved your poem!
Thank you! Thanks for hopping over there to read it, too.
“Your old room is just the way you left it” Ha ha that’s great!
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.
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.
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!
