I quote movies; it’s what I do. Recently I was asked in a panel interview, “What do you do to relax or blow off steam? When you feel you are getting too overloaded, what do you do?” I am sure I said something serious; I am pretty sure I said I write. And, that’s totally true. I am doing it right now! It wasn’t until much later when I realized I actually quote movies.
Not merely when I am overloaded, stressed, or have too much going on in my brain. I quote movies all the time. ALL. THE. TIME. It’s my equivalent to being in a musical when one guy starts singing a song and suddenly everyone in the joint knows his lyrics and his dance moves. What he really has is a team of people creating the best scene possible with words and choreography.
Well, I don’t need the dance moves. Strangers want to put me on Ritalin when I dance, so as a community service, I don’t dance. You’re welcome. However, if a guy spends months or even years developing what turns out to be a guffaw inducing script, I am going to steal his lines and call them my words. Try and stop me, Napoleon. (< this is a movie quote.)
This entire back story is merely my way of pointing out that, “There are two types of people in this world: those who love Neil Diamond, and those who don’t. My ex wife loved him.”
SIDE NOTE. That was a movie quote. That quote has been sitting on my tongue all day just waiting to be used. Wanting to be slipped naturally into an already happening conversation. That opportunity never came, so I shoved it in to this blog post all awkward like. Just accept it.
Again, I am off course of where I wanted this to go. I am here to tell you I have a side project.
SQUIRREL. (< this is a movie quote)
Anyway, I would love for you to join me. Just click HERE and jump with me to another tab to see what we are working on. See the difference that God is making. See the crazy that he has planned for just an everyday guy or gal who is willing to stand up and say, “WHO’S GOIN’ WITH ME?!” as they hold their gold fish up in the air. (
