I’m not sure whether or not there is a theme this week. I’ll let you all be the judge of that.
Late to the party? Unsure of what’s going on and what the proper etiquette for the occasion is? You can find all of your answers here.

On to the silliness:
Over the long and/or short years of my jestering, and movie watching, life, I’ve incorporated movie dialogue into my day-to-day lingo. Sometimes I’ve found instances where those quotes fit nicely into situations I’ve found myself in. Maybe these will come in handy for you at some point too.
