search term silliness

It has finally happened!  I’ve gotten enough off the wall search terms collected to get them into a post to share with all of you.  That’s not just awesome, that’s awesomesauceh.

On with the silliness:

You searched: “what is being struck with cupids arrow

Love.  Or, lust, I guess.  And perhaps a trip to the emergency room.  It all kind of depends on what cupid looks like and what the arrow is made of.

Executive Search Dating

You searched: “what does it mean to be called “matticus”?

Seriously?  That is just the most awesomesauceh search ever!  Am I right?  Why am I asking you?  I know I’m right!  To be called Matticus means you are silly, and a jester (which isn’t the same thing as being silly) and passionate, and a good guy who doesn’t always finish last, and a writer, and a friend.  You exude calm and patience, love and understanding.  You are a shoulder to cry on.  You are the first to jump to defend those in need.  Being called “Matticus” means you are a pretty swell guy, if I do say so myself.

You searched: “pilot brother birthday message

Well, you came to the right place.  I just so happen to have two posts that cover that very thing, right here and here.

You searched: “softly fades the light of day

Aw, isn’t that nice.  Well, unless you were hoping that my blog would just fade away, that’s less nice.  I’m guessing this took you one of my sunset or sunrise posts, which is good, because I think those are all pretty fantastic.  Though, this line is actually from a Boy Scout song:  “Softly fades the light of day, as our campfire fades away.  Silently each scout must ask, have I done my daily task?  Have I kept my honor bright?  Can I guiltless sleep tonight?  Have I done and have I dared, everything to be prepared?”

Wow.  I didn’t Google that, so it could be slightly off, but I’m impressed with how much of that I remember.  *pats self on back*  Go me.  We used to sing that song at camp at the end of our campfire programs at the beginning and ends of the weeks we spent there.  Good.  Times.  Not joking.

You searched: “meg ryan my ass is twitching

Well, that’s fascinating and all, but why do you think Meg Ryan would care?  To each their own, I guess.  However, I’m guessing your search was really for this post, but the quote is actually from Kevin Kline…  Maybe that’s close enough.  I won’t judge you.

It's hard to top Meg Ryan's performance in this scene but these ladies gave it a shot. Picture: Supplied

You searched: “coconut milk is a natural laxative tom hanks”

That’s good to know.  I think.  Maybe…?  I guess it could be useful information should I ever find myself cast away.  Though, again, I find your search curious.  Are you telling Tom Hanks?  He already knows.  He’s the one who informed the rest of us in the first place.

You searched: “why does robin williams say its not your fault

Robin Williams is insane, in a good way.  Who knows why he says anything?  That being said, I’m fairly certain what you were looking for could be found right here, partially.  For the rest of the answer you are going to have to watch Good Will Hunting.

You searched: “your life is a echo


Tred carefully.  That sounds like an insult… and we don’t take too kindly to those around here.  Are you saying I’m not original?  Are you saying I’m just a fading copy of a copy of a copy of a copy?  That seems harsh.  What have you done recently?


Q and A Kiss

Another week, and another Q and A put together because one of the faithful kingdomites asked for a movie specifically.  This week’s set, all quotes from the movie French Kiss, was thrown together based on a request from Jodi Lea.

Do you have a movie you’d like me include in these Q and A sessions?  Or a theme?  Or a specific actor?  Let me know in the comments and I’ll see what I can put together for you.

(All previous Q and A iterations are here.)

As a reminder:  The Q’s are life situations you may find yourself in, and the A’s are the corresponding quotes from movies that you could considering using in those situations if you were mad like me.  But, I am a professional Jester, so take that into consideration before trying them on your own.

*WARNING – this Q and A is less “PG” than some – it’s not terrible, but there are some words that may not be child friendly if you are concerned about such things.*

Q: What should you say when someone asks what your talent is?
A: “For me, bullshit is like breathing.”
– Luc (Kevin Kline)

Q: What should you ask when someone is bemoaning the fact they had a bad night at the tables?
A: “You lost your birthright in one hand of poker?”
– Kate (Meg Ryan)

Q: What should you say when someone you don’t like is complaining about someone else you don’t like?
A: “Of course you know him. All you bastards know each other.”
– Kate (Meg Ryan)

Q: What should you say when a friend is going on and on about how perfect everything is for them at the moment?
A: “When people tell me they are happy, my ass begins to twitch.”
– Luc (Kevin Kline)

Q: What should you say when someone asks if you’ve seen the most recent French film that is gaining notoriety at all the film festivals?
A: “Those French. They hate us, they smoke, they have a whole relationship with dairy products I don’t understand.”
– Kate (Meg Ryan)

Q: What should you say when someone asks how your blind date went?
A: “I met this woman, this apparition, this goddesse.”
– Charlie (Timothy Hutton)

Q: What should you say when someone asks why you don’t like to fly?
A: “I get around as nature intended: in a car.”
– Kate (Meg Ryan)

Q: What should you respond when someone asks if you like them?
A: “I like you. But I don’t like the way you say with your face all scrunched up, “you’re French, aren’t you?” And then I don’t like how you say, with your eyes all squinty, “all men are bastards.””
– Luc (Kevin Kline)

Q: What should you say when there is announcement on a plane and the person sitting next to you asks what it was (they missed it because they were too busy playing with their iDevice)?
A: “The pilot said there is a crack in the engine, but not to worry, he’ll take off anyway.”
– Luc (Kevin Kline)

Q: What should you retort when that same persons says, “I guess I should pay attention”?
A: “Maybe if you did, you wouldn’t have that little problem we’re not supposed to talk about.”
– Kate (Meg Ryan)


A great film with top class actors to be sure, but still, for the simple plot this one could also have been included in the “films that punch above their weight series.”  As far as rom-coms go, this one offers a depth and script above and beyond.  That could just be due to the performance of Meg Ryan and Kevin Kline though.  What do you think?  Here there be jewelry thieves and silliness and love, above all else there is love, and some monsters too.  Thanks for playing along.
