Kids Say the Darndest Things.

I found a piece of paper in a photo album a few weeks ago with all these spanglish phrases on them and I thought it was pretty cool. See, when my parents lived in Colombia, both of my sisters were born. When Teri began talking, she only wanted to speak Spanish, but was so used to hearing English from realtives that she would speak both the same time. Well, here's a few sentences she'd say:
--"Sophia esta tochando el fan." (Normally it would be "tocando" but she would add the CH sound to make it sound like "touch")
--"Ya la vamos al la churchy."
--"Ay, Sophia! Que messy!"
--"Todd esta donde God, esta happy." (Todd was my dad's good friend who died right after Sophie was born.)
--"La Grandma se fue en big avion."
--"No me like, wash mis manos."
--"Mas high!" (When on the swing.)
--"Mira, Mama estoy swimming!"
--"Quiero la cup little."
--"Estoy buscando la blue beaver."
--"Papi, te compre new socks."
--"Se cayo la pancake alla en la floor."
--"Voy a hide."
And my personal favorite...
--"Todd y God estan jugando Frisbee."

I had a dream last night that involved most of my fellow bloggers and a few people from church.

It began with a tragedy. Bethany Ray killed Josh Haught. (Side note: I have had a recurring dream where Benny is chasing me with a butcher knife and I always wake up before she kills me.) There was sorrow throughout the church and many of us were very upset with Benny. Sophie was looking for Bethany and when she found her, Bethany and Sophie began fighting. (They were scratching eachother. ?????) Then, Benny all of the sudden turned into David Gilbert and began dancing and singing. Chance showed up and began cornering David and began asking him if he knew what the meaning of life was. David seemed to be very scared and tormented by the question. Until John Ma'ae showed up on a floating orange. And I turned into David Gilbert. Everyone from church appeared, and I was speechless. I began fighting like the paladin in Diablo trying to gett all of them back. But nonetheless they surrounded me. and Sir Galahad was there and yelling "Burn HER!" Finally, they all lost interest and Isaiah and Hannah showed up on a plastic horse and took me to their house. When we arrived Josh was there sitting as if he had never died. When i said he was killed, people looked at me funny. And Hannah said, "Oh, Erica, your imagination does work overtime." And then Hannah turned into Duriel (a creature from the game Diablo II) and I began hacking away at her with my mace.
Teri saved me. She was my mercenary and helped me kill Duriel. As soon as Duriel died, Hannah became Hannah again. And I felll asleep at the Ray's house.
When I got home: My fish had died. The End.

Movie Quote of The Month!

It is February Tenth and from now on the tenth of each month is going to be designated Movie Quote Day on my blog. So, today we'll start with a quote from Princess Bride.

Wesley: "You're that smart?"
Vicini: "Let me put it to you this way. You ever hear of Plato, Aristotle, Socrates?"
Wesley: "Yes."
Vicini: "Morons."

Same scene, Semi-related, and fifteen minutes after the last quote.

Wesley: (Chuckles to himself) "You guessed wrong."

Vicini: "You only think I guessed wrong! That's whats so funny! I switched glasses when your back was turned! Haha! You fool! You went against one of the most basic blunders. The most common: Never get into a landwar with Asia. But only slightly less well-known is this: Never go against the Sicilian when Death is on the line...hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha ha ha ha (ACK, thud)"
