"I'm insecure about everything, because... I'm never going to look in the mirror and see this blond, blue-eyed girl. That is my idea of what I'd like to look like."

"I've always taken risks, and never worried what the world might really think of me."

"If you really want something you can figure out how to make it happen."

"If you are going to wait for someone to encourage you to do something, you just better give it up."

"I don't know what keeps me down to earth, but it sure isn't ironing. I send mine out."

"Until you're ready to look foolish, you'll never have the possibility of being great."

"A girl can wait for the right man to come along but in the meantime that still doesn't mean she can't have a wonderful time with all the wrong ones."

"Living your life the way you want to live it is the most important thing, so if you have to pay small prices along the way, it's not important."

“I wouldn't give myself any advice, because advice is kind of bullshit. Take a deep breath and don't take any of it too seriously.”

"I don't need a man. But I'm happier with one. I like to have someone I can touch and squeeze and kiss. But I don't fold up and die if I don't have a man around."

"For better or worse, I never plan my life. I focus on today. I love spontaneity. That is what has put me in some strange and wonderful places in my life."

"Men should be like Kleenex, soft, strong and disposable."

“Don’t take your toys inside just because it’s raining.”

Have a lovely day, and remember cher-ing is caring ;-)

american graffiti

American Graffiti” is a 1973 film set in the Summer of ’62 (although many of the cars and songs were released post-1962) about the last night before leaving for college. My boyfriend and I watched this movie last night to lighten the mood after watching Gus Van Sant’sElephant” (a story based on the Columbine High School massacre), which was incredibly made but hard to watch. George Lucas‘ “American Graffiti” did the trick alright!

Here are some photos and memorable quotes from the film.

“Hey, what do you say, Curt? Last night in town… you guys gonna have a little bash before you leave?”

“Hey… zit makeup.”

“You think I care if you go off? You think I’m gonna crack up or something? Boy, are you conceited!”

“That’s bitchin’ tuck and roll! You know, I really love the feel of tuck and roll upholstery.”

Shhh. Listen, listen! Look at it this way. Now, you got three choices. One, you chicken out and in that case I let Ants tie you to the car and drag you around a little bit and you don’t want that. Right?”
No.”
Two, you foul up and Holstein hears you and, well uh… you don’t want that, right?”
No, I don’t.”
Three, you are successful and you join the Pharaohs with a car coat and a blood initiation and all that, huh?”

What’s your name?”
My name? Mud, if anybody sees you.”

“Girls don’t pay – guys pay!”

“Let’s catch ’em at the light. Jump out and flatten their tires.”

“Hey, you know a guy around here with a piss yellow deuce coupe, supposed to be hot stuff?”

“Man, I can’t keep track of all you punks runnin’ ’round here backwards.”

“You know, what, Terry. I had a pretty good time tonight”

“Get your bugaloos out baby! The Wolfman is everywhere.”

I can’t wait to check out the sequel, “More American Graffiti“.

dazed & confused

Dazed and Confused‘ is a movie made in the 90s, starring (to name a few) Jason London, Wiley Wiggins, Matthew McConaughey, Joey Lauren Adams and Milla Jovovich.  The movie takes place on the last day of school in May 1976. It focuses on the relationship between the kids soon to be entering high school and the new seniors who are eager to finally rule the school. The costumes are fantastic and it’s a pretty funny movie to watch, not a whole lot of substance but definitely an enjoyable flick.

It was the last day of school in 1976, a time they’d never forget… if only they could remember.

I did it when I was a freshman, and you’ll do it when you’re seniors. but you’re doing great. Now fry like bacon, you little freshman piggies. Fry!

Behind every good man there is a woman, and that woman was Martha Washington, man, and everyday George would come home, she would have a big fat bowl waiting for him, man, when he come in the door, man, she was a hip, hip, hip lady, man.

Yeah, well, listen. You ought to ditch the two geeks you’re in the car with now and get in with us. But that’s all right, we’ll worry about that later. I will see you there. All right?

You guys know anything about a party?
No, sir.

Chicks don’t wanna here anything, man. The girls in our classes, they’re all prudes, man. It’s the girls ahead of us, man. They were wild! Our class, they’re worthless, man!

Hey you guys know what that song is about? Its about the aliens. We’re the aliens man, we’re the savages. We’re the savages man.

 I may play ball next fall, but I will never sign that. Now me and my loser friends are gonna head out to buy Aerosmith tickets. Top priority of the summer.

[talking about Gilligan’s Island] Think about it. You’re basically alone on a deserted island with two readily available women. One a seductive sex-godess type, the other a healthy girl-next-door type with a nice butt. So guys have it all, the madonna and the whore. Women get nothing; we get a geek, an overweight middle-aged guy, some nerdy scientific type, I mean…

I’d like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor, insignificant preamble to somethin’ else.

Watch them fly… away

Man, it’s the same bullshit they tried to pull in my day. If it ain’t that piece of paper, there’s some other choice they’re gonna try and make for you. You gotta do what Randall “Pink” Floyd wants to do, man. Let me tell you this, the older you do get the more rules they’re gonna try to get you to follow. You just gotta keep on livin’ man, L-I-V-I-N.

So if any of you haven’t seen this movie, I suggest you do that!
