Movie Quotes as a Second Language
This picture came up on my Pinterest dashboard, and it made me laugh. It also made me wonder if I could get away with adding it to the pitiful list of languages I speak. Because I went to a Classical Christian high school, I’ve never taken a language that wasn’t dead, so it’ll definitely be interesting when I take German 1 next semester and am expected to actually be able to speak the language I’m learning.
Speaking of weird movie/book trivia , I’ve been rereading the Harry Potter series this summer, so when I went to the Williams-Sonoma outlet (again), and saw the shelves of Fiona’s Sweetshoppe candy, I remembered Dumbledore mentioning that he loves the “Muggle sweets” called Sherbet Lemons. My Mom would want to know why I remember useless trivia like this and not more important things like math formulas or things on my to-do list, but in my defense, I just read Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone two or three weeks ago, so it was sort of fresh in my brain.
Sadly, I think I’ll have to wait a few weeks before I visit the Williams-Sonoma store again; I’m a little worried they’ll start to recognize me soon, partly because of a skirt malfunction I had there (don’t ask), and partly because I get excited about random merchandise and take pictures with my phone. Cause, you know, that’s completely normal behavior.
And I didn’t forget about my new plan to come up with food to go with themed movie nights, but Thursday night my office had their big board dinner, so I had to switch my cooking night to tonight. But I’m making a meal inspired by the Hunger Games that happens to be a bunch of recipes I’ve never made before, so hopefully it turns out alright!
