Mariposa's Monday Fever

My dear friends it's a beautiful Monday once again!




Fun Monday's theme this week is Give Me 5s! These are about Things Left Unsaid with a Twist...the twist is...well below what I.T. Guy sets for this week's Fun Monday.


I need YOU (yes, the wonderful YOU!) to pick 5 memorable lines from 5 different movies (if you could tell us which character said it and to whom, would be a bonus)...and tell us to WHOM (who in the people in your life) you could have said those lines.

So here are my 5s!

(1)
First rule of leadership: everything is your fault. - Hopper, A Bug's Life
I'd say this to: To my boss and to all other managers at work.

(2) The older you get, the sillier you get.- Clairee Belcher, Steel Magnolias
I'd say this to: Ha, if you happen to lurk at my blog again, you know you who are. After what you did to me, and how you have left me dumbfounded with all your CRAP...I could have chose the line
"How dare you? Ingrates!" from A Bug's Life, then I realize you're way older than me in years but no necessarily in wisdom as you always claim...so this line fits you more. And may this be your motto every time you celebrate your birthday! Silly!

(3) When I'm good, I'm very, very good, but when I'm bad, I'm better. - Tira, I'm No Angel
I'd say this to: ALL my detractors! LOL

(4) You come to see me? - Bobby Bolivia, Transformer
I'd ask this to: YOU...my Oblivion!

(5) I love you. You... you complete me. - Jerry Maguire
I'd say this to:
Yummy (aka I.T. Guy)


There's still more to Monday Fever...

Manic Monday today is about Using the word can in a post. Anyway you want. Just have FUN with it!



I'm posting the song "CAN we just stop and talk awhile" and this is also my Music Monday!






Here is the lyrics of the song...

Fancy meeting you alone in the crowd
Couldn't help but notice your smile
While everybody else around us is going about
Can we just stop and talk awhile?


I've been often told our world's growing old
And that friends are harder to find
Do tell me more about yourself
We could share a thought or two
Now who would mind?


Maybe then we could go for a ride
Drive down to the countryside
Get away from the gray
And frenzied hurly-burly of the city life


Early yet to say what lies ahead
It's the first day of the rest of our lives
Can we just stop and talk awhile
Get to know each other
Who are we to know?
Love could be waiting at the end
'Round that bend and so
Let's stop and talk awhile


Maybe then we could go for a ride
Drive down to the countryside
Get away from the gray
And frenzied hurly-burly of the city life


Early yet to say what lies ahead
It's the first day of the rest of our lives
Can we just stop and talk awhile
Get to know each other
Who are we to know?


Love could be waiting at the end
'Round that bend and so
Let's stop and talk awhile
Let's stop and talk awhile
Let's stop and talk awhile
Let's stop and talk awhile

My you are a busy girl. Three thematic Mondays in one post.

Unfortunately, too many bosses have Hopper's attitude of "First rule of leadership: everything is your fault."

I chose a Steel Magnolias quote too. However, I hope that your quote, "The older you get, the sillier you get.", is not true for most of us. But I do admit to some silly moments.

swampy said...

Oh my goodness. You make my head spin. I'm off to check out Music and Manic Fundays.

Faye said...

I'm going to have to check out Jerry Mcguire--run upon two killer quotes so far and just started. Ditto other commenters--you're an ambitious Monday blogger!

Jamie said...

Excellent quotes!

I have a couple I love:

"as you wish" from The Princess Bride
Also from the same movie: "My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed My father. Prepare to die".

Also, from Independence Day "All you need is love, John Lennon, smart man, shot in the back very sad" (Judd Hirsch/Julius Levinson)

Hootin' Anni said...

The girl in the youtube video is very pretty. But then again, a lot of Filipino girls are pretty. I know a lot here (in California).
