And then there was a winner

(That's right I'm posting this at 12:52 am. Also known as what the bleep are you still doing up? time.)

So I seem to either totally stump y'all with my quotes or pick one that everybody knows. Go figure.

Jenn from And then there were four
was up bright and early Friday morning and won Say WHAT? before the rest of you even remembered it was game day. I'm glad I just host the game and don't play it because I'd never guess in time to win.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off” must have struck a chord out there because normally when someone wins first thing like Jenn did I may get one or two comments like, “I had no idea anyway.” or “It sounded kinda familiar.” This time as you can see I had a whopping 11 comments to the tune of “I knew this one!” and “Great choice!”

It's funny because I did really like this movie and I admit it's a classic, but honestly it's not one of my favorites. It was lacking in the romance department for me. Where was the love triangle Hughes? And I'm guessing that unlike most of you, I did not particularly like Ferris. I liked Cameron. Which is probably why I didn't like Ferris. Because he was kind of an ass to Cameron. I know, I know, you'll say “He brought him out of his shell.” or “He helped him to have fun.” But I think he was using him and didn't really care too much about the consequences Cameron would be facing. Perhaps I'm being overly defensive. Did I mention my husband kind of reminds me of Alan Ruck. I'm surprised he never came up as one of his celebrity matches.

My other favorites where Charlie Sheen and Jennifer Grey. Loved her triple kick to principal Rooney's face. Charlie looked all strung out and sexy. (Why did I find that look attractive? How did I not end up with someone like that?)

Anyway, it was good fun. It still is. I still get a kick out of the movie and also still dig the soundtrack... Oh Yeah... Chick. Chicka, Chicka!

I can totally see how you would like Cameron. I love the part when he calls principal Rooney pretending to be Sloane Peterson's dad.

Now I hope it will be on tv soon!

HA! I could have written this post. Except I didn't marry a Cameron look alike, and I don't run an 80's movie quote contest on my blog! I loved it when Grey's character clenches her fist and you can hear her tendons pop. Yeah, sound effect I know... but GREAT! Plus I love the instumental version of the Smith's "Please, Please, Please" while at the art museum.
amen and amen.
