Non-Running Post and What Hurts Today

This is going to be an off-topic blog post.

Why? Well...I just have no running wisdom to impart on you this morning.

That's right: no advice to make you a slower, more awkward runner like me! I hope you understand.

This is straight from the Facebook juggernaut...my friend RK tagged me in a note, challenging me and others to play a game of "Guess the Movie" based on character quotes.

Not wanting to upset the Facebook Application Gods, I played along and then made my own list of quotes from my favorite movies.

My friends (all popculturephiles) easily guessed 10 out of the 15.

Here are the ones they didn't get, Blogger Friends:

1) Budd: "That woman deserves her revenge and we deserve to die."

2) Natalie: "What is the last thing you remember?"
Leonard: "My wife.."
Natalie: "That's sweet."
Leonard: "Dying."

3) Duncan: "There is a war on. How is it that you are headed west?"
Hawkeye: "Well, we kinda face to the north and real sudden-like turn left."

4) Truvy: "In a good shoe, I wear a size six, but a seven feels so good, I buy a size eight."

5) Sands: "Okay, Okay. I'm going to freak right out."

Give it a guess! I even gave you the character name! This should be easy...right?

Eh...My taste is movies is a little immature obscure.

What Hurts Today:

My hamstring all the way down my calf to the bottom of my foot hurts today. It feels like I'm being shocked by an electric eel every couple seconds. Hooray!


  1. I am so sorry you hurt!!

    The quotes look fun, but I can't guess them either!

  2. I am a movie maniac but I have no idea where those quotes come from...lol...please post the answers later!

  3. #4: Steel Magnolias, only the best movie of all time! "I would rather have thirty minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special. "

  4. I will be sure to post the answers later!

    d.a.r-- Atta' girl! That movie has so many great quotes...Dolly Parton is my hero (sort of)!

  5. I'm so ignorant. I can't guess any of them!
    ack, I hope your hamstrings get better. once my upper glutes hurt for 3 months after I overdid running. I could barely walk! but that won't happen to you, of course.

  6. 1. Kill Bill
    2. Memento
    3. The Last of the Mohicans
    4. Steel Magnolias
    5. Once Upon a Time in Mexico

  7. Virtual Runner, you KILLED it!
