q u o t e s o f t h e d a y
A Photon checks into a hotel and the bellhop asks him if he has
any luggage. The Photon replies, “No, I’m traveling light.”
A weasel walks into a bar. The bartender says, “Wow, I’ve never
served a weasel before. What can I get you?”
“Pop,” goes the weasel.
Remember; Any time you have a 50-50 chance of getting something
right, there’s a 90 per cent probability you’ll get it wrong
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
A businessman had a tiring day on the road. He checked into a hotel and, because
he was concerned that the dining room might close soon, left his luggage
at the front desk and went immediately to eat.
After a leisurely dinner, he reclaimed his luggage and realized that he had forgotten
his room number. He went back to the desk and told the clerk on duty, “My name is
Henry Davis, can you please tell me what room I am in?”
“Certainly,” said the clerk. “You’re in the lobby.” 😳😳
Monday’s’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
The declaration of “I am your number one fan. There is nothing to worry about. You are going to be just fine.”
Kathy Bates delivered those lines perfectly as Annie Wilkes. She was “the biggest fan” of author Paul Sheldon (played by James Caan) but her intentions were more self-centered than just nurturing him back to health. Indeed he should have been worried as “Annie” was determined to influence his writing – in a most bizarre way. The film “Misery” was based on a novel by Stephen King of the same name. King has said it was among his favorite film adaptations. No wonder! It was the first film – and, for many years – the only film based on a Stephen King novel to win an Academy Award; Kathy Bates won the Best Actress Award for her portrayal of scary nurse, Annie Wilkes. The film’s collective talent did not stop with King and Bates, it was directed by Rob Reiner, William Goldman did the screenwriting and it also featured James Caan, Lauren Bacall, Richard Farnsworth, Graham Jarvis and Frances Sternhagen. Movie fun fact: À la Alfred Hitchcock, Rob Reiner did a cameo appearance in his film. Reiner is the helicopter pilot seen with the Police Chief as they search for the missing Paul Sheldon (James Caan’s character); it is a quick shot of Reiner.
