Quittin' Time?

A dear friend asked me this afternoon if I'd given up on blogging.

Her question reminded me of this clip from a famous movie. Ten points to anyone who can correctly identify the film and the character.

Oh, and about her impertinent question?

No. I plan to post at least once a week. But I'm just not ready to commit to a specific day, because I am unreliable spontaneous and flaky free spirited.

I would give the answer....but frankly me dead, I don't give a damn.

Heh heh.

Good one. Keep postin'.

Rome wasn't created in a day and great blog posts are worth waiting for.

Best to post when the mood strikes and not to feel pressured to do so. We can wait!

kyooty said...

I'll be waiting, no speakers though can't guess

Okay. It HAD been five weeks since your trademark snark (or should I say wit and wisdom) had graced the blog world. Just sayin'.

Gone With The Wind, of course.
I can't remember the foreman's name, though. ("I says when it's quittin' time.")

Hey, I'm unreliable and flaky too. I mean spontaneous and free spirited.

Guess that's why we're such good friends :D

Frankly, I prefer more time between posts because I am a slacker reader...

Lemmy - thank you for your support. And your oblique reply earns you ten points plus a bonus 3. Mwah!

phd in yogurtry - a very diplomatic answer, indeed! Your membership assures I will fulfill my club duties.

Kathy - I'm getting in the mood more and more....your patience is appreciated.

kyooty -
here'shere's a link to the quote source.

Bee - I really tried to get an audio clip of the whole quote, which is a classic. No dice. Your ten points are duly awarded, with a bonus 2 for inspiring the post, less one for calling my brilliance "snark." Honestly, there is no pleasing some people. And it was Big Sam (played by Emmett Brown, who died in his fifties after a career in such gems as White Witch Doctor, The Mask of Fu Manchu, and I Am A Fugitive From A Chain Gang.

Stephanie - indeed, we are soul mates. But if you think "Frankly" is enough to get you the ten points, that's a little too oblique. Sorry! :-)

Oh, dear. I meant Everett Brown.

Five points to anyone who identifies Emmett Brown and why he is an appropriate subject for my blog, given its title.
