Sorry everyone! I meant to do this on Sunday, but I had to work, and when I got home, I kind of forgot. I was busy finishing the laundry and cleanup after the camping trip, (which was great and relaxing, by the way). So yesterday, Cam and I decided we needed to do some canning. We had 60 lbs of tomatoes from our garden! Yes, 60! I weighed them on our bathroom scale. Plus a bunch more cucumbers and hot peppers that needed to be dealt with right away. So, we did a batch of mom's tomato soup, a bunch of salsa and more pickles. My first batch of pickles turned out so good, we decided to do more. I was going to do the SWS post when we were finished canning. So Cam and I got the tomato soup and salsa done, and started on the pickles. Cam had to go to bed around 8pm, so he could leave for St. George at 3:30am, so I was going to finish up the pickles.
Anyway, this is funny. At 11pm last night I was just finishing up the pickles, I had a load of laundry to fold, then I was going to do the SWS post and go to bed. I had all the lids on the pickles, all I needed to do was shake them up a little and put them on the kitchen table. So I get to the very last jar, I shook it and cucumbers and pickle juice, etc went everywhere! I had put the lid on the jar, but not the screw ring thing! I guess I was so tired, I didn't notice. And when I say it went everywhere, I mean everywhere! All over the island, the fridge, the wall and, the load of freshly dried laundry was sitting in a basket by the couch in the living room and it even went through the opening to the kitchen into the laundry basket! This was a quart size jar, and we decided to do pickle chips this time, so there was a lot in that jar. I stood there and couldn't believe what happened. I looked around and all I could see were slices of cucumbers, garlic cloves, red pepper flakes, little flakes of dill and pools of vinegar and water. It took me about half an hour to clean up, I had to put the clothes back in the washer, and needless to say, when it was all over, doing the SWS post was the last thing on my mind.
Okay, on to the post. Hamlet! Probably my very favorite Shakespeare play, and a couple of movies have been done too. I picked a picture of Hamlet finding York's skull, because that is one of my favorite scenes. Alas, poor York! I really don't like the movies that much, but I figure most everyone has either seen the play or one of the movies, or so I thought. Dan is the only one who got it Wright! At first he thought it was LA Story, then he guessed Hamlet after the other quotes were posted. Haley guessed A Midsummer's Night Dream, then changed her guess to Romeo and Juliet and Matt guessed Dead Poet's Society. Emily sent me an official non-guess, which I thought was funny. So, way to go Dan! Get ready for some Dan jams this week!
Here is this week's movie quote:
You're a disgrace to depression.
