Christmas Vacation! A movie, that for some reason, I hadn't seen until Cam's mom gave it to me a few years ago when she noticed I didn't own any Christmas movies except Elf. I don't know how or why I had missed this one. I guess I'm really not into a lot of Christmas movies. For example, I've never seen It's a Wonderful Life either. Please don't jump down my throat for that, just let it be.
And no, I didn't forget, I've just been uber busy. And as Dan guessed when he emailed me a week ago, a little burned out on Sunday's With Sue. I really haven't been on the computer much at all in the last couple of weeks. I signed up for a bunch of overtime the week between Christmas and New Years, so the thought of coming home and looking at a computer was out of the question. And, as most of you know by now, Dave moved in with me and Cam on New Years Day! It is very nice having him here. It's been pretty busy around here since Dave got here. I've been working a lot and we've been busy trying to get the house situated so Dave has his own space and feels comfortable. I think we are getting there. Now I just need to take down all the Christmas stuff so I can have my living room back. I have today off, so I finally have some time to do some much needed things around the house and do the SWS post.
Anyway, enough about me! As I mentioned above, I have gotten a little burned out doing Sunday's With Sue. I've been doing it for over a year, and it's kind of lost it's fun on me. But, don't worry, I've been thinking about it, and I think I came up with a fun way we can keep it going. I've gotten Em's and Dan's approval, and I think the rest of you will like the new way. Here is what I propose:
The current week's winner, which in this case is Em of course, will post the next movie quote. Then the winner of that one, will do the next one, and so on. That way someone like Emily can't dominate the winnings and I can play along too. I think this is a nice way of giving everyone a fair shot, and it will probably bring up movies that I would never think of. We could even expand the game more so if someone would like to do a trivia question instead of a quote they can. What do you guys think? I like the idea, and Em and Dan like it, so I'm taking charge and saying this is how we are going to do it moving forward.
I use google images for the movie pictures. Just go to google, click on images, and type in the movie title. It's as easy as that. And here is the link I use for the quotes. http://moviequotes.com Just click on "quote bank" and it brings up a box with the letters of the alphabet and you click on the first letter of the movie's title. Sometimes when the movie starts with "The" it is under "T", but sometimes it's under the first letter of the next word. Christmas Vacation was actually under "N" for National Lampoon's, so you sometimes have to figure out how they have the movie titled. But, I have found this site to be the one with the most movies listed. IMDB also has quotes, and I've used it a couple of times, so does Wikipedia.
I think we should name it something new too. I think it would be silly to keep calling it Sunday's With Sue. Anyone have ideas for a new name? It could be the Wright Movie Game, or the Wright's Super Happy Fun Movie Game, or whatever. If you think of a name, put it in the comments and we will all discuss.
As I said Em was first to guess Christmas Vacation. When I went into my email folder where I file all the SWS guesses, the emails in there were from the last SWS. Oops! I guess I really wasn't into it! I do know that Em guessed first and I remember B and Dan guessed. If anyone else did, sorry I forgot.
So Em, take the reigns!
