I Heard a Scuttle. You Know, A Scuttle

I had lunch with some people today at an Indian restaurant in Sorrento Valley area. It was a gathering of said-company that we all worked for a few years ago. I was very very reluctant to go on this lunch date not because I didn't like the company but rather that it was Indian food. I have tried Indian food several times in the past and no love each time. But I'm happy to say that I was really enjoying my Indian lunch buffet and had even a thought of maybe taking the Mister to try (this was a breakthrough moment for me). That is, until we looked up and saw this gigantic bug scuttling across the drapery rod. Someone thought it was a beetle. But whatever it was, it was gigantic. I kid you not. As Sebastian Haff (aka the real Elvis in hiding) would say, "Man, you are one big, bitch cockroach."

So for the rest of lunch, while we were sitting there, catching up on each others' lives, making small talk, my mind couldn't help repeating some of Sebastian's one (or two) liners, "You got a bug problem. They were big, the size of my fist, the size of a peanut butter banana sandwich." Oh well. Easy come, easy go. Sorry if I ruined any appetites out there. What can I say except, thank you. Thank you very much.

LOL! It's Bubba Ho-tep....The King vs The King of the Dead!

"President Kennedy was a white man.
"They dyed me this color! That's how clever they are."

"Don't make me use my stuff on ya, baby! "

The Missus didn't have a clue as to what this movie was about. Nor Army of Darkness......some things get lost in the translation.

Hey Kirk! LOL! We love Bubba Ho-tep and Army of Darkness. I chuckle just thinking about them. That line about JKF is one of my favorites. But there are so many good ones. There are a lot of cliches and slang in both movies so I can see translation might be a problem.

We like Bruce Campbell a lot. Have you seen the show Burn Notice? Bruce Campbell is a regular. Not a bad show either.

I think I'm going to whip out the dvd and watch it this weekend, heehee.
