New to Fridays!!

Thought I'd incorporate a standing post on my blog, and why not make it on Fridays! No one really works on Fridays do they? This is a game that my husband and I used to play every Friday. You send out a song lyric for someone to guess. 80s new wave were always my favorites. Because of the internet, everyone is on the honors system. Today I will do some lines from one of my favorite movies. It is on right now, so I've got my laptop and various text books lined up on the couch...yes, I am one of those freaks who works on Fridays. The first one will be easy, just to get you started.


"I understand that you little guys start out with your woobies and you think they're great ... and they are. They are terrific. But pretty soon, a woobie isn't enough. You're out on the street trying to score an electric blanket, or maybe a quilt. And the next thing you know, you're strung out on bedspreads Ken. That's serious."


Post your guess. Feel free to throw back a line or two, in the spirit of Friday. Or, throw back another line if this was too easy for you...that way you won't spoil it for the young folk out there. I'm willing to bet $50 that my sister (born 1979) does not know the movie because she probably hasn't seen it! And no, she is not a communist.


Chris, you are exempt from this first challenge since you know these words (actually the entire movie) by heart. And you wonder why I married him???

I had to look it up. I thought it was supposed to be song lyrics though. I like this game though.

No clue and I am not even smart enough to figure out how to look it up! I will just have to ask you or Matt. This kinda of resembles group text trivia, something my younger generation invented!

Would you like a hint, anonymous?

I have it now and I am not too young, I have seen the movie a million times.

Here is one (movie) for you....

"two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickle, onions, but out buns don't have sesame seed"

"They got the Golden Arches, mine is the Golden Arcs. They got the Big Mac, I got the Big Mick." Now go get your Soul Glow on!

Mr. Mom?

I am not good with movie lines but I can hear his voice saying it. Whoever he was. Michael Keaton? Whatever happened to Michael Keaton?

Gosh I hope this is Mr. Mom or this comment will be inane.
