Flashback Friday!

I have been a bit under the weather the past couple of days. Therefore I've been rather unpleasant to my family. The best way to describe my ire of late is with this 20 second clip from one of my all-time favorite movies:

No, I've not killed anyone, nor do I hate anyone in my family...let me just clear that up. But I have walked around with flames...flames on the side of my face. Pouring from my eyes...steaming out of my ears...flickering through my hair. I've pretty much been a walking zombie of fiery putrescence. Ewww.

It has not been pretty.

In other news, I highly recommend you all watch Clue. Tim Curry's presence alone warrants an hour and a half of your life. It's so campy and classic, and for twenty years I've longed to wear the teal masterpiece Miss Scarlett has been seemingly poured into. I'm thinking my 87th viewing is just what the doctor ordered. Good times, y'all.

Happy weekend...I'll be back to my usual self by Monday. And that may or may not frighten y'all, but I'll take my chances!

*Scargosun, you know how this clip makes me happy. I know you know!

JourneytoFamily said...

Aaaack! That sounds terrible! Get plenty of rest and I hope you get better soon!!! And while you're resting, have yourself a Jason Statham dream. That will surely make you feel better!

jori-o said...

Ya, Clue is pretty freakin' hilarious. Hope you feel better soon!

heathersister said...

I am a little scared now.

CaraBee said...

That is one of my all time faves, too! And that scene is just hilarious. When it came out, my best friend and I would always say those lines. I have it on DVD and watch it whenever I need a pickmeup.

Feel better!

Caroline said...

Madeline Cohn (sp?) is priceless in that scene and Tim Curry is trying hard not to laugh at her when the camera pans to him.

Love, Love, Love Clue. I remember watching it when I was a wee one on a rented VCR from Kroger.

Bekkah said...

Clue is most definitely on my Top 5 list of all-time favorites! I can pretty much quote the ENTIRE movie...it's embarrassing.

Hope the flames subside soon, we all have those moments.

BTW = you wouldn't happen to have a nuclear physicist husband would you???

Heather said...

Michelle might be scared, but I'm not. It takes more than flames to scare me off.

I think a weekend of pumpkin crisp and Rock Band and non-stop laughter is just what you need. Have Scott write you a prescription.

momof3crazykids said...

I love Clue too. I'm gonna have to netflix it. It's been a while. Hope you're feeling better soon.

Tiffany T said...

You better cheer up or I'll have to come at you like a rabid spidermonkey!!!!

HiHoOhio said...

CLUE is the best! Love that movie! Thanks for the memories! Have a great weekend with H & M!!!

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

You and Me and a MOVIE NIGHT baby... I ADORE CLUE!!!!

Another great movie, but hard to get your hands on, is Noises Off - Carol Burnett, Christopher Reeves... it's HYSTERICAL!!!!

Brandy said...

Poor thing. From your description in my comments, I know it's not good. I hope you feel better soon.

Nicole said...

I haven't seen that movie in years! I'm sorry you feel crappy, have a good relaxing weekend and get better!

Jen said...

I remember being so excited when that movie came out. I loved the game and it was neat to see the story come to life. It's been a long time since I've seen it so I may need to netflix it.

Jenny and the Princess Peonies said...

Here's to a better week next week! Just remember.....Twilight is almost here!!

manic mariah said...

yeck, I have a touch of something nasty too. Feel better!

Carrie said...

Oh my gosh! I love that movie and everytime it comes on, my husband just grumbles and sighs because he knows I'm going to watch it come hell or high water!

Madeline Kahn is one of my favorite actresses of all time. I wish she was still around. My favorite performance of hers is in History of the World Part 1! Yes no no no no no no yes, no no no no no no yes...

Carrie said...

p.s. Hope you feel better soon.

Tim Curry. Raawr...

You just made my day. I wish I coudl just pop this movie in my computer and watch it on my other screen. Just too too good! My fave clip is when they all run into each other on the landing.

Live.Love.Eat said...

I'll have to look this movie up after I look up the meaning of putrescence :) Good one Lula!!!! Your wonderful vocab is not lost on me.

I do hope you feel better!!!!!!!! I've been feeling a little blah too but that's only from drinking too many Blueberry Wheat Ales. I deserve it!

ParentingPink said...

And your hubby (and you?) went to UVA too? WAHOOWA. Whatever. LOL

I love Tim Curry too. Corny, but I love him and Carol Burnett in "Annie".

I am so sorry you don't feel good. Hopefully you'll feel better sharing a weekend with friends;)

Heather is bringing a treat for you from me. It is in my oven right now! The whole house smells of cinnamon and apples.

MarciaBrady said...

Sorry to hear you're not feeling well. You'll be feeling better soon though!! Hopefully!

So, have you ever thought about writing a book? Or have you ever? You write so well. It's so descriptive. Maybe you can give me lessons!! haha

Have a GREAT weekend!

"We threatened to kill me in public."

"Why would he want to kill you in public."

"I think she meant, he threatened, in public, to kill her"

Kristina P. said...

I hope you get better soon! And I haven't seen Clue in years!

Eudea-Mamia said...

Oh how I miss Madeline Kahn - true comedic genius that one.

"Do you like Kipling, Miss Scarlet?"
"Sure, I'll eat anything."

Now I'm off to buttle...

Kimberly said...

Awe, I hate to hear that! Feel better soon!

Swirl Girl said...

anything with Madeline Kahn is worth watching again!

I think it was Professor Plum in the library with the rope.

I can't see the video but I'm assuming it's firestarter with Drew Barrymore?

Mama Dawg said...

Not only is this one of yours and my all time favorite movies...wait for it...wait for it...

She's just like her mama. She has excellent taste!

Tiffany said...

Let's have a mystery dinner party and all dress up.

Your house. You pick the date. I'll wear something cleavage friendly.

Kat said...

I can't believe how far behind I am. And just to cheer you up...I almost done with the Hunger Games. And oh, wow...what an amazing book! I just LOVE it.

And I can't believe you are not feeling better yet. What is going on with your tummy?!

shhhh...I have never seen Clue. Egads...I know you are screaming. I'll put it in the queue...

Britt said...

I too have been a human torch.

Luckily my husband and children seem to be fireproof.

Come to think of it, I've also been known to resemble a human fountain, a hot air balloon, a bulb syringe, and cat nip.

And I now realize that that sounds really, very weird if you aren't in my head making the correlation.

Maybe I should go to bed now?

P.S so glad hubs got me internet. I've missed your blog!
