Quotable Books

Many people quote movies, but do you quote books in normal conversation or in occasional outbursts? Yeah, I do, too.

Here are a few from our household.

"Silencio!" and "Expelliarmus!" from Harry Potter

"Do it for Johnny!" from The Outsiders

Let's sleep in a "real pile." from Where the Wild Things Are (maybe that one is from the movie, can't remember if it's in the book too.)

"You do not like them. So you say. Try them! Try them! And you may." from Green Eggs and Ham

"You've got the cheese touch!" from Diary of a Wimpy Kid

"Wanna see my secret freckle? It's got a hair in it!" Diary of a Wimpy Kid (okay, that is inspired by the movie, too)
"Who Pooped in the Park?" from Who Pooped in the Park? - a book about scat in various national parks!

Various Shel Silverstein poems like "Chester," "Two Tutors" and "Boa Constrictor." Yeah, I just say them occasionally out loud to the kids. They are funny! I've memorized so many Silverstein poems since my childhood.


Speaking of Johnny, did anyone catch Ralph Macchio on Dancing with the Stars? I don't watch it, but I had to google him on Youtube to see how he did! Dance on, Dance off!

Is anyone else having trouble cutting and pasting into blogger or adding pictures? Every time I try to add a picture or video, it closes! Arrgh! It's so frustrating that I'm not blogging as much (that and I'm busy!!!). Have a great rest of your week, friends!
