My favorite movie of all time is…Shawshank Redemption.
That is all.
Alter-ego Me: You can’t have a post that’s only two sentences.
Me: What do you mean? Why not?
Alter-ego: Because that would be stupid.
Me: Are you calling me stupid? You’re stupid, Stupid-head.
Alter-ego: Relax. I’m just trying to get you to think outside of the box.
Me: There’s a box?
Alter-ego: (sigh) I’m trying to help you? I think you’ve been spending too much time on Twitter. Your blog post doesn’t have to be less than 140 characters.
Me: Well, I don’t really have much to say about Shawshank Redemption. I loved it. I was surprised at the end. What’s more to say? It wasn’t a comedy?
Alter-ego: Well, how about some other movies?
Me: Like, Dead Poet’s Society?
Me: Well, that one is on this list I have from 1996.
|A list I wrote in my journal in 1996.
Under my blog title it says who I voted for that election year for president.
I strategically covered that up.
But I think I only liked it because it had cute boys in it. Plus it had poetry and crap in it and that made me look smart when I said I liked it. Like when I say I like MacBeth even though I really don’t “like it” like it, but it was the most tolerant of all the classics, so I throw that into conversations every now and then to impress people.
Alter-ego: You do that?
Alter-ego: Ok, moving on. Let’s look at another movie from your list. Quick Change. What is that? I don’t know that.
Me: Flores! Flores para los muertos! Los muertos! Los MUERTOS! That means “flowers for the dead”, because like me, I know you don’t speak Spanish. Quick Change is a 1990 classic film where Bill Murray, Randy Quaid and Geena Davis rob that bank and everything that could go wrong, goes wrong. Hilarious. You’d love it.
Me: It was. It was great.
Alter-ego: Alright, what else?
Me: (huffing and sliding down in chair) Haven’t we hit the word count yet? This is soooooooo boring.
Alter-ego: We’re getting there, just a few more words.
Me: We’re torturing the readers here. You need to work on your interviewing skills by the way; this is the worst interview ever.
Alter-ego: What do you mean? This isn’t an interview. It’s a conversation in Kate’s head. I’m helping you expand on your one sentence and now you’re criticizing me?
Me: Well, you’re not doing a very good job of helping this post. Who invited you to this party, Farty? Ha ha! I kill me.
Alter-ego: You are so juvenile. No wonder nobody retweets your jokes. I bet you those stars you get on your tweets are all pity stars.
Me: Hey. That’s not cool. Don’t mess with my Twitter. I’m working on it. I did some of the research on our Monday post, How To Be Funny: 14 Tips to Writing Funnier.
Alter-ego: All you did was pick out the funny examples. Anyone could do that. I wrote the stinking thing. And people liked it.
Me: They liked my examples. They laughed at my examples. They didn’t laugh at your parts.
Alter-ego: My parts were educational.
Alter-ego: Oh stop it. Anyway, you only brought that post up to get more people to look at it.
Alter-ego: Alright, forget it. I’m done. We got nowhere with talking about movies.
Me: We’re done? Yay! I did try to make a movie for today about gross things in my yard like that mama bird carrying away her baby’s fecal sac in her beak. It was awesome, but you vetoed that idea, remember.
Alter-ego: It was disgusting.
Me: I know. I have issues. But, I think it would have been better than your crappy interview.
Alter-ego: I’m so done. I’m really disappointed in this conversation. I bet, because of you, Kate loses followers over this.
Me: Please. I’m the funny one. It’s because of your crappy interviewing skills, yo!
Alter-ego: Perhaps the other people that linked up there blogs will have something better to say in regards to movies than we did.
Me: Doubt it.
Alter-ego: You are so rude…and arrogant.
Me: I know. I have issues. Flores para los muertos! Los MUERTOS!
Alter-ego: Alright, this concludes our portion of today’s riveting post. Listen. To give this post some kind of redemption, how about you tell us your favorite movie in the comments. Then check out some of the other blogs listed below.
