“Listen, strange women, lying in ponds, distributing swords is no basis for a system of government.” – Monty Python and the Holy Grail

“Help!  Help!  I’m being repressed!”

OK, not really.  I’m just watching Monty Python and the Holy Grail.  I had every intention of “writing ahead” tonight (in the blogging sense).  I was going to write up some “REFLECTION” and “ON THE ITINERARY” posts to schedule for the next several days, but, you know what?  I don’t really feel like it.

I’m tired.  I watched a couple episodes of “Rookie Blue” and read a few articles on search engine optimization.  I thought about starting Girls: Season 2, but I decided against it.  It has too much relationship content for my taste tonight; I don’t want to think about the most recent mistake in my love life.

And so I chose to watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail.  I can’t even count how many times I’ve seen this movie, but I’ve never stopped loving it.  I know that not everyone is a fan of British comedy; I won’t hold it against you if you’re not.  We just can’t be friends. 😉  This all-star cast never fails to put a smile on my face.  From African swallows carrying coconuts to weighing women against ducks to Trojan rabbits, this movie is fun for…well not quite the whole family but…for a lot of people.


I think I saw this movie for the first time in my Sophomore year of high school.  I remember my friend A_____ constantly making references to it in our seminar class (study hall at other schools?) while we played chess (he and I always got our homework done during class, so seminar was our “play” time).  I’m so glad he brought the movie to my attention.  After I watched it, he and I would joke about it all the time and people rarely knew to what we were referring.  Imagine that–British comedies aren’t commonly viewed in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Later, I decided that I needed more Monty Python exposure.  I moved on to watching And Now For Something Completely Different, Life Of Brian, and The Meaning of Life.  All are three are worth watching, but The Meaning of Life holds a special place in my heart.

I think I’ve spent enough time with my simplistic drivel for now.  Have a wonderful evening, my lovely followers!
