“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!
