Yesterday I was driving into the office and had this great idea for a movie quote. I thought that it would be strong enough even as a standalone post, if necessary. I remembered thinking that it might be difficult to find a screen-shot online of the character's lines, since he was secondary to the movie, and had a common name; common names being very difficult to search for online. I also thought that instead of just his monologue, I could follow up with several of his other comments that follows another character's lines, but thinking that I could run them together not requiring the other lines at all - it was that good and would seem to provide a seamless transition. Then, at the corner of St. Charles Rock Road & Woodson, I wondered if it would seem too much like one of swashbuckler332's "Movie Moments" and thought back to the last time I've done a frame and a quote. It was this post, about Sarris from Galaxy Quest extolling the responsibilities of being a commander. I tried to remember the quote word for word. I usually use my cell phone to text myself an email to remind me of these things, as sometimes I forget. Sure enough, late yesterday, I remembered all of the details I'm sharing with you now, but couldn't remember the movie. I was very frustrated yesterday trying to come up with this. Fast forward to this morning. I put in the same CD in the car, and took the same route as I had yesterday, hoping to jog my memory. It didn't work. I arrived at work frustrated, and it only just dawned on me, the entire thing was probably a dream. There is no perfect quote, no perfect movie, no great supporting actor with a common name which would make it difficult to search online for. Nothing. None of it is real, and that's scary.



Do you think I'm a fool? That the Commander does not know every
bolt, every weld of his ship?

Even a fool when he holdeth his peace is counted wise and he that shutteth his lips eteemed a man of understanding.

How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

Reality is a tricky thing to master. Dreams are much easier than reality for such.

Agreed, but chaos is the only outcome of getting the two confused.
