“Some people are cut out for champagne and caviar. I’m more the beer and pretzel type.” Lucille Ball as Lucy Ricardo in I Love Lucy
“As the Ferengi say: a good lie is easier to believe than the truth.” Kate Mulgrew as Captain Kathryn Janeway in Star Trek: Voyager
With all due respect, Major, you’re beginning to sound like a Romulan…there is no piece of technology in existence they don’t claim they invented before everyone else. Colm Meaney as Chief O’Brien on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
This was basically the status of our home this week, as everybody tried to take over the jobs I’m pretty sure that they hadn’t really even noticed that I usually do. Fortunately, I’m getting a little better at moving around every day, so they won’t have to pick up all the slack for me too much longer!
“It took 15,000 men to take my place!” Mary Wickes as Emma Allen in White Christmas
This broken ankle is quite an adventure. Obviously, the ankle hurts. But I was not anticipating all the other aches that would come along with it. My hands (not to mention my armpits!) hurt from using the crutches. My right leg is sore from being the only weight-bearing leg I have at the moment. My tailbone is sore, from doing nothing but sitting around all day. Even my hip and my abs hurt! I seriously had no idea how painful a broken ankle would be…for the whole body. Frankly, this quote from Apollo 13 pretty much sums up how I feel about myself right now!
“Let’s look at this thing from a… um, from a standpoint of status. What do we got on the spacecraft that’s good?” Ed Harris as Gene Kranz in Apollo 13
More broken ankle humor, this time from Fuller House:
I actually got knocked down, and I can’t get up again, so wrong song. Jodie Sweetin as Stephanie Tanner on Fuller House
This is me, sitting around with a broken ankle…just waiting for my head to implode!
“You’re a problem solver. You’re one of these people who will pick up a rope that’s gotten all tangled up and spend an entire day untangling it because it’s a challenge, because it defies your sense of order in the universe and because you can. Sometimes I try to picture you sitting on a beach with absolutely nothing to do…And the picture always ends with your head imploding.” Mira Furlan as Delenn in Babylon 5
“Like most time paradoxes, it’s implausible, but not necessarily illogical.” Tim Russ as Lieutenant Tuvok in Star Trek: Voyager
“Look around. Look at what we have. Beauty is everywhere—you only have to look to see it.” Bob Ross
“I remember when my Dad told me as a kid, ‘If you want to catch a rabbit, stand behind a tree and make a noise like a carrot. Then when the rabbit comes by you grab him.’ Works pretty good until you try to figure out what kind of noise a carrot makes…” Bob Ross
