*Exhaustion, Plus a New Game

I don't mind the sick part so much as the tired part. I can go about my day while coughing up phlegm...but I can't go about my day while doing a spot-on impression of a narcoleptic.

Been watching television. Which I generally hate. I have a handful of shows I'll deign to watch, and if none of those are on, I'll watch movies.

I have rekindled my love affair with Alan Rickman. I want to have his babies. I'll even conceive the old-fashioned way despite the fact he's old enough to be my dad's older brother. It's the voice. That British sort of drawl of his, rawr.

So. Since Pete is kind enough to enjoy doing Lyrical Pursuit, and since I need something to blog about but have illness-fueled ADD that precludes me from writing anything shall guess movie quotes this week. I'll give you a hint: the actor is always going to be Alan Rickman. You must guess the character and movie.

We'll start with one I have actually been known to yell at people. Complete with bad English accent. Without further ado...

"Because it's dull, you twit; it'll hurt more!"

Five possible points for the correct answer. One point for the movie title, one point for the character name, and another point for explaining the context. Additional "style" points will be awarded in a completely subjective manner for things like making me laugh, showing due appreciation for the genius that is Alan Rickman, and the use of Alan Rickman trivia.

Maybe there'll be a prize for the week.

You're hot for Snape? Jen, what meds are you on? Seriously. Hillarious, sure. Brilliant, yeah. Capable of unloading litterally buckets of alternating vitriol and smarm, most assuredly.

Hmmm....I'm getting a little hot for him too now.

I can hear him saying that, complete with irritation and exasperated undertones. Especially "twit". He has the best twit in the industry. I just can't place the scene.

I'm going to go with Dogma since I can see that line fitting in well and that's one of my favorite Rickman movies of all time.

Dammit Steve! I knew that one too. It's when he's telling one of his henchman that he's going to cut out Robin Hood's heart. Alas.

As an aside, Alan Rickman is to hotness what Madonna is to hotness. It's all just a bag of skin and bones at this point, isn't it?

"...cut out Robin Hood's heart..." with a spoon. Just wanted to add that for context.

Anyone see the Men in Tights spoof of this film? Favorite scene:

When Robin Hood's blind servant guy is sitting watch at the gates of the Merry Men's abode.
Robin: Um, what are you doing?
Blind Servant Guy: Ah. I'm guessing? I guess there's no one coming?
