FI, TGIAF !!

It's still only thursday here, but it's -12 C outside and darn it, I feel like celebrating ! So here's a new term for you: "FI, TGIAF !" (Forget it, Thank God It's Almost ...etc.).
1st sign it's the holiday season:

"Love Actually" is being played over and over on tv and yes, I can't get enough of it. It's like good wine, it only gets better with age:

My new favorite lines from the movie: ( I keep going back and forth here, the movie is just that brilliant )

" Billy Mack: I realized that Christmas is the time to be with the people you love.
Joe: Right.
Billy Mack: And I realized that as dire chance and fateful cockup would have it, here I am, mid 50s, and without knowing it I've gone and spent most of my adult life with a chubby employee. And much as it grieves me to say it, it might be that the people I love is, in fact... you.
[pause]
Joe: Well, this is a surprise.
Billy Mack: Yeah...
Joe: Ten minutes at Elton John's and you're as gay as a maypole. "
[...]

"Colin: American girls would seriously dig me with my cute British accent.
Tony: You don't have a cute British accent
Colin: [excitedly] Yes I do! I'm going to America.
Tony: Colin, you're a lonely, ugly arsehole. You must accept it.
Colin: Never. I am Colin, god of sex. I'm just on the wrong continent, that's all. "

( Smiling with a wide grin ! )

2nd: And as you know, nothing says holiday season like a good old Victoria Secret fashion show, (broadcasted on tuesday here for the 2006 edition). If you are a male with tv and you have a pulse, you probably watched the show ;) but for those who missed it, here it is:
(definitely NSFW and for the J. Timberlake fans out there, You are welcome !)

(via vikthor)
Watching the show resulted in this actual exchange with a friend that shall remain unnamed: (you know who you are :) )
Me: " they say that's a 6 million dollars bra she is wearing.....I am not exactly sure what to make of that information..."
Unnamed: " yep, and the girl is not free either..."
[...]
Me: " Those ladies look like they are from another planet. The phrase "I would not throw her out of my bed" was probably invented for them"
Unnamed: "Well, I certainly wouldn't and I am girl :) "

TGIT everyone ! What's your favorite holiday lines ?

    Absolutely LOVE that movie. Watched it a million times...and these are some lines i love (there are many more)...

    Hugh: "Who do you have to screw round here to get a cup of tea and a biscuit?"

    Hugh: "Do. The SAS are absolutely charming.
    Ruthless, trained killers are just a phone call away."

    Colin Firth: "Oh, God, she's in.
    And now she'll think I'm a total spaz if I don't go in too.
    Fuck - it's cold!"

    This one's funny too -

    "- Harry?
    - Sarah, switch off your phone and tell me exactly how long it is that you've been working here.
    - Two years, seven months,
    three days and, I suppose, what, two hours?
    - And how long have you been in love with Karl, our enigmatic chief designer?
    - Um...Two years, seven months, three days and, I suppose, an hour and 30 minutes.
    -Thought as much.
    - Do you think everybody knows?
    - Yes.
    - Do you think Karl knows?
    - Yes.
    - Oh, that is... that is bad news.
    - I just thought that maybe the time had come to do something about it.
    - Like what?
    - Invite him out for a drink
    then casually mention you'd like to marry him and have lots of sex and babies.
    - You know that?
    - Yes. And so does Karl. Think about it, for all our sakes.
    It's Christmas.
    - Certainly. Excellent. Will do.
    Thanks, boss.
    - Hi, Sarah.
    - Hi, Karl."

    Prof. Snipes is brilliant !
    How about ? : "There was more than 1 lobster present at the birth of Jesus ?
    DOH "

  4. Let's stick on the cheeziest moments(héhéhé), let me introduce you guyz quotes from the Origins :
    Pride & Prejudice:

    Mr. Darcy: I love you. Most ardently. Please do me the honor of accepting my hand.
    Elizabeth Bennet: Sir, I appreciate the struggle you have been through, and I am very sorry to have caused you pain. Believe me, it was unconsciously done.
    Mr. Darcy: Is this your reply?
    Elizabeth Bennet: Yes, sir.
    Mr. Darcy: Are you... are you laughing at me?
    Elizabeth Bennet: No.
    Mr. Darcy: Are you *rejecting* me?
    Elizabeth Bennet: I'm sure that the feelings which, as you've told me have hindered your regard, will help you in overcoming it.
    Mr. Darcy: Might I ask why, with so little endeavor at civility, I am thus repulsed?
    Elizabeth Bennet: And I might as well enquire why, with so evident a design of insulting me, you chose to tell me that you liked me against your better judgment.

    And yess I'm alwaayyyyyyyz crying when I see this part (10 times this year...lol)

  7. err, I hate romantic comedies. And holidays, too, for that matter. Here's my quote:


    "Bah!" said Scrooge, "Humbug!" ... “If I could work my will," said Scrooge indignantly, “every idiot who goes about with ‘Merry Christmas’ on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. He should!”
