I Know What You Did Last Night. You Disgusting Creature.

24 Jul
My name is Forrest. Forrest Gump.

Can a movie be better than the book it was based on?

Forrest Gump.

I rest my case.

And that’s all I have to say about that.

Is it possible to know someone too well?

If you know that someone picks their nose, doesn’t wash for days, has a bottom so active British Gas uses it for the smell they put in to let you know it’s a dangerous substance you’re using to cook your beefburgers, and you’re not married to them, then, yes.

When is it acceptable to kill things?

When it’s crawling up your arm and has more than two legs.

        And you must watch FG! It’s in my top ten films of all time. He’s a more sympathetic character in the film, and quite a bit in the book doesn’t appear, but it’s a cracking film.

    And Lord of the rings. The descriptive parts were far too long for me in the book.

    Thank GOD about that third one. I lost six of my legs in an “arm crawling” attempt. Which goes to prove that God can make something good out everything

    I hope you’re just making up the person in the second one.

    Although if you don’t count someone else washing them, then it sounds like any one of my kids at the age of about three.

      I was, but I bet someone out there knows them.

      Your poor, much-maligned children. They should start a support group with mine 🙂

    I’ve never read Forrest Gump and now I guess I won’t need to.

      Well, I never want to be the person who puts someone off at least trying a book (apart from ‘Madame Bovary’, of course). I quite enjoyed it; I just thought the film was way better. 🙂

    I agree with you about Forrest Gump — wonderful film. The gassy bottom — hmm, I live with one of those, but in his defence he’s very neat and clean! Great post!
