"What's that Fezzik? Liralen's trapped in a well? Quick, take her this knitting and some tea and Bugles, and let her know we'll be along to rescue her after giving her some time to enjoy the peace and quiet! Good boy!"

I don't think it would work out well to give Fezzik an ice cream sandwich to take. I think its odds of arriving intact might be very small.
Oyster, happy to be alone and always making something out of being irritated all the time.

That is immensely cool! :D
Egads I had ACL replacement surgery back in '98. I hope to hell never to need any type of joint surgery again. That was wicked painful and I am such a wimp.

I adore the Princess Bride, hence the name of my journal. *laughs* I've seen it so often I can say nearly everyone's dialog before they do. I think Princess Bride has more quotable great lines than any other movie I've seen.

Though I'm actually better at it with the original Star Wars trilogy. XD
Yeah... that's about when I had my ACL... uhm... reconstructed? What amused me was that while I still was on the surgery drugs they had me in physical therapy and my husband had to count all the reps because I couldn't remember the numbers long enough. *laughs*

YAY! Princess Bride!!

Oooo... I can quote the original Star Wars trilogy, too. *laughs* I hadn't even thought of that!!
