Random stuff heard around the house

Archive for March, 2014

Heaven Conversation

We’re watching The Wolf of Wall Street.

Me: What I don’t get is that if you have all of that money the legitimate way, why do you have to do illegal stuff to get more money?

Rich: Probably like drug dealers, greed and more money.

Me: Yeah but why not just be honest? I mean, I work hard to be an honest person – it doesn’t come naturally you know. Remember the girl that forgot to ring up our dog food and you pointed it out to her? I might have paused to consider that – that’s something I have to work at and I do but still….

Rich: And that’s why you’ll never enter the House of Heaven.


Awards Conversation

We’re watching August: Osage County.

Me: So tell me how Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep didn’t win an Oscar for this?

Rich: They cursed too much?

Me: No, but Cate Blanchett – God love her, I adore her but she was in a Woody Allen movie so of course she won. I mean, all you have to do is play a Nazi or be in a Woody Allen movie and you’re a shoe-in.

Rich: What if someone plays a Nazi in a Woody Allen movie?

Me: Then they win all of the awards.


Sleep Conversation

Rich is watching Family Feud and the question was, “Name the longest time you can go without sleep.” The guy answers, “Six hours.”

Rich: Damn, he must be related to you.
