Blogging, Interrupted

Good morning! Welcome to Tuesday, and to another day of a blog post not turning out quite exactly the way I’d planned here on Words Become Superfluous.

My plan was to take some pictures of the fun things that showed up in my mailbox recently, congratulate myself on taking pictures in Shutterbug Sis’s absence, share the pictures here with you, and then call it a day and return to my couch, victorious, to catch up on episodes of a brand new Favourite Television Show You’ve Never Heard Of * .

But you’ll have to wait until later in the week for the pictures, I’m afraid, because I spent all the time I had set aside for writing today taking an online quiz instead.

I know. I’m sorry. If it makes you feel any better, I ran out of time to watch my new Favourite Show, too. You guys, I haven’t gotten thisΒ flibbertigibbety over online content since the Much Ado About Nothing trailer came out!

So the reason you’re not looking at photos (or hearing the accompanying witty and charming story that goes with them)

E.T the Extra-Terrestrial

Don’t look at me like that, E.T. I’ll show you the pictures soon, I promise!

this morning is because … I can’t possibly be witty and charming while geeking out over a John Williams movie score quiz!

John Williams is my favourite film music composer (yes, of course I have a favourite film music composer! Why, doesn’t everyone?) I’ve been known to hum the theme to Jurassic Park – loudly – in public . I’ve changed out of my pajama pants and gone to the symphony to hear his works played more than once. And I spent way too much time thinking about my answers to this quiz.

Click here to take the quiz and see if you can identify some of John Williams’ scores in Name That Tune style. I’ll be sharing my answers, along with some of my favourite John Williams movie moments, in a special edition of Wordful Wednesday here tomorrow. Have fun!

love amb

* It’s not like I do this on purpose. The shows just find me.

    • Don’t worry, I went into the quiz feeling pretty confident … cocky, even … but It took me a lot longer than I thought it would, too!

  1. lol, can see how that would make time disappear. Yet another area where I know nothing, but this Williams guy has some big credits. Very cool. Looking forward to hearing how you scored. I got Zero, but have seen all the movies. Do I get points for that? πŸ˜‰ What was lots of fun was playing multiple tunes at once as the first one doesn’t shut off it you start another. Talk about a flibbertigibbetty and corybantic experience. Happy Tuesday to you.

    • Of course you get points for that, my friend! Also for the fact that you just used flibbertigibbetty and corybantic together in a single sentence. I am mightily impressed!

      Cracking up at your mention of all the songs playing at the same time, as that happened to me as well. In sync as usual πŸ™‚

    • Hi Becky!! Yes, the Jurassic theme is THE BEST! It makes anything seem epic, even doing laundry.

      Glad I could help spread the joy πŸ™‚

    • Hey, none of this “only” stuff! With only three notes to go on, three isn’t too shabby at all, my friend! Glad you had fun πŸ™‚
