Hi, it's really rum, but since I joined this board and saw some movies with Owen (it is a pity that I don't have more time to look at all his movies) , things which have - at first glance - nothing to do at all with Owen, suddenly in a queerish manner are linked to him by me. ;D
For instance: I listened to the radio and they played ZZ Top/Sharp dressed men. Yiieehaa - of course girls get crazy about an Owen dressed up to the nines, although we all would prefer Owen with no clothes at all ...
Yesterday I pedaled home through heavy rain. I would have won any! wet t-shirt contest by far. There it was: the surfin and swimming Owen in TBB, hehehe. ;D
But I was not the only one getting completely soaked. A handsome guy joined me on my way home. He smiled at me (I hope it was not only because of my wet t-shirt ) and complained about biking through the rain. That was really supporting! Because the car drivers already looked pitiful at us. Ha, and what immediately jumped on my mind? YESSS, the show down of SN when Owen and Jackie storm out of the church after they reassured themselves that they manage the bad guys. And we definitely showed these car driving sissies to get wet with grace and dignity.
So, I am eager to get home and have even more funny associations.
Wish you all a nice weekend. Calliope

Sometimes the "thought frazzles" transform into real life...
Today, my 4 year old daughter was playing with a sound activated toy puppy. She had me watch while she used noises and hand signals like Jackie Chan did with Fido in SN to get the toy to move. I busted out laughing! (It was even funnier when my husband's eyes began to roll. )
OK, this is really silly and stupid, but I did a "Wilson" thing this morning.
I went to Border's Book Store to buy a Dallas newspaper. It's a safe bet that the paper on the top of the pile may have been already handled and may even have sections missing. So, without thinking, I took the third copy down from the top. As I stood in line waiting to pay, I remembered an old article about Luke where either he says or it is said of him that he always selects the third newspaper down from the top of the pile.
Hee hee. I'm Lukified by the Lukester himself. I suppose it's not unusual to subconsciously adopt the habits of those we like and admire.

texas - I do the same thing. I'll grab cartons of milk that are further behind on the shelf, because they're kept colder. I'll take packages of things that are behind others, because they've been handled less often. I take magazines that are behind the first one, because they've been handled less.
Athough, I don't necessarily pick the third down or third back. I guess I'm not Lukified afterall.

My kids hate that I do that! I also, check the sell date on stuff. You'd be amazed how many things I find on the shelves past their dates!
On another note, I was fixing salad for dinner tonight and had a very large English cucumber. My thoughts immediatley went to the crotch threads! I laughed thinking about this thread, as I cut it up. Then I thought, "OUCH!!!".
Well, you have good logical reasons for taking items farther back (temperature control, for example). But I think always taking the third one of something is venturing into the obsessive compulsive zone, rather than conscious decision-making.
If Luke's "third-one-pick" exhibits human foibles, it just makes him more endearing to me than ever.
I just hope for his sake he's not flipping the light switch 5x and counting his every step a la Jack Nicholson in As Good As It Gets... this is excessive and I'd worry about our dear Luke. ;D

I'm the exact same way, Texasgal! I always take the third or forth magazine or newspaper in the stack. If there is just one or two, I might not take it. It there is one and the cover is bent or ripped, I definitely won't take it. Yes, I am weird that way. Must be the Virgo in me. I like things "perfect," although I've learned that life isn't perfect! (Nor am I!) When I was little, I was outside reading "Charlotte's Web" under a tree. One of my friend's brothers came over and grabbed the book and bent the hell out of the cover. I wouldn't finish reading the book because the cover was bent!! Don't worry--I'm not that bad anymore!
Maybe I've said too much! You're all like, "Boy, AAV is a nutcase!!"

I won't buy a newspaper or magazine that is torn or has bent pages either. I feel like I'm not getting my moneys worth. I always check to make sure the coupons are in the Sunday paper. It drives me nuts not to get them! When I'm reading a book from the library, I unfold any bent corner I come upon. Don't even get me started on the stuff spilled on them! We are a nation of sloppy eaters.
