“We are men of action. Lies do not become us.”

The Movie: The Princess Bride, 1987 (William Goldman, screenwriter, from his novel; Rob Reiner, dir.)
Who says it: Cary Elwes as Westley, aka The Man in Black and The Dread Pirate Roberts
The context: Count Rugen (Christopher Guest), Prince Humperdinck’s henchman, has just told Westley that they must return him to his ship.
How to use it: To parry soft talk.

Today's will be a short posting, because I need to get some work done before crawling back to bed with a box of tissues and a bottle of cough syrup. Ack.

This morning's Kennebec Journal reports the return of robins, phoebes and ospreys to central Maine. See, the L.A. Times reports on celebrities; the KJ reports on birds. One more reason to be glad I moved.
