This is Matt and I on his birthday. It took a few shots to get this pic, but I think that it turned out well. Posted by Picasa

Very nice pic....of "Matt and me!" Engrishu!!

Becky said...

I don't know what language you are speaking, but my version is right and you aren't even in that pic!

Sigma said...

Hate to say it, but I agree with Justin. It's Matt and Me. You don't say, "This is a picture of I..." Or are we operating on Becky's Blog Rules?

Becky said...

You are correct. It should be Matt and I because we are the object of the sentence, not the subject. Had we been the subject, it would have been correct. For instance, "Matt and I took this pic on his Birthday." But, it was not so. I concede, but with a better argument than the two of you because you didn't know why it wasn't right, you only knew that it didn't sound right.

See, you shouldn't talk back to the blog creator because then you get deleted... yeah.

Sigma said...

Well. I was trying to be as nice as possible, but apparantly it was construed as "talking back". However, the real point is taken and understood...

Justin said...

I hate to say it, but "Matt and [Becky]" is an OBJECT in the sentence since you said "This is" before it. "This" is the subject. BUUUUUUUUUUUURRN!!

Yeah, go on, delete this. Doesn't change the fact that I'm right.

Justin said...

And I knew exactly why it wasn't right, don't go toting your degree all over like you know stuff!

Justin said...

Like look at this post:
"You are correct. It should be Matt and I because we are the object of the sentence, not the subject. Had we been the subject, it would have been correct. For instance, "Matt and I took this pic on his Birthday." But, it was not so. I concede, but with a better argument than the two of you because you didn't know why it wasn't right, you only knew that it didn't sound right."

You say "Matt and I" is right because you're the object, but then you say if you'd been the subject, then "Matt and I" would be right....is anyone else totally confused by this?

And while I'm at it, I freaking hate Lindsay Lohan!! And Denise Richards!! BLLALALARALGGAARLALRARGGG!!!!

Justin said...

.....just posting again. Maybe I'm OCD today.....

Justin said...

....does anyone know if it's going to snow this weekend?

Justin said...

I sure hope not. My car needs new tires or I'll slide all over the place.

Justin said...

I mean it's not like I'll be like a puppy on linoleum or anything, but going around corners does get a little tricky.

Justin said...

And I won't even talk about going up or down hills! Why can't I live in Nebraska or somewhere flat?

Justin said...

I guess the most simple solution would be to buy new tires.

Justin said...

But then I gotta, you know, take it to the garage...wait...I mean who has time to do that?

Justin said...

Has anyone seen the Prestige? I thought it was pretty tight, though the ending left me angry sort of. I still think it was the best movie I've seen in a long time though.

Justin said...

David Bowie's in it, I mean come on! David Bowie!! He's the coolest!!

Justin said...

Anyone who doesn't like David Bowie is a communist!

Justin said...

Not that big a fan of Christian Bale in this one though. I mean his character. Not a fan. Hugh Jackman's character I relate to more.

Justin said...

Yeah, the Prestige is pretty much Batman vs. Wolverine. Who wins? Well my friends, you'll have to go watch it.

Justin said...

Oh yeah, and Scarlet Johanssen is in it too. Does anyone like her? I'm kind of neutral. I loved her in some movies, but sometimes she just doesn't really leave that much of an impression.

Justin said...

It sure was a better movie than "Pirates of the Caribbean II." Actually, I'm not really sure about that, I just know that the Ninja didn't like that movie. I never actually saw it.

Justin said...

Ok, here's something to think about: If every actor kept every character they've ever played, and it was real, like they accumulated the powers of every character they ever play, who would win?

Justin said...

Let's take a look here, shall we? You've got Ian McKellen who is both a leader in the French Republic after the Scarlet Pimpernel, one of the most powerful mutants ever with the ability to manipulate magnetic fields, and a super-powerful white wizard. Oh yeah, and a rich brilliant scholar dude in Da Vinci Code. So, he's got wealth, political power, magnetism, and magic. Definitely a boss fight.

Justin said...

Then you have Hugh Jackman. He's also a mutant with adamantium skeleton and claws, and some dude from the past named Leopold, and a guy who kills Dracula and stuff, and a magician. Anything I'm leaving out? Anyway, Hugh Jackman also has a strong build.

Justin said...

Christian Bale...well, he's Bruce Wayne so he buys tons of nice toys...he's also a Grammaton Cleric with mad Gun-Katas fighting skills...and he's a newspaper boy who wants to live in Santa Fe. Oh yeah, also a magician. Not as strong for our buddy Christian Bale there, but he could probably hold his own for a while.

Justin said...

Patrick Stewart. He's the most powerful telepath in the world, and captain of a huge starship. If he had the ship I think he could win, except maybe Ian McKellen would crunch the ship up since it's made of metal.

Justin said...

Halle Berry....well....she's an annoying cat lady....and the most annoying mutant in the x-men. Despite any semblance of power she has, she's going to be the first to be killed.

Justin said...

Robin Williams. Well, he's a confused alien (nanoo nanoo), Peter Pan as a grown up, a cross-dressing house sitter, and President Elect of the United States. Sure to make you laugh, but he'd be easily killed.

Justin said...

Alec Baldwin....not even going to touch it since he always plays the creepiest characters on SNL, such as Canteen Boy's Scoutmaster. Gross. But funny still.

Justin said...

Sarah Michelle Gellar...well, she's a Slayer, and sometimes she's a skank. Oh, and horror movies, so I guess she's a scared Slayer Skank. The alliteration in her title alone ought to carry some clout in the battlefield!

Justin said...

Alan Tudyk. Well, he's the best pilot in the 'verse, an angry medieval guy, a femmy guy in rehab, and also a super-powerful robot! (Didn't know this? He's the voice of Sonny in "I, Robot.") I think he stands a good chance! Plus, he has DINOSAUR TOYS!!!

Justin said...

Will Smith...well, he's a funny black kid in Bel Air, he's a funny black dude who fights aliens in July, he's a funny black dude who wears a suit and fights other more cartoony aliens, and he's a funny black dude who fights robots.

I think we'll keep him in there so now he can be a funny black dude who fights Ian McKellen.

Justin said...

Ray Park...(had to put him in here because he's a fighting guy) He's been a toad-like mutant, a sith lord, and half the mortal kombat characters. Even though he never has any meaningful lines and almost never appears without makeup, he could probably kick some trash.

Justin said...

Well, this puts us up to 37 comments. Think they'll get deleted? Probably. But if they don't, everyone should post up who would win in this Celebrity-Role Showdown!!

Sigma said...

You're lucky you haven't been deleted yet Justin. I said pretty much the EXACT same thing you did on post #3 about knowing the rules and got cited for "talking back!"

Becky said...

Justin is correct. I wrote the same thing twice. My bad. Gold star for Justin.

*correction:
It should be Matt and *me because we are the object of the sentence, not the subject.

Oh, and Justin is a freak for having too much time to delay doing his homework.

Sarah said...

I'm gonna have to agree with Bec, Justin is a freak...but I think I get some freak too for actually reading all his nonsense. Ian Mclellan, though gay, would destroy, hands down. No one else has a chance, and I think we should stage this battle royal just so Halle(?) Berry can die...I hate her...more than I hate Lindsay Lohan. (GASP!) I know. I think we are bypassing a very powerful person in this thing though. Yes, that's right, you guessed it, Jim Henderson. With all of his puppet making powers comined he could dark crystal labrynth you into another dimension sucka! This was not at all prompted by my dream I had last night about the dark crystal...

Sarah said...

Correction...Jim Hensen, my mistake.

Justin said...

Yes, Jim Henson would be a formidable foe, with his armies of talking frogs, kung-fu female pigs, myriad goblin warriors, giant walking rock-calling furballs, that little chompy dog from the Dark Crystal as well as huge beetles....he's definitely the head of a huge army. But who will he side with, I wonder? Will he take his place at Ian McKellen's side and rule the galaxy in terror of his muppet might? Or would he lend his legions of muppets to the forces of good and fight against the tyrannous Magneto-Gandalf? Or maybe he'd just kill Halle Berry for us and then retire. I'm sure he'd get some kind of Nobel Prize for that.

Sigma said...

Actually, the prize is called the "God-Save-the-Queen" award. ;)

Justin said...

Once again, the joke has gone right over my very tall head and crashed into Sean Bradley, who until his recent joke-related death was holding up a mass of clouds that was consistently over Cher, who is currently burning alive from the sudden exposure to sunlight. Incidentally, she was near Michael Jackson at the time, and the heat from her combustion caused his hair to ignite, which frightened the other person at his table, Macauly Caulkin, who then began running around with his hands on his cheeks screaming until he tripped over a passed out Norm MacDonald, who awoke with a start and yelled at the fleeing ex-child-star. Of course, this yelled remark was delievered with Norm's trademark stoned-out-of-his mind static grin and mischievously monotone voice, which infuriated Lewis Black to the point of stabbing Jon Stewart in the throat with a dinner fork. Gouts of blood sprayed from his neck, staining the off-white cashmere sweater being worn by Drew Barrymore, who then turned furiously to Jason Alexander (the guy who played George Costanza on Seinfeld), who had given her the sweater as a second-hand gift. Drew moved to slug him in the arm, but before the blow could land a very confused Keanu Reeves sprung forth from Jason's pocket and caught Barrymore's fist right in his oblong face. Reeves' last words were, "Has anyone seen my stapler?"

And now we see that a little humor goes a long way.

Sarah said...

Why didn't you just do a blog like that Justin instead of BLARG BLARGing? It could have actually been considered in the running eh?

Justin said...

Well, that would have been too close to a rip off of Mike's eclectic story. And besides, Mike put thought into his. That post just fell out of my throat and splattered all over Becky's blog.

Besides, the "BLARG" demanded much more thought, and it had a picture! A picture!!

Justin said...

Oh and this post has now beat the previous record of 43 posts on Becky's blog....of course, over 30 of them are just mine...but hey, a record's a record!

Justin said...

Well, let's bring this post-thread back on topic, shall we?

Becky, that's a lovely picture of you and Matt! You guys make a terrific couple! Please invite me and Mike to the reception so I can eat all your cake. ALL OF IT!!! All your cake are belong to me!

Becky said...

You wish you had all my cake! Just for that, I'm going to have pie at my wedding!

Justin said...

Very well....all your PIE are belong to me then!! HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

BLARG!

Justin said...

Fifty-one!!
