>Napoleon Dynamite – Rose Growing Skills!


Rosey Pollen @ DungHoe blog has bestowed upon me a blog award. This award however, comes with a movie twist:
I have always been a fan of Napoleon Dynamite and mention as much on my profile at blogger. I even taught a bible study surrounding this movie a few years back. It was a hoot. This is a movie that anyone can relate to, it proves all the more that with enough determination, you can do anything. Including growing roses! I also love to see the underdog win.

I think Napoleon agrees!!!!

    >This is freaking' sweet! I still love this movie. I just watched it again with the director's ( Jared Hess)commentary. How can you NOT know who Napolean Dynamite is? Poor souls!


  3. >Napoleon ROCKS !! I have the movie, the "vote for Pedro" T shirt, a wall poster, calendar, [old now] and the Napolean doll [that when squeezed, utters a selection of Napoleon-isms such as: "Sweet!" and "Hey can I borrow yer guy's phone?" and "So you and me are pretty much friends now, right?" A few years ago I got my hubby a birthday card with Nap. on the outside and "I like you. You've got SKILLS." on the inside. And the guy can seriously dance. Dance skills. I didn't know he was a rosarian too. Super skilled! 🙂

    >We love Napolean Dynamite, too. We watched it because Netflix said it was the kind of movie that told you nothing about the other movies you might like or dislike. Congrats on the award. I'm a rosarian, loosely defined, and you might want to check out my Giveaway!
