The Nitty Gritty

You may be asking yourself...."The Nitty Gritty, that's an interesting choice for a blog name. Where did that come from?" If that indeed is your question, this is the post for you to read.

To fully understand the title of my blog, you must embark on a journey to find the movie called Nacho Libre. However, before you begin this search, it is crucial that you know the following:
--In order to enjoy the movie, you must be goofy, silly, and have time to waste watching a ridiculous film. (created by the makers of Napoleon Dynamite if that tells you anything)
If you fit that criteria, you can rent it in the old comedies section at the movie rental store, buy it for $4.00 at Wal-Mart, check out, or just ask me or any of my friends if you can borrow it. We are all addicted to it.

There is a segment of the movie where Nacho, a young, strapping friar of an orphanage is trying to get to know the orphanage's newest teacher Sister Encarnacion (not sure how to spell that). She is a beautiful, young, wise woman. During this exchange Nacho begins by saying, "Let's get down to the nitty gritty. Who is this Encarnacion?" She responds by saying with a very thick hispanic accent, "Well, my favorite color is light tan; my favorite animal is poopies; I love serving the Lord...."

It's just funny. You have to see it to enjoy it. So hopefully you will check it out. Until then...."Get that CORN outta my FACE" and "take it easy."
