3. right now
I recognize myself as more of a geek than I ever possibly could have imagined.

Oh, the shame of it all!

14. Julie Andrews, singing and twirling on a mountaintop.
At least as surreal an image as Cleese with the parrot.

But arguably the best ST/TNG ever. No cable, dammit!

15. No, you don't quite have it. It's metaphor (which I know that you know)
So, to talk about her spinning on the mountain, you would just say "Julie Andrews on the Mountaintop", and that would be a metaphor for spinning and singing.

Or you could say "Julie Andrews, singing and twirling" and that would imply a mountaintop.

"Julie Andrews, on the mountaintop. Julie, down the slope. The Beast of Austria. Napolean at the Waterloo."

16. My cousin came out to visit me in CO this year.
When he called, he asked about camping in the mountains and getting away from it all (he's a NYC cabbie). He said, "I'm picturing the my vacation, like Julie Andrews spinning on the mountain top." I knew exactly what he was talking about.

Would you have preferred I said "Richard Gere, climbing the fire escape to Julie Roberts"? It was my first idea, but I thought it was too much like Crusher's Romeo and Juliet comparison. (Plus I hate that movie.)
