Trivia Thursday

Yes, returned to Trivia Night. It even smelled like a Trivia Night ....
A couple familiar faces at the Grand, and a lot of new faces too. Round one was awesome, just one point behind the highest score. We are on a roll, and luck on our side. Our brains are really working.... ha ha...
Round #2 was a bit different. Even when they had multiple choice, we chose the wrong choice. I mean, how do I know if Lincoln died on a Tuesday or Friday? Is that common knowledge? Pinocchio? made of Cedar or Pine..... so hard to remember
And Venus spins clockwise, well we did figure out that the sun would rise in the west on Venus....OK, so I am dumb. Astronomers, I read, don't even have an explanation why it spins clockwise.

Big Confession: as if we were playing who wants to be a millionaire, we cheated only slightly and called my 11 year old for the answer to one of the questions. He was 100% sure of his answer, and he was right. Milhouse is the only Simpson character with eyebrows.

La Girl did win a beer ticket for knowing that the Guinness book of world records was the book most stolen from libraries. Great playing !

My baby is 10.

Imagine, 10 years since I had that big baby boy. Time does fly.

I watched The Heartbreak Kid and it is very entertaining, funny, and a little racy at times. Ben Stiller is awesome as usual. A very adult movie. link to the clip below...

October Blog Smog

Well that 73 years old man won the pumpkin rowing contest once again.... his advice was to have a really good pumpkin and to be really in good physical shape. Very true. The man announced his retirement. Next year, those from Hollywood and Vancouver will have to return. They might have a chance.
Speaking of good physical condition... on CNN they were speaking of websites with info for young girls on how to become skinny. Pro-Ana, or something like that. You could read her info and learn how to get down to a gorgeous 86 lbs. Man alive .... what is the world coming to. This stick girl has 600+ followers. All these blogs ( ah hem) , and face books, and My space .... with such freedom of expression, is just a big recipe for disaster to those kids who are killing time, and looking for "a way".

Donald Trump is hanging out with Larry King tonight. Good Grief, he is full of himself ( he is simply very honest, he calls it) Going on and on about beauty.... and he says he "knows beauty" .... and tells us Angelina Jolie is not good looking. That should go over good. He's a good one to be speaking of beauty. He hates Bush, but loves the tax incentives,.... well yeah, he should. His book is called "Think Big & Kick Ass". Rosie called him a "comb over bunny", and that just cracks me up. you should try something really daring... try to picture him in the shower. Scary eh?

Life and Sex After Death

A couple made a deal that whomever died first would come back and inform the
Other of the afterlife. Their biggest fear was that there was no afterlife.

After a long life together, the husband was the first to die.
True to his word, he made contact,
"Connie....Connie. ":
"Is that you, Joe?"
"Yes, I've come back like we agreed."
"That's wonderful! What's it like?"
"Well, I get up in the morning, I have sex. I have breakfast and then it's
Off to the golf course. I have sex again, bathe in the warm sun and then
Have sex a couple of more times. Then I have lunch (you'd be proud lots of
Greens) another romp around the golf course, then pretty much have sex the
Rest of the afternoon. After supper, it's back to golf course again. Then
it's more sex until late at night. I catch some much needed sleep and then
The next day it starts all over again.
"Oh, Joe you surely must be in Heaven!"

Not exactly... I'm a rabbit on a golf course in Arizona .."

Rainy Friday

Well the end of the week is finally here. Loverboy is gone fishing, and looks like I am in for another long weekend, me and the boys. The boys keep busy, and they don't really require much from me, except for food and supervision I guess.

Lipstick alert & lead .... better read up on the latest, and you may need to change your lip colour.

I have been busy the past couple weeks putting up baseboard and also some finish around some doors upstairs which had never been done. I may take up the hammer again yesterday. I learned many lessons in this quick carpentry career....

1) it's kinda fun

2) Measure twice and cut once is a true saying

3) Jig saws have cords that are too short

4) That nail punch is so cool. Every woman should have one

I also put down a threshold between 2 laminate floors. Had to cut 4 metal strips. And realized that goggles would be a good idea. Of course, I could not find goggles, and used whatever I could find. It was really cute to see, cutting that metal with a jig saw and wearing Roland's skidoo helmet with the shield down !

I must turn in and read up on the latest from Warren Buffet. An article says that his latest advice is that you should not leave your money to your kids. I'll be sure not to pass this article on to our parents...... he he.

Mondays, PMS & the chills

Yes, it's quite a combo. Just out of the tub, trying to warm up. Ate too much over the Thanksgiving weekend but was really nice to see my brother as he was down for a visit.

Hosted a great dinner party on Friday, to thank some friends who make my life a nicer place. Lots of conversation, and laughter, and many refills. I'll have to have another before the holiday season. The silent one is always a great help, and so appreciated.

Saturday we went to put carrots out for deer, it was a beautiful day, lots of nice scenery... just me and Loverboy. Really nice. Fall colours are spectacular right now. No sign of deer.... yet.

Sherry & Enemas

HOUSTON (Reuters) - Charges have been dropped against a Texas woman who was accused of giving her husband a sherry enema that killed him, the prosecutor in the case said on Wednesday.
Tammy Jean Warner had been scheduled to face trial for negligent homicide in the May 2004 death of Michael Warner, 58, but Brazoria County District Attorney Jeri Yenne said the charges were dismissed a month ago for lack of evidence.
The dead man had had "a severe alcohol issue" and it was not clear his wife had committed a crime, Yenne said in a telephone interview.

At the time of Warner's indictment in 2005, police told the Houston Chronicle the woman had given her husband two large bottles of sherry, which raised his blood alcohol level to 0.47 percent, or nearly six times the level considered legally drunk in Texas.
Warner admitted administering the enema but denied she caused the death of her husband, who was a machine-shop operator. The incident occurred at their home in Lake Jackson, near Houston.
She told the newspaper her husband was addicted to enemas and often used alcohol in that manner. Police said Warner had a throat ailment that left him unable to drink the sherry. ~~

The story is strange, but..., it's about the only way I could take the sherry Auntie May offers me.
