The Smartest Player today is currently snickersbaxton.

Of course, by the time anyone reads this, it won't be true.

And DAMN the meteorologists for getting my hopes up. Again.

It's a shame this didn't work.

You know...I steal things from Dave Barry's blog, because I can't count on the fact that you all read it yourselves. Just like I can't count on all of you reading Gene's weekly columns, or his chats, despite the fact that they are FUNNY and are often the HIGHLIGHT of my week. Or, at least, my day. My workday. Everyone knows John is the highlight of my week, every week. Awww.

On the other hand, I can just repost things here, and take credit for them, because you all don't do your research.

And on the other hand, you have different fingers.
Dear Jelani,


I just witnessed one of the funniest/scariest displays of nonathletic activity ever - the faculty-student basketball game. Now, for those of you who do not know, I teach at a special education school where we pride ourselves on awarding standard diplomas because "We don't remediate. We accommodate." Well, all of our teachers are pretty much nonathletic (present company included thanx to a weak knee that ruined any possibility of me playing in the US Open or at least playing any kind of real tennis in, I digress). In any event, the students were told not to get rowdy because this was a basketball game (I know, but it's true).

After 32 minutes of playing (8-minute quarters) the score was 30 - 17 in favor of the faculty. I then remembered that our girls team won one game all season and placed third in the league and our boys placed fourth (Go Eagles!).

The story is funnier than it reads, thanx to my poor short term memory, but, hey, you didn't blog, so I am still better.

Crazy, about, commas,
Sure, it might be a little sick, and it might seem a little cruel...

but it's funny.

At least I got the legal question right. BLOG!!!!!!!

"If toast always lands butter-side down, and cats always land on their feet, what happens if you strap toast on the back of a cat and drop it?"

Yes, that guy is pretending to be gay so the models/beautiful women will feel safe to undress infront of him.
So...I'm in the Sheraton Chapel Hill sitting across the hall from the Victoria's Secret District Meet and Greet. Unfortunately, there are no models here, but there are about 10 attractive women over there. Why is this any of my concern? I'm wondering if the one guy sitting in that room is gay. This always fascinates me.
Dear Mr. Oh Bee Juan,

Yes, Bush is the antichrist. Yes, we will be attacked by everyone, except Canada. I think the US is becoming the modern day Great Britain. Remember them? Remember when they had the power to say, "OK, so you want to fight. Then, we are going to help the other side." and countries would stop fighting? We have taken over where Alexander The Great, Great Britain and the Roman Empire stopped.

I think our conquerous attitude is synonymous with a teenager who just got her drivers' license. At first, you go fast. Then you go faster. Then you get reckless. Then you get in a big crash and get the bejesus scared out of you. Then you go slower. If we are not careful, our accident will happen sooner than we think. Do we have enough insurance to cover the damage?

As for Rob, Congrats on the Lasagna (pronounced Luh - zahg - nee).

Now for the rest of you - BLOG!!!!!

Blah blah BLOG, blah BLOG blah blahblog balh BLOG cooking.

Speaking of cooking, I made my very first lasagna last weekend. It was delicious.
More: Bush the antichrist or are we living in the country that will actually be attacked by everyone? Choose one, explain. I'm being serious.
Does anyone realize that "Rock Me Amadeus" was a #1 hit? I was just listening to it. I spent most of that time thinking WTF? Then I realized..."How Bizarre." Are you happy Margaret?
There was once a day when a dear friend decided that he needed a method to keep up with his friends daily lives. Consequently, he devised a way to stay abreast of their happiness, sadness, and randomness. In short, a blog was born. Traditionally, blogs did not exist, but this was a new way for friends to talk, announce and stream their collective consciousnesses.

Somewhere along this sordid journey, his blog began to fade. Not because the his friends no longer loved him or cared to share their daily lives with him, but because his friends no longer loved him or cared to share their daily lives with him.

Amidst his call for people to blog, a solution presented itself - trivia. [insert presentatory orchestral piece here]. Since the birth of our new trivia department, no blogs anymore! I understand the lure of trivia - the thrill of competition, the challenge to exhibit one's brain power, and the demonstration of mousal speed. In our excitement over the new kid on the block, we have forgotten about the kid who got us there.

I say to you, as I complete my stream on mental waste, BLOG. For some of us, blogging is our only refuge, our lifeline. Blogging is what keeps the gun in the barrel, the sleeping pills in the bottle, and the knives in the drawer (probably why I have cooked in a while, but I digress).

Help me help you save me and blog!

Anyone ELSE have too much time on their hands?
The Dumbest Player today is currently snickersbaxton.

But you better believe I got this one right:

Question 9
General : The Everything Quiz (10-Question Average Quizzes)
Complete the title: 'Are You There, God? It's Me, _______?'
I like the harder stuff, it kept us all honest - no bloated scores.
I also like cookies.
Sometimes...a product comes home. Then you start to understand how we can all get assault rifles.

Alright, I'm going to try again. I think I've got an "average stuff" trivia quiz that should not have too many pocket lint questions -- but I cannot promise that. Making a quiz on a very specific topic I could do easily (say The Princess Bride or maybe just for John a Friends quiz) but trying to make something more general has turned out to be somewhat tricky. There are enough questions to get us through a week or so and then I'll come up with something else (or we can always go back to the hard as crap trivia, the random music lyrics, or obscure movie trivia. There's also a premade category for Bible trivia or History/geography but I figured I'd try to be nice.)
Today's quiz included two (2!) questions about the most serious of topics. Read on:

Question 9
General : The World's Only Quiz on Pocket Lint ( Thematic Junk)
What exactly is pocket lint?

  1. Bits and pieces of stuff that collects in a pocket
  2. An insatiable yearning
  3. A species of carnivorous lizard
  4. A type of pneumatic compression analysis equipment

Question 10
General : The World's Only Quiz on Pocket Lint ( Thematic Junk)
Have any famous philosophers, thinkers, or scientific geniuses ever spoken at length about pocket lint?

  1. yes, Einstein did
  2. yes, George W Bush did
  3. yes, Plato did
  4. no
