How You Life Your Life

You seem to be straight forward, but you keep a lot inside.
You say whatever is on your mind. Other people’s reactions don’t phase you.
You prefer a variety of friends and tend to change friends quickly.
You tend to dream big, but you worry that your dreams aren’t attainable.
How Do You Live Your Life?

I know Karol is sooo freaking out right now.


OK, I’ll put her out of her beloved statewide misery.

Who is the greatest songwriter of all time: Paul Simon or Billy Joel.

And yes, those are the only choices. And no, I don’t know who John Lennon is.

Why the ____ are you telling me this?

The talmud says a man may divorce his wife for burning his soup. The reason? Because if he’s willing to divorce her for burning his soup, they must have bigger problems. I love Judaism.

In other news, no wonder women aren’t allowed to read the Talmud. Can you imagine if they found out what else was in there?

Directions: Reduce these sentences to familiar proverbs.

1. A period of preeminence is passed through by each and every canine.
2. It is fruitless to be lachrymose because of scattered lacteal fluid.
3. Similar sire, similar scion.
4. Articles which coruscate are not fashioned from aureate metal; at least not necessarily.
5. Prodigality is produced by precipitancy.
6. Pulchritude does not penetrate the dermal plane.
7. It is not proper for mendicants to be indicative of preferences.
8. Your immature gallinaceans must not be calculated prior to their being produced.
9. A pterodactyl ungulate mammal may be addressed toward aqueous fluid, but it cannot be compelled to quaff.
10. It is fondness for notes of exchange that constitutes the tuberous structure of all satanically inspired principles.
11. Lithoidal fragments ought not to be hurled by tenants of vitreous abodes.
12. Beholden vessel never exceeds one hundred degrees Celsius.
13. A feathered creature clasped in the manual members is the equivalent, value-wise, of a brace of the bosky growth.
14. A detached fragment of the terrestrial lithosphere, whether of igneous, sedimentary, or metamorphic origin, and whether acquiring its approximation of sphericity though hydraulic action or other attrition, when continuously maintained in motion about its temporary axis and with its velocity accelerated by an increase in the angle declivity, is, because of abrasive action produced by the incessant but irregular contact between its periphery and the contiguous terrain, effectively prevented from accumulating on its external surface an appreciable amount of the cryptogamous vegetation normally propagated in umbrageous situations under optimum conditions of undeviating atmospheric humidity, quiescence, and comparative sequestration from corrosive-erosive agencies.

Answers posted tomorrow…leave your guesses in comment section as per usual…No cheating, also, as per usual.

Quote of the Yesterday

Tuesday, February 27th, 2007 by Dawn Summers

“A hustle doesn’t take a day, it takes months…months of losing five dollars will now yield me hundreds.” – Fisch on my graduation to playing full games.

And not coincidentally, this quote was followed by today’s quote:

“This is the highest stakes Scrabble game you’ve ever played,” – Fisch on my letting the ten dollars lost on my “Kate Winslet hasn’t been nominated for more than three Oscars” bet, ride on the final Scrabble game of the night.

(I would publish the picture of that board here, but Fisch destroyed it in a fit of bad loser rage…which sounded a little bit like “waaaa, even when I win, I lose.”

Dawn takes on all comers…
