~  On British coins, the monarchs are facing the opposite direction in which their immediate predecessor faced.

~  Black vultures, gray wolves, trumpeter swans, and sea horses have something in common.  They all mate for life.

 ~  Harry S. Truman was the first president assigned a code name by they Secret Service.  It was "General."  His successor in the White House, Dwight D. Eisenhower, the only general elected president in the 20th century, was known by the code name "Providence."

~  Mike Tyson is both the youngest boxer to win a world heavyweight championship and the youngest to lose it.  He won the title from Trevor Berbick in November 1986 at age 20 years and 4 months, and lost it to James "Buster" Douglas in 1990 at age 23 years and 7 months.


I read this head line yesterday on MSN.COM.  I could not believe it!

"Stepmom Indicted in Death of N.C. Girl as Autopsy Reveals Her Head is Still Missing"

Really?  It took an autopsy to reveal her head is missing?  I know that is not what they were trying to say, but that is what they said.  Stupid...

Big Shout out to Btut for having us over for the DAYTONA 500!  Had so much fun with Big D and Triple T, TCW, Wino Bill, and the Right Wrights!  What a fun afternoon, what good food, what good friends...

...and what a birthday was had the next day.  Happy Birthday Lisa Tutb!  Love.
Please see previous blog for more on Lisa Tutb and Btut's acting abilities. 


Yep, that is exactly what Btut told Lisa Tutb on Sunday.  It took forever for me to get a picture of them not laughing!  

 "No red beans and rice for you!"

 "No red beans and ri......(insert laughter here)

 I must have said something to piss Btut off in this one....

 "No red beans and rice for you!"  That is a great face Btut, but you are supposed to be looking mad and angry at Lisa Tutb (who by the way is laughing her a** off).

 "Ok, hold up.  I can do this.  Just give me a minute."

 "LL you shut up.  Your are the one making me laugh."  Oh yeah, Btut, what is so funny about dead kittys?

"No red beans and rice for you!"  This is the best one of both of their faces looking all mean.  Only problem is, again, Btut is not looking at the right person! 

Ladies, keep your day job.  Acting is not for you!

Lucky for you (or unlucky depending on how you look at it), I have a song stuck in my head.  Sang it all the way to work this morning.

Are you ready?.....

...that's right, it is "Word Up" by Cameo!  Ready to flashback?  Come on - sing it with me..


You pretty ladies around the world
Got a weird thing to show you
So tell all the boys and girls
Tell your brother, your sister and your mamma too
we´re about to go down
And you know just what to do
Wave your hands in the air like you don´t care
Gilde by the people as they start to look and stare
Do your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick mamma
Come on baby tell me what´s the word

Word up everybody says
When you hear the call you´ve got to get it underway
Word up it´s the code word
No matter where you say it you know that you´ll be heard

Now all you sucker DJ´s who think you´re fly
There´s got to be a reason and we know the reason why
Why you put on those airs and you act real cool
Got to realize that you´re acting like fools
If there´s music we can use it
You´re free to dance
We don´t have the time for psychological romance
No romance, no romance, no romance for me mamma
Come on baby tell me what´s the word

By the way, just thought I would add this is my 600th post...

I am sooooo excited about Survivor Season 21 starting!  Last night Rayray, TCW and I watched Survivor Redemption Island, and I hate to say it, but people are already getting on my nerves (hint:  Phillip)!  Btut did not appreciate him either (text: "I do not care for the guy in the red panties").  There are many reasons to be excited about this season:

Love the fact that Boston Rob is back.
Love love the fact that Russell is back.
Love love love Jeff Probst and his amazing dimples.
Love love love....ok, I will stop with the love...

Some contestants are just so stupid...

Phillip, if you were a former member of 3 secret government agencies, would you really have told everybody in your tribe the second you got to camp?  Not really a covert operation going on in that brain.

Kristina, you were smart enough to find the idol without a clue, but then so dumb to tell anyone (especially Phillip) that you had it.  How did that work out for you?

Phillip, how many ways can you miss pronounce Francesca's name?  She only corrected you like 12 times.  What kind of spy can't even get a name right?  Please, just give me a break!

So, basically, I don't like Phillip, Kristina, or Francesca...for now.  I am sure some others will make the "Stupid List" next week!

 ~  The final answer to the final questions on the TV quiz show in the hit 2008 movie "Slumdog Millionaire" was Aramis.  The question was "What was the name of the third musketeer?"  The other two musketeers were Athos and Porthos.

 ~  Badminton is the world's fastest racket sport.  In championship play, the shuttlecock has been sent flying at speeds exceeding 200 mph.

~  There are 5 fingers on a bats wing - a small thumb and four long, thin fingers that serve as the ribs of the wing.

 ~  Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address was only 10 sentences long.

~  The longest rivier in Europe is the Volvga River.  It is 2,290 miles long and is located entirely in Russia.

Rachel and I watched the movie "The Social Network" on Saturday night.  I had put off watching it thinking it would not be good, but, boy, was I wrong!  It is a great movie and I can't wait to watch it again.  The actor playing Mark Zuckerberg was superb.  I can sure see why he won the Golden Globe for best actor.

Favorite moments from the movie:

Lawyer: "Mr. Zuckerberg, do I have your full attention?"
Mark Zuckerberg: "No."
Lawyer: "Do you think I deserve it?"
Mark Zuckerberg: "What?"
Lawyer: "Do you think I deserve your full attention?"
Mark: "I had to swear an oath before we began this deposition, and I don't want to perjure myself, so I have a legal obligation to say no."
Lawyer: " You don't think I deserve your attention."
Mark Zuckerberg: "I think if your clients want to sit on my shoulders and call themselves tall, they have the right to give it a try, but there's no requirement that I enjoy sitting here listening to people lie. You have part of my attention - you have the minimum amount. The rest of my attention is back at the offices of Facebook, where my colleagues and I are doing things that no one in this room, including and especially your clients, are intellectually or creatively capable of doing. Did I adequately answer your condescending question?

Marilyn Delpy: "You really hate the Winklevoss twins, don't you? "
Mark Zuckerberg: "I don't hate anybody. The Winklevi aren't suing me for intellectual property theft. They're suing me because for the first time in their lives, the world didn't work the way it was supposed to for them."
(loved how he referred to the Winklevoss twins as plural!  this is Rachel's favorite line)

Mark Zuckerberg: "You know you really don't need a damn forensic team to get to the bottom of this. If you guys were the inventors of Facebook you'd have invented Facebook"
Divya Narendra (Max Minghella): "I'm just gonna stand over your shoulder while you write us a check."
Mark Zuckerberg: "No shit"

Erica Albright (Rooney Mara): "You are going to go through life thinking that girls don't like you because you're a nerd. And I want you to know from the bottom of my heart that that won't be true. It'll be because you're an asshole."

Hope you all have a good weekend...and I hope you noticed that I posted every day this week!

I was looking at my blog stats yesterday (don't worry, I can't tell who reads my blog) and there was a section that showed me "Pageviews by Country."  I didn't know the difference between a pageview and a hit.  A pageview is when someone does a search that pulls your blog into the list, and then they actually open your site!  A hit is just when your site is added to a list from a search. 

Well, believe it or not, I have had 4,875 pageviews to my blog!  I know that most of them clicked on my site, saw what it was, and then said "why do I always get such sh*t when I search."  I have even said that myself.  But it does make me feel kind of good!

Gee, thanks!

...the Southern Food Wiggly Family World Piggly Market (you know where I am talking about) has their 12 pack Pepsi products on sale for 5 for $13, or $2.60 a 12 pack. 

I thought that was a good deal, and I wanted to make fun of their name!

 ~  The green jackets at the Masters Tournament were first used in 1937 and were worn by club members so they could easily spotted by tournament spectators seeking information.  The current tradition of awarding a green jacket to the champion was started in 1949, when Sam Snead was the winner.

 ~  Henry Ford threatened to "be through with manufacturing" if Prohibition was repealed.  He explained, "I wouldn't be interested in putting automobiles into the hands of a generation soggy with drink."  He didn't deliver on his threat when Prohibition was repealed.

~  The Kit Kat bar is considered a good luck charm by test-taking Japanese students.  Its Japanese pronunciation, kitto katto, sounds very much like the phrase kitto katsu, which roughly translates to mean "win without fail."

 ~  Spuds McKenzie was really a female bull terrier named Honey Tree Evil Eye.

~  The Jeffersons sitcom ran for 253 episodes from 1975 to 1985, 43 more than its parent sitcom, All in the Family, which ran for 210 episodes from 1971 to 1979.

3.    Doritos' commercials were fabulous.
4.    My daughter is addicted to TV marathons - Saturday it was a marathon of "GLEE" (which she can't stand) then Sunday "America's Next Top Model."

10.  Bison's hot wings and cheese fries rock.

Today is TCW's birthday!  He will be older than me today for approximately 24 hours.  I always kid him about that. 

It is hard to believe that 31 years ago (~age 11) we had a roller skating party together for our birthday!  No, not at the Skate Castle, that was not built yet, but at Phillips Rollercade.

I have always said that great people were born in February under the sign of Aquarius...this just proves my point.

Love you TCW!

I meant to post this yesterday...

Jimmy's Grandaughter (Tatum - love her) came home from school on Tuesday and told her mom (Bree - love her):

"Tomorrow is Otter Day, and if he sees himself, he will stay for 30 days."

Thanks to Btut for being a guest blogger today!

~  Antoine’s is the oldest American restaurant in continuous operation.  The wine cellar is 165 feet in length and can accommodate 30,000 bottles of wine.

~  New Orleans claims to be the birthplace of the word “cocktail.”  In the 1830’s, Frenchman named Antoine Peychaud operated a pharmacy in the French Quarter.  In the evenings for socialization, he made his own bitters combined with cognac and served the concoction in a double-sided egg cup.  The French word for the little chicken egg cup is “coquetier.”  The Americans mispronounced the word, instead calling it a “cocktay.”  Peychaud Bitters is still produced in New Orleans today.

~  Before going to battle in WW-I, soldiers drank champagne and cognac for courage.  A combination of these two spirits became known as the “French 75.”  The American soldiers name the drink to honor a French 75mm artillery shell.

~  Southern Comfort was created in 1874 in a bar in the French Quarter by bartener Martin Wilkes Heron.  SoCo, as it is popularly called, soon became an American icon.  It was originally called “cuffs and buttons” and the name Southern Comfort didn’t about until the 1884 World’s Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition in New Orleans.  SoCo’s first recorded use in a cocktail was at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair.

~  Café Lafitte in Exile is the oldest gay bar in America!  Tennessee Williams was a regular, as were other closeted movie stars that would visit on a regular basis.  This bar is a mecca for gay community.  Originally opened in the 1930’s at the location of Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop, the owners were forced to move to the present location in 1953 when the building became for sale and, unfortunately, the gentlemen could not afford to purchase the building.  A huge parade marched down Bourbon Street to the present location, and Lafitte was in exile…… This bar is home to a letter, written by the US Government, asking them to stop serving our military men.  It still hangs in the bar today.
