Yes, I outsmarted Ken Jennings last night.
The answer was:
“By changing the second half of the word football, you come up with official name of this sport”
and it showed a mini-video of some people playing hacky sack.
The question was, of course, “what is footbag?”
Ken Jennings didn’t know it.
point goes to mike d.
My good friend J. revealed a Killer snack to me recently. It’s a simple combination of raisins and honey roasted peanuts. The honey roasted goodness gets all over the raisins, and the moisture of the raisins get all up ons the dry peanuts. It’s stellar!
Unfortunately, honey roasted peanuts are noticably more expensive than regular peanuts. For this reason, tonight, I am going to attempt to ROAST MY OWN PEANUTS. well, maybe not tonight. But soon. I will update all of you on the success of this project upon its completion.
Unrelated side note:
I went rock climbing last night and jammed my middle finger with authority. It’s all swollen and now it hurts to type the letter ‘K’.
The verdict is in: my teeth are free of cavities and plaque.
Normally, I’d be excited about this. However, I’m a bit wary of my dental hygenist. Last time I was getting a cleaning he said: “well, as long as you floss once in awhile…”
“floss once in awhile”? Have you ever come across a hygenist that has not been grossly militant regarding flossing? In my opinion this really undermines his integrity.
I’d much prefer that he order me to use non-flavored listerine and floss 3 times daily with 14 guage wire than have him simply accept my current dental habits. Some have argued: “but mike d, perhaps your teeth really are perfect.”
Pish Posh. Perfect teeth are plot for fairy tales. no more than that.
Mom: mike, are you going to take your blender with you?
mike d: I have a blender?
Mom: yeah, we got you a blender a long time ago. it’s in the basement. you can take it with you to your new place
I equate this with winning the lottery
dun dun dun
