The Brain Gym

Ok. I don’t even feel ashamed.  I am sure I probably should. The new season of the Bachelor starts tomorrow.  No, I don’t think it’s all real and not staged, produced, heavily edited one way or another, etc. But yes, it’s good entertainment and usually pretty funny.  So I watch. Judge me if you must.  Or, join my Bachelor fantasy league online. LOL  My team name is Fake drama; Real humor.  Comment or message me […]

The Brain Gym

Welcome to Sunday, friends!  We made it another week! This is the time of year for many holiday parties.  Sometimes parties and church gatherings are potluck style.  Potlucks can be fun or terrifying, in my opinion.  Sometimes you get to taste the most incredible thing and you can score some great recipes.  Sometimes you don’t feel hungry suddenly. Ok, let’s use the online dice roller again today to pick your fate.  http://letterdice.iphonemarks.com/ I rolled a […]

It’s definitely time to be Christmas shopping.  I like when I usually have mine done by now.  I certainly do not this year. Therefore, I have Christmas shopping on my mind. Today for your letter, use this online dice roll.  Only you will know if you cheated and re-rolled.  I did it and got V, so you know I didn’t cheat because anyone with brain cells would re-roll that! http://letterdice.iphonemarks.com/ 1. Someone on your Christmas […]

As in occupations, not Steve Jobs. Today’s theme is all about jobs.  That thing I sure miss a lot.  WORK. For the first letter to use, use the first letter of the name of your current or most recent employer.  For me that would be “I”.  Use the last letter of each answer as the first letter for the next. Here we go! 1. A job little kids dream of having: Ice cream maker 2. […]

Well, we are out of town this weekend and for some reason I thought I could get away with skipping my Sunday Scattergories post.  Now, don’t get me wrong.  I enjoy the challenge of putting these together, but we were focused on family things and I kind of thought no one would notice a week off. How wrong I was.  By 8:43 this morning I had a scathing email waiting for me. So, welcome to Monday […]

The Brain Gym

Considering I’m one sip into my coffee, it might have been a bold strategy picking history as the topic this week.   I’m not necessarily known for winning many of the history categories on Jeopardy. Speaking of bold strategies… Hmm.. Let’s just start with the first letter of your first name and then use the last letter of each answer as the first for the next. Ok, here goes! 1. A U.S. President (first or last […]

Today, I present you with the subject of school.  Enjoy! For your starting letter, use the first letter of what you had for the main course of your dinner last night.  I had sloppy Jane’s (Tom […]

Person in a haunted house: running with chainsaw guy […]

Happy Sunday people!  I’m sitting on the couch.  The coffee just beeped.  The man is teaching the smaller man to make pancakes.  All happy noises and smells. Tom just delivered me my coffee and I’m zero drinks in when he says this, “Did you hear they sent a submarine down to the Titanic? They were shocked to find out the pool was still filled.” So obviously I’ll need every drop of my coffee today. I’ve been […]
