Don't Worry, I Read the Second Book This Afternoon

It was a busy weekend from going to jewelry parties (no thanks, I’m here for the free wine, quit with the sales pitch, already) to going to baby showers (anyone who thinks that it’s a good idea to waste a perfectly good candy bar in order to make it look like fecal matter in a diaper that will only end up in a landfill anyway does not share my affinity for candy bars… or my affinity for not discussing poop) to watching the Superbowl (yay for good friends, I did not even have to bust out book #2 of the Twilight series to keep myself entertained) to playing bridge with my parents (Jeebus, I’m old) to kissing The Funasaurus.

That last item may not seem monumental to you, but I typically do a lot of Funasaurus smooching, and I have cut myself off for the last WEEK because he came down with a bit of a sore throat and a cold and I had no desire to partake in that crap. Sunday we deemed him “fine enough” and got back to the kissing already. Monday I woke up with a sore throat. Happily, this germ has not been debilitating so much as annoying, so I’ve been chugging tea and eating soup for lunch. Wheee. My life is awesome.

Actually, it did get pretty awesome last night when I went out for Ethiopian. Good lord, but I love Ethiopian food. It was really well prepared, too. I wanted to go back tonight. But we’re refraining, and waiting until next week to go back. My friend who joined me for dinner was headed to trivia night at a bar afterwards, and I was invited. Because of the annoying cold-ish like thing I have festering in my throat, I decided to decline. Also because I suck at trivia and hate feeling like a moron who does not retain useless (nor useful, really) facts. Then I found out that one of the categories last night was The Muppets.

Opportunity came knocking, and I turned it down for tea. GAH.

There must be something about Colorado that makes women have those sales parties. I swear i never went to so many f-ing parties as when i lived there. Jewelery, make up, lingerie, clothes, household junk, candles.

I think i must have been lonely enough to actually attend these things. Ack!

The last party I was invited to (but passed on), was for some very expensive skin care maching thingamajig. Like I'm really going to spend 300 bucks and start using heavy machinery on my face at home after a drunken demo at a neighbor's house . . .

Tupperware? maybe

Face eraser's? no

I hate the "no-kissing" rule when one of us is sick, but it is necessary. The last time we broke it I got his horrible cold from which I have yet to recover. Get well soon!

OK, just so you don't feel left out:

1) Which Muppet was related to the owner of the theatre which housed the Muppet Show and what was the relation?

2) What was the name of the OTHER female pig singer?

3) Which Muppet had their own costume person during the Muppet Show?

4) Name two episodes of the Muppet Show in which Kermit indicates that he might actually like Miss Piggy.

5) What season did Lou Zealand join the Muppet Show?

6) Lou Zealand said that he began his act with a partner and different type of fish. What type of fish was it, who was the partner, and why did it fail?
