So on Friday night I got a new tattoo….
The tattoo artist asked where I was from and when I said Texas he said, “So you know a lot about horses.” Not a question…a statement. This is how the rest of the world views Texans, we’re just a bunch of ten-gallon hat-wearing hicks who know everything there is to know about our four-legged equine friends. I find it pretty amusing actually.
I should have responded with, “So you know a lot about sheep, being a Kiwi and all.” but the needle gouging into my arm sucked all my ability to have a witty repartee straight out of my brain.
I’m already thinking about the next tattoo…..
Saturday night Tom and I had some beers at the house. And we wound up finding this amazing online game which we turned into a drinking game. Somehow we stumbled across Google Feud. It’s a trivia game loosely based upon Family Feud where you try to guess how Google will auto-populate something based upon the most popular searches.
Here are some examples….
Some of them made me laugh ’til I cried such as this one…..
The answer “just panda chickens” made me snort beer through my nose. Along with another one in which the phrase was “I smell” and the most popular search was “like beef”. It brought tears to my eyes. On a serious note, the amount of people Googling “Why do I smell gas” is somewhat frightening. I feel like it would be much smarter and more effective to actually go search for a gas leak.
Tom and I played this game for quite a long time. I don’t think we ever got all of the answers right, they were so very random. Although we did eventually learn that “gay” was almost always in there somewhere. “Weed” was also a common answer.
The rules Tom and I made were if either of us got a question correct the other person had to take a drink. If either of us got the very top answer, the other person had to drink for three seconds.
You got three tries to come up with all the answers before you lost. In our game, if one person got three answers in a row wrong, they had to take a shot of alcohol. However, if you were about to get your third X, or if you REALLY wanted to get the answer right so the other person would lose on their turn, you would be allowed to do ONE Google search per round to find the answer after completing a physical action chosen by the opponent.
Tom made me do 5 push-ups which took ages and probably was pretty sad to watch. I made him twerk to a song for 10 seconds which was hilarious and very satisfying to watch. I know, I know, Tom and I make GREAT adults. But if you are looking for a fun game to play, I highly suggest Google Feud. It’s awesome. And if you play by my and Tom’s rules, it’s even more awesome.
This morning after the gym I stopped at the air force base coffee shop to grab a latte. I was driving up to the North Shore to some fancy food shop that I was hoping had dried guajillo and arbol chilies (they did!!!) when I happened to notice for the first time what was on my coffee cup.
I shit you not people, I actually thought “Well, helloooo there.” I mean come on, that is one good lookin’ bird. Waaay better than those panda chickens you hear about. And I kinda felt like she was trying to seduce me. Look at those eyes…that’s definitely a chick bird with one thing on her pea-sized brain.
God, I’m so weird. Sorry.
The side of the coffee cup said the bird is a cassowary. So I got home and Googled it. And I felt like I was trolling a dating website where that cassowary bird only put up her best photo on her profile, you know “the angles” trick, where someone puts up photos that make them look way better looking than real life. Because these were the other photos I found….
It’s an interesting looking bird, I’ll give it that. But that coffee cup picture was misleading because I find the other pictures nowhere near as beautiful. That bird pulled the angles trick on me. Got me all interested…..
Gotta go cook some chili.
