We were watching an old episode of Match Game last week.
For those of you that don't remember that show - it involved a hilarious star studded panel - 6 of them -
and 2 contestants.
The gist of it was a question was read out with a BLANK stragically placed in the middle or end of it.
The contestants chose what the blank would be - and hoped that the panel would come up with the same responses - points were gained for each " Match ".
Oh and it tended to get a little risque ( this is an old show so quite risque actually for it's day )
Question: ( or as close as I can remember it )
A Football coach lamented that while most teams were going to the Super Bowl - his team was so terrible that he'd be going to the _______ bowl ( play along if you'd like )
John yells out excitedly - FISH BOWL !!!
Suzan says - Fish bowl?
Suzan says - WTH?
John says - Yeah - all crammed into a fish bowl
Suzan says - Please don't explain it - it makes it even worse.
Suzan says - You could never go on a game show
John says - What would you pick brainiac?
Suzan says - TOILET BOWL - obviously - c'mon John - what does a Fish Bowl have to do with a bad team?
John says - Only you would pick toilet bowl.................your mind's always in the gutter.
And we watched as the contestant responded with Toilet Bowl.
And we watched while she got a perfect match as all 6 on the panel said the same word.
A clean sweep.
John says - That does it - I'm finished watching - what a ridiculous show.
Suzan says - How did the Montreal Canadiens do against Buffalo ? ( our Hockey Team )
John says - they lost - you know they did
Suzan says - Ugghhh - hope they're not going down the fish bowl..................
You wouldn't want to see him watching Wheel of Fortune - it's actually painful to see.
Sometimes I shed a tear for him.
I was sick last week -
John says - NOW will you start putting bloody socks on in the winter?
Suzan says - Socks have nothing to do with catching a cold. Colds are viruses.
John says - PEOPLE DO NOT GO BAREFOOT IN THE WINTER
Suzan says - Look - I'm not dancing in the snow for crying out loud - I'm walking around my house.
John says - IT DOESN'T MATTER - PEOPLE ARE SUPPOSED TO WEAR SOCKS IN THE WINTER.
Suzan says - Well I'll put flip flops on if it drives you that insane - but that's not why I got a cold.
John says - Why do you always have to be such a rebel?
OMG - A Rebel in Flip Flops...........................take a walk on the wild side.................
( in flip flops, that's me, I'm a risk taker obviously )
Please don't ever tell him that I sometimes ( most times really ) put my bare feet into my fleece lined boots if I'm just going somewhere quickly - I think he'd call an intervention.
I told you all that John's on a mission to keep the heating bills down last week.
Well not only are we playing tag with the thermostat - we're playing tag with the fire place too now.
( it's gas - so just a switch )
Suzan says - Listen to me very carefully - if I turn the fireplace on - DO NOT come behind me and turn it off 5 minutes later.
John says - We don't need it on 24/7
Suzan says - It was only on 5 minutes - that's a big leap from 24/7
John says - WE'RE NOT PAYING 5000.00 TO HEAT THE HOUSE THIS WINTER.
Suzan says - I think that's how I got my cold actually - the house is too cold - I can't stand it
John says - I TOLD YOU TO PUT SOCKS ON
Later we were putting groceries away -
I lined up all the meat on the counter
John says - What are you doing that for ?
Suzan says - Well if you're going to keep the house like a freezer we might as well take advantage of it.
I cook a lot of small meals in the toaster oven...................
I made a chicken in there last week - while I was preparing veggies to go with it - I asked John to turn it on
John says - Do I put the dial on toast?
Suzan says - Yes John - while most people have roasted chicken - I think we'll change things up a bit and have toasted chicked - ( that's the rebel in me I guess )
2) I explained to him that the timer only lasted 60 minutes - so it would have to be turned back on for a bit.
I came upstairs to do something or other - when I came down the toaster oven had turned off -
Suzan says - Didn't you hear the the bell?
John says - Yeah - what was that?
Suzan says - The oven - it needed to be turned back on -
John says - Oh - so did you turn it back on?
Suzan says - No - I feel like having raw toasted chicken..........................
The funniest line by a politician this week....................
A true Dirty Harry moment lol
John McCain snarling at protesters - " Get out of here, you low life scum ".................
Canadian politicians, on the other hand, are masters at denial - changing " select " words into
Pierre Elliot Trudeau - watch him get out of this one ! ( and his disgust of reporters LOL )
Winter started late here -
But it came - February is my worst month - I hate it ( even Valentine's day can't make me like it )
John says - Well it's not all bad - the Twin's birthdays are in February
Suzan says - They were premature - they were supposed to be born in April - which is one of the nicest months...............
It's the month where a lot of people end up depressed - and I get it.
By February - if you live in a 4 climate part of the world - you've had just about all you can take of short days and cold weather and snow.
At least there's hope - February's a bad one.
( even if your twin daughter's were born in it )
At least it's a short month - and one week of it has officially passed.
THREE WEEKS LEFT
THREE WEEKS LEFT
THREE WEEKS LEFT
Have a great weekend everyone -
I have a few birthday celebrations this weekend - and then I may just hibernate for ......................
( with socks on )
