A Good Resolution Maybe?

Last weekend I realized that I'm spending way too much time on TMZ and not enough time on CNN or C-Span or whatever the smart people are reading.

This is an actual transcript from a game of Catchphrase. My partner, B, was trying to get me to guess "Sputnik"

B: It was the first Russian Satellite (or something like that)
me: ::dumb look::
B (Trying another angle): Okay, what's another word for potato?
me: Po-tah-toe? ::laughing::
B: Okay, the dog that is the mascot for Target...
me: Spuds McKenzie! Spud.
B: Yes! It sounds king of like that.
B: This guy Lachey
me: Nick!
me (VERY EXCITED!): Sputnik!

Mark: that was painful.

heeeee (and yes, I have that whole exchange on video along with 20 more minutes of game play - and no, I won't show you. :P)

Haha!!

That sounds about as painful as when I tried to get someone to guess "Smells Fishy." Well, you know my twisted mind - I don't think I'll be invited to any more parties with those people.

Yep..I was thinking I might get a subscription to Newsweek or something because all I know is celeb news. That is sad.

I'm with you, one of my resolutions is to get back into "real" news. I don't want to start grad school and have nothing to offer other than the latest dirt on Britney.

Haha, that's awesome that it took Nick Lachey to get to the answer.
