Clip show

I've had blog writers block this week. Yesterday I started a blog post about how I've tried to like yogurt but no matter what, I still hate it. About half way through the post, I thought, "I can't do this to my friends. I can't make them read this post. It's just too lame." So I spared you. That's the kind of friend I am.

But I was thinking about how sometimes on TV shows, when they need a break from writing, they do a clip show. In all honesty, those have never been my favorite episodes. Regardless, I decided to do something like a clip show for this post. But unlike the Golden Girls clip shows, I'm not going to show you a bunch of related posts and tie them together to solve some kind of problem at the end. I wish I could, but very few of my posts are related. What I figured I could do is update you on a few old posts that I never followed up on. So, if you ever wondered if we sold that awesome clock last month, or if I continued my reign as Dr. Mario champion, your wait is over my friends.

The Clock
Remember this gem? This clock was on our free table at work and was given to me by my coworkers, Justin and Kathy. I tried to re-gift it back to them, but somehow it kept ending up back on my desk. In case you've forgotten or you're new to my blog, we tried to sell it on craigslist. Our price was fair (trade for Snickers or $125) You are going to be shocked when you find out that it hasn't been sold yet! One person did respond to our post - someone using the alias "Vernice." It seems however, that Vernice may have been on the run because she told Kathy to respond quickly, that time was of the essence (or something like that). I guess Vernice moved on because we never heard from her again. The good news: the clock is still in my possession.

Dr. Mario
Don't worry, I'm still dominating. And writing that last sentence, I'm realizing that I'm as obnoxious as ever when it comes to Dr. Mario. What is it about this game? I mean, am I seriously bragging about my Dr. Mario skills in my blog!? Dr. Mario does weird things to people. My friend Brian wrote about our recent match in his blog, and it was pretty funny.

Halloween Costume
Thanks everyone for the great costume ideas! I blended them all together and went to the party as a Yeti Bat Vampire Slaying Smurf with scissor hands. Ok, that's not true. The truth is that I was still sick and ended up going to the party...are you ready for this? Without. A. Costume. I'm still disappointed in myself when I think of it, but there you go. Oh well - there's always next year.

I think that's enough for today's clip show. If you're still reading, thanks. And don't worry, I'll be back to normal blogging soon.

What, no update on your Scramble skills? I think I know why . . .

Thanks for the highlights reel. Just lettin' you know, you play a prominent role in my blog entry this week. If you still lack ideas for future posts, I guess you can talk about your heroic feat in your next post.

I love Dr. Mario too!! My mom is a super champion and I always play everyone else in my family before challenging my mom. I beat her for the first time ever a couple of months ago!! Next time we're in Michigan, watch out :)

we all know Vernice Meadows is always on the run. Apparently looking at the clock from her desk isn't enough. it HAS to be ON her desk.

Justin "Vernice" Ricci (we all know it's you)- I've seen you standing in the corner by Elizabeth's desk swinging the monkey pendulum and giggling. Keep your dirty paws off my clock.

I still maintain that if you tried some of my yogurt, you would like it. I've been practicing my Dr. Mario. I played online the other day, but failed miserably! But one of these days, one of these days...

I'm sad that Rose and Blanche didn't take part in your clip show. I wonder if they ever play Dr. Mario? Betcha Ma would be pretty good. But I'd be a little scared to see what Blanche might dress up as for Halloween. She can be a little scandaloso... Thanks for the updates!

Abram, it's true. You are better than me at Scramble now. I'm not sure how that happened but I have reluctantly accepted it. I'll keep trying though!

Brady, I'm afraid to try your yogurt because even though you're an amazing cook, I just don't like yogurt and I'm afraid I'll offend you if I don't like it! Trust me, it will have no reflection on your cooking skills.

Jessica, I can't wait to play you next time you're in Michigan!

I'm sort of the same way with yogurt, although lately I can take it with a lot of fruit and granola mixed in.

Fish don't fry in the kitchen.

I love Dr. Mario Elizabeth - except when the meanness is directed at me. I've got plenty of trash talk but no skills to back it up - so really, all is lost.
