I met a gin soaked, bar-room queen in memphis

1. nhl
2. moby dick
3. shangri-la
4. playboy
5. boris yeltsin
6. smith, johnson, jones, brown

song: what has 9 arms and sucks? def leopard! and the title of the song pour some sugar on me. also nice call on moby dick, kwh. didnt think anyone would get that, but it seems that those who come to this site read good books. and that is why no one got moby dick except on a guess. that book might be the worst classic ever, second only to war and peace.

so not much new in life. had some delicious margaritas with davide and LiL today. we're a family, only without a mom and dad, and only a little of the bad-touch. but i did manage to finally wrangle a job. its only temp work, but its still work, and im glad to be off mah ass. it has something to do with handling the actual birth certificates for everyone who has ever been born in new york. and some of the rules include: no cell phones, no bulky coats, no bags or purses, and we have to avert our eyes whenever we handle the certificates. so enough about me...onto the trivia!

1. what team called ebbets field their home till their last game there in 1957?

2. based on a 2004 government survey, what are the 5 most populace cities in the US?

3. how many votes from the electoral college does a candidate need to become US president?

4. what band's cd did spin magazine name the best album in the last 20 years?

5. what are the last four words of the orwell's classic 1984?

Love is like a bomb, baby, c'mon get it on

1. jacob
2. ethan
3. daniel
4. anthony
5. joseph

6. los angeles
7. costa rica
8. cosmo
9. kentucky
10. norma jean baker

and the song was the who - baba o'reily, nice call mary

so i hope everyone had a fun filled memorial day weekend. i spent the first half of the weekend cellphone-less because i gave it to LiL to use while she was in the a-t-l. so i'll send a lil "sorry :(" to davide and the capn for not returning their calls. but while LiL was away, there was copious amounts of boozin and profuse amounts of whorin. and at the end of it all, a fun picnic.

today me, LiL, and davide had a enchanting and wild trip to a dream world of magic.....staten island. he got measured for his tux and i got the low-down on my so-called "free" roundtrip tickets. now the tickets are in fact free. BUT they are only free if you stay in a hotel of their selection, and you must stay there for a minimum of 1 week. still, the price of the hotel is not terrible, and it does include a all-inclusive package to cancun, where i can become the next american to "dissappear". now onto the dreamworld of magic part. Davide was uneasy in staten island, as it did give off a weird sort of "waking up from a dream into another dream then waking up again" kind of feeling. also the look of the whole place was off. nyc and it's burroughs have a certain city feel, but not this burrough. no sir. LiL pointed out that it had a "ghetto-side of the beach" look to it all. which was a perfect description. so i have declared staten island no longer a burrough, and under davide's suggestion, have declared connecticut the fifth burrough.

so now for the trivia.

1. what was the first sport to cancel an entire season due to a dispute over salaries?

2. starbuck's coffee was named after a character in what book?

3. james hilton's novel "lost horizon" is set in what utopian community?

4. what magazine did shel silverstein write for before penning the children's novel "light in the attic"?

5. what russian leader was the first to be elected democratically?

6. according to a US census, what are the 4 most popular last names in the US?

ps- i might start posting more often, so you might want to check back in with a little more regularity. cause you might miss out on some trivia, and only dirty commies miss out on trivia.

pps- LiL, davide, and i saw colin ferrall in williamsburg when we were dropping davide off. later colin and i made a "home movie" and it will be available on the web in the next few days....enjoy.

The exodus is here, the happy ones are near, let's get together before we get much older.

the names of the ladies:
Emily, Emma, Madison, Abigail, Olivia, Isabella, Hannah, Samantha, Ava and Ashley.
and the song is bonnie tyler - holding out for a hero.

im glad yall have settled thing so amicibly. guns, tea and biscuits, ain't nothing more friendly than that.

so i've started tivo-ing cash cab, and they got some pretty good trivia questions. if you don't know what the show is. it's a game show thats filmed in a nyc cab and you answer trivia questions for money. you only get 3 strikes, then you get kicked to the curb (like all my ex-girlfriends). but if you can make it to your destination without missing 3 questions then you get a choice of taking your money and running, or doubling down and answering one video question. its a pretty cool show. i highly recommend it. so on last nights episode, this retarded midtown woman gets in and misses 3 of 5 questions. she missed "what instrument invented in the 1880s in hawaii is a smaller version of a guitar", AND she didn't know "what ron howard movie is also the name of the encasing that silkworms spin around themselves during metamorphosis". i honestly can't stand people this dumb. but i guess its more of a failure of our public school system.

so LiL is gone this weekend for hot-lanta, leaving me home alone for boozin and whorin. yay! so good tidings to her and a safe journey. now for the trivia!

now ill give you 5 of the top ten boys names, yall guess the other 5:
(and i'll even throw in the first letter of each name)

michael, joshua, matthew, christopher, andrew...
1. j...
2. e...
3. d...
4. a...
5. j...

6. what is the largest city in the US without an NFL team?

7. with no army, what eco-tourist country is the switzerland of south america?

8. for 32 years helen gurley brown was the editor for what fashion magazine?

9. what US state was lincoln born in?

10. before changing her name in 1936 what was marilyn monroe known as?

ps- remember everyone, just use your immense store of worthless facts. no internet searches, it is after all, merely blog trivia. good luck, have fun!

pps- ill give some props to whoever can get this weeks song

2. ringo starr
3. war of the worlds
4. the incredibles
5. lord of the rings: return of the king
6. chicago
7. pearl harbor

so ive thought about how i'll award points for the trivia. the person who answers first, gets the luxury of getting the most answers unfetter from seeing other answers, but answers after the first post will have more value and correcting wrong answers will have points too. i think this gives a fair shake for everyone, no matter when i post. if yall have any better ideas, please, post up.

7. the thing (1982)
8. night of the living dead (1968)
9. the texas chainsaw massacre (1974)
10. jaws (1975)

these are the years that the rest of the movies came out. good luck.
11. (1960)
12. (1973)
