Tipper:  “Here’s my thought on what we should do with this whole Mason thing.”
Joy:  “Okay.”
Tipper:  “Once a week, we get some of my brother’s loser-ass friends to go over to Mason’s house, ring his doorbell, and when he answers they’re just gonna, BANG, junk punch him right up in his man business and then he’s gonna keel over.  While he’s writhing on the ground screaming, ‘Why?!’, they’ll go, ‘You know why!’ ”
Joy:  “Wow!  Did you just think of that?”
Tipper:  “No, I was thinking about it a lot on the way over.”

-Tipper and Joy McNally, What Happens in Vegas

Plinky Question of the Day

nnir_banner_plink

The Plinky Question of the Day is a weekly feature I added to the blog to get to know you guys better and vice versa.  Sometimes the questions will deal with books or reading but, most of the time they won’t.  Because, let’s face it, there’s more to us than what we read.

 

Sarcasm: Love it or leave it?

 

This one is super duper easy.

Love it

As long as it’s funny and not obnoxious.  Like such…

Sarcasm 2

 

What say you dear readers?  Love it or hate?

Tune in Tuesday


Tune in Tuesday

This weekly meme is hosted by Ginger at GReads and is meant to showcase another passion: music. Each week you can post an old or new song so that it gains more interest or is discovered by new ears.  So let's help Ginger spread our love of music.  Oh and don't forget to submit a link to your post over on Ginger's site by clicking on the banner.



I had forgotten how much variety I had in my music collection.  Thanks to my boyfriend, who so generously gave me the iPod Touch he was no longer using, I’ve been rediscovering tracks that I absolutely love but, completely forgot that I owned.  Here’s one of them.  On a side note, I’m dedicating this one to my Smashy Poo.


 


Artist:  DJ Dieselboy
Album:  Drum & Bass Selection USA
Track:  Everyday (Marvellous Cain and Bizzy B feat. Tempo O’Neil)

If you were an animal, what would you be?

 

This turned out to be a hard question to answer.  One, because I’m indecisive and two, because there’s a lot of them that I like.  After an internal back and forth I decided I’d want to be a…

It’s hard to resist picking the king (or queen) of the jungle, no?

 

How about you guys?  If you were an animal, what would you be?

Plinky Question of the Day

nnir_banner_plink

The Plinky Question of the Day is a weekly feature I added to the blog to get to know you guys better and vice versa.  Sometimes the questions will deal with books or reading but, most of the time they won’t.  Because, let’s face it, there’s more to us than what we read.

 

When was the last time you asked yourself, "What was I thinking?!"

 

This question was super easy to figure out.  The last time I asked myself, “What I was thinking?!” was when I decided to participate in Tough Mudder.  Here’s the description of the event from their website:

 

Tough Mudder events are hardcore 10-12 mile obstacle courses designed by British Special Forces to test your all around strength, stamina, mental grit, and camaraderie. As the leading company in the booming obstacle course industry, Tough Mudder has already challenged half a million inspiring participants worldwide and raised more than $2 million dollars for the Wounded Warrior Project. But Tough Mudder is more than an event, it’s a way of thinking. By running a Tough Mudder challenge, you’ll unlock a true sense of accomplishment, have a great time, and discover a camaraderie with your fellow participants that’s experienced all too rarely these days.

 

Hands down, it was the most terrifying and exciting thing I’ve ever done.  Here are some pics I managed to find.  If I can find the rest I’ll definitely be updating the post later.

Here Goes Nothing
Entering the obstacle known as the Arctic Enema
(it’s basically a huge, lined dumpster filled with water and a shit ton of ice)

 

Ice Bath
Exiting the Artic Enema
(That look on my face is the look of pain my friends)

 

Underwater Barrels
Getting ready to tackle the obstacle known as the Underwater Tunnels
(you basically need to dive under those barrels and make your way to the other side)

 

Are We There Yet
Coming out of the water after the Underwater Tunnels
(I do believe I was just starting to feel my body again after the Artic Enema)

 

We Made It!
We made it!  Barely!

 

There you have it.  Some visual proof of the last time I thought to myself, “What was I thinking?!”.

 

How about you guys?  When’s the last time you asked yourself, “What was I thinking?!”
