Let them drink NyQuil

Lisa b got me addicted to finding out my 8th grade science score because I wanted to have Jeff Foxworthy hosting my brain matter while I use all my powers to resist the incredible urges to smack some lil' snot and pimple faced know-it-alls around.

But I scored a C - a 73% which incidentally was way better than my real life grade eight science score (or so I imagine - Dad, I'm sure you could confirm this for me).

Anyhow, I wanted to see if I concentrated super hard, didn't rush, and actually read the question and all the answers - AND I kicked butt.

JustSayHi - Science Quiz

Now I'm composing an email to Sister Mary Margaret to have my school records updated.

Because just maybe, oh maybe - this will be the thing that will just help me get into Harvard Law and show them all that I'm not a complete bimbo!

I'll show that silly ex Warner that my lifestyle isn't frivolous and might have been potentially detrimental to his political ambitions.

Oh wait, I've once again confused my life with that of a movie I saw when trapped in a small space.

In this case, the small space was an airplane (not to be confused with all the plethora of small spaces I've had the pleasure of being crammed in for either hiding or transportation purposes). I think that was the inflight movie when I was travelling to Dallas and because I flew there a bunch of times within a six week period, I had the torturous pleasure of seeing it three, possibly four times. Of course, it only happened once with audio for the entire duration. But still, I was surrounded by Elle and her aura.

Actually it was an okay movie but that is neither here nor there. There are only a few movies I can watch repeatedly - especially in a small space of time: Goodfellas, Surburbia, Ciao Manhattan, and Starship Troopers to name a few. Everyone has a couple, don't they? Kinda like a "if I was stranded on a deserted island" kinda list.

But I'm getting off topic.

What was my topic again? Oh riiiiiiight, I didn't really have one.

So did I mention I also took a quiz to figure out the odds that I'd eat my friends if caught in a blizzard? And I surprised myself by scoring only a 37%.

This surprised me because I usually size everyone up and have the "weak versus the strongest debate" at sighting of first snow flake. You know, because I like to be prepared.

Anyhow, it's Sunday night, I've still got a rotten cold that has left me with a voice so husky, I sound like a future Britney Spears if she never gives up smoking and looks like this. Sexy, n'est pas?

And I've obviously taken too much NyQuil. Hey remember Denis Leary's all-around-offensive Cure for Cancer album with the bit about Sonny and Claus von Bulow and NyQuil (wussy warning: nsfw - lots of f-bombs). That bit makes me laugh every single time. Yeah, NyQuil is trippy man.

I think I should stop this post right about now.

What IS it with Starship Troopers? I can't figure out why I watch it every.single.time it's on!!

Izzy said...

I've never seen Starship Troopers (am I missing out?) but Goodfellas is one of my all time faves and I loved Ciao Manhattan the one time I saw it a million years ago. And Suburbia is a classic. You HAVE to love it. But I must confess that I also am rather fond of Legally Blonde and it's second cousin, Clueless. Am a dork.

Enjoy your Nyquil. I always do :)

SciFi Dad said...

Yeah, I will watch Starshiop Troopers whenever I find it on... ditto for Legally Blonde, ironically. My other one is The Replacements (yes, Keanu Reeves and all... but really, Brooke Langdon was hot as a bar-owning cheerleader... before she played a MILF on FNL)

Heather said...

Hmmm. The only one of those movies I've seen is Goodfellas. I guess I'm not living the high life.

Thanks for the links to the quizzes. I'll have to check them out tonight. I'm a sucker for a cheesy online quiz.

Kyla said...

I can't take gives me the creepies and I lay in bed half-awake and half-asleep all night, probably twitching. But TheraFlu, that's some crazy stuff I can deal with.

I'm not a Starship Troopers fan. Its like a long commercial...with giant bugs. I can watch Moulin Rouge, Empire Records, and a few others endlessly, though.

crazymumma said...

I got 69% which for me is awesome. And I don't know if I'd eat my friends. Depends on how tasty they were.

Anyhow, saw I Am Legend last night. seen it yet?

Chicky Chicky Baby said...

I generally avoid Nyquil. If I wanted a trippy experience I'd go straight for the real stuff. Although these days I'd be happy with anything I could ingest.

Mayberry said...

OMG. I am dying (harhar) to know what kind of questions determine whether I will eat my friends in a blizzard. Incidentally, watch out because we have had 6 feet of snow so far this winter and it is still. freakin'. snowing.

something blue said...

You are more likely to eat your friends than I am by a whooping 2% but that's because I'm not a fast runner so I'm likely the first to be eaten.

Now your voice matches your hotness! Rrrow. Feel better!

kittenpie said...

Hmm. I'm 61% likely to eat my freidns, so watch you back if our next roadtrip goes pear-shaped, mama!

And I have to laugh - I get all crazy on cold meds, too. I can't even take Nyquil. Btu this reminds me a bit of my early Diclectin posts...

ewe are here said...

I'm terrified I'll discover I'd flunk 8th grade science... and whether or not I'd eat my friends... but i think I'll make my husband take the quizzes aloud.

heh heh

Jezer said...

I haven't had a good night's sleep in about a week, and that is enough to make me look like Brit's age-progressed pics right now. So, I think I'm gonna hit the Nyquil tonight. THanks for the suggestion!

Denguy said...

Yup. Starship Troopers. It's a weird violence-against-giant-insects-military-ignorance-humans-were-the-aggressors-but-I-watch-anyway movie.

Oh, and I had two errors in the science quiz. Stupid plant questions.

Mac and Cheese said...

I was forced to watch Dumb & Dumber while I was trapped on a ski bus. Not a good small space movie.

nomotherearth said...

i can watch any bad movie tha involves a makeover or a dance-off.

Lisa b said...

Hey hey CHEATER you can't do it twice.
Plus you matched my first time score and I TEACH science.
Show off.
You tell sister Mary!

Lisa b said...

oh and that Denis Leary album is one of my all time faves.
