Saturday 9: Kick In The Head

  1. In the song, Dean sings, "Ain't That a Kick in the Head?" to express how delighted he is to discover the girl loves him. When was the last time you were pleasantly surprised?Pretzel burger
    * I was pleasantly surprised that the Wendy’s pretzel burger was pretty tasty.
  2. Martin was born Dino Paul Crochetti, and his family only spoke Italian at home. Do you speak any language other than English?
    * Sadly, no.
  3. Before he became an entertainer, Martin fought under the name "Kid Crochetti." Do you watch boxing? What about wrestling?
    * I’ve went through phases with wrestling and MMA… mainly to check out hot guys. I haven’t watched either for quite a while.
  4. This song appeared in the original Ocean's 11 (1960). That film was remade in 2001, with basically the same plot -- a group of suave criminals knock over the casinos on the Vegas Strip. Why do you think so many movies feature crooks and con men as heroes? 
    * In our subconscious there is a desire to be naughty or get revenge and get away with it. Many of us fantasize about exacting revenge, saying the just the right thing and getting away with it. The Ocean’s series is one of my favorites.
  5. 23132291Crazy Sam's (the author of this meme) college sweetheart took over his family's wholesale liquor business, married a woman named Helene and has two sons. How does she know this? She checked his Facebook page on the sly. Have you ever used the internet to look up an ex?
    * I have to block my ex and her family on Facebook because she’s psycho stalker who gets her jollies looking at what I post. I hear she uses our daughter’s profile to get around the block. I’m seriously considering de-friending my kids because of it. Chances are she’s reading this right now and will print it out to keep in her folder of things that offend her. It’s been FIVE years… Get a fucking hobby! 
  6. Bear MugAs she writes this week's meme, Sam is sipping from a Big Bang Theory cup that features  Sheldon's face and the word, "Bazinga!" Tell us about your favorite mug or water bottle.
    * My favorite mug is featured at right, I also have one with a New Yorker cartoon of a man laying on a therapists couch saying “You need to up my meds doc, I can still feel”.
  7. Are you a good judge of character?
    * Judging by the people I have invited into my life, I would say I’m a good judge of character 20% of the time.
  8. Do you know how to turn a somersault?
    * Yes, I understand the concept of how a somersault works.
  9. Which one do you use -- roll-on, stick or spray deodorant?
    * Do they still make roll-on? I use Old Spice stick.


  1. I had an especially toxic ex use Facebook and LinkedIn to contact me ... after DECADES. He insisted that we needed to see each other so he could apologize to me in person. Um, no we don't need to see each other. Not ever again. He did something very, very bad and owning up to it and apologizing would make him feel better, I get that. What he doesn't get is that reliving all that upsets me mightily.

    1. Was doing my best to ignore it... really. New information came my way recently that brought it back to the front of my thoughts.

  2. I've had to defriend my father and aunt on Facebook. I'm a little bit incendiary on there and by incendiary - I call Tea Party members Tea Baggers, after all it's the name they CHOSE for the themselves until they realized the sexual connotations of the word. Plus I call out bigots all the time, that includes over the immigration thing. I find it kind of odd that I have pictures of my great grandmother when she first emigrated to the U.S.

    My father cannot seem to grasp that a policy that embraces immigrants actually enhances the U.S. And that there was some pretty hateful shit done to Italian Americans, he feels that somehow gives them a pass. It doesn't.

    And my aunt - well she was just feeding the shit to my father. I warned her and then blocked her.

  3. Hey, I blocked my dad and uncle on FB, too. Kindreds! :\

    Love the mugs!
