I have two anecdotes for you about the beloved game show. The first is not so interesting, but kind of funny to me and my family. My grandfather is a HUGE fan of the show. I'm anxious to discuss with him his feelings of the departure of Bob Barker. I am wondering how well he is going to like Drew... it may ruin the show for him.
When I was pregnant with my second born, I would watch The Price is Right every day. This was before the days of watching the Disney Channel, and Nick Jr.... I loved to call my grandfather and talk with him as we watched the show, or right after to talk about the contestants.
When I actually gave birth to my second daughter, we went in the hospital around 6am...watched the morning news show, and then whatever..The Price is Right...and as soon as that was over, we were in business... it was almost as if the announcer said "Come on Down!" and Lyanna did. We all think it's hilarious here...
The other thing that happened during that time was something I saw on one particular show. I don't know if anyone else happened to see it, or comment about it....but I thought I would pee my pants while watching it. *I was pregnant*
As usual a group of college kids was there. One of the guys was called down to the front. Every time he was asked to bid on an item he would give the same amount:
FOUR TWENTY!!! His friends were dying in their seats each time, laughing their assess off, the rest of the audience had no clue what was going on, and Bob definitely didn't. Knowing that the audience was totally clueless was funny enough...I kept wondering why no one took the kid off the air...but I guess no one at the show knew what was going on either...which made it even more funny..I sort of felt sorry for Bob, because it was kind of sad to see him being duped that way..... It was hilarious, I just wish the guy would have actually wond something and gotten on stage...that would have been GREAT!
"Gotta go with four twenty Bob..." "Bob, I gotta say four twenty..." "Sticking with four twenty this time Bob..."
That had to be, hands down, one of the funniest days of that show for me.
If you don't know about 4:20 here is the Wikipedia definition and a linky poo:
4:20 (cannabis culture)
4:20 or 4/20 (pronounced four-twenty) is a term used in North America as a discreet way to refer to the consumption of cannabis and, by extension, a way to identify oneself with cannabis culture. Phrases such as "420 friendly" sometimes appear in roommate advertisements, indicating that the current occupants are tolerant of cannabis users.

This is me in New Orleans, with a beer and a whole big bucket of crawdaddies! Yes, I am in the French Quarter and this was just moments before those little mud bugs were thrown into a big pot of boiling water with some seasoning, corn, and potatoes....tossed onto a plate, and then eaten by ME! Yummy for the tummy!
This was March 2003, hanging out in the Big Easy before leaving on our marriage/honeymoon cruise.....
Oh here's me sucking some head.

I am going to put up pictures of the birthday cake I made instead. It was a work of love and my first attempt at a blue horse, so give me a break. I think it actually turned out pretty good for a first attempt at so large a cake. It took 3 cake mixes to make this sucker.
Here is a picture of the Pony I used as my "model".
Here is my cake:
Cake when first cut to make horse shape
Parts that got wasted: I am on a diet....
We have color...the mane and face are added
And here is the finished product....what do you think?

I guess what immediately comes to mind when I hear or see the word "clue" is, of course, the board game. I spent many a rainy afternoon or late night playing this game with my friends and/or family. I liked being Professor Plum...I think because the piece was purple, and he looked smart on the picture....My mom was always Ms. Scarlett..wonder what that says about her personality? Wouldn't that be an interesting quiz type thingy. What does your favorite Clue piece say about you....hmmmmmmmm....
Looky what I found! I took the quiz and wouldn't you know it...I got Prof. Plum. Too freaking funny!
The other thing that comes to mind is Sherlock Holmes and my little brother Daniel. I am a crazy mad reader. I can NOT ever get enough to read, or enough time to read what I want. I like reading mysteries....good mysteries. I enjoy a nice Sherlock Holmes story. They make you think and most of the time they are a little bit creepy too. Daniel likes Sherlock Holmes stories too. He even went so far as to dress as Sherlock Holmes at Halloween once. I think....I have a picture of him dressed up....he also collects pipes. I wonder if his love of Sherlock Holmes led to his eccentric hobby
