Re: Monday, May 5, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I wonder how well I might've played this board had I advanced: three of the categories were things I crammed for but have been jettisoned from my brain since losing in January. FJ was instaget, but for some reason I thought his first name was Harvey. Good thing it didn't call for the whole name! Con...

Re: Official Outchange Women's Tourney!

I'm sure the writers would try to go as gender neutral as possible in the hypothetical tourney, but I, for one, would love to see a few more stereotypically feminine categories (in regular play, too!). I mean, I never got the chance to run Tools, Baseball, Periodic Table AND Knitting, Fashion Blogs,...

Re: The Rankest Thread Imaginable

Can I change my "TOC SF" to "Decade Battler and Mustache Maker," please? I'd add my position in the Sisterhood, but that doesn't exist, right?

Re: Thursday, May 1, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Julia's going to be very busy with club meetings if she wins one more game. She's already the recording secretary of the Sisterhood of the--- Uh, of that conspiracy of women that still doesn't exist. Good save, Sarah! Hey, look over there! *runs away* As Social Secretary, I want to remind you of ou...

Official Outchange Women's Tourney!

Funny enough, I had suggested the idea of a all-gals tourney to Maggie (thinking it could be just one more way to get back on the show!), and she said she's floated the idea to the producers before, with no success as of yet. But let's do the heavy lifting (or is it rifting?) for them: who should be...

Mansplain. Word of the day! Is that anything like manscaping? Thankfully, no. And on the subject of the icon, I can't decide which of the others are more apt: the question mark? The flame? The radioactivity? I could make cogent arguments for each. But perhaps we are being provided with such importa...

(Wo)man, I walked into this party WAY too late! As a female AND a college professor, my official grade of the original post is an F...a WTF, that is. That is one serious stew of made-up words, sexism, and poor writing. (Then again, it's possible that my freakish female mind didn't understand it -- m...

She may hold the title, but she's not getting my tiara -- I bought that with my own damn winnings, and so can she! :).

Congrats to Julia -- I'm really rooting for her to go on an epic tear. Past Chu and onto Madden!!

Parker Posey will be playing Grace in the movie version. (James will play himself, 'cause he was actor-hot.) Julia looked like maybe she was outta outfits and threw on someone's scarf. I wonder if she thought she'd run the week? I ran out of new outfits after 4 shows, myself! She's a very likeable c...

Liberia was a country established by/for freed slaves as a way to "go back to Africa," regardless of their country of origin. What a GREAT idea! (Oh, wait...)

Re: Tuesday, April 22, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I liked Donna and our champ Julia, would've been happy with either winning. As a girl I might've subscribed to Vine Line -- I had Ryne Sandberg posters on my wall and an actual piece of ivy from the wall on my bulletin board, so that was an instaget.

You cheeky little monkeys! I'll get you a pic when I get home. It was an amazing b'day gift from my sister and friends. I have the best gal posse around (and we all got that Sally Hansen question from last night without chipping a nail).

Luckily for me, Alex gave me my nickname himself, and I now have it proudly emblazoned on a dressing gown. (It's not a silky one like wrestlers or boxers wear, but it's pretty close.)

Re: Monday, April 14, 2014 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Are we assuming, especially based on the visual reveal, that they would've accepted a drawing of the symbol as an answer? Hubs got it right away, and I'd like to think that I would've gotten it, too. Not that hard, given how few symbols we really use.
