One day, two posts. Try and stop me.

Tonight's catering was easy & uneventful. It was at this place where many people make beautiful pottery, for some guy who wrote a book about pottery, "Kiln time throwin' pots" or something like that.
It was short and sweet. And, oh yeah-

I GOT TIPPED $150. One hundred and fifty dollars.

Seriously. For not much work. A little Asian man gave me the check. I had seen very little of this guy all night, but he must have thought I was super-caterer or something.

Normally tipping for these things goes like this: The service bill for one of us is usually around $120. We would normally get anywhere from $18-30 extra.

I hope he wasn't expecting sex. I didn't really understand what he said when he handed me the check, so...? God, maybe the hooker in me was showing again. Down Candi! Down!

Thank you, little guy. Even if you thought I was a prostitute. I love you.


Beyond that, I have a question for y'all to ponder.

What games (excluding sex, scrabble and cards) are good for two people to play? I'm dying for a board game, but "Sorry" sucks with two of us, and Pictionary just doesn't make sense at all.

Oh, and, we've already played "Cooties" to death.

You probably think I'm joking about that one, don't you?

A little help here? Don't make me drag out "Ants in the Pants"

A $150 tip?! I'm so jealous! What company do you work for and when can I get started?

My husband unit and I have played so many games of Scrabble that it has become somewhat of a game in itself. Sex or Scrabble? Well, Scrabble, obviouslyl. But seriously, we've played so many games of Scrabble in our 8 years together that we've gone from him whipping my ass each and every time to me whipping his ass quite a lot. And he's a Public Radio guy. And I'm a U of M English major gal. Know what I'm sayin'? We've played a lot of Scrabble, is what I'm sayin'. Let me know if you find that newfangled couples game. . . No cheeky joke here. Really.

Hubby and I are into yahtzee and Settlers of Catan. Settlers is probably better with a group, but we enjoy playing just the two of us a lot! And now you can afford a whole BUNCH of new games with your new moolah!

i recommend totally 80s trivial pursuit.

"I hope he wasn't expecting sex."


Lucky you for not having to comply.

The game we like to play when we're alone is "I'm getting on the internet, are you going to play video games? Okay, see you at ten."

Good for you! Bonus money is always good, even if they think you're a prostitute.

Operation is always a good one. They have several versions now. I'm not ashamed to say I have the original, Homer Simpson, and Spider Man version.

I do know how to spell obviously, obviously. I was drunk when I posted that.

Too bad 'Balderdash' is a game for at least 3 people (more fun with even more), I think you'd be excellent at it!

Before kids, my husband and I used to have wicked 'Yahtzee' matches every night before bed... Ahhhh, the good old days! That was long before the little hand-held electronic units came out (YAHTZEE, hand-held electronic units... Dirty mind WM!!!) Yahtzee is definitly WAAaaayy more fun the old fashioned way with the dice and the cup and the score pad. But beware, the loser has to DO whatever the winner wants... And now you can let that dirty mind go wild!

My husband and I own 15 different versions of Trivial Pursuit. Trivial Pursuit is always a good time. Skip-bo is a good one. Let's see....Canasta,Monopoly (if you have ALOT of time on your hands)...can you tell that we don't get out much?

Congrats on the tip.

Oh, and if you end up playing the Star Wars version of TP? When in doubt go with Grand Moff Tarkin. *laughs*

My husband hates playing Yahtzee with me, cause' I get so competitive. He just hates losing. Loser. (I bought the hand-held verson for this reason. then I always win!!!)

Also, Rumours- My Mr. is king of the Star Wars geeks. Seriously. He'd kick my ass at SW Trivial Pursuit. And, again, I hate losing...but I guess I could cheat.

I like butrfly's idea, but we do that a lot already. It's our favorite game.

I'm thinking regular or 80's Trivial (thanks Ms. C.), Yahtzee if he'll agree to it, Scrabble (AGAIN), or I may go all out and set up the badminton net. It's not a board game- but it's probably the best semi-professional sport EVER.
Where did I put my shuttlecock?

Any opf the DVD Trivial Pursuits are good. We have Pop Culture and SNL.

Or ... hide & seek!

Forgot to mention our other favorite game....

Go to the mall. Find a lovely spot to park our butts. People watch and play 'Name That Celebrity'... The rules are to pick people out of the crowd and whisper to one another which celebrity the poor unsuspecting shopper most resembles. We seldom remember celebrity names though, so the game sounds something like this:

"That guy from 'Cheers', you know the one... Norm!"


"That singer, the one that sings... Oh, I don't know the words but it goes (starts humming a completely off-key tune.)"

We laugh hysterically with one another but my husband cheats when he starts saying everyone, male or female looks like Oprah Winfrey.

Trivial Pursuit: The Eighties?

Whiskeymarie said...

Oh Margie-
The mall game sounds fun. I think me & my girl Blondie would be better at it than me & the Mr.
He would just keep asking, "why are we at the mall- just sitting? Can we go home and sit?"

our favorite game for two is hide the weinie.

Umm maybe you should give him a little sex for that kind of tip :)

I love Taboo...although I guess its not fun for two people.

Is this for you and Mr. WhiskeyMarie. Well there is always the aforementioned sex :)
