I thought Klingon is what happened when dryer sheets weren't used....my socks klingon my sweater.
The scary, scary bogeyman originated from the game of golf in the 19th century; he was an imaginary, but ever so skillful player named Colonel Boogey. He's also where the term "bogey", one shot over par, originated.

*snort* OMG! Ok..I have to share this....hoping the censors won't unplug me. Once a long time ago I asked my dad what his favorite flower was. Yes he said Tulips......it wasn't until many years later when my mother explained.....what he was actually talking about! Gotta love em for his sense of humor at the very least.
Ok...it's illegal for women to wear pants in Arizona....shhh...don't tell I break the law everyday!
If the continental US were a flat plain, devoid of topography and population, the point in which this plain would balance, both north/south and east/west would be in MO. Um, Arrowhead Stadium, I believe, to be exact...
Oooooh, ladies, you have hit upon one of the burdens of my life: the curse of useless information. I have heaps of it stored away in my noggin. My caffeine hasn't kicked in yet today, but here are some off the top of my head:
Canadian Terri Clark wasn't an American citizen when she first moved to Nashville, so she had to make her living at day labor. She sold cowboy boots (including a pair to Reba McEntire), painted houses, answered phones, waitressed, rubbed rice in a Chinese restaurant, and sang at Tootsie's Orchid Lounge (for $15 a day, plus tips). And here's another - before her first hit, she used to keep a shoelace tied around the neck of her guitar. She said it was from her days playing Tootsie's. The neighborhood then was so bad, she tied one end of the lace to her wrist, the other around her guitar, so she could set it down to take a break, and still keep someone from stealing her guitar.
Before John Anderson hit it big, he worked on the Grand Ole Opry - literally - as a roofer.
Garth Brooks used to play for food and tips at Shakey's Pizza here in Oklahoma City. He says Shakey's got the bad end of that deal, because they underestimated how much pizza he could eat!
The Dixie Chicks say that their most unusual early gig was in the deli section of a supermarket.
Blake Shelton was 17 and alone when he moved to Nashville - so young, adult friends had to co-sign to get his utilities turned on.
One of Faith Hill's earliest paying gigs was at a tobacco-spitting contest.
The Statler Brothers took their name from a box of tissues.
Diamond Rio took their name from a trucking company.
Doug Stone's real name is Doug Brooks. He changed the last name to avoid confusion with another then-newcomer, Garth Brooks.
Doug Supernaw gave up a career in professional golf to pursue music.
Suzy Bogguss plays 3 Taylor guitars - named Andy, Opie, and Aunt Bee. Her degree is in metalsmithing. She designs jewelry.
Crystal Gayle owns an upscale crystal and jewelry store called, "Crystals". She was the first artist to tour China.
Ann & Nancy received their first guitars as kids from their dad, to occupy them while they were home sick with mono.
Anne Murray gave up being a phys-ed teacher to sing.
Gretchen Wilson dropped out of school in the 8th grade to be bartender and co-manager of a local bar. She and her mom lived in rented trailer houses, from which they were regularly evicted for not paying rent.
I could go on and on and on. I told you - it's a curse!!
Who says size doesn't matter? To a shrimp it does...in a big way.
Where the hell am I going with this....
Oh yes, animal size and food; I get double points for this one.
Shrimp is sold by the number of them per pound - the higher the number the more shrimp per pound, the smaller the shrimp. For example on a bag of shrimp, a "45" would not be the number of shrimp in the bag, but the number of that size shrimp in a pound, and 45 shrimp in a pound would mean shrimpy shrimp.
I'm still thinking about the # of mice it takes to sustain a barn cat. What, did they feed the cat so many, then measure how many it took to just barely keep him alive? Then, how many to get him nice and fat? Were these cultivated mice, that they turned loose in the barn, or wild feral mice? Geez, I'll probably have nightmares about that tonight.
Mmmmmmm...Flavor Blasted Goldfish. The pizza flavored ones are my favorite. Gad, I love 'em!!
Kinda fits the pattern, huh, Gams? It's a wonder yours isn't about plants.
