Friday Trivia

I have to tell you that I had a great day yesterday. My husband called to tell me that the team I hate most in Formula One (and the team that is beating my beloved Ferrari this season) had been fined $ 100 MILLION DOLLARS. Oh, Behave! They have also been stripped of their championship points. Yeah!! As long as Ferrari scores 6 more points in tomorrow’s race than the third place team, they will have clinched the championship. If only The Great One was still around to enjoy another championship. Can you believe that they were fined that much? Sick money. The reason this team was fined was because they stole information from the Ferrari team that greatly improved their cars. Like I always say, cheaters never win. I also had a great day at work yesterday. After I left campus, I turned the radio up and had a Jerry Maguire moment, jamming and celebrating the success of the day. It really was just like that except for the fact that I was jamming to Copacabana instead of Free falling. Oh well. I really am getting old. Thursday night I was watching a special about The Ohio State Band (yes, it was on WOSU) and I found myself wishing aloud that I had been a member during my days there. I asked my husband if the band was now cool or I was just getting old. I think you can guess what he said…. OK, so maybe I wouldn’t have wanted to play an instrument. I would have wanted to be the baton twirler. The drum major? Is that what they call that person? I’m also sure I would have made an excellent Brutus! If only I could go back in time.

Anyhoo, on to the movie quote of the day. Hopefully I have convinced you not to cheat!


“I think all you need is a small taste of success, and you will find it suits you.”

OH MY GAAAAA. I totally didn't get that quote and that is one of my all time favorites. I'm Cusack's wife, he just doesn't know it yet. I LUUUUUVVVV him. This and "Sure Thing" got me started on my Cusack love affair.
