FunTime Open Thread: Board Game Trivia

I’ve been feeling the urge to have some people over for a game night lately. I think as adults, we forget just how much fun it can be to sit around a table and just play a game. So, to help scratch this itch, or encourage me to get off my butt and invite some […]

Fun Time Open Thread: 12/13/11

Happy Tuesday, all! I’ve been sick this week, though I woke up today feeling almost human again, and I have medical terminology on the brain. How well do you really know the language that gets tossed around by doctors, pharmacists and advertisers?

Fun Time Open Thread: I Don’t Think We’re in Kansas Anymore

A lot of us are traveling this week. I, for one, am in West Virginia, which is a little surreal. It is fairly different from my super-convenient suburban lifestyle. It got me thinking about other strange and unusual places. Below is a list of fictional places. Can you identify what book, movie or television show […]

Fun Time Open Thread: My Favorite Bands

As much fun as it would be to make you guess my favorite bands with no hints whatsoever, I decided it would be even more fun if I gave you a little information to work with.  For each band, I have given you three song titles to help you along.  Some of them are popular, […]

Fun Time Open Thread: Word Ladders

How was your Tuesday?  It’s always been one of my favorite days of the week (this may or may not have something to do with the fact that Tuesday night always has the best TV).  Before you head into the comments, it’s word ladder time!

Funtime Open Thread: Three of a Kind

This is one of my favorite games.  Each of the groups below has one word that can link all three words in the group.  For instance, the common link for “Baseball, ring, kite” would be “diamond” (baseball diamond, diamond ring, and a diamond-shaped kite).

Funtime Open Thread: 9/6/11, Epic Theme Songs

Funtime Open Thread: 8/2

Hello lovelies!  I have been slightly obsessed with Words With Friends lately, which is an iPhone Scrabble-like app for those who don’t play, and so I have also been slightly obsessed with weird words. Along with my growing arsenal of two-letter words with high point-values (hello qi, ka, and jo), I found a list of […]
