Why is this the $8000 question?

I am signed up to receive IMs from MillionaireIM whenever someone in the Who Wants to be a Millionaire? hot seat uses his/her audience lifeline. I was just IM’d this question:

Which of these is not a directional abbreviation that appears on a standard compass?

A: SSW
B: EES
C: WNW
D: ENE

Is it because it’s hard to remember what acronyms spell out to be when you’re in the hot seat, or because America is stupid?

I would be 100% more sympathetic if the game had a timed element to it, but you can take up the entire show thinking about the answer to the question if you really want to.

(I apologize in advance to anyone who doesn’t know the answer and thinks this is a hard question.)

LMAO

I’ve had a lot of great emails today, including ones from my favorite bloggers, but I’m going to have to say that my friend Jess (not a blogger) took the email cake home, ate it, threw it back up, and ate it again. She was writing me this nice tame message about getting together and spyware and how she never goes to visit our friends in the next state over but she should, tells me she’s tired because the two kids have warn her out, then she adds this little nugget at the very end:

OH, and PS. Does someone just enjoy shitting all over Roger and family? WTF? If they didn’t want him telling the truth, they shouldn’t have let him have any kind of blog in the first place. ARGHHHHH. I’m SO pissed for him. ARGH.

She may annoy me sometimes, but she has gems stored in that head of hers… And, just sos ya don’t think I’m waaay insensitive, I’m not laughing at what she has to say, cuz Roger’s family situation sucks elephant ass (remember?), but the way she says it is just pure comic genius gold.

How You Are In Love

You fall in love quickly and easily. And very often.

You give and take equally in relationships.

You tend to get very attached when you’re with someone. You want to see your love all the time.

You love your partner unconditionally and don’t try to make them change.

You stay in love for a long time, even if you aren’t loved back. When you fall, you fall hard.

I answered question 2 differently than I wanted to because I answered what Hay would like most but then the stupid quiz told me I was selfish, so I went back and answered it how my instinct told me to and then the quiz told me I’m exactly like Bdogg. :)

That was über dumb

This morning I took my bedtime pain killer instead of my daytime pain killer. I knew I did it shortly after swallowing, and I didn’t want to throw up the pills cuz that’d be a waste. I really should have just thrown them up, because trying to deal with work and Roger’s shit and other general shit while high on Tylenol with codeine royally sucks elephant ass.
