It's All Trivial...

Hmmm, guess I took an impromptu bloggy break. Guess I was feeling overwhelmed. Or just whelmed. Because you DO know that whelmed and overwhelmed mean the same thing, right? You didn't know that? I'm not lying, it's true.

So the story of my life goes. I know countless bits of trivia and inconsequential flotsam. The only time I get to retrieve those pearls from the hallways of my brain and actually use them to impress anyone is either A. Blogging B. Trivial Pursuit or C. crossword puzzles.

Not exactly worthy of an award or national recognition, but whatever. At least it makes me a bit more interesting. Cocktail party conversation starters, maybe. Because I go to so many cocktail parties. Heh. I'm living the high life over here.

Other random bits to elighten:

  • do you know that the highest quality coffee comes from an arabica coffee bean, which is different than most coffee beans? It also has the lowest caffeine content as well. Don't believe me? Here you go.
  • Double points if you know what a hautboy is...
  • or that the "green fairy" highly alcoholic drink is absinthe...
  • last but not least, that bears don't actually hibernate!

So, we are back to blogging on a somewhat regular basis...



  1. You forgot to mention the best part about the coffee bean... that it's indigenous to ETHIOPIA!!! :) Woo hoo! And welcome back to a blogging world that I still have not jumped back into. :(

  2. Don't forget SCRABBLE! You always pull out random, seemingly made up words out on SCRABBLE!

  3. I too love random trivia! I pride myself particularly on knowing the names of all the plants and birds.. well, not ALL, but you know what I mean. MISS YOU

  4. Glad you are back, I was wondering what happened to you!

  5. Wow, I haven't played Trivial Pursuit in ages. (I'm pretty clueless about coffee, especially since I don't drink it :( Sorry.)

  6. My :( face got cut off at the end of the 2nd sentence...


C'mon, let's chat a bit...
