I am rarely a passenger in someone else's car. If I ever were, I wouldn't be paying attention to the driver's speedometer.

Have you ever trimmed or cut your own hair ?
So many times, I can't count.

No I wont be watching Super Bowl tomorrow. Got plans with a friend for the morning, then have to be at work at 4.
The fastest Ive ever driven was probably 90. that long stretch between Calif and Az, but the fastest Ive ever been a passenger in was above the speedomoter's capability, with someone many years ago, and the drive shaft fell out. Thankfully, somehow, miraculously, it came out rear part first or I wouldnt be here today to tell about this experience.
I usually trim my own hair and have done others', but about a month ago I finally opened let someone else do it. Surprise.
Brussels sprouts, of course! Warm with tons of melted butter sauce. Yummy!
Scotch tape? Heck we cant keep it around, the kids end up playing with it, lol.

Today's Question:
Who will be watching the Superbowl tomorrow ?


Heck yes! It finishes at about 4:00am Monday morning our time but I have money on the Cards so it's in my interests to! (And btw, just to clarify, I know the laws on sports betting are different in the US but it's legal here. No law-breaking for me. )

Will anyone be hosting or going to a SB party ?

Nah, unfortunately not. NFL is something of a minority sport here and with school the next day I can't be going into Birmingham for a party. There is one on but i'll be tired enough as it is.

Any special SB snacks you will be looking forward to ?

Hamburgers and potato chips in all their glory.


Bonus Question:
What is the fastest you have ever driven ?


About 95mph. I'm a bit of a lightweight.

What is the fastest speed a vehicle you have been a passenger in has gone?

Not including aeroplanes, 105mph in my dad's old car. Got that turbo doing its thing late one night on an empty motorway.


Extra Credit Question:
Have you ever trimmed or cut your own hair ?


Good Lord no, I get nervous enough when professionals cut my hair, never mind a cack-handed, mirror effort by me.

How about someone else's ?

Nope, never met anyone brave enough yet.


Just for fun :
Brussel Sprouts yay or nay


Yay! Especially good mashed with butter. Gets your insides moving too.

How many rolls of scotch tape are in your home ?

That must be another Yankism, I have no idea what the stuff is!
