It's Carbs!
Jeanne Meowclane

Bread.Chips.Carbs.   Oprah is very adamant that if you join her diet cult, you can still eat it. She's actually so adamant about the carbs that she gets a bit crazy in the eyes.   I'm ALL for that.    But, I'm also just all for eating chips.    I will admit I've done my fair share of dieting and am still quite self-conscious about my body image and pretty much all that fun stuff that people talk about online about body confidence. I am definitely not body confident. I'm more like body meh. It keeps my insides inside.   But aside from that.

Trash Vortex of the World
Jeanne Meowclane

Have you ever wondered where all the filth and refuse that humanity would dump into the waters goes? Does it wash upon the shores of the other continents? Does it spend it's entire non-biodegradable life floating aimlessly through the the waterways for all eternity, only to be consumed by some marine life?   The concept of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is so intriguing and one that I'd looked into many times growing up.    I remember the first time that I ever really came to know of it was through a Stephen King short story. I was, and still am, obsessed with fiction literature of the horror and supernatural bent. I cut my teeth

it's Either Squirrels or a Hobo
Jeanne Meowclane

In fun personal facts, I recently moved back to my mom's house in a neighboring town. Commuting is not great but not the worst, and really, it's a test in me trying not to overspend because I don't have to pay rent.   One thing about this house. My mother has lived in this house for over 25 years with I'd say over a decade by herself. It's a two-story, multi bedroom house with a master bedroom (her bedroom) on the ground floor.   What does this mean? Well mainly that she rarely goes upstairs for anything because the only rooms up there are my old room, my sister's old room, and a creepy room that leads to a creepy attic. Who can blamer

He's Such a Hotsimodo
Jeanne Meowclane

I use this term pretty regularly to describe people. Or for when someone is describing a person they like to me.   Hotsimodo is a person who you think is hot, but maybe your best friend is like "I'm sorry, what? No, they're not attractive at all."   Example: Jeremy Renner. He is a hotsimodo. I think he's so sexy. My sister thinks he has a pug face.    You're probably reading this thinking, that's a stupid word. Well my coworker Monica at my previous job and life in Manhattan coined the term to describe people she was dating, and really it's pretty useful. I hope to further the use of the word until

Whatcha gonna do with all that trunk? All that Nellie inside my trunk?
JWarr

You may not know or care, but Eastwoods used to be my land.  Once upon a time there was a QM named, we'll call him Jim, who was assigned this bar and then got cast in the Broadway production of Breakin' 3: This Time It's Real and had to go away for four months. The bar was mine.  The land was prolific. The quizzers plentiful.  It was a magical land. Then Nellie came.  Now it's her problem.  I do miss y'all, but Nellie is clearly keeping you in good hands. Let's revisit some golden moments: - Y'all are strangely into Disney.  You're even more into Chewbaca singing Disney.  So that's a weird fetish. - White people clearly

Honestly Who Throws A Shoe!
Jeanne Meowclane

About 5 or so years ago, when I was living in Manhattan, a good friend and his brother came to visit and crash at my apartment before going off to Connecticut the next day. We met up with many of his friends who were residing or conveniently in the area as well.   At some point we ended up at one of those random Irish pubs that has that Irish script for its name at almost all “Irish” bars have.   We drank there for I’d say a couple of hours before things got hairy. We had all migrated from a table over to the bar since it was a weeknight and people tended to filter out and go home around 11pm. At midnight, the majority of these friends

You're Going the Wrong Way!
Jeanne Meowclane

Nothing makes you feel slightly better about your bad driving habits than seeing someone driving the wrong way on a one way street. I mean it's horrible, but man, does it make you feel kind of good when you and some of your cohorts are yelling at someone to turn around and all they do is look at you like you're crazy. Come man, you're going the wrong way. It's like that scene from Planes, Trains, and Automobiles where they think people are just being crazy yelling at them because they're going the way. "You're going the wrong way!!"   Then John Candy and Steve Martin turn momentarily into skeletons. It's awesome.   Teams?! The

Coldplay? More Like Lameplay.
Jeanne Meowclane

I remember in high school people exclaiming over this band that was “da shit.” I’d sit in my friends’ cars and listen to that Top 40 hit “Yellow” over and over again. Is that Coldplay? I think it was. Many times I contemplated swift escape out of a moving car just to get away.   Anyways, those bands man. Still don’t care for them. I think I actually gave a white guy I liked that album as a gift for Christmas once because I thought it would appeal to him. I don’t think it worked because I’m still single. Should have gone with a Dave Matthews Band album instead.   TEAMS!? Who Knew Quiz was

When In Doubt, Chug Off
Jeanne Meowclane

When in doubt and all else fails, a beer chugging contest is the answer to everything.   Can’t figure out who gets shotgun? Shotgun a beer. Fighting over who actually won Settlers of Catan? Beer chug. Need to figure out who picks up the check this time? Chug off. Got a dispute over property rights? Clear it up with a chug off. Got a nasty divorce proceeding? Maybe don’t have a chug off. Stay sober, and go to your appointment.   TEAMS?! The Breeding Brain Boners took home all the marbles after beating out We Drink and We Know Things in TWO TIEBREAKERS! Too Many Rabbits

Oh Car Oh Me O
Jeanne Meowclane

So long story short, I totaled my car a couple of weeks ago. It was very debilitating to the psyche, but I survived and minus the lingering bruises and stiff muscles, I'm alive, which is all that's truly important.   A new car? That's another story.   I didn't think that I was attached as I was to my other car which I had only bought two years prior after moving to Texas, but I was. I was very attached. As it was apparent after all I could think was, I really hope I can get my car fixed while crocodile tears poured silently down my cheeks.   Alas, it was not meant to be.    So,

A Ghost Story
Jeanne Meowclane

I used to have a job as a personal assistant to a celebrity and spent some of that time in Europe when they were doing stuff in Europe.   At one point, I was out in Provence at this beautiful villa getting things ready for them as they were to stay there for the summer.   Now, I was super excited. I spoke zero French but was happy to explore and experience this part of France I had never been to. After the first few nights, I was ready to leave.   Side note, I’m a person who wavers on the belief that there are ghosts out there and that ghosts don’t exist. But after the time I spent in that villa, I believe in the supernatural.   Now

To Sleep or Not To Sleep
Jeanne Meowclane

Have you ever thought you were being SO clever by buying the cheapest flight ever? No one will be on this flight. Hehehehehe....   And then you realize the reason it's so cheap is because it's at 6am.   This is what I contemplated last night. I got a wicked cheap flight up to NYC to see my lovely nephews this weekend for one of their birthdays. The trade off is, I have to get to the airport by 5am at the latest. Thus, bringing about the question, should I take a nap? Or just stay up the whole night?   Pros to staying up all night: Getting shit done! I can pack! I can watch

Never Shame a Shamer
Jeanne Meowclane

I understand that we are very much connected to our lives through devices. Trust me, I know. I know the feeling akin to claustrophobia when I get anxious and breathless after the realization that I’ve left my phone at home, have driven a mile away, and waver on should I turn back or just keep going and it’ll all be ok. More often than not, I make a quick u-turn and when I get my phone in hand I whisper “it’s ok, I’ll never leave you again,” like it’s some baby I left outside by accident. If that has never happened to you, you’re a liar.   Anyways, I understand.   What I don’t understand is when

Just Another Thirsty Thursday
Jeanne Meowclane

Last night was a bit surreal. I show up at quiz and the place is already packed. Why you ask? Because there were two large parties happening at the bar. One was a large group that I forgot immediately about because the other was the Young Republicans.   Needless to say, if you don’t know it yet, I’m a female Asian-American, and nothing has made me more aware of my own identities than the current climate in our country. So, it was a little disconcerting to see so many people wearing “Make America Great Again” caps and giant, bright red neckties. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a purist who is wholly against Republicans. I have family and

Tearing Out My Heart
Jeanne Meowclane

One of the bonus questions last night referenced Egyptian mummification of pharaohs. And no, the major organ they left behind was NOT a penis, although many fought me tooth and nail on that one. It was the thing that beats and pumps your blood. Again, not a penis.   After that quiz, I spent a solid two hours reading about canopic jars and mummification. I’m deathly afraid of death, but the ways that cultures dispose of their people’s remains still fascinates me. In Speech class in high school, I did a report on this very thing, from the graveyards of New Orleans to the mass, dried out, underground caves of some Latin cultures where the bodies just jerky up.

2017: The Return of the Resolutioners
Jeanne Meowclane

I will admit first off that I am definitely a resolutioner. I’ll say I’m going to be nicer to people, go to church more, and then bam it’s December and I’ve just flipped off a guy who cut me off in traffic and I’ll think, maybe I’ll get that one church attendance in at midnight mass with all the other Chreasters (who are Christmas/Easter attenders.)   But, it’s like I forget every year. I’ll go hit up the gym the 2nd day of January, and be completely shocked by the amount of people there. I shouldn’t be I mean really these people will be gone in a few months right? I’ll stand there (im)patiently and
