We played mahjong last night. If you're unfamiliar, it's that Chinese game with all those clicking white tiles that you hear during the wee hours of the morning in many Chinese communities. Here's a tip for you beginners --- don't play it in the middle of the week you'll be a zombie for the following work day. Hoo boy was that addicting! We were just learning the game so we made up the rules as we went. Of course we could have looked up the rules but did we? No way! Where's the fun in that? And just to be clear, it wasn't just all MEN who played. It was funny how one of us (the most experienced in the game) conveniently remembered the rules at the opportune time. The evening was full of accusations.

"Cheather! You just made that up!"
"What? How did that happen?"
"That's my piece! I called it out first!"
"No! You didn't use the right Chinese word!"

      But behind all of those complaints, I think we all secretly had fun. Strange that we can still enjoy this ancient game. Who needs XBox when you've got Mahjong?

    I'm sure we will be playing mahjong in the very near future. But maybe next time we should read the manual. And maybe do it in the weekend --- like maybe --- Friday night! TGIF people!

  • My goal for 2016 was to lose just 10 pounds. Only 15 to go.
  • I ate salad for dinner! Mostly croutons & tomatoes. Really just one big, round crouton covered with tomato sauce. And cheese ...

    FINE! It was a pizza. I ate a pizza!!!

  • A recent study has found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer than men who mention it.

  • Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpeting to change the TV channel.

Videos of the week:

Vacuum Cleaner Won't Start
Mike of New York

Jennifer Aniston Security Tapes

A retired guy sits around the house all day so one day his wife says, “Joe, you could do something useful, like vacuum the house once a week." The guy gives it a moment’s thought and says: “Sure why not. Where’s the vacuum?" Half an hour later, the guy comes into the kitchen to get some coffee. His wife says, “I didn't hear the vacuum running, I thought you were going to do the vacuuming”? Exasperated, Joe answers,”The stupid thing is broken, it won't start. We need to buy a new one”. “Really”, she says, “show me - it worked fine the last time”. Watch the video and see what Joe did..
