The Fabulous Mr. Sparkle

I know it must seem sad that the majority of my blogs are all about my trivia team Mr Sparkle... but I have reason to be all braggy and proud this week... while we didn't exactly win this weeks skirmish, Mr Sparkle has indeed scored enough overall this month to be our Pubs representatives in the monthly inter-pub championships! I don't know where.. and I don't know when... but soon and, umm, somewhere Mr Sparkle will stand proud and hopefully not come last! Mr Sparkle for the WIIIIIIINNNNNN!

And subMonkey's favorite response!

Bless Seth and his little cotton socks!


Ok, it appears I am a little behind in regards to 'what's hot' in the world right now... but I've caught up and I totally love it!

The scary thing what subMonkey thought she saw!

Now, nudity does not scare me.. that is unless it is unexpected. Or gross.
subMonkey was awoken by her grumpy bear of a husband looking for his work pants very early one morning and in an attempt to help him out she got up to have a look around as well.
In the subMonkey house there is a very long central corridor. This corridor is dimly lit and almost all rooms run off it. As subMonkey, blear eyed and fuzzy headed from sleep was a-heading down this corridor she came across what appeared to be her room-mate wearing a t-shirt and no pants heading for the front door... subMonkey was frightened as her housemate began to turn to face her...
As it turns out, the banging of the bear man husband had also woken the housemate who, believing the banging to be coming from the front door with the potential of being a package delivery, had bounded from bed. In his own sleep addled state he had not been able to find his sweat-pants and instead of missing a delivery decided that he would wander in his skin colored jocks and use the front door as a modesty sheild to receive the delivery. Because of the dim light of the corridor and subMonkey's own fuzzy sleep brain she did not see the skin colored knickers and squealed a little a the scary thing what she thought she saw!
After that subMonkey had to go lie down for a while more and recover...

One Boring Monkey

So, yeah I missed last weeks Trivia night. I had more betterer things to do, OK! Instead I left the team in the more than capable hands of Mr's M and C, and Little Miss S.. who, as it turns out, are smarter when we aren't around. I bow to their super smarts and salute their victory. Of course, they have now established that Mr. Sparkle plays dirty, and will steal points from other teams... hey, it's all legal, and I have to say, I do like their style...

I have it on good authority though that this week Mr Sparkle may face their toughest opponent yet. We will see what happens.

As for the rest of my subMonkey existence, well, not much to report. I am still fighting with my landlord, 4 weeks, 2 days and counting and STILL no oven, I took them to the rental tribunal thingo last week, and looks like I am going to have to do it again this week, but I'm not too concerned, for once I'm in the right and we should get compensated by the courts... I'm thinking we probably won't get a lease renewal when this one expires.. just a tingle in my spidey sense.

Very proud of the Wallabies.. a malicious sense of satisfaction washed over me as I watched Sterling lay the smack down on Welshy number 15! Yeah, that was for our boy you took out BEEEEATCH! How you like them apples?! Although I gotta say I haven't seen so much blood in the sport as I have in this World Cup.. every game sees boys playing so hard and bleeding for their countries. Like Warriors. Scarily dedicated, sensuoulsy athletic warriors..

And there we have it.. time for bed!

Mr Sparkle for the WIIII.... what the? Fourth!

Sooo. Team Mr Sparkle took on some even tougher competition this week, and despite having one extra team mate we managed to come fourth. There was some discussion that maybe we had started too well, set our standard too high, that now the only place to go was down, or that the extra team player (Mr. C) had somehow managed to dumb us down, however I still had a great time and was more than pleased that we placed so well... I have also discovered one other thing about tuesday night parma and trivia, one whole parma is too much, one half parma is too little, next week I think I'll order a little something extra... or maybe drink more dinner..yeah, that sounds like a plan.

This week I've also had my hair chopped off, spoiled myself with a facial and started a fight with my landlord... so not a bad effort, given it's still only wednesday...

Anticipation is mounting...

Tuesday is fast approaching and as I sit here Urbaer is 'You Don't Know Jack'ing it up in training for Crazy Happy Pub Trivia night. So far team Mr Sparkle has expanded to a potential six members subMonkey and husband, Urbaer and Shazalulamae, Wordynerd and Crazy Carl... the best and brightest minds of our generation... or something. Of course, new members are always welcome, so drop me a line and I'll send you the details if you are interested.

And also, I stood in cat vomit today... it upset me, so I thought I should mention it. Enjoy!
