I remembered it too but made the mistake of taking the time to verify. Darn it.

Cl. Panic said...

Okay, Mr. NN. Time for some backroom justice after three days on the DL. Roll one of these for me!

The three of you better watch what you wish for. Christmas is just around the corner.

I found the perfect trophy.

oh no!!

I now have a mad crush on Panic.

Mr. Nonny Nu said...

"The plate is hand stamped with the name or phrase of your choice and affixed to the base."

and the phrase is: _____________________

Nonny Nu said...

I find the trophy choice quite disturbing.

Cl. Panic said...

Your trail shows are light grey, dark grey and white (with a little green new balance logo.

See!

stillman said...

Mmmm, yeah.

On the off chance that Panic erroneously identified TRAIL shoes instead of running shoes, I got to researchin'...

In my travels, I got to relive NN buying Mr. NN's skivvies at the sporting goods store. Oy.

Here's my running shoe submission.

Nonny Nu said...

Neither Cl. Panic nor Stillman is correct. I'm looking for running shoes with three colors, not trail shoes with three colors or ordinary sneakers with two colors.

Cl. Panic said...

Hmmm. Well, then these look like your trusty asics.

Many men are color blind, but it looks like blue, purple and white. But stillman will try to catch me on a periwinkle technicality.

Nonny Nu said...

Ah! Yes, those are my trusty Asics! Cute, aren't they? "Blue, purple, and white" are close enough for me.

Roll 'em!

Nonny Nu said...

What?! All that work for two measly points??? You're putting me out of business, Snakeye.

Snakeye said...

wait till you see my bill.

stillman said...

Damn you Panic. What, no assist on calling him out on the wrong sneaks?

Cl. Panic said...

Well Stillman, at least I only made one guess in my initial stab. Your pick only had two colors!

Cl. Panic said...

NN, you're toast if Snakeye bills for a new 0.1 for each roll!

Nonny Nu said...

What, no assist on calling him out on the wrong sneaks?
Maybe he'll share the two points with you--you can have one and he can keep one. HAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAA!!! This game is so wack, man.

Cl. Panic said...

True that, NN. It took two wins today just to make up for her initial win.

What's the Chinese idiom for one step forward + 2 steps back?

stillman said...

I was lured away from the contest by a hearty zin and tivo'd reality shows!

Sigh.

Cl. Panic said...

That's okay. I'm gunna be sore from some serious Wii action.

Nonny Nu said...

NN, you're toast if Snakeye bills for a new 0.1 for each roll!
I know! I guess I'll have to dig into my community property account to pay him off...

What's the Chinese idiom for one step forward + 2 steps back?
You don't want to know.

You know what? Between our three households (the Panics, the Stillmans, and the Nus), we have the Wii, the PS3, and the XBox 360!

Welcome back Man from U.N.C.L.E.!

Between our three households (the Panics, the Stillmans, and the Nus), we have the Wii, the PS3, and the XBox 360!

And I have a second Wii on the way. It was just so cute sitting there on Amazon.com that I had to take it home. So now I just need to find it a nice family...

stillman said...

I promise to let you visit it at my house.

Nonny Nu said...

Man from U.N.C.L.E. is correct!!! Folks that question took some digging. It wasn't googlable!

Question 41: What phrase is used to describe a route or destination that was expected to be fun but turns out to be a bad decision, and the result of which is being glared at?

A: Asking Stillman to share the bacon.

Cl. Panic said...

I'd go with MMD. Not sure about the glaring though. Except when you insult pandas!

Nonny Nu said...

Both are incorrect. The phrase is a place name and has to do with a holiday.

stillman said...

GGB Bataan-style death march.

Nonny Nu said...

Incorrect. Where's the holiday in that one?

stillman said...

July 4 Sanborn hostel extravaganza with bacon-less BLT from effing Blue Rock Shoot

Cl. Panic said...

Christmas Tree Lane

question #41 roll...

~~~

Nonny Nu said...

Christmas Tree Lane is correct!

MonkeyPig first referenced this on her trip to Oleta.
Here's the backstory. A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, MonkeyPig, Ca Loc, and Nonny Nu went on a road trip to Vegas. We drove Ca Loc's brand new Volvo. On the way home, MonkeyPig wanted to visit Christmas Tree Lane, which was described in her AAA Tour Book as a residential area where the residents have decorated all the trees like Christmas trees all year round. Ca Loc was against it from the start. She already allowed MonkeyPig to drive her car that day and wasn't even going to give in to yet another request from the two brats she was traveling with. Finally, she relented. What promised to be a lighthearted and festive excursion turned out to be a dirt and rock road (basically, off road) in the desert in Ca Loc's brand new car, culminating in a dead end with a few desert cacti "decorated" with paper plates. Ca Loc didn't say one word during the entire off road experience, but her eyes were blazing. When we finally got back to the highway, she immediately took the driving privileges away from MonkeyPig and sped off.

So that's the story of "Christmas Tree Lane." Whenever someone has a bright travel idea that turns sour, it is very appropriate to say, "Oh, this is Christmas Tree Lane all over again."

Nonny Nu said...

*sigh* This is like Christmas Tree Lane all over again...

Snakeye said...

Nonny Nu said...

There, there, Snakeye, I'll wash and blow dry your hair tonight and you'll look beautiful.

Nonny Nu said...

Look, people, sooner or later, someone will have to comment on my new perm. I'm just going to keep showing you my picture so someone better step up to the plate on this one.

*fluffs hair over each shoulder*

Mr. Nonny Nu said...

looks great.

Nonny Nu said...

Thank you. You want me to do your hair like that, too?

stillman said...

his back hair?

Cl. Panic said...

Thank you, snakeye. I 'perciate yer efforts.

stillman said...

suck up.

Cl. Panic said...

Coach nelson. On the Green Machine. (Shuffle!)

Nonny Nu said...

Correct!

stillman said...

Link please. Still cannot find.

Nonny Nu said...

Green Machine

Cl. Panic said...

Sorry Charlie, that's from up in my noggin. Remember the tagline next to my name on the front page of the blog?

If I remember, there's a picture of of NN's hand exposing the backside of a cute little green iPod shuffle that Coach Nelson lovingly personalized for NN with the phrase "Go, Goose, go!"

But i could be wrong. NN might have employed a hand model.

Cl. Panic said...

Play's closed.

At your leisure, snakeye. Think happy thoughts.

Mr. Nonny Nu said...

"his back hair?"

why don't you just bury me up to my neck, pour honey on my face, and agitate the fire ants? sadist!

stillman said...
