I drink and I know things.


I do.

And I have the shirt to prove it.




People often say I’m a font of useless knowledge…

(Okay it’s just my husband who says that, and it’s usually to keep me from talking during  John Wayne movies)  But I do rock at Trivial Pursuit and no one will play with me anymore. So that means I’m going to have to share the ridiculous tidbits that fill my head my fun facts here.

With you.

On a regular basis.

Shall we begin?



That’s the spirit.

#1.  The first toilet ever seen on television was on Leave It To Beaver.




Why do I know this?

I don’t know…  I just do.


#2.  Dr. Seuss pronounced his name so it rhymed with rejoice.




Dr. Soice? Say it isn’t so!

But it is.

You’re welcome.

#3.  A leech has 32 brains.




32 brains?

That seems like serious overkill, seeing that most government officials can’t find their first.

#4.  The world’s widest road is the Monumental Axis in Brazil where 160 cars can drive side by side.


And you know that guy in the far left lane is still going to try and take that right hand exit 100 feet before the ramp.




#5.  Three Mile Island is only 2.5 miles long.

Clearly a man named it, as they all measure 6 inches incorrectly.




I think this goes without saying.

  1. As a a college graduate from a liberal arts university, I applaud your knowledge and your ability to drink. Those are what we strived to do then, and hope to keep doing in the future. Well done, my dear.

  2. He he. You sound like a fun drinker. There was a little bar across the street from our main college campus that had a trivia type game on a big screen during the day. I had a buddy who would sit there for hours and play. I could never answer any of them.

    1. I’m a delight. Just ask me, I know.
      We used to have a bar where we played trivia Thursday nights. It was in a college town and heavily sports laden, which is not my strength. Don’t ask me who scored 24 points in the NCAA championship game in 1994. I don’t know, and more importantly… don’t care.

  3. You need to start the RiverGirl Rocks & Record Setting Record Book to record all this amazing trivia.

    It’ll be like the Guiness Book of World Records but better. Because it will have rocks. And talking chickens. And other esoteria.

  4. Martin Van Buren was the 8th president of the United States. I know this from an episode of The Monkees. Van Buren was from Ohio and there is a shopping center named after him near where I used to live.

  5. Wow, I bet you’d be awesome to watch Jeopardy with. I love that show (alone of course) because my boys think it’s for old people. That’s when I tell them (yell) that type of trivia keeps your mind sharp and IM ONLY 49 YEARS OLD DAMMIT!!
    Martinis by the way are my adult beverage of choice extra, extra dirty, like my mind! 😎🍸🍸🍸🍸🍸🍸🍸

    1. I always thought I was awesome to watch Jeopardy with as well… but my husband disagreed and we haven’t seen it for at least 10 years.
      I have to say I’m not a huge olive/brine fan… so my martinis of choice are usually fruity vs salty. But either way, they rock.

  6. “32 brains….most government officials can’t find their first”? I didn’t know they were even looking.
    BTW, does your trivia pursuit reveal how many egos government officials have? I’m pretty sure the number that one g.o. (initials D.T.) has is infinite.

  7. I’ve heard the Leave It To Beaver trivia before… and as I recall, they only showed the inside of the tank, I think because the Beav was keeping a fish or some kind of pet in there. I’m pretty sure Archie Bunker was behind the first TV toilet… er, terlet flush, though…
