The Waiting Room Needs More Reading Material

I could just indulge my self-pity over Kentucky's unfortunate loss to WEST VIRGINIA!!, but I'll be more mature than that.
WEST VIRGINIA ?
Instead I shall offer you some nibbles of trivia to entertain your brains. WEST VIRGINIA?????


"The average man celebrating spring break has 18 drinks a day and the average woman has 10 drinks a day" - cited by the Detroit Free Press

Jon Gosselin and his girlfriend of two months have broken up!
Ironically, the local news just reported that oral sex may lead to brain and neck cancers.

I think I need to read The Curse of the Good Girl. Supposedly it will help me raise my very good daughter to be more assertive.

From Web MD:
There has been a 732% increase in computer-related injuries (tripping over wires, falling,et cetera.)

Both objective and self-reported stats say that the least happy states to live in are:
New York
Connecticut
New Jersey
Michigan
Indiana

The happiest states are:
Louisiana
Hawaii
Florida
Tennessee
Arizona

The Bic pen was originally the Bich pen, but too many people pronounced it as the bitch pen.

You will weigh less during a full moon. FYI: that's tomorrow - March 30. Get your scale out now.
WEST VIRGINIA????

Hmmm... are we talking iotas of ounces or pounds and pounds less??? I'll have to have some big proof to lure me onto the scales....

Come to North Carolina! We're touchin' Tennessee and just a state away from Florida, so that should make us pretty happy, right?

I believe that about the states...I cannot wait to get out of the northeast and head back south. And I hear ya on the Kentucky loss. Seriously. West Virginia??

Busy Bee Suz said...

I am glad to know I am living in a happy state.
You must be the ONLY happy person in your state. Poor you.

TN is also one of the states with the highest rates of prescription drug (ab)use. We love our 'scripts!

Sad year for my Lady Vols. And the men - one stinking point!!

Julie said...

Seriously did you glean all that wonderful info from a waiting room? Wow, that was a lot of crazy info!!!! What kind of waiting room where you in?

Jientje said...

I'm trying to loose some weight, so tomorrow will be a good day eh? Can't wait!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

You learned a lot. My waiting rooms don't have intersting tid bits like yours do. Stopping from SITS!

Betty said...

Good to know, I´ll be weighing myself tomorrow for sure! :)

Grandma J said...

I was happier in CA than TX, but then again I love mountains and oceans.

At least the Baylor ladies are still in the running, which is a good TX thing.

Beth said...

Okay ... I cackled out loud over the bich pen (which always earns an odd look or two) and had to share what had caused an outburst of laughter.

Still shaking my head over the leap between Jon Gosselin and ... never mind!

Should I be considered I've lived in THREE of the most unhappy states and only one of the happy ones? Might explain a few things...

Over from SITS!

Loved the funny facts. The books sounds like a good read.
