Friday Night Fun With The Family


Just check out that pizza! It’s one of my favorite pies EVER – Grimaldi’s. YUM!!! I met my cousins on Friday night for our monthly meet up sans kids. We gave our little ones to my in-laws so we didn’t have to worry about getting home at a decent hour. It’s a good thing we did because Bill and I didn’t walk in the door until 2AM!!


We tried a new one (for me) called Scene It. I… didn’t love it. In fact, I thought it was one of the worst games I’ve ever played. That’s mean to say I know – but the questions were either insanely easy or utterly impossible. No middle ground. The last question of the game – the deal breaker – the one that took home the prize was “Who was the killer in Nightmare on Elm Street?” Really? That’s a legitimate final round question? Are you freaking kidding me?  It was girls against boys and they just skipped around the board in a matter of minutes.

One crazy thing I learned that evening (and I really do believe the story) is about a back room that exists in a day spa in Flushing. For $35 you can go in the entire day and take advantage of the amenities. A few of my cousins go on occasion just to wind down and have a quiet weekend afternoon.

Wellllllll, one of them said that his friend went into a back room (this gets pretty explicit so stop reading if you don’t want to go there… cause I’m going there) where a woman gets lowered down on a hammock onto a man (both naked naturally) and two other women spin her around him while she in this hammock (they too are naked). It’s like the rumor of the “happy ending” with a while new twist – pun intended!

WHAT?!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!! But I do believe it because the guy who did it is one of my cousin’s good work buddies and I don’t think he would lie. But isn’t that GROSS??? OMG!


When the night was over I drove one of my cousins home and she had to sit in my daughter’s car seat because we have no room in our back seat for an adult. LOL!!!

Always a good time.

  1. Ohh, that pizza looks good! We've played Scene It before, but I don't think we own it. Out favorite trivia game is on the Playstation 3 and it's called Buzz Quiz. I can usually kick butt at trivia games. 🙂 I can't even picture that “happy ending massage”… Goodness! Here in Boise, we are constantly having massage parlors cracked down on for prostitution rings! (Probably the same everywhere else, though…)

    I'm glad you had fun, you deserve it! 🙂

  2. We have two of the Scene It games – a Harry Potter version and a Pirates of the Caribbean one.

    I agree about the pizza – yumm. We are super lucky because there's an “authentic” Italian restaurant less than a block away with pizza just like that. Heaven!
