This week I handed off the recorder to Ramsey to quiz the BCS.
Here are the questions.
1.) What 3 continental states border the Pacific Ocean?
2.) What is the famous ground hog’s name?
SCROLL DOWN FOR ANSWERS
Alaska is not a continental state.
That cute little guy? Punxsutawney Phil. He emerged from his burrow on Gobbler’s Knob early Saturday morning, Feb. 2, 2013, and did not see his shadow.. meaning it shouldn’t be 50 degrees right now.
He also made a guest appearance in Groundhog Day.. and the Oprah Winfrey Show back in ’95.
If you’ve got 55 bucks, you can even buy him in bean bag form!
As for the other guy – your guess is as good as mine.
How did you do?!
Maybe it’s because no one wants to date a poller.. but every Valentine’s day there a bunch of useless surveys.
BUT – in the age old atm vs ut debate, here’s one you can use against the horns.
According to the cheating website Ashley Madison, Austin, TX comes in SECOND of top 10 least faithful cities in the US.

If you’re like me, even though warmer weather is right around the corner – you’re slow to let go of those sweaters.
I’m not really sure what I was looking for when I went out for my fashion find yesterday, but Merge boutique just set out all their spring stuff, and well, it was hard not to give in.
Looking for something really bright?! Merge has all your neons – yellow, pink, orange. And mint is an “it” color of the season, and that’s not in short supply either.
I went with a tied up orange and minty tank top ish blouse. It’s in that picture, but as my photography skills are awful, see a full pic below.
And if ever you’re thinking, MAN, where in the eff am I going to get a dark purple layering tank?! This place has every color you need – and then some.
I went with some kind of gray brown because it matched my awesome tennis shoe heels. Yes, I am obsessed with them right now.
Now compare all that with THIS.
One of the reasons I first discovered/fell in love with Merge, was because of their jewelry. That’s all the new stuff they JUST GOT IN! No matter the occasion, they’ve got some of the best jewelry in town.
I’m not a huge fan of big pieces – or SUPER blinged out stuff – and the great thing about Merge is they have the understated stuff for someone like me, and the rhinestone blang blang for someone more daring like my best friend Jessica.
Before I checked out, these are sitting right by the register. I oogle them every time I am in that store, so in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I finally broke down and bought some. In my mind, it completed my ensemble.
Here’s my friend Alan and I, rocking my new Merge swag.
Stop by and see them. You can find Merge on Harvey Road, next to Al’s in the TJ Maxx Shopping Center.
Don’t forget everything is UNDER $50!!!

Each week I go out and quiz the BCS.
Here are this week’s questions. How would you have done?!
1. What is the square root of 144?
2. What do the # of stripes on the American flag represent?
SCROLL DOWN FOR ANSWERS
2. Betsy Ross reported that she sewed the first American flag in May of 1776.
June 14, 1777 – to establish an official flag for the new nation, the Continental Congress issued the first Flag Act: “Resolved, That the flag of the United States be made of thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation.”
Today the flag consists of thirteen horizontal stripes, seven red alternating with 6 white. The stripes represent the original 13 colonies, the stars represent the 50 states of the Union. The colors of the flag are symbolic as well: Red symbolizes Hardiness and Valor, White symbolizes Purity and Innocence and Blue represents Vigilance, Perseverance and Justice.
I guess that’s where the colors were coming in..
Just started dating a girl about 3 weeks ago. With Valentines Day right around the corner, how should we go about this?!
I really like her, but we are still in the stages of getting to know each other. I don’t want her to think I’m moving too fast.
I have received so many different variations of THIS EMAIL.
Valentine’s Day is the biggest minefield of any new relationship. If you just started dating someone, I know your panicking about it.. and YOU SHOULD BE.
If this helps, here’s the majority opinion. In a new survey, 42% of people say you should ONLY do a vday dinner if you’ve been dating about 2 months.. 37% said you should wait until it’s been 3.
OVERALL, almost 80% of people say if you started dating someone in 2013, IT’S TOO SOON.
What do you think of this?
I would agree you probably shouldn’t put a bunch of pressure on a Valentine’s “dinner.” BUT, you definitely shouldn’t ignore the occasion either.
What would you do?!
