Raking the yard and cleaning the gutter and listening to Norry's show on Monday. Riveting radio. Talk of broken backs and chronic pain etc made me be extra careful on the ladder.

And his description of the classic game "Stratego" was hilarious. Not only did he, sort of, tell us how to play but went on and on about how he played "Stratego" by himself.  :o Yes, you heard me. Presumably as a kid Norry played "Stratego" by himself. "You can just set them up and, well you can't see them, but YOU CAN PLAY BY YOURSELF." Sad. Norry also was intrigued by Backgammon "what was that game on the back of a checker board, you play with dice?" but Norry has never played it. What is Norry's favorite phrase in Checkers, you ask: "KING ME!" (British guest replied that he hadn't heard that. Maybe because over there it is caused Draughts?) Norry also plays Chess against himself, again. On the computer. "If you want to win play on the first level," says Norry.
Norry: "remember that game Chutes and Ladders?"
Guest: "we call it Snakes and Ladders over here."
Norry: "Hahaha, that was a great game."
(Note this game is for pre-school and kindergarten kids mainly, takes no strategy, and can be frustratingly long when you get roped into playing it by youngsters because mind-numbingly boring.)

Thats why I thought Noory also liked to play CandyLand too. :)

Nobody mentioned "Yahtzee" on the show, we played that a lot with Monopoly when I was a kid.
Noory and one of the callers kept mentioning one of the old Monopoly pieces as the "boot" but it was just called the "shoe" elsewhere and has been replaced nowadays.

A later caller called in and asked about the game "Stratego." I don't know but he might have been a listener trolling Norry after Norry's earlier "explanation" of the game and extended commentary about playing the two-side strategy game "by himself."

Norry likely played Candyland, by himself, also and "loved it."

I think towards the end of the show an old lady caller mentioned that she liked to play "Yahtzee" but "couldn't play boardgames anymore due to her eye-sight." And the end of her brief call Norry said something like "start playing boardgames again -insert name-." I'm surprised he didn't offer to send her one of his unread guest's books also like he sometimes offers other blind people.

Games like Candyland and Mousetrap were games we all wanted as kids because they're very blingy (lots of stuff going on and eye appeal) but once we tried playing them the universal reaction was usually This is stupid!

Yep Mouse Trap had a great TV commercial that made every kid want one for Christmas or their birthday!
But once you got the contraption assembled and ran it a few times, the thrill was gone...
Same with something like "Operation"

The games that had lasting appeal were ones like Monopoly and Clue.

I also remember some Milton Bradley historical games like one set in WWI "Dogfight" with realistic tiny biplanes, one side Germans and the other side English. 
 


Also one called "Broadside" that had really detailed little sailing ships of various types like Frigates. There were so many tiny pieces it was easy to lose some of them or break parts off though.

Norry mentioned he loved "Operation," and he introduced it haltingly (likely as he googled or wikipedia) "you remember this game, uh, you take out and a buzzer..."Operation," I think." or something to that effect.) He likely never got bored with it and played by himself.

ps: anyone recall the 3M board games like "Executive Decision" ?

Norry DID creepily mention "spin the bottle" during the show. And "twister." Hardly games that he could, like others he mentioned that are meant to be multi, or at least two, person games that he "played alone."
"LMH, Numbers Lady, Katheryn Albrecht, wanna play "twister?" "How about spin the bottle?" I got some wine.....

Yes indeed, I think both of those games were a few of the last board games I bought, maybe in the mid 70s?

Another of those bookshelf games I had and enjoyed was "Acquire"


And yet another of those bookshelf games I had was "Twixt"

I wait awkwardly for hours to be called to dinner, forsaking my nap, milking a small snack, and then no one even comes to get me until they need a clean-up girl afterward.  Wow.  "Not hungry".

I wait all day for a paranormal radio show, and then the host rambles about days gone by, about something that has nothing to do with anything, some crap about "beautiful" bikini girls, I think in Hawaii, something to do with Trump.

All that man cave talk, just so he can present himself as verifiably a VIP who knew someone who knew someone.  I am not impressed.  My dad might not have been a VIP who ever knew "anyone",  but he sure as Hell was polite in mixed company.  In 35 years, he was nothing but respectful in the company of women.  I don't have a lot of great things to say about some relatives, but when I hear this host go off like a 14-year old boy in a locker room, I sure appreciate my biological male relatives a lot more.  They treated women (such as women listening in an audience) with dignity.  By not referring positively to salacious aspects of commercialized objectification of women.

Who were these beautiful woman?  Were like they like his "pretty AND fun" Elizabeth Montgomery, the actress who wrecked her marriage and left her children forsaken because she wanted sex with a different man, outside her marriage?  How "pretty AND fun" is that?  Ask the children, or the husband.  Oh wait, maybe he was referring to the character.  Well, of course.  What man, WHAT man wouldn't find a young woman in a belly dancing outfit "pretty AND fun".

Or were the bikini girls more like the "sexy demons" George called out for.  He said, "Send some.". How's that working out?  Are demons affecting his love life?  Of all people, you'd think a paranormal host would know better than to call out for demons.  Gross.  They're probably male in disguise!  I think, between himself and God, he needs to take back his call for demons.

And start respecting his female demogrpahic.  The bikini girls he referred to belong in their district, not in polite mixed company.  Wasn't it just a couple weeks ago he was mentioning (cringe) Hooters?  And it wasn't to do with the Las Vegas shooting.  He was just talking about (cringe) Hooters.

OMGoodness.

I thought he meant bikini girls for a Tropicana 100% fruit juice promo.

Uh, no.  That's not the Tropicana.

Looks like Tropicana bikini girl casino chips ($25) might pay off better than board games 25 years from now.

Every so often I like to research some claim from a caller and see if there is any merit to the conspiracy etc. "Kevin from Houston" the other night was going on about his relative "Crazy Lester" Pfister and it triggered that the name Pfister is somewhat famous. He went on though to say, in some kind of family conspiracy against him, that other relatives sold out to Dow-Monsanto for "$80 billion" and that he is trying to make a movie about him (not sure if it is someway to get back at relatives or "expose" the conspiracy or what. From what I can quickly see I don't see the $80 billion, though a part of the company was sold to DOW-Agro and he was famous for hybrid corn.

Polenta is great!  It's made from corn meal, which has corn gluten in it.  It's cheap and easy to pre-make, or you can buy it in rolls.  Either way, you slice and fry it and it's a wonderful "gluten-free" soft, warm carbohydrate.  It goes well with onions, garlic, and meat if you like, or just melted cheese, or marinara sauce (and of course, onions and garlic).  Next time you see an old bag of cornmeal, don't just think if cornbread!

Norry plays a longcut of "For Your Eyes Only" before Rosemary the other night. And then "After Midnight". Then stuff like:
"I've heard Santa was a mushroom." (Rosemary replies she never heard of this) Norry says "his shape, you know." (Ignoring the whole premise of the symbolism and the shamanistic theory.
And more great questions from Norry:

"Are angels really real?"

"Taking the Bible and religion out of it, what about the faaalleen angels?"
