Short week this week for a few reasons. So I’m dipping into the “Pool of Princesses” for TGISF this week to make things easy on myself. Low hanging fruit, yada yada yada.
And while I don’t have the energy or the creativity to try to be coy with the identity of this week’s princess, Jamie Chung….
….I do still have to point out how hilarious I think I am with this week’s title and how perfect it would be if I was in the mood to be mysterious (even if I am the only one who thinks it’s funny).
And yes, I’d be happy to. Happy to Wang Chung, that is. You see, I’m using “wang” as a verb there, in reference to Jamie and…. You know what? Never mind.
But also, I will be linking some Wang Chung tonight, so get over it.
(also be glad I didn’t go with “Jamie Chung’s Doomsday Defense ” as the title because that would have taken way too long to explain the mixed references)
Jamie Chung first came to my attention in the horror flick Sorority Row (not a terrible flick, btw)….
Then of course, Sucker Punch…
Plus, she’s funny…sort of…
OK, fine. She’s funny by not being funny and having a sense of humour about it. But that’s funny enough when you look like she does.
More from her later, of course.
I Promised You Some Stories
Last week in a Vegas themed 25 Questions (Plus One), BallsofSteelandFury and myself told on ourselves somewhat. Then he stepped up and gave some details regarding his answers in last week’s TGISF. So I suppose it’s only fair that I do my part this week and fill in some blanks of my own. So, let’s do that….I guess. If I have to.
Going by the numbers in that post….
3) Have you ever stolen a mounted LVPD officer’s horse?
I explained this one in the comments of that post, but not completely. Many of my Vegas trips, though far from all, were centered around continuing education conferences for my profession, because one of the best conferences in the country is held annually in Las Vegas. At times during these events, I have also helped with hands on “labs” designed for the continuing education of “support staff”. One such lab was equine oriented. Thank you LVPD for letting me use your horse for demonstration purposes. Sorry about riding him off site for 10-15 minutes after the lab was over….technically without your permission (which sounds better than “You stole mah damn horse!!!! “, btw).
8) Have you ever been so happy about casino winnings that you bent your “companion” over the table and spanked him/her in full view of everyone?
This also happened during (or maybe after) a Vet Conference. I had made friends with a very special person who I learned had a talent for blackjack. When she told me this, I was skeptical so she said she’d prove it. Now, I was standing nearby, only watching her and not playing. But when she started cleaning up I became very….aroused. She was cutthroat. She didn’t win life changing money that day, but it was still more than I’ve ever seen anyone I’ve known win at blackjack. So yes, I was excited. And when she decided to quit after only a short time, I really did bend her over the table and spank her a little as she was standing up. She seemed to be OK with this behaviour based upon my answers to 16) and 17). And her winnings helped pay for a rather hedonistic day or two in Vegas.
22) Have you ever been accused of cheating at any casino game?
When she decided to quit, the pit boss who had come over and been watching, briefly accused her of counting cards (she probably was..not a big deal really) and me of signaling her (potentially a very big deal). FWIW, I totally was not. She didn’t need any help, especially not from me. Nothing came of it, and she was done playing anyway, so it was mostly a non-issue.
16) Have you ever been so tired and/or so drunk that you fell asleep in the suite Jacuzzi? and 17) Did you wake up, proceed to have sex in said Jacuzzi, and then order room service?
Same girl. Same day, in fact. Though technically, maybe the next day. Hedonism, ftw. I’ll presume 16) and 17) probably need no further explanation.
11) Have you ever crashed your car on (or around) the Hoover Dam because you weren’t paying close enough attention to traffic while receiving oral sex?
What can I say? Those switchbacks are a bitch. A few years ago, before I left Arizona and moved back east, I learned that the young lady I was dating at the time had never been to Las Vegas. So, we decided to drive up one weekend. On the way, I also learned she’d never seen the Hoover Dam. Soooooo…we diverted and drove across it so she could see it. Then we left. But as we were leaving she became somewhat amorous. Why she chose this particular time/place, I have no idea. Personally, the Hoover Dam has never done anything for me. But what Imma do? Say no? Yeah, right. The little accident in question involved no other vehicles, and was relatively low speed (thanks to traffic and the aforementioned switchbacks). But I did have to tell her she couldn’t do that anymore, at least not until we get back on a straightaway.
True to her nature, she made a “straightaway” joke in reference to my genitals. That ended up being a helluva weekend…
Sports Which Make You Too Sad To Wang Chung
The Saints hit the road to take on the Falcons last night. This is pretty much all you need to know….
To the Falcons’ credit, in spite of trying their best to fuck up the gift of a crashed Kamara (not to mention a host of other ‘Nawlins personnel losses, as well), they finally managed not to fuck it up.
Just barely. And not for a lack of trying. 20-17 Final

Ooooof….. Those eyes.
This Is The Part…
…Where I usually try to say something funny to wrap things up. Or philosophical. Or at least mildly clever. But this week I got nothing.
But here, have one last appropriate (maybe) Wang Chung tune…
Have a great weekend everyone.
