For Shame, Family Feud.
As So You Think You Can Dance didn't record like it was SUPPOSED TO (*sob*) last night while I was playing poker with my mom, I wound up watching a bit of Family Feud while eating breakfast this morning.

Top 100 Answers For:

"What does a wife do in Vegas while her husband is gambling?"

Okay, I was too busy dropping my jaw in horror at the question in the first place to do my normal blurting out answers.

After the initial shock wore off, then my jaw continued going back down based on A) what answers were actually on the board and B) what people were yelling out.

Now, on the plus, 'playing slots/gambling' was the #3 answer. (Although the 'playing slots' pretty much tells you what most people think of women hitting the tables.)

What was #1? "Shopping" of course. Because that's what we women do, inside Vegas or out. We shop. We shop for shoes. We shop for clothes. ZOMG SHOPPING SQUEE.

But don't forget some of the things that weren't up there that people were absolutely shocked gave them an X/were shouted out to steal the board: Getting nails done, watching the kids, stealing husband's wallet.

So, since I can't really jump on a plane to Vegas and start interviewing married women and their activities, I can only speak for myself.

I hate shopping. Shopping can bite me. (Unless we're talking novel shopping, in which case, sign me up!) But gambling... Just give me a table of Blackjack, Three Card Poker, or Texas Hold 'Em! (Which, by the way, are games that my man does not play. He loves to watch me gamble... weirdly finds it sexy actually, but wants nothing much to do with it himself. Well, unless it's slot machines of video poker.)

So, there, Family Feud! Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Power and confidence! Never underestimate their sexiness. ^_~

... also, who the hell goes to Vegas to shop? Are there really great shops in Vegas? And _stealing husband's wallet_? Do they watch too many sitcoms? What era Family Feud is this? c.c;

Sadly, this was a recent episode of Feud, as the guy from Home Improvement was the host. But yes, the woman who shouted the wallet line out was the one with the button at the beginning. You know, where you rush to push the button and try to come up with the #1 answer so you can take the guessing board? She looked up at the board that Xed her as if it was on crack. *Shakes head* I really do wonder what era she's from.

As for shopping in Vegas... the only shopping I did when I was there was buy a couple of t-shirts. There is quite a bit of shopping to be had, but to be honest, a lot of that stuff is very touristy. (Like special dice, shirts from X place, shot glasses, etc.) I do recall a HUGE shopping mall in the middle of a hotel. But, yeah, my mom and I took a quick look around, bought a couple souvenirs, and then moved on.

Though, really, it wasn't so much the point that there isn't plenty to do in Vegas aside from gamble. Because there is. I spent a good part of the trip not at a table. But the initial idea that the husband shoos his wife off while he 'plays at the table with the boys' makes me very put off.

I don't think that the assumption is that he's shooing her off because he wants guy time. I think it's that she'll be bored while he's having guy time and thus will go off and do her own thing.

Admittedly, it still makes the assumption that gambling is a "guy thing," which probably doesn't improve it all that much.

*Nod* Both make sense for the scenario. But yes, alas, neither of them are a positive scenario.

You said 'Home Improvement' and I had to rush to check that they didn't let Tim Taylor be the host. @_@ And wow. That's a case of ones' brain not functioning in the clutch, huh?

Nod, I can see the souvenir thing and _some_ shopping, because it's a big city, but aiyah.

Maybe they should have guessed 'having sex with anonymous men'. You'd think that was the only thing people did in Vegas anyway, what with the commercials and all. ^_~

I love roulette. And Lee loves watching me play. Hm. Weird, that.
ifritah From: ifritah Date: July 28th, 2006 09:54 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hee! I've only played roulette once in my life. I was in Vegas, had a dollar, and went, "Oh, what the hell."

I can't recall the odds, but I bet on four numbers with a buck. So, I won whatever that is! It was rather cool... though I'll likely never play it again! ^_~

On the plus side, there's your next post for Hathor. LOL!
ifritah From: ifritah Date: July 28th, 2006 09:52 pm (UTC) (Link)

You know, I didn't even think about that. It does work rather well for the site though! Of course, I'm currently writing up an article to post on Sunday for John Tucker Must Die. Oh dear, choices choices.

Hrm, which one should I post first?
betacandy From: betacandy Date: July 28th, 2006 10:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh, John Tucker. :)

Done! It's all set up to show on Sunday!

You just mention me by "my man" and no link to my super cool empty livejournal? For shame!

Actually, I'm just a post whore at times and decided to say something today.
ifritah From: ifritah Date: August 3rd, 2006 07:51 pm (UTC) (Link)

I actually refer to you as "my man" more than pirateday quite often. So much, in fact, that people likely don't realize you're the same person. ^_~

I'm just being honest! You do belong to me. *Beams*
