My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

The Name Game

Thankfully it's not the annoying song - just Friday's Brain Bender.....


The names of six people are hidden in the sentences below. Can you find them? (The letters are in consecutive order.)

There always seems to be some obstacle to true happiness. No matter how hard you try, there are problems.


Well good Lord, that's not very cheerful. And I think it's a bullshit outlook on life to boot. Well, ignore the downer sentence and commence with the fun part. (What's wrong with those MENSA people pulling this crap on a Friday. Sheesh.)

The answers will be found in the comments later. Happy Friday!

Update: Well *that* was fun. The "official" answers were Al, Rue, Hap, Matt, Rob, and Em.

Between VW, SarahK, Rachel and Rave, y'all got all of them but Hal.

There were some interesting contenders - VW listed "Rear" (poor kid) and SarahK submitted "Piness." Yikes.

Tobe was a popular guess and Rave found Bo. (I personally like "Bo" better than "Rue" - but whatever. Nobody asked me...) Rachel was the only one to list "Em."

But the most creativity points (maybe he's related to Frank Zappa) goes to Ben from The Path Less Traveled who gave us this list: Heral, Terho, Ardy, Repro, Blem, Appines, Noma, Stac, and Meob. Heh. Nice to see you back, Ben.
