She's a Loaded Gun in My Shaking Hand

This week's Saturday Scavenger Hunt word was chosen by Baby Bull. She picked the word clean.

Because I foolishly went out on Thursday night, I wasn't up for anything too crazy last night. I went to my friend K.'s house for a cookout. I made hummus and brought pitas. K. and her boyfriend grilled salmon and bacon wrapped asparagus and made tabouli and it was all so good.

K. is a huge Steelers fan and so, of course, named her dog Jerome after a certain football player. Jerome is very good at cleaning our plates after we're done eating.

After we were done eating, our friend Ashley brought over this cool life-sized (5'6") Playboy playmate puzzle from 1971. So, we pushed the table over and put it together on K.'s kitchen floor. If that isn't good clean fun on a Friday night, I don't know what is.

Sounds very wholesome...
Did the dog lick the puzzle clean too?

Tara said...

Ah puzzles. A happy, wholesome activity for all ages...or not. Hehe. Okay that puzzle might be a little more for the adults in the group, but still. Very fun to put a puzzle together.

My friend suggested I try hummus for a light snack, so I bought some at the store. Very tasty. You made some?

All I can think is that if that was from 1971, she is probably a granny by now.

I love dogs, especially labs, but I must admit, I'm slightly more attracted to the floor fun! Perhaps she could darken her hair?

Mrs. Hairy Woman said...

Sounds fantastic! I am working through this weekend (which I actualyl find I like better than working weekdays) then I notice they have given me Thursday-Sunday off next week...uh, okay!

Mr Atrocity said...

Wow, surely all those flesh coloured pieces must have made the whole thing very confusing? Or did you start from the nipples and work out from there?

Gyuss Baaltar said...

That puzzle is so awesome. What a great find.

Wow, I remember those old centerfolds. Barely more risque than what is found in every issue in Maxim today.

Gyuss Baaltar said...

...and if anyone else is curious, I did some diligent research.

That's Cathy Rowland, playmate of August 1971

To be a professional dancer or a dental assistant.

Men with mustaches, fireplaces.

Meat (I'm a vegetarian), people who talk too much or have bad tempers

I love cooking and keeping a comfortable atmosphere at home. I play piano but not often enough.

My dad is a fireman and my mother is a hairdresser.

I've done computer data entry, worked at the stock exchange and been a dancer.

I'd dig deeper into the sciences. I've always liked the idea of being a surgical assistant.

A musician, about 20, with a soft, low voice, a silent understanding of life and who can communicate with his eyes.

Lawyer Harry Weiss, because he helps liberals who shouldn't be in trouble with the law, and Jane Fonda, because she's just a great actress.

No meat, and very little chemically prepared food. A healthy body lead to a healthy mind.

Gyuss, you RULE for looking that stuff up. Seriously, hilarious!!

And oh my god, I wish there were pictures of you guys all sprawled across the puzzle putting it together. So fun! That sounds like a perfect Friday night.

I need to buy more puzzles! k.n

I didn't see that, but I didn't stay that late either.


It's really easy to make if you have a food processor.


I know. We talked about how old she must be now. Weird. I wonder what she looks like.


Ha ha. Yeah, the puzzle was a little more attractive.


Thanks. I guess when I say clean, I really mean dirty.


I figured you'd be really offended by a picture of a half-nekkid girl.


It sounds like perfect days off for the the 4th of July weekend. What are you two gonna do?

Mr Atrocity,

One of my friend thought he'd be too distracted by the nipples, so he worked on the face.


I can't even tell you how much I love it that you found all that info out on her. She is really that seventies. That's awesome.


I know, You would have loved it. I wish you still lived here.


You should. Let me know if you find any more life size Playboy Playmates from the 70's posters.
