I Can't Believe Kym Guessed the Whole Thing

Kym, living up to her name, got the right answer to Lori’s Childhood Trivia Round 11 with Clue #2.

You may already know the answer as well.

In case you want to try yourself with one more clue, here it is:

The category is product.

  • Clue #1: one of the 7 deadly sins
  • Clue #2:
    C6H8O7(aq) + 3NaHCO3(aq) 3H2O(l) + 3CO2(g) + Na3C6H5O7(aq)
  • Clue #3: onomatopoeia

Surely these will trigger some memories.

(All I could find on this catch phrase is a remake. I can’t believe I ate the whooooole thing.)

(Another remake. Try it. You’ll liiiiike it.)

This is one I didn’t remember clearly, but it’s hilarious! (‘At’s a Spicy Meatball!)

Congrats to Kym for taking the intuitive leap to Alka Seltzer (thanks to her inner science geek), and thanks to everyone for indulging me in my trivial endeavors. Tune in next time!

Lori's Childhood Trivia Round 11

But first, a couple of announcements.

1. Make sure to enter the latest giveaway over at All Thumbs Reviews. This time it’s for Little LuLus — the epitome of sass (I’m wearing mine now).

2. My sister, Sheri, pulled a card for you yesterday as part of her Intuitive Tuesday series. Hop on over and see if you get any insight into one of your pressing issues.
Now for the main event…It’s time for another rousing round of Lori’s Childhood Trivia!

(Cue game show music.)

Welcome to the most nostalgic game show in this corner of the Internet. The rules are easy. Each day, I put out a new clue about something from the 1970s. One guess per person per day and no googling.

By entering a guess, you are eligible to grab the image below and add it to your bloggy bling. You can either copy the image and link to this hyperlink, or get the code here.

If you win, you get upgraded from Player bling to Winner bling (like Andy‘s). Groovy, man.


(Cue kettle drums.)

The category is product.

Clue #1: one of the 7 deadly sins

(Cue suspenseful music.)

Whaddaya say?

Well THAT was easy

That being this.

Here were the OTHER clues I was planning to use:

  • Plant (as in hanger)
  • Neck (as in necklace)
  • Waist (as in belt)
  • قرمة

That last one is Arabic for migramah, meaning “striped towel,” “ornamental fringe,” or “embroidered veil.” It has evolved into “macramé.”

So Andy wins again, with Martha earning honorable mention. Yay, Andy!

As a kid I made tons of owls like this one — image removed. (Well, not quite as nice.)


I received a package this week from Hecate May that contained To-Go Ware bamboo utensils and a Envirosax reusable shopping bag. I LOVE them! So beautiful and functional. Just like Hecate May (a/k/a Mrs Spock). Thanks!

And a mystery package arrived yesterday containing gourmet dark chocolate. No identifying information….anyone want to ‘fess up?

To my unknown benefactor, yummmmmmm. I am in theobroma heaven, and I bow down to you. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness.

Now I will try to solve the mystery.
