I Get the Point

Anyone who watches my blog, and who does, will notice that over the past few weeks I've offered points for pop culture references I make in my posts. What can I say? "Family Guy" is my favorite show, I even used to work for a website where all we did was explain the referecnes (RIP familyguyfiles.com). I also learned under the great television historian Robert Thomas of Syracuse's Center for the Study of Popular Television. We spent weeks at a time finding references and inside jokes in everything from "St. Elsewhere" to "Dynasty" to "Ferris Bueller" to "Mary Tyler Moore." I like referential humor.

A couple of people (3 to this point, I believe), have actually made guesses at some of the references, earning them points. But they also want to know what they can get for them, so I've devised this little system.

I mark it every time I make a reference, usually with a number in parentheses. If the reference is in the title, then the point value is stated in the first sentence. If you wish to play, search the blog for these point markers, then message me with your answers (it's easier to give individual attention that way, and you don't give away the answers to others). I will then message you back, noting your correct answers, and how many points you have. At any point, you can then message or comment back to me that you want to cash in your points, and for what.

Here are the point "prizes" I've thought up so far.

25 - I will say something complimentary about you in my next post, and on your blog as well.
50 - I will devote an entire blog post to you, and link you to it via your blog. It would be appreciated if when you cash in this option, you give me some parameters. If you don't, you're at my mercy, which can be a good thing.
75 - I will write one sentence that you request, verbatim, regardless of topic, the topic of the post it goes in, or the humiliation factor on my part.
95 - A picture of any part of my body you desire (may take a while, as I don't have a camera yet).
100 - I pimp your blog on up to 15 random blogs.
150 - I will perform the sexual act of your choosing (nothing gay), then write about it, with pics (may take a while, cause I still need a camera and a willing partner if necessary).

There will be more to come as I think of them. However, if you can find and correctly guess ALL the references to date (and by date, I mean the time and day that you send me your answers), I will do whatever you want, provided that it's not gay, and doesn't cost me money (and that includes asking me to do things on this site that would require me to get a pay membership).

Let the lame game begin!

In between the food, drinking, drugs, and basketball dominance, occasionally we hit the books.

Yeah...I saw the posts and the occasional plugs....I think I made a guess on something a while back. Now, I must apparently gain pop-culture knowledge to visit this blog...
