Somehow I Don’t Think This Is What Brach’s Had In Mind…

Size is not actual.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Size is not actual. Big bummer.

I saw these Create-Your-Own Large Conversation Hearts when I was at the grocery store over the weekend and instantly knew I couldn’t pass it up.  It was to be my Valentine’s Day project. Darn things are way too small.  I couldn’t fit “I prefer chocolate over your penis any day of the week” on the “large” conversation hearts.  Looks like someone isn’t being truthful about size.

A New Place to Get a Hairdo.

Krispy Kutz ext

I was visiting family in Ohio over the holidays and saw my grandparents’ favorite diner was replaced with this barber shop.  Krispy Kutz.  (Yes, crispy with a “K” and cuts with a “Z.”  I’m shuddering, too.)  I did a double take – is it a donut shop?  A kids’ haircut place?  No, it’s a barber shop, for dudes.










‘Cuz I like my hair like I like my fries – crispy Krispy!

I Went to NYC and Took One Photo. Here it is.

Bush pruning in Soho - November, 2012

I was in New York City before Thanksgiving and you know how you bring a camera intending to take all these great pictures of architecture and winter in NYC and end up taking one random picture?  Yeah, well, this is mine.

Bush pruning in Soho - November, 2012

What can I say?  It amused me.  Somebody’s gotta keep 2.5 gajillion New York bushes manicured, er, pruned.  I’m no math wiz but I’m pretty sure there’s an extra number in there.  That, or a misplaced comma.  Either way, there’s no way you’re reading…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Oh, was I still talking?

I heart Boston!

Boston, MA March 23, 2012

I was in Boston last week for the Women in Comedy Festival (where I presented a workshop) and saw this on my way back to the hotel on the red line at the Charles/MGH stop.  I don’t know about you, but I’d sure like to see a Passenger Ass Stance.

A girl can dream

Taylor Kitsch pregnancy test

I was home sick this week, reading my People magazine, when I came across this interesting juxtaposition.  Oh, Tim Riggins, a girl can dream…

My dog loves McDonald’s ice cream

McDonald's Arch Card

My dog’s birthday is coming up in a few weeks.  He’s going to be nine.  What do you get the dog that has everything?

Answer: A McDonald’s arch card.

Yep, that’s right.  My dog loves McDonald’s ice cream sundaes (plain, no toppings).  Please understand that he doesn’t eat “people” food.  This is a special treat.  I don’t know how this came about, but my Mom discovered that he’s just wild about ice cream.  You can’t even say the word without him creating a massive drool puddle on the carpet (very Pavlov’s dog, indeed).

Hallmark has a good sense of humor.

Retirement and potty training

Those ladies at Hallmark sure must be fun at parties.  Putting the retirement cards next to the potty training and loss of tooth/teeth cards?  I mean, I guess it could technically be in the right place – it Depends. (See what I did there? Ha!)  Hooray!  You used the potty…just in time to retire and play golf.  Yay you!

The Guest Snuggie: But Wait, There’s More!

Similar, but mine was blue.

Like the majority of Americans, on occasion, I have trouble falling asleep.  Some nights, I can read a few pages of a book or Us Weekly and that does the trick.  Other nights, not so much.  Depending on the hour, I’ll get up and watch TV.  Not too much is on in the wee hours, except for infomercials.  The other night, I was up early or late, depending on your worldview, and watched a few infomercials.  I was surprised to see that, when you buy something, you get double or triple of it, at no additional cost!  Just pay shipping!  What happens if you only want one?  Can you tell the operator who is standing by that he/she can keep the extra items?  I only have so much space in my apartment!

The Brilliance of “Toddlers & Tiaras” – the City Bus Edition!

So Wednesday night is “Toddlers & Tiaras” night at my house.  You know, that show about toddler beauty queens and their whackadoo parents (not just Pageant Moms, there are Pageant Dads as well) on the TLC channel.  The LEARNING channel.  Riiiight.  So last night I was watching an episode that took place in the South.  The kids and their hair stylists kept saying “Jack it to Jesus!” and I had no idea what they were talking about, until one of the moms explained that “the higher the hair, the closer to Jesus (you are).”  I had NEVER heard that description before, but I guess it makes sense.  I mean, think about the 80s.  It was a simpler time, no?  Anyway, I was on riding the bus home after work tonight and couldn’t help but notice this:

Happy Thanksgiving!

CVS Beer Pong

Happy Thanksgiving! Hope everyone had their fill of turkey and family time. Please enjoy the following photos I took while visiting family in Ohio.

In case I’d forgotten that I was in a college town, CVS set me straight with their responsible endcap advertising. Know your audience, as I always say!

Speaking of “knowing your audience,” check out the holiday wrapping paper Penn State sent to alums after the Sandusky scandal.
