1. Today, Sid the Kid turns 20. Today, my awesome sister turns 35. She’s hot, too. (particularly in a Tina Fey kind of way). And 35 times funnier than me. If she and I ever put our heads together and wrote, we’d rule the world and Tina Fey would be our bitch.
2. An email:
Wow! Where do I start?? My email has BLOWN UP!!! My name is Arika and I’m the girl on Craigslist in the Steelers jersey! I found it so flattering that someone that doesn’t even know me (I don’t think) would make a fuss about getting my ad out there. I haven’t stopped answering ads all day and most of them mentioned that I came recommended- I had no clue what they were talking about until someone finally said it was on the Burgh Blog. But I think I owe you a huge thank you! So THANK YOU!!
Behold the power of The Burgh Blog. Mwah-hahahahah! Hey, at least I use my powers for good and not terrible terrible evil. Just a little evil.
A campaign called “sticker shock” is under way in Westmoreland County. Beer distributors are working with youth leaders to place warning stickers on cases of beer. The stickers are to remind people it is illegal for anyone under 21 to purchase beer. It is also illegal for anyone to provide alcohol to people under 21.
This is genius, because how many times does a 20-year-old with a fake ID buy some beer, pay for it, then as they’re walking out the door of the beer store, look down, spot a sticker on their beer that says that they cannot legally purchase or drink that beer, turn around, put the beer back on the counter, and go “Whoa! According to this sticker, I at the age of 20 with a fake ID cannot legally purchase this here beer. I am shocked. Shocked by that sticker! Do you want to call the cops or should I?”
4. Exactly where you thought Lukey would show up. A party for Maniac Magazine (on MySpace, so you might need to log in to see it). Maniac is billed as “a fashion, entertainment & lifestyle publication for the cutting edge sophisticate with a side that dares to have fun and question the rules!”
I don’t know about you, but when I think of Lukey I think “cutting-edge sophisticate” and “rule-questioner,” particularly those rules that have to do with “ethical spending” and “do I need an invite to show up here?”
5. Screw the falcons. Can we just unleash some hungry pelicans on the Burgh? (h/t Linda)
6. Lukey hasn’t said “move forward” in a frickin’ long time. Zober? Zober? Zober?
