As you are aware, the world is ending tonight and Pittsburgh will cease to exist as we know it, and if you’re so flexibly inclined, you may want to bend over and kiss your ass goodbye before your house collapses under the weight of the Great Destroyer Blizzard of Annihilation 2010.
As my mother said when she called me this morning, “Do you need to go to the store? Did you go to the store? I sent your father to the store if you need him to pick up anything for you. Do you need him to get you anything? Did you kiss your ass goodbye yet? I love you. God help us all. Stay strong.”
No, this is actually NOT another post about how hilarious Pittsburgh people act when hearing of approaching snow, and how the local media are all THIS IS A DISASTER OF ATOMIC PROPORTIONS WE’RE SEEING APPROACHING THE CITY OF PITTSBURGH. God bless Jeff Verszyla who remains calm at all times on twitter, simply informing his followers of how much snow they can expect, when and if they might want to alter travel plans, and also to chill the eff out. It’s winter.
The reason for this post is to let you know that while Las Velas is still open tonight for Happy Hour and regular dinner service, because my husband NEVER closes that restaurant for any reason other than holidays even if it means hiring a sled and a team of dogs to get him to town and then sleeping on the floor of his office, we do care about the safety of the Mariachi Band that is traveling from out of state. Therefore, Mariachi Night, which was supposed to be tonight will instead be TOMORROW night. Just in time for the snow to end and for you to be all, “I HAVE GOT TO GET OUT OF THIS HOUSE BEFORE I COOK MY PETS! WHY DIDN’T I GO TO THE GROCERY STORE?!”
So join me tomorrow night from 6-9 for Mariachi Night. I’ll be behind the bar while my husband tallies up the damage I do to his bottom line.
Also, you have got to go watch this video at KDKA to first, laugh your ass off at the video in general, but also to see that they interviewed a woman in front of the toilet paper display at Giant Eagle.
Why does the media only do this with snow storms? Why don’t they hit CVS during a spring downpour all, “As you can see, lots of folks in here buying umbrellas today and with more rain on the way, you can expect the galoshes supply to start running short.”
Or maybe during a heat wave, “As you can see, lot of folks in here stocking up on lip balm, sunglasses, and sunscreen in an effort to prevent themselves from bursting into flames. Ma’am? Ma’am? I can see you have thrown some SPF 30 lip balm into your cart there. Do you think that will be enough to stop your lips from crisping black and falling off of your face?”
Oh, hell. This became a weather post after all. See you tomorrow!
Sexy update: WTAE is LIVE BLOGGING THE SNOW STORM.
THEY ARE LIVE BLOGGING SNOW!
I CAN’T STOP SHOUTING BECAUSE OF HOW RIDICULOUS THIS IS!
Things really ramped up here; snow is now laying on the grass and starting to very lightly lay on interstates/state roads.
I also can’t stop laughing at how hilarious this is.
