1. It’s a lung cheese kind of morning.
First, I would like to say, “You’re welcome,” for that fantastic mental imagery that is making your cheese danish look unsavory, but it does truly describe how sick I am today.
It could be worse. I could have used Woy’s choice phrase of “lung butter.”
I think mine sounds prettier. I’d rather look at cheese than butter.
Again, you’re welcome.
2. Two Random n’ats in a row here because 1. I’m sick and 2. It’s my blog and if I wanted I could post 40 Random n’ats in a row and watch my readership trickle away and 3. remember how I used to call these posts Random n@s and the guy who owns the trademark on n@ emailed me to ask me to stop? LOL.
3. If you do remember that, you have been reading me for a LONG time. Hugs.
4. Surely you’ve seen the new Eat n’ Park spokesgirl iJustine 2.0, by now. She looks like iJustine. And she talks like iJustine. And if she sees you make a sugar cookie with an icing smile on it, she will give you her own version of an icy smile and will report your ass to headquarters where their legal sharks will start chanting, “Fresh blood! Fresh blood!”
Where did I go. I think the DayQuil/NyQuil/Shiraz combination is wreaking havoc on my brain.
Last night while we were watching Sunday Night Football, an Eat n’ Park commercial came on and I was all, “BLOOP BLOOP BLOOP!” But as I was blooping, I saw a familiar face!
I also ran into Gina at the Women and Girl’s Foundation Women in Media Gala where she was supporting Miss Pennsylvania Teen USA 2010 Elena LaQuatra, who is also a sweetheart.
5. The Patriots got spanked by the Browns.
I bet I never write that sentence again as long as I live unless I’m talking about Madden 2012 or some weird football-themed fetish flick.
6. Speaking of the Patriots, the Pittsburgh Rugby Football Club is raffling off a pair of tickets to the Steelers/Patriots game to help cover the costs associated with the team’s trip to Nationals.
7. I bought my husband a vintage-type Joe Greene Steelers jersey for his birthday last month and as I look at it, I much prefer the old block numbers to the slick jersey numbers we have now. They should go back to that.
8. Here’s an interesting little graph from the Washington Post:
We have the highest percentage of college-educated Hispanics but the lowest percentage of Hispanics as a population.
Pittsburgh’s economic growth would be so much more robust if we had a higher immigrant population, so I’d love to see that 1% figure inch up a bit.
9. If you’re looking for a place to put your charitable holiday dollars this year, consider throwing some of them toward Burgh Baby’s Christmas Crazy fund! FOR THE KIDS.
10. Lung cheese.
