The Ped Egg. The TV ads make me want to puke, and yet I can’t change the channel! People on infomercials look so happy. More Stepford than happy, but still, it’s hilarious. Does anyone have one of these? If so, I want to hear about it. Warning: Do NOT watch the Ped Egg infomercial while eating. Seriously.
Also, Andy and I were flipping through the Village Voice, trying to find something fun to do for 4th of July, and we came across an ad for TruBlood. HUH? What? Have you heard about this stuff? I don’t think it’s real though. Apparently there’s a new HBO show called True Blood, and I guess this is their promo/gimmick thing. The website’s kind of funny. They describe blood types like wine, and you can take a quick quiz to find out what blood type would be to your liking. Good times for Vampire lovers.
And speaking of 4th of July, how was yours?
Here’s what happened to us, because we had the most ridiculous day ever. EVER!
*We decided to go to Staten Island to see the Staten Island Yankees (possibly the worst farm team ever). It’s very out of the way, and it was a bit rainy, so we hemmed-and-hawed about whether or not to go, but finally decided we really wanted to see a baseball game.
*We took the subway down to the ferry.
*Then we took the ferry across the Harbor to Staten Island.
*Then we walked up to the stadium… and the game was sold out! Nooooo!!!
*So we walked back to the ferry… and there were no more ferries back to Manhattan for 3 hours! Nooooo!!!
*We roamed the streets of Staten Island looking for a place to have dinner for an hour! Finally we got a table at a decent looking dive bar, which was fine until a couple of guys came in and started a brawl with the wait staff of the restaurant! It was crazy. They had to take it outside and were throwing punches for like 5 minutes. Finally the cops came to break it up.
Never a dull moment!
We made it back to Manhattan around 11 and went to a friends party to play Master Ball—don’t ask.
