While I’m too busy not blogging about my myself, it’s a good thing someone else IS!

Announcing my debut on NPR’s featured Tacky Tourist Photos blog!

Also to be mentioned, I’ll be appearing on the Pongr advertising blog thanks to my fascination of American brands in foreign countries. Will link when ready.

Never a dull moment in Harrisonburg! Oh wait, are we talking about the Turkey Capital? The same place where Walmartin’ is a verb? So something indeed very exciting and slightly panicking happened while at home in the ‘burg for the Thanksgiving holidays. Contrary to popular belief, I was not cooking.

Turns out we had a suspected gas leak, so mother dearest called 911, and asked the operator specifically to NOT send trucks. So obviously she sent 4.

As they came blaring up our dead-end street, The Twin and I ran for cover, due to sheer mortification. The troops came in FULL gear (hats, oxygen tanks, masks, etc.) and rather disappointingly did not resemble anything that I had learned about firemen from the internets.

After it seemed improbable that the house was going to spontaneously combust from a gas leak, I took the opportunity to inquire if the firemen had slid down the pole for us. (No).

The house was eventually cleared by the firemen and gas guy. We are saved!!

In the latest installment of ‘Who’s Stalking Me Now?’.. search results from the Boston College Cycling Blog:

I’m not sure if I should be more disturbed that people are searching for cyclist porn, cycling butt or yours truly.

I can in no way be held accountable for this headline.

I’m a PC! And I’m in Times Square!

My PC spot says ‘I’m a PC.. and I do the Heisman.’ (please note the Heisman trophy behind me)

My PC profile on the Windows page.

Check out the banner ads too.

Can’t say it was ever a goal to have my face displayed on Times Square, but let’s check that one off the to-do list anyway..

CP: oh.my.god.
CP: i think being in times square is definitely on the path to world domination
CP: so you should just layer it into the plan
CP: we can use that for campaign ads later

DP: got my absentee ballot yesterday
DP: vote for me!!
CP: since i vote in MD i might write you in
CP: because i think obama is pretty safe there
