On a non-awesome note...it was -1 today....................
That's about all I have to say really...more to come later. I see Roomie is holding the blog down - good job Roomster!
Oh yes, Piven, high mercury levels? Seriously?
Daily Variety is reporting that Jeremy Piven will abruptly end his run in Broadway’s “Speed-the-Plow” due to a high mercury count. Ummm, ok... but it seems I'm not the only skeptic. David Mamet, who wrote the showbiz satire had this to say:
“I talked to Jeremy on the phone, and he told me that he discovered that he had a very high level of mercury. So my understanding is that he is leaving show business to pursue a career as a thermometer.”
Regardless, it will be interesting to see who they get to step into the role. Word on the street is that Norbert Leo Butz, who I saw in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels alongside John Lithgow, will be his temporary replacement. Maybe my Entourage and I will go check him out.
Another good one: "Yeah, I would never fart in her face, that's disrespectful."
Poor JP just couldn't pull it out. He played a pretty good game, but when it came time to clinch, he just couldn't do it. Actually, he is one of the worst QBs under pressure that I've ever seen. Sorry Scott.
I had the pleasure (?) of being assigned to JP's press conference last night. He was like a piece of meat, but not in the good way. He was torn to shreds (thinking of pulled pork here). After multiple inquiries of why he didn't hand the ball to the CB behind him (JP fumbled on this play), he finally had to resort to "Next Question" - the first time I've heard that in my press conference attending experience. He also didn't make sense some of the time...but then again, I'm sure he didn't want to face anyone, especially media, after that last fumble. However, the fumbled play was supposedly not JP's fault. It was Coach Jauron's. Not sure which is worse actually. Sorry Scott.
I bantered with my bro quite a bit during the game. He started out excited when the Bills picked off Favre sometime in the 3rd...and then again when they took the lead. Sadly, that would be the last time he got excited that game. Sorry Scott.
I have attached a headline and story that sums up many's feelings on the Bills after last night -"Buffalo Bills are a joke and Losman is the punch line." Ouch. Sorry Scott.
In respect to my brother, I shall post a picture of him in happier times...when the Bills were 4-0 and the playoffs were not a matter of "if," but a mere "when."
I am truly sorry Scott.
We will be announcing the first Dave Matthews Band tour dates of 2009 on Monday, December 15, 2008. This tour will mark the first time that Dave Matthews Band will perform songs from forthcoming studio album due this spring. Warehouse members will have the first opportunity to request tickets for the spring shows. (Hint: I am a Warehouse member)
For $7 (from 11:30a.m. – 3:30p.m.) you get a salad, appetizer and entrée. The salad is small but the dressing is delish and my app of choice was the vegetarian spring roll – you get two little guys in a sweet chili sauce – yum! The entrée size is generous and I could have eaten those Drunken Noodles for days … well I guess I did. http://q2thainyc.com/menu.html
The outside of Q2 Thai is unassuming but once you enter the joint has a neon glow and modern vibe. If you are in the area (on 9th Ave btw 52nd & 53rd) stop in, the wait staff is friendly and the service is quick but the tasty food at a great value is what won me over. I'm pretty sure even the chairman would approve.
I would have to reply I could not tell you. I'm pretty sure my standing in -56 degree weather to watch an iffy Beatles cover band may have led to the crapiness I feel today. Also...since we have no food and I'm too broke (and lazy) to go get groceries, my lunch & dinner yesterday consisted of biscuits. That's right, biscuits. Some with butter, some with jelly, but all just the same. My sad attempt at veggie burgers didn't work, so just biscuits.
On a related note...donations to "Don't let Carly die of malnourishment" can be made out in my name.
If you're a Beatles nut like me, you may know that Monday, December 8th marks 28 years since John Lennon was killed here in NYC. There is a memorial in Central Park - Strawberry Fields - that fans go to celebrate his amazing contributions to music (duh Carly). You may remember that I went there my first week of moving here and radomly, there was a group singing Beatles tunes. There wasn't a specific occassion or event as to why they were playing...they were just playing to honor John. And for that, I love this City.
So...as Dec. 8th drew closer, I knew something would be going on in celebration of his life and music. Well my peeps, I found it:
John Lennon tribute concert will be held in Central Park Bandshell
A free tribute gig to John Lennon will take place in New York's Central Park. For The Love Of Lennon, organised by New Arts NYC, will commemorate the life of the music legend on December 7, the eve of the 28th anniversary of his tragic assassination.
The two-hour-long concert at the Central Park Bandshell will be led by professional musicians, encouraging fans to sing along to their favourite Beatles songs and pay homage to the icon.
Yah for New York to recognize. Yah for John Lennon for being awesome. Yah for me to be able to go. Yah.
Here I am checking on one of the many items we made, but for the blog's sake, lets say the Tofurky and Texas potatoes. I'm also holding up the Tofurky - the first time I've tried it. While it was nice to have "turkey" at Thanksgiving for the first time in three years...I did not love it. Nor did I love the gravy recipe that went with the Tofurky. Not so much. No recommendations coming from me.
The final Thanksgiving came down to this: Tofurky, stuffing, Texas potatoes, green bean casserole, Cope's corn, Heather's salad, cranberries and crescents. For dessert: Apple crisp with vanilla ice cream.
We ate our meal while watching "Miracle on 34th Street," a nice NYC holiday movie if I do say so myself. I realized while watching the movie and stuffing my face that my grandma Dorthy looked a lot like Maureen O'Day. Here's to hoping that I'll look like that as I age...and have her career....hmmm....
