I may or may not have played The Lying Down Game...
Have to get the pics off of the others’ cameras to prove it, but let’s just say that a jungle gym and a park bench were involved. And on our way out of the park a child was imitating what I had done on the jungle gym. So the game is now trending in Virginia Beach.

Banksy, the anonymous British street artist whose distinctive style of mischievous political graffiti adorns walls around the world from London to Palestine to Australia, doesn’t “do” interviews. The world’s most anonymous public figure has famously remained silent but for the statements he…
Thank you for flying with us today
I don’t do this on every flight but I do tend to do the following on smaller planes. When I board I thank the flight attendant for flying with us today, turning the tables on the phrase that they often use when passengers are deplaning. I did it again on the flight to Norfolk just now and the flight attendant was a little thrown because, as she pointed, no one had ever said that to her. She...
Go ahead laugh at us
Like airport security has never seen a woman taking pictures of a stuffed tiger checking the departure monitors. Ironically the TSA agent’s name was also Tony like the photogenic tiger. He thought it was really funny and asked if I’m making a documentary. I think the tigers may need their own blog soon. I didn’t mind the agent telling us that he and the other agent were laughing...

Four Guys and then Five Guys
We’re getting out early today for the holiday and one of my bosses has been dying to see the new king penguins at the Central Park Zoo so a bunch of us are going after work. I’m told that the penguins’ names are Will, Robert, Lyle and Slappy. I’m already loving Slappy. Just saying Slappy the Penguin makes me giggle. Afterwards, due to some non-adventurous eaters in the...

Back from The Press Box
In a neighborhood with more pubs than you can shake a stick at there’s always a different one to try. Tonight it was The Press Box which has been described in some reviews as a classy sports bar or a sports bar for adults. Personally except for several nice plasmas around the bar, it felt more laid back and pub-like than sporty. It was a good vibe, and not overly crowded so we could hang out...

Oh, how can I pass that up? ;)
jessibelboobstein replied to your post: Just call me Paulette Bunyan DAMN! I had a picture reply with a chick all up on a fake blue ox’s sac. Maybe thats why you don’t enable photo replies…it’s not as gross as it sounds.
Just call me Paulette Bunyan
Took down a small tree today with some rope, pruning shears and a handsaw. Now I just gotta find me a blue ox.
and reasonably alert from T5 at JFK. Jetting to MSY on a blue bird. Have a great day everybody!
I always do this when I have an early flight
It’s that awkward time when it’s almost too late to go to sleep cause I have to be up really insanely early but if I don’t try to nap I’ll be useless tomorrow. Bleeegh.
