A Smorgasbord of Awesomeness

Monday, October 8, 2007

I apologize for not having more of a theme for today’s post, but think of it as a buffet of quirkiness. I also apologize for having been gone for more than a week, but I’ve been A) uninspired, and B) overcome by the magnetic urge I have to fill out Myspace surveys in bulk.

On my long trip home to Ohio last weekend, I stopped at a Maryland rest stop as was both appalled & amused to discover that Utz, D.C.’s potato chip company du jour, sells the following snack. Seriously, does anyone purchase these? Who says, "I’m hungry for spuds, but I’d also like seafood. This is perfect!"

Best vanity plate ever. Period.

I know it looks like I was peeping up this girl’s skirt, but really she was just standing on the escalator step above me. I took it so I could make some quip about not confusing leggings with a similar yet much more crucial article of clothing – pants – but when we got to the top of the escalator, the girl tripped a woman toting a rolling briefcase… & she face-planted so hard that she lost a shoe in the fall. I could still comment on this girl’s unforgivable decision to use leggings & pants interchangeably, but she’s way cooler now that she’s tripped someone in such a hardcore fashion.

There’s nothing particularly terrible about this guy, but doesn’t he just look insanely Scandinavian? I expected him to bust into Ace of Base just before he hopped off at Union Station.

Apparently this woman felt it’d be a fancy idea to tie her hair up with… more hair. I would be outstandingly unsurprised to discover a small family of bluebirds residing somewhere within this trainwreck of follicles. I wanted to hand her a hairtie to replace those braids with, but I was afraid her 'do would swallow the elastic into its abyss.


  1. On a recent trip to Columbus, I stopped at a gas station off I-71 in the middle of downtown. They were selling (I shit you not) "Rap Snacks: The official snack of Hip Hop" -- a collection of "rapper-based snacks" that featured Romeo, Yung Joc and Mr. G on the bag, and such inspiration sayings as "Stay in school" and "Reading is fundamental."




  2. OMG don't even hate on crab chips. They make the Maryland area what it is...GREAT! Once you've had them you'll thank me Kate.

  3. If crab chips are the best Maryland has to offer, I'm even more glad now than I was before to have moved the hell on out. ;)


Leave me some love.
