This is Mr. "Who's Line is it Anyway", comedian Greg Proops, who came by the studio bright and early this morning. Look at how fancy he looks. He made us radio folk look pretty bad by comparison. He had to do, as he said, "Good Day Roseville." Catch him tonight (1/3) for his podcast, tomorrow (1/4), and Saturday (1/5) at the Punchline in the Howe 'Bout Arden shopping center.
This is a really cool deal that we are offering in Sac Perks. We have used a limo for other cool things in the past, like checking out a concert with friends. Why not see Christmas lights in a limo. You get a bunch of people together, split the difference and you can enjoy without getting lost. Maybe get your drink on? There are different packages, but one of them starts with a four hour limo ride for eight people, half off at $175. Check it out here.
Father of the year? I think not. This man wanted to go to the bar and get some beers. So, he couldn't get a babysitter. He decides to leave his baby at home because the pit bull is there, so he can go drink a six pack. Needless to say, the girlfriend was quite upset and was arrested for child neglect. You think! How about "brain neglect?" The baby was only 10 months old. Wow.
For those of you going to the fair, I've got a little gift for you. save 50% off on a margarita. This will come in handy, especially if you are going to one of the concerts out at the fair this year. Just print it out and enjoy!
If the sizzling summer heat is making you cranky and grumpy, you’re not alone. Studies show that heat and humidity are associated with folks becoming more aggressive, angry and violent, dammit! It’s harder to sleep when it’s hot, so we are tired and grumpy. And if we forget to keep the fluids coming in, we get dehydrated which also adds to the misery. Plus, being a sweaty mess doesn’t help anyone’s mood.
So stay cool - literally and figuratively. It can’t stay this hot forever. Right? Right?
Jewelry made out of cigarette butts? How about a guitar pick that was a cigarette butt in a previous life? Well a company with the fabulous name of Cigarette Butt Litter Dream Recycling, has begun collecting cigarette butts - no, cigarette filters are NOT biodegradable - into things like jewelry, vases, and guitar picks. Another company called TerraCycle has started offering free UPS shipping labels so folks can mail in butts they collect. The company then turns the butt into plastic pallets for industrial use. But these recycled butts are a small minority. A recent litter survey found that cigarettes were the single largest item littered on roadways, accounting for 38% of the total. So gross!! Yuck!!! And cigarette butts aren't just a disgusting form of littering. Cigarette filters are made with a plastic that can leach their toxic chemicals into the environment.
Here are a couple of ideas - QUIT SMOKING! And if you must, DON'T LITTER. I feel much better.......
In case you think you've seen it all, you haven't, until now. There's a store in London that is selling something called "Salt Made From Tears". Yep, pretty self explanatory, albeit weird. Human tears are supposedly boiled down, crystallized and rinsed in brine. And it gets weirder, because apparently not all types of tears taste the same. It depends on the conditions under which they were shed: sorrow, anger, and laughter tears have unique flavors, as do tears from chopping onions and sneezing (yuck).
Talk about your emotional eating....bon appe-tears!
JJust when you thought it was safe to take your sandwich out of the company lunchroom refrigerator comes a study that says the office lunchroom is teaming with germs! Yuck! Within the cesspool that is your office kitchen, the nastiest place is that sink! Think about it: dirty hands turn the faucet on, then freshly cleaned hands touch the grossness again to turn it off! If you steer clear of the sink, you’re still not out of danger. The microwave, vending machine and that refrigerator door are also covered in germs.
Which reminds me - I have no idea how I’m going to get my yogurt out of the refrigerator without a Haz Mat suit….
The next time my husband complains about how much clothing my daughters and I pack whenever we travel, I might just suggest to him that we take a Nakation. Yep – a clothing optional vacation destination! In fact, we could even kick things off by taking in the Nudist Clubhouse Nudist Expo in Las Vegas! Along with information about all kinds of all-nude resorts, apparently there will be clothing optional pool parties and grill outs at the expo (I hope the chefs wear aprons). Just think! No more worrying about accessorizing each outfit within an inch of its life! Nothing to pack besides a toothbrush!
All of which will either shut hubby up once and for all about my chronic over packing, or start him man-scaping in anticipation of our trip…..
If you thought all the stories about cows and methane gas were disturbing, you haven't seen - or heard, or smelled - anything! A new study claims that dinosaur burps and flatulence contributed to the greenhouse effect 200 million years ago! Research out of England claims that 570 million tons of methane came from dinosaurs. Yeah, suddenly the 100 tons of methane that today's livestock produce every year sounds positively pleasant. That having been said, warming from dinosaur gas back then is still dwarfed by today's human-made industrial carbon dioxide.
