Not Born on the 4th of July

Thought of the Day: With the 4th of July holiday approaching I realized for the 6th straight year I have no plans. Every year I intend to have the best 4th ever and every year it's a flop. I live in Boston for Christ sake, one of the most patriotic cities on earth and I can't come away with a decent Independence Day? So for 5 minutes this morning I told myself I would have an amazing weekend no matter what...whatever it took, I didn't care. I would show my off my red, white and blue. 6 years of not getting into the spirit has got me down and left my friends calling me boring.

Then I realized a few things might stand in my way.

  1. Old Navy has already sold out of their $5 Fouth of July T-shirts that are MUST HAVE. If you are seen not wearing one on the 4th, then....pity on you.. you waste of an American!
  2. I don't have enough money for $2.85 per gallon gas that I'll need to fill my tank with in order to drive to New Hampshire to buy illegal fireworks. No sparklers on the 4th? No thanks.
  3. My roommate threw out this week's copy of the TV Guide that had the recipe for the Betty Crocker Stars and Stripes cake. You know the one with the strawberries, blueberries and Cool Whip, placed on top of yellow sheet cake in order to recreate the American flag? Without that recipe I just don't think I could pull it off...
  4. Boston Costume has already rented out their Paul Revere costume for the weekend. There goes my hopes of running around Fanuel hall screaming the "British are coming! The British are coming!," and luring everyone to into the Purple Shamrock for a [Long Island Iced] tea party.
  5. I have to work on Tuesday.

But, I am still open to suggestion. Where the party at?

Every Thug Need a Lady: I have always had a love for Pez. I collected them like action figures. When I was a kid I probably had just about all of them. I was never lucky enough to have the first edish ones from the 60's. But, about 2 years ago I was walking through a grocery store in Fort Myers when I saw the ultimate prize, Peppermint Patty from the Peanuts gang. I grabbed her quickly because I had never seen one before and started to look through the racks for her trustworthy sidekick, Marci. But, I guess they didn't manufacture a Marci Pez. That seemed crazy. I was all torn up about it and I wrote a letter to Pez hoping I would hear back from them with their explanation as to why Marci was nowhere to be found.

Dear Pez People,

I am writing about an important issue. It seems that when developing the Peanuts line of Pez dispensers you failed to recognize you had left a very important character behind, Marci. Do you not realize how important Marci is to the Peanuts collection? There can be NO Peppermint Patty without Marci. She is the Robin to Peppermint's Batman. She is the R2D2 to Peppermint's C3Po. They are role models to lesbians everywhere. They were instrumental in the evolution of submissive-dominant gay couples. I urge you to reconsider this decision and start processing on a Marci Pez immediately. Until then my Pep will wait patiently for Marci, with Princess Leia and Wonder Woman closely by her side.

2 Peas in a Podcast: If you have ITunes on your computer they are now allowing for you to hear podcasts for free. Don't know what a podcast is? Well they're very cool radio segments on just about any subject matter out there, updated daily. Podcast Central can also teach you a little bit about them as well. You can also, if you have the right equipment, upload your OWN podcasts just like you can upload imixes of your favorite tunes. I know what I am asking for for Christmas. I'll keep you posted.

...Don't forget, Stripsearch is on tonight at 10PM. Jelly-Belly should be sent back to Texas.
