Radio Frustration

I am lucky enough to be living only 1 hour from my brother (at least for the next 2 months until he graduates college) so last night I went to meet him for a very nice dinner at Texas Roadhouse.

After dinner I dropped him off at his house around 8pm and started my drive home. As soon as I turned on the radio I heard a trivia question that I thought I knew the answer to...

I figured that I might as well give it a shot since I was going to be doing nothing but driving for the next hour or so. I dialed the number and of course got a busy signal many times. Then it would connect and ring and I'd get excited, but it would keep ringing for 2 minutes and then cut me off without anyone answering. I would give up for a few minutes and then they would air a wrong answer guess on the radio so I figured I'd give it one more try...this cycle continued for the ENTIRE 45 minutes that it took me to get home. I was on my street, on my last ditch attempt at getting through, when I hear "Hi do you have an answer for me!?" I got so excited!

So here was the question:
These can be sold in the office, at the store, on the street, almost anywhere, but they can't be sold online. What are they?

I hear "Hi do you have an answer for me?" and I say "Is it Girl Scout Cookies?" and she says "Yes it is Girl Scout Cookies!"
I was so excited!! I got through, and I had the right answer, and she proceeded to ask me my name and where I was calling from and I was so happy that my 45 minutes of calling wasn't in vain...
and then I heard this...

"You're actually the Tenth person to guess it right, but thanks for calling. *click*"

I feel totally robbed!

New Yawk City: Just Like I Pictured It!

This past weekend, one of my best friends and I went to NY City with my mom to celebrate my upcoming 25th birthday! We got tickets to a Broadway play, made a dinner reservation, bought tickets to a concert, and invited friends.

We drove 5 hours, we ate at Vegas Diner in Brooklyn, we bought our subway metro cards, and after only one "Oh F**k" mishap of realizing I forgot the camera battery at my grandparents' place and going back to get it, we started our amazing day's worth of an adventure.

So glad to have had time to visit with Lara and David for dinner that night. We shared some classic Manhattanite hours together over a scrumptious & expensive dinner and a show at the Bowery Ballroom. (Please note Lara's Manhattan-i-rific shoes!)

We walked that city like we'd been there before and knew where we were going. And we enjoyed every step of it.

A quick stop for pizza before our Broadway experience, and our NYC day was everything we'd hoped for!

Anyone who ever has an opportunity to see Catch Me If You Can on's worth every penny!!


I have been slacking. I admit it!

I promise to make it up to you by soon posting awesome pictures taken with the new camera on a weekend to remember....
