When Winter Storm Gail hit the tri-state area in mid-December, people joked with me that the storm would surely bring with it some Pink Snow — because it shared my name, and everyone knows how much I love anything pink. Well, surprise (or not) — while exploring the neighborhood on the morning after the storm, I actually encountered Pink Snow!
The mysterious pink slush (which is what it had become by this point in the day) was found at the intersection of Avenue B and 9th Street, adjacent to a highly-trafficked bodega. I have no idea where the pink color came from, but I am glad I was lucky enough to document it before it melted and swirled down into the sewer and out to sea!
For the past week, the Number One Search Phrase on the Worleygig.com stats page is “Paris Hilton in Gail” followed closely by “Paris Hilton and Gail” and is “Why is Paris Hilton in Gail” (why indeed?). When I first noticed this phenomenon I wondered to myself if Paris Hilton has a famous friend named Gail or if the populace had just gotten wind of a previous blog I posted about LA Rock band The Exies’ campaign to get that heiress of questionable mental capacity thrown in jail. Then I experienced an epiphany: obviously there is a whole population of morons with the knowledge of how to use Google who think that the word “jail” is spelled with a ‘g’ rather than a ‘j’! Exciting! Thanks to all you idiots out there for pumping up traffic to the site! Keep on keepin’ on!
My amazing pal Randy from Sony/Legacy Records, who is always sending me emails full of crazy stuff, sent me this link the other day, to a website where you can Create Your Own South Park Character.
I made a little South Park version of me (though they did not have an option for pink hair)! Anyway, this a really fun way to waste some time in the office or at home when you should be doing something much more productive.
