Scalla sent me this, knowing that I would appreciate such an event. I damn near wet myself laughing. Fabulous idea!
That's not a religious figure enjoying a snack, that's a man with a Snuggie! (Screenshot from video on Snuggie's official site)"Blankets are okay, but they slip and slide, and when you need to reach for something, your hands are trapped inside," laments the TV commercial for the Snuggie--the blanket that comes with two arms. Never has "lying on the couch" been made so convenient as it has since the product's arrival on the market. And just when you thought you and your new best friend were relegated to the confines of your own home, an event slated to take place soon in Los Angeles can bring Snuggie-wearing booze-enthusiasts together, out in public.
The 2-Armed Blanket, Booze, & You: It's the Snuggie Pub Crawl
The SnuggiePubCrawl.com Team is hosting the first-ever Snuggie Pub Crawl here in our fair city. The "Team" is not affiliated with the blanket-makers, just very fond of, it would seem, drinking while covered--but not restricted--by a blanket. And why not? If at the very least, it will make for some fun photo ops of people assembled in cult-esque robes moving from bar to bar (think SantaCon).
They haven't set the date yet, but plans are underway. You can sign up to be a part of the cuddly insanity, and as they encourage, "even though it's just a blanket with sleeves, we're sure that you'll enjoy a winter evening spent drinking with friends and the Snuggie." Winters being what they are here, and the warming effects of alcohol considered, you might want to dress light under your Snuggie. Proceeds from the event are going to help care for orphans at the AC-Orphanage in Arusha, Tanzania, which rescues orphans from the streets of Tanzania whose parents have been victims of HIV and TB. Donations will go directly to providing food, clean water, clothing and schooling for these children. (Perhaps they could use Snuggies, too?)
In other news - the Kaufmans are having their baby boy right now! Sources tell me he will be named Alexander Warren Kaufman. I shall call him A-Dubs :)

What does Rambo do when we are gone? Run around? Try to jump on top of the fridge to get his treats? Steal my hair ties and hide them? I wish he'd lint roll his hair off the furniture and my clothes, or do the damn dishes.
When we get home, he is so tired. He either pops out from under the couch - eyes all red and sleepy, or we can't find him. Where is he? This only happens when the bed is made; He finds his way under the covers so he's just a lump on the bed under the blankets. FOUND YOU - LITTLE RASCAL FLATTS!

So here's a series of strange coincidence: As the Jane's Addiction song goes: "Been Caught Stealing, Once When I Was Five." I was five when I first got caught, weird! The next and last time I was caught stealing, I lifted a bunch of Jane's Addiction CDs (hmm...odd correlation).
Obviously, this was before I had the option to download from Napster or burn a copy of a friend's CD. I didn't get caught with the Jane's CDs though. No alarm went off, so I went back in and snagged a couple copies of a Mariah Carey release. The alarm went off, and I motioned at my friend to "GO, GO!" She peeled off in the yellow Volvo. (AKA...THE LEMON) We were some wack-ass fugees. Ooo La, La, La!
Moral of the story...you shouldn't steal -especially music, or orange Tic Tacs. That shiz will haunt you for life.

For some viewers Sunday in Arizona, Super Bowl XLIII was briefly XXX.
About 10 seconds of pornographic material interrupted the Arizona Cardinals' loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers for some Comcast cable customers watching Tucson's KVOA-TV telecast of the game, according to the Associated Press.
Apparently, only those Comcast subscribers watching the game in standard definition -- as opposed to high-def -- saw the inappropriate scoring drive.
Both KVOA, which said the telecast was clean when it left the station, and the cable company are conducting investigations, AP said.
