I know I am usually late to the party with things like this, and you all may already know about this site, but I made the South Park version of me, and that is it above. South Park Erika, freakin' hilarious...
Look, it's South Park Jack Bauer!
Weird toe... The other day I was walking to the subway after work, and I saw the weirdest thing. You know how some of us, including me, have their second toe longer than their big toe? Well, I saw a lady wearing flip-flops and her second toe was shorter that her third toe! It was totally freaky! She was walking right in front of me, and I really really wanted to get a pic (that's what camera phones are for, right?), but being New Yorkers, we were all walking too fast and I couldn't get a shot. To her credit, she was completely comfortable with her freaky little toes, as her piggies were well manicured and painted a brilliant red.
South Park Buffy and Angel, hee!
Being sick... Last week I was sick. Some kind of random, summer flu. I had a fever of 101, achey, very tired, and eating was just not pleasant. But I wasn't pukey, and I didn't have a sore throat or the sniffles or anything like that. It was so hot that I didn't even realize that I had a fever the first day until after 5pm, when it started cooling down outside, and I was still burning hot. By the time the fever broke on friday, I was so weak from not eating anything more than a couple pieces of toast, that I didn't get to work at all. I walked a block and a half to get a plain slice of pizza, and needed a nap by the time I got home.
As awful as it was to be sick, I realized on my way home from work today, that I was so very happy to be feeling healthy again. In fact, even though I am in the middle of serious PMS, I was all cheery and smirky because I just felt so good. So, being sick is a really cool way to be grateful for how good I really do have it here on this planet. Hopefully the next time I am ailing away on the couch, I can look forward to being well instead of wishing I was dead.
Oh my god, I really am having a good time with this South Park thingy.
You all know I can't do a random post without mentioning Jericho. This is South Park Jake Green (played by the lovely Skeet Ulrich). Looks like even though the summer re-run ratings for Jericho are "better than expected", as Nina Tassler of CBS says, they are only pulling about 3 million viewers. The really good news? About 2/3 of the viewers are new watchers. I am taking that as a positive.
Hey! The Yankees are on a tear! Kickin' ass and takin' names. This last half of the season is gonna be so much fun! Hmmm, let's see if I can get me a South Park Derek Jeter...
As some of you already know, we had one hell of a storm here in New York City on Wednesday. We even had a tornado right here in Brooklyn. I woke up at 5am to one of the scariest thunderstorms I have experienced in a long time. The subways flooded, and it took me over three hours to get to work. Maybe I've been watching too much Jericho (not possible!), but I thought, if something really horrible happens in this city, sticking around is probably a bad idea. Too many people in a small area. So, my new plan. If something catastrophic happens here, and I happen to live through it, the first order of business is to run like hell! I will not be one of those jack-asses who decides to stay and 'defend my home'. It may take a couple of days, but I am so outta here.
One last one. Fran sent me her version. I give you South Park Fran:
Okay, this post was really just an excuse to play with the South Park character maker. You should really go and play.
