Top 10 things said by an incompetent phone actress

Inspired by a conversation about phone actresses at the Brass Tap, I bring you yet another Blather-Rinse-Repeat exclusive Top 10 List.

10) “That’s just sick.”

9) “Please tell me you’re in therapy.”

8 ) “What am I wearing? I don’t know. Pants. A shirt. Shoes.”

7) “Oh, yeah. I am hot. Really. Anonymous strangers telling me that they are turned on by women dressed in private school uniforms. I’m burnin’ up.”

6) “I’ve got a bad case of stomach cramps, so even if I just set the phone down; just keep talking.”

5) “Sorry, Reverend. We charge everyone full price.”

4) “Did I really need to know THAT?!?!?”

3) “No, I don’t have a webcam. Who wants to see a grown woman eat a bowl of ice cream? Are you THAT kinky?”

2) “You think THAT’S embarrassing. Try doing this for a living so much that the one time your Grandmother calls, you tell her you have to charge $2.99 a minute to talk to you.”

1) “What’s this about wanting me to pretend I’m Kari Byron and tell you I’m wearing nothing but silver body paint?!?!

I drank some Boilo at the St. Clair Halloween Parade

  For those of you familiar with this East Central Pennsylvanian hot alcohol steeped in spices, you may be also be aware that there are some dangerous versions of this beverage out there, too. I have had many versions of this. I even got a recipe for it as a wedding gift. However, I have officially had a very good batch of this very potent drink. The bad stuff should really only be served in self-defense or for topping off a gas tank when fuel prices get too high.

If you have no idea what I am talking about, that’s fine. This beverage was not in my vocabulary until I became a Pennsylvanian. While born & raised in Ohio, things are very simple there when it comes to food. You can order your food one of two ways: with or without salt. Here in PA, this area is piled high with traditions, including culinary ones. One trip to a BLOCK PARTY and you can find yourself waist-high in halupkies, halushkie, bleenies, kiebasi, bean soup, and many other things that you can eat but should probably chase with some Zantac.

 I also had some Tommy’s M & S Chili, too. That stuff is good, although I can only eat about 5 bites at a time. I have to take a break to give my tongue a rest from the peppery burn.

 God, I love Pennsylvania. You gotta love boilo recipes. Where else can you follow food directions that include phrases like “Be careful at this point or the boilo will explode.”

Christmas, Hannukah, & Qantas?

I recently heard on the local radio morning show that features a call out to a local car dealership something I thought was funny. The owner of the local car dealership was trying to acknowledge various faith’s holidays by mentioning Christmas, Hannukah, and (what sounded like) Qantas.

I am a fairly well-read person, but was not aware that the Australia airline company was celebrated as a holiday. I think I should ask my boss if we get Qantas off. =)

The only problem is that I wouldn’t know how to celebrate Qantas. I bet the decorations would include Koala bears and Eucalyptus leaves, though. I would also hope this would mean that other airlines would convert into holidays, too.

At least I would have a better idea how to decorate, for example, if the airline was Hooters. =)
