Finger Art, Beach Boys and Charity Bike Rides

Hey-o all.  Hope you had a nice weekend.  If you missed Tosh.0’s stand up comedy special last night on Comedy Central at 10p, shame on you.  He is febreezing homeless people and giving advice to Katrina victims while standing awkwardly upright.  Truly great.

I went outlet shopping with a few of my friends last week and I came across this work of art in the Zales jewelry store.

In case you are wondering what you should be looking at, it is the alien nails growing out of that lady’s fingers.  And they are REAL.  I apologize for the lack luster picture, but her sugar daddy was hovering behind me and made me feel awkward about taking pictures of his baby’s hands.

This lady’s motto was go long and gross or go home with regards to fingernail growing.  She had BOTH sides of her nails painted because they were so thick.  Tell me that cashier has any idea what this lady is looking for.  How can you focus on sales while mesmerized by her nail growing technique?  What is this lady eating?  Pure human protein?  I hope she doesn’t spook easily, and she handles her nerves well.  She’d break a tooth gnawing on those nails.

Anyway.  Came across this facts generator the other day.  Pretty interesting way to kill the first 15 minutes at work when you’re really not fully awake yet.

Did you know Julia Childs was 6 feet 2 inches tall?!  The things you learn.

So quick plug:

My brother is totally awesome and is doing a bike ride for Charity at the end of this summer.  It’s called the California Coast Classic.  It is from Sept 17th thru the 24th and covers 525 miles in an attempt to raise money for the Arthritis Foundation.

Our dad is really big into cycling.  In fact, he blogged about his epic trip two summers ago from Seattle, Washington to Cape May, New Jersey.  This journey took him 65 days to complete and he raised over $60,000 for the Arthritis Foundation.  This year, he was named Chairman of the Board of Directors for the foundation and they even turned him into a bobble head.  Look:

So all in all, if you’re feeling charitably sound this day, by all means, put your monetary donations Caleb’s way.  Here is the link to donate:

Today’s music comes from the BEACH BOYS!  A classic feel good summer band that oddly enough is still performing shows!  Both my birthday and my dad’s birthday fall in the month of August.  And it just so happens that this year, right smack in the middle of our b-days, the Beach Boys are playing at Longwood Gardens!  We are “totally” there.
