What is going on these days???

An ingenious (?) proposal.

The J's membership director was asked to help a prospective member propose to his girlfriend this weekend. He called Giselle to set things up, and they rehearsed it. Basically, he was going to bring in his girlfriend for a tour and try to sign up. The guy got into an argument over their membership category.

He wanted a couple membership, but you would have to be in a single-domain or married for that to take effect. (We have a couple of kids with two mommies, and they get family/couple rates.) SO the argument wears on, and she says, "The only way I can give you the couple price is if you're married, I'm sorry." And the guy says, "So, if I would be to ask her to marry me right here, you'd let us have the couple rate?" And she says yes. So the guy says, "Well, it's a good thing I have this with me," digs in his pocket, pulls out a classy ring, gets down on one knee, and the rest is history. They set up a small camera ahead of time and had bottles of champagne and everything. Ta-da!

Ingenious, or idiotic? Points for creativity and originality...but...I dunno. It's not the most romantic place in the world. They aren't even Jewish, so it's not like it's a place with childhood memories or anything.


Snuggie Cult on My Street?


I went to pick up some Quizno's for dinner, and saw something odd that caught my eyes: A delivery guy from Pizza Hut handing over a box of pizza to a woman in a Snuggie. On my way back home with dinner, Snuggie lady was walking down the block with a slice in her hand following a young emo boy, STILL WEARING HER SNUGGIE.

WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO!!????!!!!!???!!!!!!???!

Did you happen to get a picture of your Snuggie Sighting? Candid Snuggie Sightings (non-staged) are compelling - especially when there's Pizza and an emo kid...

Unfortunately, no, I didn't. I carry my camera in my purse at all times, but I was driving alone and couldn't safely grab it. Of all the missed photo opportunities, this is the one I regret most in my life.

That was an odd proposal. Definitely not romantic. And right up until he pulls out the ring, she's probably thinking, "I'm so embarrassed. My boyfriend is so cheap."

I know, right? I don't think I could say "yes..." at least, without slugging him, first...
