$1 Value Menu Indeed – When Sonic can get my obnoxious order of 1 Chicken Strip Sandwich, no lettuce, with pickles, and light may-o right when I’m only forking over a buck ‘seven – I appreciate that. And when they ask that we call in and give them a positive review – will do.
We are all extended the offer of a free beverage for answering our area Sonic’s survey with every purchase – good review or bad. That’s nice, right? Especially when some establishments that rhyme Schmarbucks don’t offer so much as a frequent buyer card for the $4.11, 18 oz. hot nonfat milk, 1 tbl.sp. cocoa, sugar & 2 oz. espresso – surely dusted with crack that we’re all addicted to. But they do offer “inspirational prose” on the cup so that we may be enlightened and inspired, like a failed, vice-presidential candidate so I guess that’s fair.
Frightfest filmmakers Hammer have tapped New Mexico to shoot their upcoming film, Invasion of Privacy (retitled The Resident). Set to star Oscar Winning actress Hilary Swank and the gorgeous Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
Filming begins late May through mid-July. We will be following this one closely…Ha
I have always wanted to write a post about this picture. It’s from waay back in ’07 when Ali Larter was hosting being paid to party at the Svedka Vodka 2033 “book” launch.
But forget all that – the reason this pic is a modern-day Ansel Adams is because of the sheer beauty in the subtle yet fierce, involuntary stink-eye that Svedka Vodka girl is shooting the Hero.
I hope Svedka Vodka Girl is okay this weekend – while Larter has somehow landed herself in the number one movie currently in theaters – despite craptacular reviews.
Surely this is her inner dialogue:
Hang in there Vodka Girl – You’re hot and you’ll get a big screen role one of these days. NM appreciates your beauty and sure abilities to stand out in the pack of otherwise undiscernable pancaked face, prop girls and triffling, redi-whipped bikini wearing chicks. Hollywood, New Mexico awaits.
What goes together like PB & J, Hand & Glove, or Horse & Buggy? Why it’s space age Tempur-Pedic® , TEMPUR® material as developed by NASA and Amish furniture.
At the corner of irony and commercialism in ‘Q Town’, New Mexico you can mix your desire for old-timey, handcrafted wood furniture with your need for orthopedic sleep – the likes of which your craftsman can never or will ever experience.
The DP/SO/SE says, “Maybe they use some Amish approved method for preparing the TEMPUR® material that keeps it authentically Amish.”
Come on, even Baconnaise is Kosher – This just isn’t. Kosher, no. Funny, yes.
Okay, I know this is two posts in a row featuring Mama O, but this story is just too-too. We’ve all seen what happens when you fool with Mother Nature. Well, now Mutual of Omaha is battening down in preparation to do battle with The Mother of Media.
Because M of O chose an Oprah associated phrase, being the “a-ha moment”, to resuscitate an insurance co. I thought deceased, along with the awesomeness that was Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom show of the 70’s, they’re readying to go all out to wield the term by making an actual Federal Case out of it.
WWGD? (What would Geico do?) – They have slogans spewing out their media blow-hole. I’d sooner kiss the Geico Gecko, comb the Geico cavemen, or gladly take-up with their oft hyped stack o’cash I “could be saving with Geico” than get wit a co. that will poke the gentle giant.
Beef didn’t win – so won’t M of O.
Hey, my baby son (circa 1993) couldn’t correctly exclaim, “Voila!” It came out, “Wall-E!” Can I sue Disney/Pixar?
Happy Earth Day yesterday, today and tomorrow – if geologically speaking you wish to have one.
On Mama O’s Earth Day special she didn’t exactly teach me a lot – but she preached and hopefully opened some eyes in Oprah Nation with riveting footage of the “Texas Swirl” in the ocean made of our decades and decades of plastic waste. Sad seals, turtles and birdies all going the way of the rest of us, just much quicker in that specific locale.
It’s our planet people, NOT a disposable cup – our ONLY planet.
The Santa Fe tourism dept. needs to focus on the very best thing the “City Different” has to offer, and that is – Like Las Vegas, a great escape. Santa Fe offers Fanta Se like no other lil’ city. The Capital city could stand to capitalize on its Peyote image.
Now, I know about as much about drug culture as I do about space travel – I don’t do either, but there is much knowledge and opinion on both in this one.
The Pecos Ranch includes a near 6,000 sq. ft. main house, 1,464 sq. ft. caretaker’s home, other multiple guest houses, barns, etc., etc.
“For over a decade, I searched for a property that embodies the alluring natural majesty and splendor of the Southwest. My search finally ended here, at the Pecos River Ranch. It’s impossible to put into words the beauty and power of this land.” – Val Kilmer
In Europe they’re buzzing or huffing or whatever French and Italian people do with their gossip over Denzel Washington’s generosity in rescuing the financially broke New Mexico Boys & Girls Club of Roswell, New Mexico.
