In the News

Seriously, I truly can't believe this happened to me, nor that our local news station was willing to use my Microsoft Paint picture instead of a photo and believe that my name is Lollipop Goldstein.

Though I truly truly truly wish they hadn't used the bulldozer attack story on the sidebar. My heart is breaking over that.

Not quite so funny when I saw that on the finished product.

Josh said...

Does this mean you're blogging from the ride?

bleu said...

Wouldn't you know Josh where she was? hmm hmm???

I just cannot believe you people have that much time on your hands, truly.

Lollipop Goldstein said...

Yes, I am live blogging this. And...wait...shit...that dip always makes my stomach plunge.

bleu said...

Can we toss you a lemonade and a funnel cake...wait do they make those kosher??

Busted said...

You are awesome...

Io said...

Oh! Pick me up an elephant ear while you're there! I love me some fried dough!

alison said...

astral said...

Sunny said...

You sure had me laughing! I was like, channel 19? HA!

As I tip up my early afternoon pre-dinner Hard Lemonade, I laugh at the hilarity of your news feature.

Wait....you're not called Lollipop??? I thought Mel was your net-name. Damn.

All this talk about carnival food makes me crave a corn dog and an Icee! :)

It shows dedication-- your wallet and whatnot is on the ground, but the mobile device allowing you to liveblog is firmly in your grasp. You can have my blackberry when you pry it out of my cold dead fingers, ha?
