Little did I know that there would be some live entertainment on the Bolt Bus to NYC on Friday afternoon. I didn’t even need my magazines or my videos or my MP3s!
I sat down on the bus in front of a guy and girl. Before the bus was even fully boarded, the guy began to put the moves on the girl. He seemed pretty shocked that she was still in college, but that didn’t stop him!
About 2 hours into the ride, she asked him, “So, what are you doing in New York this weekend?”
“I’m visiting my girlfriend,” he said.
The girl: “Oh, cool.”
The guy: “We’re probably going to fight all weekend. That’s all we ever do.”
The girl: “That’s too bad.”
The guy: “She lives in NY so we visit each other on the weekends and we always end up fighting.”
Then when we reached NYC, the girl said, “Enjoy your weekend with your girlfriend.”
And the guy’s response? “In an hour, I may not even HAVE a girlfriend.”
I was laughing on the inside. It was just so ridiculous.
My ride home was less eventful. I got stuck next to some young guy who slept most of the ride but took up way too much room. I had to push him at some point because he was encroaching on my space.

Since I wrote my post about Beautiful Mount Airy Lodge last summer, I have gotten almost 900 hits from people searching for “Mount Airy Lodge” or variants of that phrase. Some people found my blog post from Googling the line from their old theme song: “All you have to bring is your love of everything…”
I think that term gets me more traffic than anything else I’ve ever written. My I Hate You, RMV post, my Harriet Carter post, and my kugel recipe (or really, my family recipe…I can’t take full credit!)
I guess there are a lot of people feeling nostalgic for the commercials aired in Greater NYC from the 70s-90s!!!
A few other gems were the Carvel Commercials will the creepy Tom Carvel urging you to buy a Fudgie the Whale or Cookiepuss:
Or Crazy Eddie…as you know, his prices were insane:Filed under Blogs, nostalgia, videos | Comment (0)
