Intolerance on the Megabus

Every discount bus line seems to have its horror stories. The Fung Wah is plagued by bus breakdowns and drivers being pulled over for traffic violations, Greyhound has creepers cutting off random people's heads, and Megabus, well, Megabus has passengers blithely reading pro-racial segregation and anti-caucasion faux-textbooks with such gems of wisdom as, "negroids should not mate with caucasians because the caucasian race is only trying to infect others with their leprosy." WHAT? What does that even mean?!?

I was able to snap a picture of the book he was reading after catching a few horrifying sentences. I guess the (caucasian) woman next to him didn't notice what he was reading because I saw them animatedly chatting later on. My only hope is that he was reading along in that book out of some morbid curiosity and was just as disgusted as I was.

In more pleasant news, I was recognized on the bus by two girls who read my blog! Hooray for random internet connection encounters :)

We Won Because You All Rock!

So the results of the New York Love Story film contest are in -- and we WON! We couldn't be more thrilled or more thankful to all of you for helping us win something so special. Your voting, tweeting, re-posting, and comments of support meant so much to us.

We can't wait to get started filming and share our hard work with you! It really is a dream come true for two actors getting married :)

Thanks also to Kat for hosting the contest and to Todd (whom we can't wait to meet!) for this incredible opportunity. Oh, and of course I can't forget the amazing Jenna of That Wife Blog, for finding the contest and pushing me to write our story for it!

There's a 10-foot tall chicken at my subway stop...

Nothing gets noticed like a man in an inflatable 10-foot tall chicken suit. Not only was he dressed like a chicken that was practically the size of the stay-puffed marshmallow man, but he was clucking and dive-bombing people as they walked by. Look at the fear in this lady's eyes as he went in for the kill:

It was pretty hysterical, actually. Either that, or I'm easily amused, because I sat there on a bench outside the subway station for a good ten minutes watching him chase people. I think he was advertising a fried chicken place, but I couldn't even tell you where.

The things you see in NYC :)
