Mink eyelashes??? Don't tell PETA
So, I was thinking, if one wanted to go stargazing...and can I stay at the Motel 6 and just visit these other places?

My friend Marc and I went to a comedy club tonight to see Mitch Hedberg . Found this quote about him on a web page and I would say this completely sums him up. "He's like the genius kid in high school that smoked dope constantly and still got a 1500 on his SATs."
"I think a rotisserie is a really morbid Ferris wheel for chickens." -
-Mitch Hedberg

Randy Kagan opened up for him, he was hilarious! Here is his blog.
