Pimp Juice.
I had to work late last night to prepare for a 7:00 a.m. presentation this morning, so I never accomplished any of the errands I suggested I might in the post below.

But, seeing as I was out of both cat food and human food, I stopped at the little Korean market around the corner from my house on the way home. It's a nice little shop. They have a little deli, carry all the basic necessities of food and sundries, and also stock a decent, if not high end, selection of wines and liquor. It's run by a really sweet Korean fellow named alex, and what I assume are an assortment of his relatives since only Alex speaks English.

I also like the store because it's such a melting pot. Art students from MICA, law students from UMBC, gays, yuppies, pensioners, every ethnicity and socioeconomic strata you can think of, and the local police hang out in the deli for coffee and sandwiches. Anyway - I made my selections, and I'm standing in line for checkout and I see a poster, which at first I thought was a joke - or at least a parody of the popular energy drink "Red Bull". The poster featured the rap star, Nelly, promoting Pimp Juice.

The website even links to promotional articles from CNN and an interview with Nelly and Rush Limbaugh.

I know I was tired and it was late, but this was just a little surreal.

    See, when I hear "Pimp Juice", my mind does not immediately conjure up a tasty energy beverage, but something more akin to an unpleasant unguent that will require an industrial cleaner to remove...

    I could use a serious energy beverage right about now - I don't care what it's called. With 4 hours of sleep under my belt, it feels like 3:00 AM, not 3:00 PM.

    Unguent? You ARE strange. Cute, but strange, definitely strange. :-)
