Good morning, Pineapple fans! It’s a busy day around here, and I don’t mean with just work. The Pineapples’ beloved Oklahoma State Cowboys face off against the Aggies of Texas A&M tonight at Boone Pickens Stadium. Barlow and Adam are going to knock off a bit early and head down to Stillwater to cheer on the Pokes. It should be a great game, and hopefully a winning one for the Cowboys. Let’s keep up the streak, boys! We’ve been hard at work all week, which is difficult with the beautiful weather we’ve been having the past few days.
I’m the current black sheep of the Pineapple family, because I’m blowing off the trip to Stillwater to attend the Tulsa State Fair with my family tonight. I know that OSU games are always fun, but I look forward to the fair all year! I missed two years ago when my appendix decided it didn’t like me anymore, and I was bummed for weeks. Cheesy, I know. But there’s something comforting in the fact that the fair is always the same, not to mention the food! I recently heard about the absolute amazingness (is that a word?) of the deep-fried Snickers, and I think I just may have to try one tonight. But I promise I’ll make someone share, and I won’t eat it all by myself. I’ll admit I was a little bit disturbed when I saw the Krispy Kreme burgers on the news this morning. I thought, surely that’s not really what it sounds like. But oh, was I wrong. Hamburger patty, bacon, cheese, and “all the fixins” between two Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Uh, no thanks. That’s one item that I will skip for sure. The sad thing is, the folks chowing down on the news seemed to actually enjoy them. If you go to the fair and eat a Krispy Kreme burger, let me know how it is. Today I am continuing with my NADA convention project. Who knew there was so much to do? We already have everything for our booth, so you would think after you register and get a booth assignment, you would just show up and set up your display. Oh, no, there are a million details that you wouldn’t even think about. You have to rent carpet (which comes in a delightful array of rainbow colors). You have to rent electricity. As if the building doesn’t have electricity. Everyone is trying to make a buck, I suppose. Need Internet? Got to rent it. Perhaps you need a trash can, and someone to empty it for you? You got it, even more rentals. But after all the dirty work is done, it’s a terrific opportunity for some new clients to Pick the Pineapple! Here is a shot of Adam, Kiera and Barlow at last year’s convention in Orlando. Do you remember when Adam posted on our Facebook page about Katy Perry’s guest appearance on Sesame Street? After filming the spot, which featured Perry and Elmo, PBS was flooded with feedback concerning Perry’s revealing top. The scene has been cut from the show, but Perry is reveling in the aftermath. She recently filmed a clip for Saturday Night Live, poking fun at the incident in a roundabout way. Of course, she did lots of bouncing in her very revealing Elmo tee. If you’ve got a few minutes and would like to watch the SNL clip, click HERE. But I don’t want to offend anyone, so if you were upset by the Sesame Street scene, don’t watch.
Well, Pineapple fans, I’m off to learn how to rent carpet. And how to figure out which color to choose! Have a terrific Thursday, and don’t forget to tune in to the OSU-A&M game tonight! And remember to let me know how those Krispy Kreme burgers are. See you tomorrow!
