Well, it’s been one hell of a week, but we’ve made it to Friday. The Pineapple People have been sprinting at full speed all week, but we survived it, as we always do.
Travel time is kicking into high gear again; it’s that time of year, I supposed. Barlow was fortunate enough to receive a trip to the U.S. Open and a chance to play golf at a fancy golf course in Maryland (somehow related to the U.S. Open) from one of our media outlets. He had a wonderful time and is very thankful for the opportunity. He is getting home just in time to head to North Carolina on Sunday for a new production for Rogers Auto Group in Shelby. It will be a quick trip, and then Jay and Barlow are off to Alabama to visit our friends at Gilland Chevrolet GMC. It is definitely starting out as a busy summer for the Pineapple People! But you know us; that’s when we’re at our best. There are several more trips planned for the summer, but I don’t want to overwhelm you. That’s just for the next two weeks.
Jay had a positive experience this week: he got a new desk! Hooray for Jay and his new fancy workstation. We had a fun adventure shopping for this yesterday, where we encountered the worst salesperson on the planet. If she’s your grandmother, I apologize.
Has everyone seen the famous “riot kiss” photo? I actually hadn’t, just because I’ve been so unbelievably busy this week, I didn’t have any down time to peruse the Internet. But I just stumbled across it.
To me, it looks like something out of an action movie. Turns out, the couple went to the Stanley Cup finals in Vancouver. After a 4-0 Canucks loss, the city went wild…and not in a good way. The gal in the photo, Canadian Alex Thomas, was knocked to the ground by one of the policeman’s shields (rude!). Her date, Australian Scott Jones, immediately dropped to the ground to check on her. (See, chivalry isn’t dead!) Not to worry, Alex’s only injury is a bruised leg. The photograph was taken by a freelancer and turned into Getty Images, where it was instantly picked up by media outlets and social networking sites worldwide. If it were me, I’d get a framed wall portrait of that bad boy; it looks awesome!
Bad news for Rebecca Black fans…the video for “Friday” has been pulled from YouTube due to a legal dispute. I’m very sorry for your loss.
Well, Pineapple fans, I just got handed a few more items for my to-do list, so I’m going to sign off now. Have a wonderful weekend, celebrate your dads on Sunday, and I’ll see you next week! Remember, if you haven’t signed up to play in Hands & Holes next Thursday, it’s not too late!
