Philadelphia…Hair Cuts, Modeling, Touristing, and Beer.

Yesterday was spent touring Philadelphia with Garrett and Brandy, and today is a work/travel day.

Our day started off doing a photo shoot (Yes, we’re also models…in very high demand.) for Garrett’s new shirt designs. Each design is a character from a comic book he just finished. They’ll soon be for sale and he’s given us a couple to model around the continent, taking pictures and whatnot for sales/internet material. As soon as he gets a website up, we’ll be letting you all know.

This, in turn, makes him our first sponsor, and we’ll be announcing another a few stops from now.

Next, we had lunch at Geno’s, world famous for their cheesesteaks and patriotism.

After the delicious lunch, we walked all over the city. We got to see Love Park, the Benjamin Franklin Institute, and various other parks along the way. Our last stop was the Museum of Art, famous for the Rocky scene where he runs up the steps, which offered a great view of the city at dusk.

Finally, we ended up at a bar called McGlinchey’s with well-priced drinks and a cute server.

Earlier in the day, I decided that I needed a haircut. Which, I did. I actually cut my own hair, with a 12 guard on clippers, all around. I’ve been wanting to use the “Left Ear” and “Right Ear” guards, so I did. Unfortunately, this looked utterly ridiculous. There was only one option from there: Shave it.

Hey Al I mailed your shirt on Friday just in time for your next birthday :)

Jen, a good word from Ben never hurt, but ask Al about my delivery policy :D

I get it now. Ben’s living in a van to avoid the draft, but had his head shaved just in case they find and enlist him. ;-)

We don’t know what you’re talking about. I’m assuming that this joke references something from “before our time.” ;)

Yall look like gay superheroes.

But I really want a Garret French original, so I’ll be sending you beer money in the hopes of you putting in a good word. I realize after my first comment, that might be tough, but Money always makes things better.

Also, Ben, as you are traveling in a van & void of a working postal address at this point… consider your Save the Date invitation this post.

April 26th, 2008. Please don’t be in Thailand during that time & come to the shin-dig.

Two things for you:
1. “Yall look like gay superheros”
OMG that is funny. The first thing I thought of is The Ambiguously Gay Duo skit
2. Garrett still owes me a freaking shirt for my birthday. Take a number pal!!

If we’re going for SNL references, I was thinking more along the lines of “Two Wild and Crazy Guys.” Since we’re imports and whatnot.

I always wanted to be called a superhero…and not just in the bedroom.

Save the Date saved.

That’s just you.

And yeah, we just discovered late yesterday that people have contributed to the beer fund and we’ll be making a thank you post. Your donation will definitely be going to a rum and coke. ;)
