During last week’s blizzard, I was kooky-crazy enough to take my life in my hands and ride my freakin’ bike!
And I found it a kind of wet and wild adventure, almost like surfboarding (but with rats instead of sharks around me).
But the next day, when I took my bike out, all the snow had settled and gotten icy–there was more white than at a Klan rally–and there had been precious little response in the way of clearing it away despite all the hype.
This was no fun for a biker–or even for a sensible person.
So last night I went on MSNBC’s The Last Word With Lawrence O’Donnell to dry off and moan about it.
I said only celebs liked the blizzard, not normal folks. (“Ricky Martin was like, “Ten inches! I love it!”)
We also discussed the New Year’s Eve debacle of the immortal icon Snooki being denied admission to a Times Square ball!
Wait till you see what I said about huh.
