Saturday Night Fangirl

So, after a night of drinking that ended an hour early (thanks, stupid Daylight Savings) last night, I was jonesing for some pizza. As an only occasional visitor to the Upper East Side, a resident pointed us towards a place on 3rd Avenue, somewhere around 83rd or 84th. As we walked in, we noticed some very large framed photos on the wall of a great man who had been known to enjoy a slice of sausage pizza now and then.

Sorry the pic sucks, but it was taken with a camera phone.

Yes, I ate at John Travolta's favorite NYC pizza joint. So the guys running the place told me, and so I believe. I must have asked the manager a zillion questions about John, and he told me to leave my number so he could call me if John ever came back. Ha. I'm no dummy.

Of course, in my now-sober state, I'm realizing that he was a fairly attractive Italian guy with possible ties to John Travolta, and I have been dateless for what seems like the last 100 years, so I probably should've slipped him the digits.

That pic is vaguely pornographic. I like it. Did you realize that at the time you visited us in Bay Ridge you could well have walked in Johnny Boy's exact footsteps? That 'hood was the setting of SNF.

Slipped him the digits? My mind races.

Sure, you could do worse than a guy who owns John Travolta's favorite pizza place.

What if Travolta had shown up? Would you have asked for some Grease Lightning?

Gah! What were you thinking? Go back! Date that man and write all about it here so I can live vicariously.

There's no reason you can't go back there!

"Why don't you put out a missin' person's report?"

That's my imitation of JT from Grease.

Using the patented "fold in half lengthwise" pizza eating move...

You're a pro girl, don't let anybody tell you otherwise!

I love it! You go girl. But, I can't help but think the dude was just feeding you a supreme line of bullshit so he could try and get into your pants-type-deal. Drunk or not your instincts are right on.

Mamma didn't raise no fool.

That picture is AWESOME. And I maintain that after a certain hour of night, pizza can only be eaten if folded in half. Well done.

You coulda been like John's cousin in law's wife or something! Just think of the possibilities for Thanksgiving.

Maybe you need to crave pizza again this weekend!

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
