I'd like a street shout-out please, Ben.


My best friend Eliza is getting married on my birthday in New York, New York. This means I have less than six months to decide what kind of a tourist I want to be. (MoMA vs. Statue of Liberty. Central Park vs. H & M. Letterman vs. Martha. Broadway Play vs. pictures with the Naked Cowboy. ) It's all very confusing.

But I do know I want to step off the plane at JFK and onto the Cash Cab. My dream come true. I already know I would use my brother Ryan as my mobile shout-out. He has game show clout. Jamie would use his brother-in-law Tim. We kind of have an argument about these two gentlemen, as to who is smarter. We hope to have a showdown of wits between the two someday. (Wendy, don't be mad! I actually think Tim is brilliant, but I have to stick with my closer relation.) This is a real argument we have on a monthly basis. When will it end???

I heart Cash Cab. And for the record, I would NEVER risk the double-or-nothing video bonus question. In case you were worried.

I would totally go for the video bonus!

Did you see the episode where two guys got in the cab and asked right away if it was the Cash Cab? Ben was like "huh?" and the guys said to never mind it was a lame and then *BAM* Cash Cab lights. Everybody was laughing.

I guess I'm a dork.

Abby, what is Cash Cab?

Sarah said...

I don't know what cash cab is either. Game show?

Abby said...

Click on the link guys. It is a game show in a cab in New York City. People get in thinking they're just in a cab and then lights start flashing. They answer questions until they reach their destination, but if they get three wrong, they get kicked out right there. It's awesome.

I just looked at your blog after a long time of not looking at it and read your post and saw your pictures of you and jamie and your adorable little babies and listened to innocence mission sing somewhere over the rainbow and noticed your interests are turkish delight and sixteen candles and started crying. i miss you.

Ditto like you don't even know.

My wife and I are convinced that she is smarter than me. But I really am your best Cash Cab bet.

Ryan, you rock.
