Do something nice for someone for a change

Patrone's kids (kinda like Bebe's kids) are having a car wash to raise money for the prom. Here's the deets:


Genesis High School Car Wash
This Saturday (4/22) from 9 to 4
$5/car, $10/SUV
5601 47th Ave. (just west of Stockton Blvd.)

This fundraiser is to help my kids afford their prom. Most of the kids are very low income. If you can make it out to this, that would be great! If you would just like to make a donation, please email me at jason_patrone@hotmail.com. Also, I'm always looking for spare books to add to our classroom library.

Maybe I will go on saturday before the wedding and use it as an excuse to eat breakfast at Alonzo's!!

With your (presumed/assumed) approval, I will post this to the appropriate work bulletin board. Such a posting could go a long way towards keeping the hipster quotient in check.

Q: how many hipsters does it take to run a car wash?

A:none, they can't stand to get their chuck taylors wet!

p.s.-a couple of times in mexico we got jacked cuz there chilaquiles don't necessarily come with eggs (huevos). So it was even more like eating nachos for breakfast!

I'm confused, is that a complaint or are you bragging?

Q: How many hipsters does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: (Snootily) You mean you don't know?

I love that one. Forgive if it's an oldy moldy. I just heard it. I'm sure I heard it early though, cuz I'm that hip.

Don't forget how much cooler that light bulb was before it changed.

becka you have to use the indent (or italics, or something) when your post includes a quote from someone else. otherwise the reader can't tell who's saying what!

If "there" referred to Mazatlan then it would be right. Right?

Q: How many hipsters does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

A: 10. One to do it, and 9 to complain about how they liked the old lightbulb better.

I've never had chilaquiles with eggs, but then again, I've only tried them and Mexico.

Oh and duh, I already have that joke on vinyl.

Smiller, I'd kiss you if I wouldn't run the risk of having a bitter sweet love song written about me in three years.
