Uh. Well, down at the Wawa it's 2.73.

Here is a Wawa, though it's not that one. They're all pretty much the same.


Wawa was invented in Pennsylvania, though there are actually more of them in New Jersey. Which, well, they're nicer than 7-11. I don't have much call for them, but they come in handy from time to time.

Here is some wikipedia information about Wawa:

On April 16, 1964, Wawa Food Markets opened their first store in Folsom, Pennsylvania under the guidance of Grahame Wood. To this day many Wood family members are active within the company. Although Wawa is a family-run business, the employees of Wawa also hold a relatively large percentage of stock. Most Wawas are open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. The chain's name comes from the site of the company's first milk plant and corporate headquarters in Wawa, Pennsylvania. The name of the town is in turn derived from the Ojibwe word for the Canada Goose (taken from The Song of Hiawatha).An image of a goose in flight serves as the Wawa corporate logo.

In Michigan, Ojibwa is spelled with an a intead of an e.

That's about it from here.

I'm going to make a quiz based on some of the Vox hunt questions I've submitted. I hope you like it.




Vox Hunt: Guilty Pleasure

Audio: Show us the most embarrassing album in your collection.
Inspired by Jay.

I don't know why I would own stuff if it embarrassed me. And if it embarrassed other people, well, screw them and their fearful, narrow-minded ways. That's like 6th graders making fun of a kid for having the wrong brand of shoes.

I do, for some reason, own a CD copy of The New Kid soundtrack. It's really not any good, as it doesn't have many of the songs they played in the movie. The movie was terrible, but had a fun soundtrack. Which isn't the one you buy. Anyway, if I were the embarrassed sort, I guess I'd be embarrassed that I might have spent 10 bucks or so on something of such low quality. But whatever, the deed was done.


Vox Hunt: Magnetic Fields

Show us some magnets.

sigh. I thought I submitted some really good hunt ideas a while back there. Other people have, too.

Here are magnets:


Here is some partially questionable advice on becoming a chick magnet from a website called mynippon.com:

Want to be a Chick Magnet?
How to make any woman want you
If you are middle-aged or older man, put yourself on the market. Consider some plastic surgery, dye your hair, visit a cosmetic dentist, start a diet, visit the gym more often, spruce up your wardrobe, and give your apartment/bedroom a makeover.

Be cool and confident. Don’t get upset with other people while you are with her. It’s embarrassing and undermines your “gentleman” image.

Age difference is less of an issue even if that whisky you're drinking is older than she is.

Don't be quid pro quo. Tell her you are looking for exciting dialogue and mean it.

Everyone’s so busy you need three girlfriends to get two dates a week.

Once you have one girlfriend, offers come out of the woodwork.

If the conversation is going nowhere, realize it’s her, not you. So cut your losses.

Don't be disappointed if she is uninformed on international affairs. That's what watching only Fox News does to you.

And here is a bonafide chick magnet:





Vox Hunt: Adaptation Nomination

Book: What book would you like to see made into a movie? 
Submitted by Felipe Anuel.

Possibly this one...

Double Whammy
Carl Hiaasen

But I don't know if justice could be done to it at all.

So many books would make great movies, if the screenplay writer had a really holistic understanding of the story, rather than just leaving some elements in and leaving others out, for what seems like capricious reasoning.



Vox Hunt: I'm The DJ

Audio: Congrats, you're the radio DJ!  What six songs are in your first on-air set?
Submitted by LeendaDLL.

I seriously don't want to work that hard.

What mood am I in? Who is my audience? What time of day is it?

If the answers are the current one, you, and now, well...

Fascination Street--The Cure
Learning to Fly--Pink Floyd
Shake Your Groove Thing--Peaches and Herb
Step On--The Happy Mondays
Winter Sky--Big Country
Rockafella Skank--Fatboy Slim

Do you want me to upload them here? I'm thinking of having lunch just now.
