I've been coming here every summer of my adult life, and every summer there she is oiling and lotioning, lotioning and oiling... smiling. I can't take this no more! ... Michael Squints Palledorous walked a little taller that day. And we had to tip our hats to him. He was lucky she hadn't beat the crap out of him. We wouldn't have blamed her. What he'd done was sneaky, rotten, and low... and cool. Not another one among us would have ever in a million years even for a million dollars have the guts to put the move on the lifeguard. He did. He had kissed a woman. And he had kissed her long and good. We got banned from the pool forever that day. But every time we walked by after that, the lifeguard looked down from her tower, right over at Squints, and smiled. Wendy the lifeguard was played of course, by Marley Shelton, who is aging mery much like a fine wine.
Now let's get to the bottom of this Rite-Aid mystery, shall we? This one actually took some input from several people to finally nail down, so let's run through this. Initially, a Google search on "626-351-" leds me to the Rite Aid Pharmacy located at 3745 E Foothill Blvd in Pasadena, CA, which I incorrectly thought was located inside this Whole Foods. Mark and Scott were the first ones to point out that you had to travel up that side street to the top of the hill, as the Rite Aid was located on the opposite side of the building. Unfortunately, that view doesn't allow us to get close enough to the building to confirm or exclude this location as the same one in the original photo, as blue-framed glass doors are pretty standard for most modern Rite-Aids pharmacies.
Shalin was then able to nail down the name of the Pharmacist -- Sonal Desai -- which was then confirmed as working in this Rite-Aid located at 1421 E Washington Blvd, also in Pasadena. I don't think this is the location of our photo simply because the lower portions of that Rite-Air are covered in blue tiles, versus plain white brick walls on our original photo. I suppose it's possible the building has been remodeled (and coverdd with blue tile) but I'd wager it was just some personnel shuffling. Either way, great catch by Shalin. Interestingly enough, Kelby too was able to track down the Sonal Desai, only the info he found pointed back to the original location, 3745 East Foothill Boulevard. Why the fuck does Google always show the wrong view? Adding to this, James was able to ascertain the name of the second pharmacist -- Ann Anunta -- which again pointed him back to 3745 East Foothill Boulevard.
Taken individually, none of these pieces of evidence could have given a definitive answer on where Diana Raspopova (thanks Tim!) geared down, but collectively I think we've reached the right conclusion. Especially since Tim's gallery provides us with the street address as 3745. So yeah, there's that. Anyway, if you're bored and are looking for some things to do, might I suggest finding: Honeybaked Ham, Home Depot, and Wells Fargo.
Oh, and since the BATFE's potential ban on XM855 ammo has been announced, places like Cheaper Than Dirt have already started price gouging, so if you are looking for in stock XM855, HERE IT IS, or at least what's left of it. Remember the ATF has 30 days to make their decision, so don't JUST buy ammo -- send feedback directly to the ATF (email in that link) and explain to them why you think this idea is bullshit. Then WRITE YOUR CONGRESSMAN AND SENATORS and politely urge them to cut the atf off at the fucking knees.
Okay, movie buffs, I need your assistance in identifying this stack of DVDs. I can identify: Mr. Nice Guy (I love Jackie Chan), CKY2K (I hate Bam Mangera), ________ Zoolander, The Pianist, The ________ Kids, _________, ______ak the warrior. The laast one is not the 13th Warrior, or Phoenix the Warrior. Any ideas?
