Ok…so here’s the deal guys….it’s time to LIVEN UP this blog a bit and dare I say, get a little personal! πŸ˜‰ hehe!! I get lots and lots of emails from people saying they follow my blog (which I am MOST grateful for…wink wink) so it’s TIME FOR YOU TO SPEAK UP, people! As many of you know…I’m usually a pretty goofy, mildly obnoxious person! So, one of my FAVORITE things to do is ask people (usually people that I know) RANDOM questions abut RANDOM things and see what they say! It’s usually QUITE FUNNY and very entertaining! Soooo, we are going to start the “fun question of the week”! (insert cheesy theme song here!)
SOOOO, before I ask the question, I’dl like to ask that you PLEASE do not judge me based on my questions…I simply pulled them from my wacky brain and put NO deep thought or personal preferences into them….just don’t think to far into it, k?


(please know…..i don’t want to rob stores, I don’t rob stores, I’m a good christian woman (i think!)….i just like to think of fun, crazy stuff that isn’t really realisitic at all!) HA!!!


…what is my answer, you ask??….well, I have two: the MAC store…..computers, not makeup…although, having everything in the MAC makeup store would definitely not be a bad thing! I guess I should call it the APPLE store. Then, my second one…probably CRATE & BARREL! Although, now that I really think about it…..owning the contents of a TARGET store would really enrich my life, as Target is my favorite place on earth. Hmmm…ok, so I have several answers! πŸ˜‰ And now that I think of it….having all the clothes in an Anthropolgie or Urban Outfitters…well, that would really ROCK too! K, I’ll stop now! πŸ˜‰ (****edit: mark inspired me to change my answer, instead of the apple store, I’d rob a great electronics store b/c they would have everything that the apple store would, plus some rocking appliances, plasma tv’s (mark and I are totally all over wanting a plasma right now!), camera gear, and other cool gadgety things!! Yea….that would totally ROCK!!!)

  1. Oh my goodness Jess! You cracked me up with your comment…..I think that everyone that reads your blog knows that you are a good person!

    It looks like I’m first to answer your very 1st Question of the Week. Let’s see……the one store on earth that I would rob??? I love DSW….but seriously…..would I want all of the contents? I can’t even fit all of my shoes in my closet now! So I’ll go with a Super Target because they have a little bit of everything and lots of things that I like! πŸ™‚

  2. I think I would knock off the local HH Gregg. Can you say “80 inch PLASMA Screen TV”? Mmmmm, KitchenAid Elite, sound systems, video equipment, cameras (because we don’t have enough already), GPS Units, IPods, High def radio… Whew, I have to stop before I start thinking about how I could actually do this!!!

  3. What a great question Jess!!!

    It is sooo difficult for me…I’m thinking like Mark….which is SCARY!!!! I would go with an electronics mega store…probably Best Buy….or the B&H Photo Mega Store in NYC. B&H has the higher end stuff so probably B&H.

    There is also the Gary Fong e-store….but not sure how I could rob an e-store! πŸ™‚ lol

    What about one of those Money Store places??? Do they keep millions on hand?

    Hey Mark….maybe we could start off small and hit the Cold Stone at Trader’s Point. I know we both would be packing heat…lol…all the employees could do to defend themselves is throw ice cream at us! Wouldn’t that be heaven!?!?!?!?!?

    Like Jess….My wife and I are NOT BAD PEOPLE! We have never robbed a store of anything or have any real intentions of doing so! πŸ™‚

  4. No fair Jess. You stole mine. Definitely the Apple Store. Wow, I’d really love one of the 30″ Cinema Displays. Would make managing the 500 apps that I have open at one time easier.


    I feel a wierd inclination to explain who you guys are to everyone…so that it all makes sense! πŸ˜‰ Not that it really will…but whatever!

    Ben “9 pin” is my bro in law and the designer of this ever so fabulous blog and my great website! (hence the apple store comment…nerd!) πŸ˜‰

    Mark is my crazy husband! (hence the crazy part….hehe!!!)

    B&C are Brandon & Cybil…our fav hus & wife videographer team in the city…and our dear friends! (hence the bh photo video choice..double nerds!) πŸ˜‰

    For those of you who are emailing me with your comments, PUT THEM HERE….the world is dying to know who you are! πŸ˜‰

  6. i’m with you, target all the way. i already THINK about wanting the entire store the second i walk in. it’s really sad. but you know what? ikea would be a fun place to rob too. πŸ™‚ i’d probably have to rent a few trucks to get everything back to my place though. πŸ™‚ ha! ooh you know where else?! best buy! i’m in need of a new tv right now! ok .. i need to stop. πŸ™‚

  7. IKEA…I FORGOT ABOUT IKEA!! that is a GOOD one…although probably slightly HARD to rob considering the three stories of stuff and all…but considering you’d get swedish meatballs out the deal, TOTALLY worth it! hehe!! πŸ˜‰

  8. Ok so Gary is telling me to pick Gary Fong’s E-Store – but I already have everything on that store so what would be the point of robbing it. stupid!!!

    I am just going to say I would rob a bank. I know it’s not a store… but it has customers and business hours. So I am going to say a bank and then go shopping at any store I want. Or I could just rob Gary… that would kind of be the same thing. LOL (he just asked if I would tie him up to rob him. WEIRDO)


  9. IKEA!!!! How could Cybil and I forget that place?!?!?!?!? It is the only store in the world that we will drive 3.5 hours to go to! I think we would need a bigger vehicle though to take it all

    I really think you MAC NERDS need to think about B&H Photo/Video….you can still get all the Mac stuff there as well!!!

    Now I am really concerned about myself…I am thinking like Mark AND Gary(Gary is telling me to pick Gary Fong’s E-Store…posted by Melissa)!

    Melissa…could you ask Gary how one could rob his e-store? Is it even possible?

    Just had a flash of brilliance…..if you rob B&H…you could also get Gary’s Lightsphere!!! Never mind…just checked…they are out of stock! What a shock! πŸ™‚

    Cybil and I are having a blast with this…we too are going to steal your idea Jess and put it on our blog!

  10. I would have to go with SEARS! You can get everything there! Tv’s, cameras, appliances, clothes, shoes, make up, jewelry, you can have it ALL! (and don’t forget TOOLS). I know, i’m a nerd.

  11. B & C are starting to sound like modern day Bonnie and Clyde!! I agree with Brandon, let’s start with the Coldstone. After all, I feel like they are already robbing me!!! $5 for a cup of icecream. PLEASE!

  12. then you need to get a get your name in pink! (but i will be slightly concerned about you then!) πŸ˜‰ Oh..and I agree, COLDSTONE is highway robbery! It’s MILK, ICE & SUGAR for goodness sake!!!

    Amy…that CRACKED me up! SEARS??? But…I actually see EXACTLY what you mean! We went in there recently…for the first time in ages…and I was DROOLING b/c they have great appliances, followed by huge TV’s & car TV’s & hundreds of TV’s, followed by cool exercise equipment, followed by down comforter & chenille blanket heaven, followed by beautiful coffee makers (i love coffee), followed by some slighly cute shoes, which I was truly a little surprised by….it was a FANTASTIC experience! I even bought a skirt! πŸ˜‰


    I TOTALLY AGREE ABOUT COLD STONE! I have even been dumb enough to put money in the tip jar so they will sing to me! …shaking my head…

    I’m going to dig through my winter clothes for a ski mask! Better yet…there is a Dick’s Sporting Goods right by Cold Stone…we can just rob them as well!

    This is so fun! Mark…we have to think of some really cool names to call ourselves. Maybe that can be the next question of the week?

  14. Hmm, I think I’d rob Juicy. Then I could wear cute, stylin’ sweat pants for the rest of my life. I love being comfortable. Because really, who wants to pay $150 dollar for a pair of sweat pants…but, I love ’em none the less! πŸ™‚

  15. Janey, that was SOO honest & cute. NO TV’s, no Camera’s, no money…BUT JUICY COUTOUR SWEATPANTS! HAAA!!!! πŸ˜‰

    Yea, $150 for sweatpants..that is STUPID! I love being comfortable too…mmmm, being comfy is soo yummy, isn’t it!

  16. Yes, and if you can manage to be comfortable AND cute…then that’s what I’m all about. I mean Juicy made sweat pants fashionable…now that is amazing!

  17. I specifically don’t tip because I don’t like their singing…STUPID!! And besides, it’s soooooooo expensive.

  18. it would have to be babies r us and pottery barn kids right now since baby arrived…..but my first choice would be Tiffany’s & Co.!

  19. Can I rob B&H Photo!?!?!

    Target would also rock!

    Clothing store… Ann Taylor the Loft!

    Ugh… I could be a serious thief!

  20. It is very late and I leave early for Boston in the morning.

    The first thought that comes to mind is Costco. You would never have to shop again. Books, movies, electronics (your Plasma), sporting goods, sea food, steak, fruit, drugs, booze, furniture, photo lab, photo equipment, eye glasses, contacts, condoms, and baby clothes.

    Hope that helps narrow down your next hit!

    p.s. you may want to hijack a train for this haul.


  21. Hmmm…Target would definitely be the most practical choice. I mean you have groceries, electronics, clothes, home decor, CDs, Nintendo games, etc.

    The Costco idea is a good one as well. Although, I think I have more clutter in my life after getting my Costco membership. And if I robbed a Costco, I better steal a forklift too.

    I think Missy’s bank idea is cheating. (Although if a genie gave me 3 wishes, my last wish would be more wishes)

    I guess if I were to rob a store, it would have to be Fry’s. First off, I hear that they are the devil (from a former employee, natch) so I’d be stickin’ it to the man or something for making my friend wear the standard black pants/white shirt catering uniform and then having her do work that gets her white shirt dirty and then scolding her about it. Second, Rob always finds good DVDs there that he likes. (Although he hates when they check his receipt when he leaves because he hates being treated like a criminal, especially right after paying- so anothe rpoint for stickin’ it to the man.) Third, they have the metal Dance Dance Revolution controller, and a I want one. Plus, you’d have all the benefits of robbing a Best Buy or other big box electronics store.

  22. Wow Mark! I didn’t know you were old enough to know who Butch & Sundance were! πŸ™‚

    You know…my last name is New…Butch’s real last name was NEWman!

    If only you and I had made it to Hollywood before Newman & Redford….no doubt we would have been voted the sexiest men alive…people would name cakes and babies after us…women would fall at our feet…mansions…beaches…babes…awwww…the life we could have had!

    Too bad our wives look at us as a Cheech & Chong or Beavis & Butthead! LOL πŸ™‚

    Have a great weekend M & J!

  23. Hey there cuz!!!!

    First off I wanted to say that I absolutely LOVE your site πŸ™‚ And to answer your first question of the week I think I would have to say Victoria’s and Target (Sorry but I cant pass up target it’s amazing!)

    Wish you all were here sweating with the rest of us (90+ weather is amazing!!!!) Take care and give my Love to everyone!!! Miss you and love you ~Fla. cuz

  24. Hey! All ‘use guys don’t think big enuf! Enlarge your mind. Didn’t any of you learn anything from Pinky & The Brain?!! First, I’d rob/take over Google–who does’t go there? Then, begin controlling their minds when they log on by redirecting all their inquiries to my mind control website Ben’s gonna build! Why rob a store when ‘use can own the world!
    Second stop would be Fry’s Electronics–they have more for less than any of the other outfits–my money will go further owning them.
