Random Prize Day! Another Pittsburgh’s Bestest!!!



Well…… what can I say!!  I’m honored!

And the cool thing is, if it wasn’t for yinz guys reading my silly little blog, watching the videos and sharing them… well, I’d still be picking my nose and eating cheese curls every night or even worse, writing stalking letters to Jodie Foster, as opposed to staying up to 2am every night writing snarky blog posts!

So, no snarkiness today.  Just a bunch of blushing and warm feelings inside (no, I didn’t pee my pants…as far as I know).

Just wanted to say THANKS to Pittsburgh Magazine and all of you for reading my stuff!  You can see all of the 60 Favorite Things and the Readers Poll winners here.

Oh shoot.. the music is starting to play me off… um.. I’d like to thank my mom, dad, God, my kids.. um, my producer.. shoot… I don’t have one of those… um… thanks to…um.. I know I’m forgetting someone .. um… Good night.. and THANKS!



I found a bunch of my old First Communion Cards in a box.  They still had money in them so I bought some gift cards to earn more Giant Eagle Fuel Perks and have randomly selected names of followers to which to give them.  If you’re name is listed below, email us at YaJagoff (at) comcast (dot) net, subject line PRIZE with your mailing address!  We will mail you a random gift card!

Yakkin’ With Ya Jagoff – Virginia Montanez (Jane Pitt)


Yakkin’ With Ya Jagoff

Long before there where smart phones and rampant social media, Pitt Girl grew a blogging audience like no other in Pittsburgh. She set the standard for local bloggers.

We are Yakkin’ with her about her “Make Room for Kids” fundraiser, toast, favorite girl scout cookies and which TV anchor person would play her in a movie.  Aaaaand we get chased by PPG Security (not a movie chase scene kind of thing with smashing cars but definitely chased.)


Follow her on Twitter @JanePitt

and on her blog



For the production!

So Many Gas Pumps From Which To Choose

 This is why this blog is such a necessary aspect of Pittsburgh life.  One, we can all see that this lady was only thinking of herself when she pulled in (No, there was not another car at the pump in front of her when she originally pulled in.)  Therefore we can all use this as a LEARNING MOMENT on how to NOT be a jag, um, well.. you know.

Two, we can also learn from this and “FEAR” that, if you’re not nice, you might end up being posted on this blog some day revealing your  inconsideration toward others!  “FEAR THE POST!”

And three, when you are frustrated with someone or something, don’t get mad OR get even.  WE are your outlet to vent!

So, back to the lady at the gas pump.  Wondering if, after she filled her tank, then left her car at the pump while she ran inside to get a Turner’s Iced Tea or, EVEN WORSE, stand in line to play 47 combinations on the daily lottery because she had a dream about a sailboat and corn on the cob.

Hey Mrs. Suburbanite-Surburban-Driver, those extra pumps aren’t like your decorative gnomes in your back yard.  The reason that there are sooooooo many gas pumps at the GetGo is so that OTHER people can get some gas the same time that you do!!!!  Crazy how that works, huh?

You may THINK you have to swing your Suburban out wide to the right to make a left hand turn, like a big-rig, but its REALLY not that big. Let’s make some room for others or get yourself a Mini-cooper, Ya Jagoff!
