Perhaps you’ve seen the commercial for the WristTec blood-pressure monitor, which is affiliated with the Invention Channel. If so, you might remember that the woman who speaks on behalf of the product is named Pat Murphy-Stark. You would know this because she says, "I’m Pat Murphy-Stark," as if we all know who Pat Murphy-Stark is. I felt bad that I don’t know who Pat Murphy-Stark is (and maybe you don’t know who Pat Murphy-Stark is either), so I headed to the Internet and here is what I found on her website:
This week Forbes predicted the futuristic fashion we’ll be wearing in 10 years. Meanwhile yesterday at LA Fashion Week celebrities were already sporting garb that looked like it’s from another millennium. While Forbes’s futuristic fashion is multi-purpose, celebrity high-fashion fashion serves no purpose at all .

Two days ago, a minor electrical fire erupted during a live broadcast, forcing the anchors to panic and flee their desks mid-report. Thank god they made it back to their desks alive.

NBC totally loves this online business. First there was the whole YouTube/"Lazy Sunday" business, then they announced that they were going to produce new episodes of The Office that will be online only, and now they’re allowing fans of Scrubs to name Turk and Carla’s baby on NBC.com. (By the way, they are my absolute favorite couple on TV. They’re the anti-McDreamy/Addison.)
