Wake N’ Blog: Big Deal, The Pizza Was Probably Cold By Then

Wake N’ Blog is the Sportress of Blogitude’s morning link dump. Another late start today, as I was flexing my awesome blogger muscles once again over at With Leather. Don’t be afraid, blogger muscles don’t bite – unless I want them to. Send tips to and you might be spared.

• Assami Semde, a 19-year-old pizza deliverer in New York, fended off an armed robber during a delivery yet still managed to deliver the pizzas. Via the AP: “As Semde headed to the 27th floor, he came across two men in a hallway who started harassing him, saying they wanted a slice of pizza. Semde said no, that he had a delivery to make. But one of the men pulled out a gun and told him and Semde dropped the pies on the ground. As gunman reached down, Semde said he lunged at him, and toppled him off balance.” Nice. Now I love pizza, but no slice is worth tussling with some Noid-like criminal. [MSNBC/AP]
