first off: #%* groundhog!
but onto today. i have my morning ritual down to a science, but unfortunately, i was never any good at science. this morning, before i left the house, i managed to forget a sweater (because they keep the heat set to "refrigerator" in my office), my lunch, my navigation doohickey and my ipod.
the worst of these things was my missing ipod, because without it, i am forced to listen to the morning shows. i generally like listening to KC101 out of New Haven, but I couldn't stomach a morning recap of the patriots losing to adorable manning brother #2 (who looks like a 16 year old wearing his big brother's pads *and* who lost me my office pool by scoring that last touch down). i do still harbor a crush on manning brother #1 ever since his humorous SNL hosting (where he is remarkably funnier than tom brady - who is nice on the eyes, but the flippers are a little too far apart in his pinball game, if you know what i mean).
oddly, that was not what i tuned in for, however. they spent a better part of a half hour discussing hannah montana. my normal world doesn't include a lot of miley cyrus/hannah montana discussion, so i was a little out of the loop when i went to the movies this weekend and was nearly run over in the ladies room by a mob of 10 year olds wearing blonde wigs and hot pink accessories. apparently, the "behind the scenes" 3D movie of hannah/miley was in theaters for a limited engagement.
you have never seen such a ridiculously unappealing line before in your life. the star wars line and harry potter lines were both infinitely better than the screaming, shrill cavalcade of pre-teen girls that was approaching the theater. i'm hoping and praying that if i do have a child, and if it happens to be a girl, hannah montana will be a 30 year old mother of two by the time little Penelope can go to the movies.
but we did watch the game with anonymous and her family, which is always a good time. little e managed to amuse himself by this game that involved stacking dvds on my lap, and then stacking them on the other side of the room. i had no idea i was playing, but it really didn't bother e.
and my vote for favorite super bowl ad: the doritos mouse trap ad. i didn't see them all (i admit that i switched over to the complete jane austen on masterpiece theater at 9), but this one and the "follow your heart" careerbuilder commercial were funny to me.
what were your favorites?
So many books...
