I am so on the ball these days.

image

So I have been trying that sit-on-a-ball-instead-of-a-chair thing in my office*. I have been meaning to do this for years, to help offset the Blogger Butt effect. Which is similar to the Freshman Fifteen only chattier. So last night I ran up to the sporting goods store and picked me up a giant ball. And [...]

Being your wife is a mild form of torture. Basically.

The copy says…“Making beds, getting meals, acting as family chauffeur — having to do the same dull, tiresome work day after day — is a mild form of torture. These boring yet necessary tasks can bring on nervous tension, fatigue and what is now known as "housewife headache."’ Actually I don’t think it is boredom [...]

AdTalk: White Owl Miniatures

images65whiteowl

Help me out here, I am confused; If she was a man she would smoke White Owl. And well she is not only smoking one, but she is even wearing one…. so does that mean this is a man? If so- he is HAWT. Just sayin. Oh and if the styling looks a little familiar- [...]

Cuz every woman loves to lick an ashtray. Oh lord. The copy on this thing is classic “take a puff. blow in her ear. And she’ll follow you anywhere”. Um, not exactly Mr. Copywriter. If some a$$hole guy blows cigarette smoke in a woman’s ear EVEN in the screwed up wacked out 70’s…she would likely [...]

I am wondering just how completely mortified and damaged Billy and Cindy were to have to walk out from their dressing rooms in UNDERWEAR and stand this awkwardly close together to be photographed. And I am also wondering WHERE can I GET me SOME OF THESE? How killer would it be to rock a full [...]

So many men in bad suits, and so little time. I am sure some art director somewhere was saying things like “We will just SPLASH the paint over the backdrop! It will be DYNAMIC. And YOUNG and FRESH!” while using hand movements and smiling convincingly. Then the budget guy with the bow tie would give [...]

Bruno Mars is Sammy Davis Jr’s love child*

image

It seems so obvious to me. The first time I saw Bruno, and heard about his obsession with music from the 40s, 50s and 60s….clearly he was channeling his father**. And then when I saw him perform recently on the Grammy’s.  It became pretty obvious he is really Sammy Davis Jr. JUNIOR.***  Don’t you see [...]

AdTalk: She always matched her dress to her table runners.

Ever drive by a mobile home park and think- “Wow. At one point that was someone’s dream home.” No? Well it was. Before mobile home parks were known as natural-disaster-magnets, they were actually kinda cool. After all, not only was it better than apartment living, but it was MOBILE. So you could just pick’er up [...]
