just a few last thoughts before heading out to vegas (baby)

First, I have to say how much I loved the Super Bowl ads this year. I can't remember the last time I laughed this hard at the commercials. My favorites were the "streaker sheep," the Whopperettes, and the magic fridge. I laughed so hard I cried. The next best part about the big game was that I watched it with my mom. We would call my dad down for some of the better commercials. But for the most part Mom and I watched it on TiVo, only stopping to watch replays and fast forwarding to ignore the officials talking. And of course, get to the commercials faster. Its unfortunate that hottie Hasselbeck didn't win.

Next, I have had an epiphany about my frustrations lately. I think half my problem has been that I've been home so much. I generally travel with my job every 2-3 weeks for a week or so. But I've been stuck in the office for nearly 3 months now (not including the personal trip to Europe). I think this is the problem. Suddenly I'm having to get used to being in the office long term, plus just learn to live at home long term. I've never spent this much time at home before and its killing me. So maybe after I finally get on the plane and the real stress begins in Vegas things will get better. The travel schedule gets pretty hectic after that, and I have to say, I'm looking forward to it.

And since some people have mentioned or noted the new ad above, I should probably acknowledge it to. Its just an experiment. I want to see how many years I have to have it up there before I ever make any money off of it. I only make a penny everytime someone actually clicks on it. And they don't pay you till you get $50. So I'm thinking 10 years or so before any of my friends actually see something interesting enough to click on.

If anyone was curious, or willing to contribute, there's an interesting response debate going on below this one in "what it means to be a single woman." A new hater doesn't quite grasp the concept. And a new person (TRS- welcome, don't know who you are) agrees with me. And Hardy and Sherpa are just commenting on the beauties of blog wars.

Which brings me to the "Best of the Web From Where I Sit." I feel like giving a few shout outs today. Over on
Hardy's blog' we are debating Pete Ashdown's run for the Senate. He's a democrat running against Sen Hatch (R-UT), and is pretty much a one note candidate (intellectual properties). Over on Tara's blog' you can have fun mocking her and her pending nuptials (and maybe even suggest a groom). Keli is due with Baby Girl #2 any day now. Rebekah' has ended her chemo treatments (yeah!). And the other blogs are as wonderful as always.
