I’m working on a few things that probably won’t get done, so here’s some brief tidbits to hold you over until Monday.
When it comes to Kristi Gustafson and I, we just can’t let it go.
What’s “it,” you ask? I have no Earthly idea. Seriously, I’m at a loss as to what the problem is. It’s super weird. For the longest time I just ignored it, but that’s BORING.
Anyway, here’s the culmination of our latest “incident,” if you can even call it that. Maybe she’s just bothered by people who are far too amused with themselves, which I totally am. I mean, this is evidence of it right here.
Anyway, I always look forward to these bi-monthly exchanges of passive-aggressiveness. It’s sort of like a tradition. See you in March, Kristi! Shall we make it Facebook this time?
Controversy erupted yesterday when the twitter account for designer Kenneth Cole tweeted the following:
Taking advantage of the chaos in Cairo to deliver a bad joke and sell product? Man, that’s dumb. It’s even worse than when Wendy’s used the Manson Family murders to promote their Sharon Tater Salad.
Random Thing That Makes Me Unmanly: I’m far more excited for Turner Classic Movies’ “31 Days of Oscar” than I am The Super Bowl.
I do, however, appreciate the working class aspect of the two teams involved, particularly that both are named after prominent industries in their respective cities: the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
I think it’d be great if all teams did that. In fact, I might start a local sports league and make it a requirement that all teams participating do just that. Be on the lookout for the Cohoes Paper Rollers, the Delmar State Workers, the Troy Election Riggers, the Schenectady Drunkcops, and the Albany Menacing Guys at the Bus Stop!
Speaking of terrible commercials, has anyone seen that one for Kay Jewelers where the military guy is skyping with his wife and refers to his eight-year-old son as his “wing man“? Is anybody else creeped out by the implication there? What happens if the parents split up, is he going to take his son out to help him meet women?
“Man, I am knee deep in it! SOOOO getting laid tonight. Thanks, son.” *hair rustle*
UFC 126 is this weekend.
My picks are as follows: Miguel Torres over Antonio Banuelos, Jon Jones over Ryan Bader, Jake Ellenberger over Carlos Eduardo Rocha, Forrest Griffin over Rich Franklin, and Anderson Silva over Vitor Belfort.
On the undercard I got Cerrone, Mendes, and Yamamoto. And if Yamamoto doesn’t win and do so in convincing fashion, then as far as I’m concerned he’s done in this sport. Seriously.
See you next week, buckos.
