Today I was shuffling tiredly upstairs after my shower, and I was wearing my yukata (short, summery kimono, which goes down to about mid-calf) with the "scuff" slip-on slippers I got for Christmas, and I suddenly realized that I looked like that crabby old lady from the Hallmark cards. I was appalled. Becoming the crabby old Halmark card lady really wasn't one of my goals in life.
Today was apparently the Super Bowl. I've only ever watched the game once, and that was when I was hanging out with 3 guys and we were playing bridge the whole time. I mostly only paid attention to the commercials. Upon searching YouTube, I see that it must have been 1993, because I vividly remember the excellent Michael Jordan vs. Larry Bird "Nothing But Net" McDonald's commercial:
I'm not a basketball fan, but I could still appreciate the humor of the ad. I love Superbowl ads in general, actually, like the recent one (last year?) with the little kid dressed up as Darth Vader & the 2000 one with the cowboy cat herders:
(I think the best cat herder bit is the brief shot of one of the cowboys diligently winding a ball of yarn by the campfire, though the cowboy with the lint brush is pretty hilarious, too.)
Super Bowl ads rock.
