Derailed?

5 FEB 07

First off, heck of a Superbowl, eh? That’s about as sloppy as they come, but as expected, Peyton’s Colts rose to the top. I was impressed with his patience and how he picked apart the defense. Shannon Sharpe talked about the good Rex and the bad Rex. I guess it was the bad Rex who showed up.

I’m still recovering from the Snickers ad. Who was this trying to appeal to? Are people rushing out to buy Snickers because two men kissed? From a technical standpoint, the ad did a good job of making the audience go, “Oh no. What the heck is he doing? Oh God. He’s not gonna… HE DID!

Now that I think about it, doesn’t the actual bar remind you of anything?
But that’s already far too much press for the Snickers company. This is not a paid advertisement, after all. Let’s talk about me, shall we?

My weightloss program was going along swimmingly, but this week was rough. The whole family has the sniffles, and I think I used that excuse to slack off on my run. I have been steadily losing a pound a week since New Years, but this week saw no change from last week. I think I’m going to try the old smaller-meals-more-frequently plan, and see if it has an affect. It’s always worked before (provided I stick to it).

Weight: 179

Two men kissed in a Snicker's ad? Were they hot? Oooo!

I just saw the Snickers add. Definetly not hot. But not nearly the big deal the media/GLADD is making it out to be.
