Smoke and Mac

The secondhand smoke being pumped into our bathroom makes me sick.

Literally and mentally.

So, instead, I will watch No Reservations (Chicago episode) and dream about this:

Yum. Mac & joe from Schnipper's. Delicious.

Dear Whole Foods,

How do you spell the plural of "avocado"?

On one side of the avocado stand, you wrote "avocadoes." Just around the corner (inches away!), you wrote "avacadoes." Personally I would spell it "avocados" but I'm not 100% sure what's correct.

Also, do you print each sign individually? I thought, being a major chain, you would mass produce your signs. How do you end up with 2 signs for avocados right next to each other with different spellings? I guess shoppers should be glad they have the same price...

(And no, didn't buy avocados, but was perplexed when I saw the "avacadoes" sign.)

I had a bizarre dream last night. Now, I only remember parts of it,
parts that don't even seem related.

In one part, people were recreating different dishes. This was no
doubt influenced by watching the Top Chef Le Bernardin episode last
night (finally).

In another, we were trying to get on this ride that was like the
dinosaur ride at Epcot with the long rows of seats, but since we got
in late, they only put out a few chairs for us and we didn't get a
row. And we just sat in the back in our individual chairs.

There was more that I don't remember right now. Strange.

Cupcakes and beaches. Two of my favorite things. Mmmmm.

Talking about the pirate ship in Tampa, "the pirates... hopefully none from Somalia."  Seriously?

Superbowl Ads I

Almost to the 2 minute mark before halftime and very few memorable commercials, IMO.

(Not counting movie trailers.)

The Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head Bridgestone ad was amusing.  The Doritos ad where the guy gets hit by the bus was just weird (but memorable).  What does it mean?  If you eat Doritos, you can get whatever you dream of (girl with clothes flying off, cop not coming at you, free money from the ATM) but you get hit by a bus?  So basically, eating Doritos means you won't pay attention and you'll get hit by a bus?  The e-trade babies were cute, but the ad was ok.

Then, of course, there were the Clydesdales.  I love the Clydesdales.  The dating one where he runs to his love at the circus was amusing, and the show-off one was funny.  More Clydesdales please.
