Stupid colds...

I hate being sick. The sweaty, yucky, dizzy, stuffed-up, lethargy is just no fun. I do however enjoy not having to go to work which is what I did today, and look forward to doing again tomorrow. Sitting on the couch watching BASEketball, drinking gallons of hot tea, and not doing anything all day. I also spent a fair amount of time bumming around the interweb. Somehow I was previously unaware that Norah and Chuck have blogs. I think I'm gonna add a blog-roll to my side bar. If I missed you, leave a note and I'll add yours as well. For all I know I have other friends with blogs that I don't know about. Aight, I'm gonna go pop a couple NyQuil gel-caps (I can't do the syrup, the taste makes me gag ) and try to sleep.


More Advertising Silliness

So I was coming up the stairs at Montgomery BART this morning (no not the escalator, the stairs!) and I heard an a cappella group singing in the BART plaza. I love a cappella and these guys were actually quite good so I stopped to listen for a bit. It took a good minute for me to realize that they'd re-worded traditional songs to sing about these Attune probiotic wellness bars they were all holding. They were mugging it up for the audience and being generally silly. Singing "a few of my favorite things" and talking about all the flavors the bars come in. They were ultra campy and totally put a smile on my face. Before I continued on with my morning a chanteuse cutie handed me a chocolate crisp attune bar. I don't know what probiotic means (has something to do with yogurt?), but that's one tasty chocolate bar! I'll have to go read more on their website to see what this is all about.

if you're curious.

PS: Yikes! Two posts about marketing in a row. This whole agency thing must be rubbing off on me.


Pet Peeve of the Week

I saw a new Smirnoff commercial tonight. It shows james bond drinking a martini. The tag line: "Smirnoff vodka, the official vodka of 007". I'm sorry, but there's no way bond drank vodka martinis.
