It looks like they took it off the air, Yay!

Bud light was running an incredibly stupid commercial which showed three or four fans sitting in the stadium, holding a bottle of Bud Light each, and just before some crucial play one of them says "labels Out" and all but one of them point their bottles' labels out toward the action. Peer pressure makes the final one comply. The tag line is "It isn't weird, if it works".

Why is this a stupid commercial. Answer behind the cut.  Glass bottled drinks are not allowed in stadiums.

Alabama proved tonight that Oregon should have been playing for the championship. Notre Dame's defense was like melted butter, and their offense didn't show up until the 2nd half, and then just barely because the Red Tide defense slacked off.

Work was productive in all the wrong ways.

Lunchtime was spent mailing Seahawks jerseys to my Seattle area sister and brother-in-law. Their last name is the same as one of the players. I ordered this from what I thought was an official Seahawks web site, in plenty of time for Solstice, but it just arrived this weekend. From Shanghai.

Tummy trouble all day, had to duck out of the morning meeting once. I blame the fondue, lots of oils and maybe too much lactose. Two immodium in the morning did not take effect till afternoon.

Kaan is probably going to the vet tomorrow. Even though he ate his wet food with the meds the last 4 doses, not tonight, and he had some tummy problems too. I'll call them when I get up in the morning.

After work I took the non-freeway route to Hooters, which was simple - out of the driveway, turn right, drive a mile, turn right and just follow Lafeyette until it becomes Washington and then N. Bascom and finally S. Bascom. On the map it looks very direct, in the car not so much. Or maybe it was just that it was a lot longer than I thought it would be.

Hooters had the championship game on all TV screens, but after Alabama's 3rd TD the people in my section had stopped watching and started being loud and were laughing uproariously, which was rather annoying when the TV was showing an injured player down. I had a great view of the game, a comfortable seat, and they have expanded the menu so there are more interesting things than wings. The clam chowder was a bit too lemony, the cole slaw too sweet to be edible, the fish & chips fish was excellent, especially with that British stuff on it. Their tartar sauce was too sweet. The key lime pie was too sweet, but I didn't find that out till later because at halftime I got to-go boxes and drove home on the freeways, which was much faster but less direct. It would have been a mess during rush hour, but halftime came after 7 pm, when the HOV lanes are open to everyone and the metering lights are off.

Watched the last half at home, somewhere making a mix of Kaan's wet food and meds, which he ate some of but left most in the bowl.

Halfsheimers. I saw the CD I was supposed to give to my friend yesterday was still on the table by the door.

Missed BASFA. Will miss it again next week as we have our first Brigadoon rehearsal.

I am loving the Samsung Galaxy S3 phone, with one exception. Very poor battery life compared to the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx. Not bad compared to most other phones, 25% charge left after 12 hours.

And now for something completely different:


Plans for tomorrow:
Probably take Kaan to the vet
Work, may or may not get some complex tests done in the lab
