The post-game report

 

Win  

 

In case you were worried sick, I sat through that entire Super Bowl. I was particularly interested in the fact that there were people whose job titles are offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator. 

"What do you do?"

"What's it to you? Leave me alone! I have to get all this stuff together. GEEZ."

"Oh. You must be the defensive coordinator."

Also, I saw those orange carrot-stick-looking things again on the sides of the field. Did you? No one must have had to go pee, because I didn't see anyone using them to head back to the bathroom this time.

Marvin was obsessed that that one football player had such a long name–Rothlessbergerstein or whatever. Names obsess Marvin.

Plus also too, the company I used to work for had an ad during the Super Bowl and it was funny! Go former company!

In other news, you know how I keep losing weight with the migraine drug I am on? How many times have I mentioned it now? How much do you want to throttle my skinny arse? Well, anyway, I am SO THIN, so SUPER SUPER SKINNY, that I finally had to go out and buy a belt. I do not know why it didn't occur to me to buy a belt before this moment but it honestly didn't. 

Belt 

And you know what else? It really held my pants up, too!

Finally, I have a website for you to go to that is crucial. Plus it contains a photo of Lionel Richie. You go on there, and it'll tell you what the number one song was the day you were born. Mine was Satisfaction by the Rolling Stones, which you have to admit is good. Marvin's is Good Vibrations by the Beach Boys. Go on there and report back to me.

At one point, I was sort of hot, in a "she's 27 and probably a 7" kind of a way. Now I'm old and have to develop a charming personality. Guess how that's going.

  3. 1947 – “Mam’selle” by Art Lund??? Never heard of it…or him.
    I found the lyrics at http://www.weddingvendors.com/music/
    A small cafe, Mam’selle
    A rendezvous, Mam’selle.
    The violins were warm and sweet
    And so were you, Mam’selle.
    And as the night danced by
    Your kiss became a sigh.
    Your lovely eyes seemed to sparkle just as wine does.
    No heart ever yearned as much as mine does for you.
    And yet I know, Mam’selle
    Some day you’ll say “Goodbye”
    Then violins will cry, and so will I,
    Mam’selle.
    I’ll have to ask Mom if she remembers that song.
    Elsie…old

Of course, if I was born during Barry Gibb’s heydey I probably wouldn’t have gotten all interested in him and maintained my obsession with him all these years.

    What is particularly astonishing to me, though, is the broad and diverse set of number one songs represented by readers of your blog. Readers span the gamut from ‘my ding a ling’ to ‘rock me ammadeus’, meaning that you are one of those rare individuals that can relate to both middle aged and not so middle aged at the SAME TIME!

    On a happier and prettier note, i became a great uncle this morning. Ryan Patrick Jr. made his grand entrance into the world at 7:35am. He had not yet been weighed and measured when his father called. I guess his mommy had a rough time, or as my nephew said, “she went through hell”. They induced labor at 9:00am yesterday.
    June, you should have a baby, or better yet a small group like the “Waltons”. Yeah, that would be fun!
    It seems like just yesterday i was holding his father in my arms and he pointed his chubby little arm towards the window and exclaimed, “i wanna go to da cunchie cub (country club)”. How can i forget his special knack for always barfing on me when ever i was all dressed up to go out for the evening. When he was a wee boy, he sounded like he was from Jersey. He would say things like “get awf(off)” if you happened to be sitting somewhere he wanted to sit.
    I went and checked baby Ryan’s song and it seem’s like a fun choice also. It is, “My Life Would Suck Without You” by Kelly Clarkson.
