Monday Quarterback – Superbowl Style

Writing daysHappy Post-Superbowl Monday. First, a quick rundown on me and then on to the commercials–or the sad lack of them. 😦

Writing: I spent Friday, Saturday, and Sunday elbow deep in a new project. It’s for a submission. I hope to finish up chapter 3 today, then a tight edit, and submission. If it’s rejected, it’ll still see the light of day so don’t despair. Two new characters in a new corner of the Moonstruck world. Y’all will enjoy Rhys and Celie. Trust me. 😀

Life: I finally got out of my chair and got back on the gazelle yesterday. Thirty minutes worth. Yay for audio books. That’s what I’ll do since I seem to have an audio book going while I have a Kindle or paperback going too–and not always the same book. LOLOL

Okay, Superbowl: I’m #TeamPeyton all the way and I’m thrilled he got this win. I suspect he’ll retire which will make me sad but be a good thing. Congrats to the Denver Broncos!

Commercials: People spent over 4 million dollars on most of those? Seriously?!?! First off,

Dear Budweiser, it sucks donkey balls that there was no Clydesdale commercial this year. That’s like…a HUGE tradition and I feel totally let down and cheated. That said, the Helen Mirren PSA was funny and the whole #NotBackingDown commercial was powerful but…if you blinked, you missed the horses. 😛

Now to the best of the rest, which is hard because the vast majority of the commercials were just…dull. *snooze* The big winners, in my book, were the car commercials. “Borrowing her dad’s car” to the not vegan bear to the Ryan Reynolds (my fave of the series), all made me laugh. Watch for them. Audi’s “The Commander” commercial was a sniffle moment, as was the first Jeep “History” commercial. The Buick wedding made me laugh as did the Kia commercial with Christopher Walken wearing a sock puppet on his hand. The best of the car commercials though was the Toyota Prius bankrobbers. It was one of those multi-part commercials that had me laughing. I also thought the Heinz wiener dogs spot was cute, as were the Doritos dogs.

Here’s a special tip of the hat to Death Wish Coffee’s Vikings commercial. They were chosen as the small company to feature in a Superbowl ad by Intuit. They do the best coffee memes on Facebook and I wish I could buy it locally. Ah well. Maybe they won’t be a small company forever.

Award for the creepiest commercial of the night goes to the “puppy-monkey-baby” commercial that was selling some soft drink. Mountain Dew maybe? I was too creeped out to pay attention.

Back to work for me. For those of you who watched, how was the Puppy Bowl?

  1. Missed the Puppy Bowl, but watched the Kitty Bowl. OMG, cuteness overload. I missed lot of the commercials, too. Unfortunately, one of the ones I saw was the puppy-monkey-baby one. Creepy. It was Mtn Dew’s version of Red Bull, I think. Kickstart? :shrug: Bummer about the lack of Budweiser commercials, but hey, Peyton mentioned the beer twice at the end of the game. “Gonna go drink some Budweiser.” Not sure what that was all about. I think he should’ve given a plug to Papa John’s. “Drink Bud, eat Papa John’s”

    Yay for writing and for the gazelle! Go you! I didn’t do much of jack this weekend. Got one page of edit notes entered – which puts me at pg88 in the book. Thirteen pages of notes left and I have 10 days. I really need to kick my own butt this week. Made the mistake of doing too many stomach crunches at 8pm. Totally regretting both the amount of exercise and the lateness of physical activity today. Must exercise in the morning.

      I always want to adopt all the puppies and kitties so I intentionally miss it. 😆

      And, I finished the three chapters. Tomorrow is a read-out-loud edit and then uploading. 🙂 And I did make 30 minutes on the gazelle today. My calves are KILLIN’ me! 🙄

      Hey, you! Long time, no hear. 😉 Yeah…you might have heard that word. 😀 I’m glad you’re enjoying Lucifer. I love the little devil. 😉 I’ll have to check out Pierce’s books. Hope your doctor appointment is all good! And yay for getting into the healthy thing. I need to do more of it. *sigh*
