1. A few of you have wondered how the no-smoking is going. Well, I’m pleased to report I haven’t had so much as a puff in four weeks now…and really no desire to have one in that time. So I guess that means (for everyone but Marlboro) that it’s going well.
2. It isn’t often that I get to share with you a talent (*snicker*) so rare as what follows, but I really think this guy has what it takes (if not to be a dancer, then at least to be a much-forwarded internet sensation…LOL!):
Tony the Dance Machine is, well, a dance machine who performs in my area. I’ve never had the honor of seeing his act live, but some friends report that he was a dancing fool at a beach party over the weekend. According to his personal website: “When I dance, I forget everything around me. I only feel the music and my body starts moving by itself. I become a part of the song. I merge with the music. Then I draw the client in and make them come alive. I promise you an experience that you’ll never forget. Trust me, I love what I do.” And if you’d like to see more of what it is he does, CLICK HERE. (I am not responsible if the laughter that follows leads your family, friends, or coworkers into thinking you are a bit touched–but I do encourage you to forward Tony to anyone in your inbox who needs a laugh)
3. So last night was the Super Bowl. If I were to write down everything I know about football, there would still be enough room for a fortune and today’s lucky numbers on it. But, I was rooting for Pittsburgh–it’s the closest pro team to where I grew up. And not only that, but their police department very kindly didn’t arrest me once when I drove a big Lexus through a tunnel that was clearly marked for bus and trolley traffic only. Even with my pathetic knowledge of football, I managed to get a little excited over that 100 yard thingy that they did.
4. I usually watch the Super Bowl for the commercials, and while none of them stuck out as particularly good this year, one did stand out as completely stupid, The Pepsi MacGruber one.
