I Promised

I know I promised that I would write more then just the BL update and info about my running but the pickings are slim today.

I don't have much except to tell you that I bought crayons for the Lady because she shows entirely too much interest in the writing utensils I use and instead of coloring on the paper I set out for her she tried to eat the crayon and then threw it in the trash.

I am trying to give her things to do so that she can play on her own, however, the only thing that seems to distract her these days is the 1-800-Empire commercials.

800-588-2300 Empiiiire

Try to get that out of your head people. It is an insidious jingle designed to penetrate every nook and cranny of your brain and joins the list of other commercials that have been circulating in my head for months now with no end in sight.

They include:

IO Digital Cable (For all of you Tri-State area people with Cablevision you know what I am talking about) and the "Saved By Zeros" commercial that has run at every single commercial break in every single sporting event that I have watched this year. These are right up there with the Egg song from Sesame Street, Frogs do it. . .

Yeah, like I said, slim pickings today!

  1. Bean - love when I can steal a chance to read your blog. Thought of you and this post today when I came across this article on that horrid Saved by Zero commercial. Apparently, we're not alone.,8599,1860403,00.html
