super duper!

Okay, I'm still head down in my manuscript. My deadline is today (not kidding) and I'm not finished yet (not kidding) but I'm doing my damnedest.

I'd like to give a boistorous Shout Out to Gemma Halliday and Cara King for filling in for me the last two weeks while I was trying (and obviously failing) to finish my book and meet my deadline.

Last night while I was frantically writing my fingers to the bone, I completely ignored the Superbowl in the background. And by "completely" I mean "sorta." How can you expect a girl who loves football to ignore the Grand Poobah of football games? And then there are the commercials. I am a sucker for Superbowl commercials. A girl can only be expected to ignore so much.

The game was amazing. Especially the last quarter. Wow. Incredible.

The commercials? Eh. There were two that struck me. (two other than the movie commercials. I am totally stoked about Land of the Lost and Fast and the Furious! Vin Diesel and Paul Harris!! Together! In hot, fast cars!!!! EPIC WIN!)

Speaking of Epic Win. The commercial I loved:

I am not a Pepsi fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I'm a huge MacGruber fan from SNL. This was fantastic...especially since the real MacGyver is an assistant. :)

And the Epic Fail commercial:

Dear Teleflora,
Do your research. It doesn't matter if your flowers are assholes when they are delivering cliched messages about romance novels. What matters is that your target audience is female, and of those females, a large portion of them (possibly a majority) read the romance novels you so stupidly disparaged. Bad Teleflora. I'll stick to Thanks.

Did y'all have a fave?


  1. Oh, I missed both of those!(where was I?) I did see a couple of other Pepsi commercials that were a hoot. But no matter hard they made me laugh, I'll always be a Coke girl;)

  2. Teleflora sucks. Proflowers is the way to go!

    The Pepsi commercials (or at least one similar) was on SNL this weekend. Stupid, but I still laughed.

    What about the one second Miller High Life ad (yet - 1 second)? Did you see it?

    Teleflora can kiss my b*tt

    The E-Trade baby...still love. There was two different ones, but I remember liking the second one more than the first one.

  4. good lock finishing today!!

  5. That Teleflora commercial actually made me squirm, it was so offensive. Ick.

  6. I agree. I couldn't believe how offensive that commercial was. SHAME ON YOU, Teleflora...but I'm sure ProFlowers is thanking them for the business! ROFL

    ((hugS)) good luck on finishing that ms!!

    I immediately thought of you when I saw that Pepsuber commercial last night. Seriously, it was hi-lar-ious, but I wonder if it necessarily worked well. You had to not only remember MacGyver (and many people today, especially teens, won't) but also had to have seen the SNL skits.

    But still, hi-lar-ious! I nearly died laughing.

    Good luck finishing! I know it will be awesome.

  8. My favorite part about Super Bowl Sunday? The lack of traffic and crowds for those of us who ignored the TV and went out! :-)

  9. Yah, I left Teleflora a note on their blog but they must be editing them, it didn't show right away.

    I did see some familiar names there, though, and not a single positive response.
