The Morning After

I don't know about you, but my recovery time goes up along with my age. We had a few friends over for the Super Bowl last night, and a)I didn't drink anything and b) I hardly cooked (heating up ham and appetizers from Costco doesn't count). And yet I still feel sluggish and hungover today. I guess it's the staying up late and having to be more social than usual.

I spent part of the morning reviewing the reviews of Super Bowl ads. I don't know about you, but our consensus last night was that there weren't any really memorable ads - remember the Budwieser frogs? Not sure there was an ad last night that everyone was talking about in the morning. And the list of 10 best and 10 worst varied from place to place (including the occasional "my worst is your best", which is always entertaining). There were some very touching ads (Oprah's Jeep am, Budweiser, the Paul Harvey Dodge ad), and some clever ones (I liked the Mercedes sell your should to the devil one), but not much that made us laugh out loud.  Oh well.  It was still fun, and a good game in the end.

And dinner tonight? Maybe those appetizers that I forgot from the freezer...

I'm the Anti-Superbowl person...I've never watched a single football game, nor do I feel inclined to start. Strangely, though, I read all the reports on the commercials and half-time show, so it would seem some part of me still wants to be part of the zeitgeist.
