Depeche Day Ever

On Saturday, I drove over to the English's to meet Tom and Jess to watch fireworks at Holladay Elementary. On the way over, I heard "Somebody" by Depeche Mode on the radio. After we finished watching the fireworks, I was dropped off at my car and was greeted by "I Just Can't Get Enough," after turning the ignition. What are the chances that I would turn the car off to Depeche Mode and turn it on to the same group? 100%. Now, if only that story were as cool as their outfits.

Billy Mays and the Age of Infomercials

Even though Billy Mays was not my lover, he was loved in the world of infomercials. He really was loud and convincing, from OxyClean to the Ding King to ESPN.

I think I would actually be good at writing infomercial scripts. I'd have catchy lines like, "Tired of your cat pulling down the table cloth?"

*Show black and white video of cat using claws to pull down table cloth causing dishes crash on the floor and break into pieces. Camera changes to frustrated woman standing at door entryway pulling her hair in frustration while shaking her head*

The pitchman then introduces the "Table Cable" or something else completely worthless.

As funny as infomercials are, though, I'm a total sucker for buying stuff from infomercials. For example, I purchased the "Nicer Dicer" which turned out to not be as nice as I had hoped, but what can you do? I'm actually pretty sure that it works well, I just have only used it once on a super squishy tomato, so of course it didn't work.

I also purchased (my personal favorite) the "Snuggie." Yeah, don't be jealous, it is as comfortable and convenient as it looks. No more having to lift my hand out of the blanket to change the channel. Now using the remote control is a cinch! I will say, though, that my favorite part about the Snuggie is the reading light that came with it. No joke. It's much more useful than the Digital Reminder. Worthless p.o.j.

I'm pretty sure that the new free gift that comes with Snuggies is the Baby Snuggie Vest. It looks ideal for a cool autumn hike, eh?
P.S. Stay tuned for pics of me in my Snuggie.
