"Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it's much more serious than that.” ~Bill Shankly
I have been woefully neglecting this blog, with everything else going on in the rest of my life: work, grading papers, trying to write, trying to promote. Ahhh!!!
Anyway, who watched the Super Bowl? I'll admit, I wasn't totally engaged, didn't really care who won, though I suppose it was nice from a symbolic standpoint that New Orleans triumphed. We spent the evening at a friend's house - it's a tradition now in its 5th year - though with a 2-year old running around with pom poms it's a little different than it used to be!
Any favorite commercials? I liked the Budweiser - Clydesdale one near the end, and I also thought the "casual Fridays" one with everyone walking around in their underwear was pretty funny. There were a couple of "man" ones (one for Dove for Men soap, one for a car) that were kinda clever too.
Miracle of miracles, we were NOT hit by "Snowmageddon" last weekend - but boy, the South has been walloped this year! I have friends from high school who moved down to VA/MD and they spent the weekend digging out from under 3+ feet of snow. "Just like the good old days..." I told them on Facebook!
Update on my YA novel: I'm at 48K words and have roughly 2-3 chapters to go. It's getting a little sticky, and I know there are some major plot points that need work, but I'm determined to stick it through to the end. Let's hope that happens sometime this week!
