The post-game report

 

Win  

 

In case you were worried sick, I sat through that entire Super Bowl. I was particularly interested in the fact that there were people whose job titles are offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator. 

"What do you do?"

"What's it to you? Leave me alone! I have to get all this stuff together. GEEZ."

"Oh. You must be the defensive coordinator."

Also, I saw those orange carrot-stick-looking things again on the sides of the field. Did you? No one must have had to go pee, because I didn't see anyone using them to head back to the bathroom this time.

Marvin was obsessed that that one football player had such a long name–Rothlessbergerstein or whatever. Names obsess Marvin.

Plus also too, the company I used to work for had an ad during the Super Bowl and it was funny! Go former company!

In other news, you know how I keep losing weight with the migraine drug I am on? How many times have I mentioned it now? How much do you want to throttle my skinny arse? Well, anyway, I am SO THIN, so SUPER SUPER SKINNY, that I finally had to go out and buy a belt. I do not know why it didn't occur to me to buy a belt before this moment but it honestly didn't. 

Belt 

And you know what else? It really held my pants up, too!

Finally, I have a website for you to go to that is crucial. Plus it contains a photo of Lionel Richie. You go on there, and it'll tell you what the number one song was the day you were born. Mine was Satisfaction by the Rolling Stones, which you have to admit is good. Marvin's is Good Vibrations by the Beach Boys. Go on there and report back to me.

  1. Evidently I’m the same age as Lazy Mom Leslie, because my song is also Night Fever by the Bee Gees. I’m sure June is jealous, with her Barry Gibb loving self. Night Fever was evidently number 1 for 8 weeks.
    My husband’s song is (Shake, shake, shake) Shake Your Booty by K.C. and the Sunshine Band which is hilarious, since he has no booty at all.
    And our wedding day was Crazy in Love by Beyonce (awww)

  2. I am TOTALLY jealous of anyone who gets a Barry Gibb song as their song. Of course, if I was born during Barry Gibb’s heydey I probably wouldn’t have gotten all interested in him and maintained my obsession with him all these years. So I guess it’s better to have been born 14 years before his heyday. As they say in Slumdog Millionaire, things happen because they are written.

  11. Mine was “Groovin'” by the Rascals. If I had been born two days later I would have had “Respect” by Aretha Franklin, which would have been more awesome, in my opinion.
    Ok really? Blondie? Duran Duran? Bryan Adams? Are you people even old enough to be using the internets?

  15. 1947 – “Mam’selle” by Art Lund??? Never heard of it…or him.
    I found the lyrics at http://www.weddingvendors.com/music/
    A small cafe, Mam’selle
    A rendezvous, Mam’selle.
    The violins were warm and sweet
    And so were you, Mam’selle.
    And as the night danced by
    Your kiss became a sigh.
    Your lovely eyes seemed to sparkle just as wine does.
    No heart ever yearned as much as mine does for you.
    And yet I know, Mam’selle
    Some day you’ll say “Goodbye”
    Then violins will cry, and so will I,
    Mam’selle.
    I’ll have to ask Mom if she remembers that song.
    Elsie…old
