I am proud (and surprised) to report that I actually watched a LOT of the Superbowl last night. And not just the commercials, the actual game. Who knew, right? I guess because it was an interesting game, not a blowout, but I stayed tuned until the very end. I mean, I WAS flipping back and forth to Rock of Love Bus every once in awhile, which provided for an interesting contrast.

I can do this in my pajamas with my hair sideways, and nobody’s the wiser. That’s nice.
Finally, I missed most of the Superbowl commercials last night, with all my flipping around and trying to get my daughter to bed at a decent hour. But this one, I did see, and liked for obvious reasons:
