Grinning while blogging

I love my wife. She does little cute things, which just make me smile.

Like right now, she is writing a blog. And whenever she does that, she has this little grin on her face. She really enjoys blogging and I can tell whenever she is doing it.

Its such a different face than when she's writing a long email to the parents in our kids' classes or scheduling something on her calendar.

It's clear that she likes it and is having fun.

No pictures. Its too early on a Sunday morning, you'll just have to trust me on this one.

The Call of Cthulhu

My wife has succumbed to a new evil...

She has discovered Hulu. It bills it self as helping "people find and enjoy the world's premium video content when, where and how they want it."

She's finding it, alright, "in the midst of black seas of infinity; and it was not meant that we should voyage far."

Funny ad sequence

I was returning from voting today and I heard an ad on the radio for the new Triple Steak Burrito at Taco Bell.
The "benefit" that this burrito brings is Steak, Steak and more Steak. It's steak, flavored with steak, topped with more steak.

It sounds pretty good.

The ironic thing was the next ad.

"Are your triglycerides high? Can you spend up to 2 weeks in a clincal trial?" A medical testing clinic here in the Northwest is trying to round up volunteers for some clinical trial. They need the people that eat the Triple Steak Burritos.

So, they guy who schedules the ads either has a great sense of humor or is a great marketer, as these two ads complement each other. Talk about hitting the target audience.
