Super Bowl Sunday

Super Bowl means commercials. Here are my favorites as I see them.

Oh, and Go Pack Go!

Doritos - Man is left to house sit while his friend is gone. He was given two instructions: Feed the fish and water the plant. A few days later, the man realizes his friend is coming home soon only to realize the fish and the plant have both died. The solution? Feed them Doritos of course! Not only do they magically come back to life, but so does the friend's cremated grandfather. Personally, I had almost forgotten Doritos even existed. Maybe they'll bring my diet back to life.

Packers score touchdown numero dos on an interception!

Volkswagon - Little boy thinks he is Darth Vader. After many failed attempts of using "The Force", he finally succeeds when the car turns on at his direction. All of this thanks to dad using the car remote. Very cute. Very nerdy. Probably Ben's fav so far.

Halftime show - I love the Black Eyed Peas. I love them more with each new album. Their songs just keep getting better. And they definitely know how to put on a good show. And I like that Fergie is like your real American woman and isn't uber skinny, but she still has a body I would kill to have. Plus, she knows the words to the songs (Christina). And then a surprise drop in by Usher. What?! The only thing that could have made the halftime show better would have been an appearance by the Biebs.

I take that back. Bieber made an appearance in a Best Buy commercial, along with Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne. The Biebs takes over Ozzy's job of promoting ever improving "G's". I knew we couldn't make it through a whole Superbowl without a little Bieber fever.

Detroit, don't let that Chrysler commercial go to your head. You are still the trash hole of America.

Oh, and what a finish to the game! Congrats Packers! Although, I must say, the Lombardi Trophy is no Stanley Cup. I guess an inferior trophy for an inferior sport.

Famous Friday: Twitter

Imagine Facebook without apps or a 10 page profile or pretty much anything except for the status, and you have Twitter. Twitter has made it cool to update the world in 140 characters or less. It has also made it possible for us lowly $9/hour human beings to "hang" with our celebrity idols. So many celebrities are notorious for their Twitter use such as the Kutcher couple.

At first, I thought Twitter was stalkerish. And I still do. I mean, you can follow people without there being a mutual following. Ben has explained to me the Followers to Following ratio. You want to have more people following you than you have people you follow. 

I have started a Twitter account on Wednesday in an attempt to get my name and face out there. Hollywood doesn't even know I exist yet, but they will. I know it will take a while to get started, so I have set a small(ish) goal to start. I aim to hit 1000 followers by Dec. 31, 2011. My Twitter username is: RachelleRae. So follow me, then tell all of your friends and family. It'll be fun. I promise. 

P.S. I am still learning how to use the Twitter, so please excuse me.

Snow Day

Growing up, we rarely had snow days. Wisconsin was always prepared (too prepared, in my opinion) for the snow. I finally started getting snow days when I attended undergrad at Ohio State. But this year, I have gotten more snow days in the past month than I have the rest of my life combined. Not that I'm complaining.

Back when I used to have a car that I would have to keep parked outside, I would be one of those moaning about more snow. Now that I don't have to worry about cleaning up a car or shoveling a driveway, I have no problem with the snow. The more snow the better. I love time off from school. Although, I will have plenty of time off from school in 3 1/2 months. I like to think of it as practice. Anyways, I love being able to truly enjoy the snow, particularly before the cars start to abuse and pollute it. I feel like a child again when I kick up the fluff or toss it in the air.
