This is just a fun commercial and I think it deserves to be spread far and wide.
Super Bowl goodness - yay! I enjoyed myself. It helped that I didn't care who won (and I didn't notice Christina Aguliera (however you spell her name) flubbing the National Anthem - maybe I'm bad American or something... Honestly, after all the pre-game festivities and what-have-you, I was ready to get going with the game). The ads were okay. Nothing really stood out - it was all Super Bowl quality stuff (really, I think the only way a Super Bowl ad could get noticed is if it were your basic run-of-the-mill regular season ad. I could have done without all the shameless Glee promos, though. Seriously - I do not understand the draw of that show. Is it just the music? Because the characters are so... WB (or CW, if you like). Really, since "24" was canceled, I don't watch Fox TV shows anymore. They all just seem so shallow and pointless (that being said - I probably would enjoy "House" just because Hugh Laurie is amazingly funny and sarcastic, but I'm not much for squicky medical dramas).
What else - had a great class weekend. Lots of things got done - I feel really good about my chosen field (which, a year into my master's program, is a very good thing). My adviser is working on finding a library to host me in my practicum this summer, which is exciting. I'm going to the Utah Library Association conference in May and I can't wait! But this is a really good story - I was going to ask my classmates if any of them wanted to go in on a hotel room, just to make the cost more reasonable (I'm poor and a little bit cheap at the moment) and three people offered to have me stay at their houses! Plus, there's one lady who's a substitute for the Salt Lake County Library, which would be a great entry-level way for me to eventually get a full-time job. I asked her how she got on there and she told me (she's got kids at home, so she's not going to be doing full-time stuff anytime soon) - then, she said that if a position opened up, I could use her as a reference! I've got some really great classmates. :)
Also - some of my students might go do Region Drama competition in April, which I sort of volunteered to be their coach (still knowing next-to-nothing about drama - beyond having participated in one drama competition when I was in high school, plus directing the Christmas play). It'll be fun... but piled on top of everything else I'm doing this semester (did I also mention I'm planning a baby shower for my sister in May? - yeah, we'll see how my sanity holds up. But really, I'd rather be busy than bored out of my skull like I was last summer. Last summer was pretty crappy (other than being introduced to a certain science-fiction series we all know and love - oh, guess what! I got a TARDIS USB hub from ThinkGeek! It's sitting on my desk now looking so awesome and I love it!)
Last week I also got released from the Relief Society presidency. They didn't have us in for too long, but the other counselor went on a mission and the secretary's getting ready to go and the president's been having family issues she's dealing with... which meant I was more or less running the branch Relief Society for two months. I didn't mind - but I live clear in the heck far away from the rest of the branch, which was really hard for me to do anything. So, the branch presidency reorganized the Relief Society and I am currently without a calling. Well, that's not entirely true - I was told they have something for me to do, but nothing's official yet. Stay tuned for further updates.
I have so much homework to do... except I have at least two teeth that are giving me so much pain and anguish right now. I have a dentist appointment in a few weeks (after I get paid and have a day off from work), until then, Motrin is my friend. I'm just lucky this goes in spurts - I won't feel anything for a while, then it'll just start this shooting pain through my head and giving me a headache. Oy...
