I'm a bit spun in a circle with Sparky's theater performance this weekend, Thanksgiving and two house guests next week, and throwing a family party for 50+ people that Saturday night, all while we are going through a mouse infestation with three dogs in the house. My house smells like mouse poop and regret and looks like an Occupy Wall Street encampment.
I'm so excited to share this. I wish I could say I had anything to do with it, but not a thing. It's a TV commercial for Doritos that my friend Robb Ross and his son Cody made, after work and on weekends (the idea was Cody's). It's their entry into the Doritos "Crash the Super Bowl" contest (make a Doritos TV commercial for a chance to win $25,000). I think they have an excellent chance.
Here's the link, but you'll probably still have to type the video name into the search bar at the bottom of the page.
Sparky and Smedley had outstanding report cards today. Smedley called me to tell me about hers after school. I found out about Sparky's on the ride home. We drove up Grandma and Grandpa's driveway to go get Smedley, who had been hanging out with them.
"Go into the living room, Sparky, and tell Grandpa about your report card. He's got something for you," said Grandma. Into the living room went Sparky, dragging her feet in advance of the ceremony to come.
"Here's a nickel for math, and here's a quarter for reading," said Grandpa, dropping coins into Sparky's hand. "And here's another nickel for being lucky, and here's a dime for not having hair in your eyes. A dime for not being married. Here's a penny for being lucky again. A quarter for a trip to Hawaii, and here's a dime for not having a stinky diaper tonight, and here's eleven cents, for no reason."
Report card season is always interesting in Fooleryland.
