Today I am taking a cue from Alexandra, Katie, and many others by sharing a round-up of recent favorites.
Cookie Monster Commercials
Adam and I both busted out laughing when we saw this commercial:
We both think this should have been a Super Bowl Commercial!
And speaking of cookies...
Adventures in Girl Scout Cookies
When Girl Scout cookies go on sale each year, I've long been a captive devotee to Thin Mints. My motto was, "All Thin Mints and only Thin Mints, all the time!"
Hello, my lovelies:
I can't believe I'm saying this, but the Savannah Smiles are going to give the Thin Mints a run for the money in the future. Ladies and gentlemen, the tide has turned. I am in a world of trouble!
Finnish Hockey Players
I've previously mentioned that through Adam's influence, the Pittsburgh Penguins are my second favorite hockey team behind the Chicago Blackhawks. My favorite Penguin used to be Max Talbot until he left in 2011. Since then I never found a true new favorite Penguin... until now!
Please give a warm blogger welcome to Olli Maatta (Finnish: Olli Määttä - shout out to Pete for nailing those umlauts!):
I watched several of Olli's interviews and videos. In my opinion, hockey players are generally very down-to-earth - but Olli is exceptionally genuine and considerate. He strikes me as someone who would make you feel super comfortable from the moment you met him.
It's going to be so much fun to follow Olli in the coming years!
|Olli and his bobblehead look-alike. So cute!
In my opinion, this is far and away the best show on free television right now. The story is chilling, riveting, and masterfully thought-provoking. There are so many plot lines to think about.
Who else is watching? If you are, please let me know so we can talk about it. There is A LOT to discuss.
During TV player introductions, Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor would say he went to Swaggin' University.
Here's an example. Ike comes on around the 12-second mark (note the commentary at the very end, too).
Adam and I were joking about how for our own personal usage, we'd change it from "Swaggin'" to "Snoozin'." =D
Then I randomly came across this video in which Ike explains the credentials for getting into Swaggin' U:
You got it, buddy! Next time, I am going to try washing and folding my clothes with swag.
Linking up with Mar, Cynthia, and Courtney for the Friday Five.
