First, a little business: I have made private the drama post. I appreciate all your comments so much, but it was getting just a little too much traffic, and I’d like the train-wreck traffic to end. I don’t want this blog to be about that. I’m leaving the original drama-inspiring post up because it’s still relevant and because in light of this article, it’s especially relevant, but I’ve closed comments.
Okay, now onto the fun stuff.
J and I aren’t football fans. I’ll watch it a little if I’m around my brother, but mostly I find it boring. Much of that probably stems from a lack of understanding of a game where grown men run into each other on purpose, but then I play games where I hit balls with sticks, so who I am to judge? When we break games down, they are quite silly, and perhaps that’s why I just don’t like to watch sporting events, especially televised sporting events.
All of that said, we don’t watch the Superbowl. There have been many Superbowl Sundays when we were happily oblivious to its existence. Just last year, for instance, we were moving into our new place on Superbowl Sunday. During the past few years, though, we have discovered the Puppy Bowl. If you have never seen this delightful display of canine cuteness, tune into the Animal Planet during the Superbowl. You will find adorable puppies playing, eating, napping, and just generally doing what puppies do. Not to be missed, also, is the kitten half-time–typically a sort of disco event. The kittens don’t get on as well as the puppies do, but they have a grand time with the strobe lights, confetti, and other kitty toys.
This year, while I am certain that we will tune into the Puppy Bowl, we also plan to watch movies galore. I had hoped to find a good TV show marathon, but I’m not a fan of I Love Lucy nor The Closer. I don’t yet know what we’ll watch–probably some romantic comedies or girl power flicks (too bad we just finished a full season of the L Word, or we might watch more of that). Anyway, our plan is to indulge in tasty snacks; I’m going to watch J enjoy some beer (sparkling water for me), and we’re going to make a day of it with our very own Unsuperbowl.
