SPOILER ALERT: Superbowl Ad Embedded

It's official: I hate this commercial. HATE IT.

Were I was shopping for a new car Right Now Today?
I'd seriously consider it. Very seriously. In fact, it might be my odds-on fave.
But this commercial makes me RETCH.

It's behind the cut )

The Last Weekend Before the First Chemo was spent getting her out where she won't want to go.

Friday night we had a Mall Dinner for the first time since this all started. Also came to a horrible realization: Mall dinners aren't expensive simply cuz they're expensive, but mostly cuz I'm a High Maintenance Beeyatch when I eat there. My meal + dessert was almost three times that of Brenda's. Awkwarrrrrrrrrrrd.

I'd told B there were occasionally good Pokeys there. Didn't look so lucky after dinner. Then we found a new entertainment spot with indoor go-karts.

Just as we were gonna watch some racing...A LAPRAS.

Well, not quite. A Lapras appeared on the radar, but it wasn't in the front entry as people expected. B told me to do THIS and told me to do THAT and I tuned her out and did what a good hunter does 'till I actually found him in Sears. Then B's cheap-ass tablet locked up. *SIGH* What a day.

Saturday saw me up @ 6 in the morning (slept in!) and running on the treadmill, then off to work for a bit of overtime, then back home in time to get B off to Shakopee for an old-school Saturday Mystic Brunch. Never mind the crowds and the smoke. I have no idea when she'll wanna get in a swimmie after her second surgery for Valleyfair. Much less tolerate jostling around in a horsecollar restraint.

Then off to B's Favorite Place to Pokey Evar™ 'till I almost caught enough Magikarp for a third Gyrados.

But by day's end I was crabby and out of sorts and butt-tired and not the good company I coulda been.

Try again today...?

- First off, I can't imagine my chemo caretaking experience can be any worse than that football game. Cuz dayum.

- Most of the commercials sucked, too. Except AirBnB and a few others here and there.

Oh, and ALSO Snoop Dogg, Martha Stewart, T-Mobile and non-stop marijuana references. THEY WIN THE GAME.

Speaking of chemo? The Cheap Ass 10-inchers won't download Netflix and I don't know why.
So I'm loading my LeNovo Tab 2 A10-70 tablet instead, since it's the least expensive (read: easiest to replace should it vanish under suspicious conditions).


Seriously tho. It's a really nice tablet. The display is nice, the sound's not bad *cough*ATMOS*cough* and if you catch Office Depot on a good week--not even Black Friday--you can nab one for about $150. It'll update to Android 5 the minute you pull it from the box, it will actually charge from a single-amp portable battery (try that on a new Samsung product...good luck!) which means you can play video on a flight for pretty much an eternity.

But speaking of playing video forever and specifically that...any suggestions for What To Watch During Chemo? IMPORTANT: Note the words 'During' and 'Chemo.' This is NOT the time for one of those damned girly tearjerkers--and ESPECIALLY that Tragic Dying Shit. No no NO no NO! I won't unfriend you should you suggest one. Nope! How 'bout I hunt you down instead? Okay! Friendly face! Breathe easy, I think they get the point!

Here's my list so far. You'll note certain leanings in my selections.

Donald Glover: Weirdo
Kevin Hart: I'm a Grown Little Men
Garfunkel and Oates: Trying to be Special
Aziz Ansari: Buried Alive
Aziz Ansari: Live at MSG

Maz Jobrani: I'm Not a Terrorist, but I've Played One on TV
Chef (movie)
The Wiz
Eddie Griffin: You Can Tell 'Em I Said It
Gabriel Eglasias: Hot and Fluffy

First three episodes of the following

Chef's Table

An Idiot Abroad (think we've watched the first ones)

I'm open to any more ideas. Within the aforementioned no-nos.
