Super Sunday is Over, Here Comes Hangover Monday


How about that major sporting event yesterday, huh?  Both, that one team had such an amazing play!  Ok, fine, I only watched the Super Bowl for the halftime show and the commercials.  I spent most of Sunday lying on the couch and watching a "Bring It On" marathon instead.  Try to contain your jealousy.

The biggest news of the night, according to Twitter, was the power outage that derailed the third quarter of the game.  Here are the best tweets of the night - my faves are from Neil deGrasse Tyson.  (BuzzFeed)

Lenny Kravitz was in New Orleans recently (for the big game, perhaps?) when he heard a choir performing one of his biggest hits.  What he did next definitely made their day.  (

Forget flamingos and gnomes - dinosaurs are the cool new lawn ornaments.  Check out Dug the T-Rex - he even likes to dress up for the holidays.  (HuffPo)

This brilliant ad campaign for breast cancer awareness isn't new, but it's fantastic.  And, honestly, anything that gets women to take charge of their health AND offers hot shirtless men is ALWAYS worth sharing, right?  (Pinterest)

One of our very own, Rusty, has written a book about being a working artist in today's music industry.  Check it out - it's available on Amazon!  (Pajiba)

Why make a boring old pizza when you can make this awesome Octopizza??  (Instructables)

Watch in horror as Applebee's PR self-destructs before your very eyes.  Seriously, who thought any of this was a good idea? (R.L. Stollar)

Netflix recently released the full first season of its very own, fully self-produced show called "House of Cards."  Will appointment viewing soon become a thing of the past, replaced by marathon viewing?  (Neatorama)

This is horrifying - the dark side of the Super Bowl (and other large-scale events): sex trafficking.  (NOLA)

Time to stop ducking the camera.  Don't let life's moments slip away while you wait for that weight to fall off, or that haircut to grow out, or whatever is keeping you from striking a pose in your family photos.  (My Friend Teresa)

Here's a sweet little story about a high school robotics club that helped a physically disabled cat.  Yes, this cat is half-robot... world domination can't be far behind!

  1. Not gonna lie, I spent Sunday watching House of Cards and knitting a sweater. Marathon viewing is easier for me since I'm rarely at home during original airings, plus I get more knitting done if I have a continuous "soundtrack". (Why yes, I am a very busy octogenarian, why do you ask?)
