Sat Jan 26, 2013 at 08:20:12 AM EST



Salutary Saturday, everyone. I am tempted to sleep in. May I, please?

But first I have questions.  If money was no object, where would you retire to? What's the best side dish found in the deli? What is your favorite commercial (of all time)? What is your least favorite/stupidest/most annoying commercial of all time? What is the best love song?

Today's Twitter Stream:

Now let's have some history:

Floja Roja :: The Daily F Bomb, Saturday 1/26

Thanks, but I didn't feel quite right about posting the full comment here (2.00 / 1)
without commonmass's knowledge or permission, and especially not at the top of a thread. However, I did relent later and posted a snippet farther down in another diary. It was late for me and nannyboz kindly offered to continue the updates. I don't know either cm or his partner at all, as we rarely crossed paths online, but this terrible situation has me upset, and I know others are anxious to find out the latest news, which is why I posted at all.

If money was no object, where would you retire to? Not sure, someplace where I can have a beautiful garden, be isolated yet within minutes of a major city, and not have too much sunshine. Also, it needs to be warm all the time, except in December, and then it needs to snow. I'm open to suggestions!

What's the best side dish found in the deli? Baba ganoush

What is your favorite commercial (of all time)? The snuggie, because it spawned this:

What is your least favorite/stupidest/most annoying commercial of all time? Most beer/sports commercials

What is the best love song? Pink, Blow Me

I forgot to say that I want to retire in Sausalito, CA, up on the hill with a view of the bay and The City, in a modernist house with walls of windows. There, done :)

I still can't think of a love song. But that's a good one!

Have a great time today!!!

Going to the city today with the kids (2.00 / 15)
(the city = Chicago) to do some touristy things and stay overnight in a hotel right off Michigan Ave. It is going to drop down to the teens overnight, so I think we will stay in and enjoy the gorgeous view! Maybe we will go to the lounge on the 96th floor of the Hancock and get some hot chocoate if the line isn't too long. Just going to play it all by ear, but we will defintely check out the snow sculptures at Navy Pier.

Have a great day!

good morning! (2.00 / 13)
Hmmm...a lot of unanswerable questions today. Deli's don't make any side dishes better than I do ;) That being said, the one I buy the most is coleslaw, but I usually have to put some extra vinegar in it. Everything in the deli has too much sugar :(

I don't have a favorite commercial (but I am curious to see what others say!). I did like this ad than ran in December. Mainly because I love the Lumineers soundtrack ("Stubborn Love").

I don't have a least favorite commercial, either! There are so many annoying ones, I can't choose!

mmmmmmmm...asparagus wrapped in bacon!


oops (2.00 / 10)
That's delis, not deli's. Gawd, shoot me now ;)

I would retire to Ireland. Mustard potato salad. The VW bug commercial from the 60s where it goes fast it goes slow etc. Any commercial for viagra type products.The Wedding Song by Noel Paul Stookey.

Up at 5 when Merlin had a massive hairball problem all over the house. I think I found everywhere he got sick. The slipcover for the couch is in the dryer.

Hoping the ice melts enough for me to get to Midas to get the front headlight replaced. Fortunately I discovered it burned out before I got pulled over by the police. Sigh.

Other then that working on writing and art all weekend.

Good morning, everyone. (2.00 / 15)
Here are a few answers:

If money was no object, where would you retire to? I would like to spend the winter in Maui. I am happy to spend the rest of the year in NJ.

What's the best side dish found in the deli? summer slaw

What is your favorite commercial (of all time)? Where's the beef?

What is your least favorite/stupidest/most annoying commercial of all time? The car rental (National, I think) commercial that lets you choose the full-sized car for the mid-sized price. I just hate the voice-over saying "You've earned it, business traveler."

What is the best love song? Can't think of one, but my least favorite is Going to the chapel and we're going to get Ma-a-arried by the Dixie Cups.


"You've earned it, business traveler." (2.00 / 7)
That is quite horrible, isn't it?  And so many variations of the same horrible commercial.

The one that really throws me is when the voice-over says, "OMNIPOTENT OF OPPORTUNITY!"  I guess it makes sense if they're using omnipotent as a noun.

Well, I've spent far too much time on that subject!

I'm lucky.

Lord I hate that (2.00 / 6)

If money was no object, where would you retire to?

Winter in Hawaii, rest of year in New York City. Or all year in New York City. Lucky for me, I already live in NYC.

What's the best side dish found in the deli?

Which deli? In a good deli, the latkes (potato pancakes) will be awesome. Pickles are nearly always at least OK - I prefer full sour and also pickled tomatoes.

What is your favorite commercial (of all time)?

I remember an ad from when I was a kid. The screen shows a toy truck (nothing else). Voice over: "At Tonka Truck, we have a simple guarantee: If it breaks, we'll replace it, free, forever. We do ask that you tell us how it broke. One little boy wrote that an elephant stepped on it. Well, we sent him a new truck, but we wondered what would happen if an elephant did step on a Tonka Truck". At this point, an elephant enters, steps on the truck, trumpets, and walks off. Then the truck rolls away.  

What is your least favorite/stupidest/most annoying commercial of all time?

Oh, there is just too much competition! Ads that show women (and it's always women) joyfully doing housework or getting so excited over laundry detergent. Ads that pose gorgeous women in bikinis on products that have nothing to do with gorgeous women in bikinis (e.g. motorcycles; I have never seen a woman in a bikini on a motorcycle). The vast majority of ads for medicines. Ads for perfume that include what I call "stink cards". It's endless!

What is the best love song?

I dunno. But here is what I think is the best love line (from Shakespeare):

"Age cannot wither, nor custom stale, her infinite variety. Other women cloy the appetites they feed but she makes hungry where most she satisfies".

And my vote for the best love poem is also Shakespeare, it is the sonnet starting "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?"

"Most people worry about their own bellies and other people's souls when we all ought to worry about our own souls and others' bellies" Israel Salanter


Tonka commercials (2.00 / 9)

We had Tonka toys growing up. I wonder what my mom did with them. Threw them away, no doubt.

My current favorite love song.....I'm fickle about songs :) Where to retire....Bellingham is very nice, so I think I'll stay.
Deli side.....no gluten usually means no deli food

Commercials....I can usually tune them out, but the men's catheter guy on MSNBC a few months ago drove me crazeeee!

Love is the lasting legacy of our lives


okay, found a love song (2.00 / 13)
Apparently love songs are not my favorite genre or something, but I can live with this one :)

If money was no object, where would you retire to?

Not sure yet, but I'd entertain the idea of moving to Paris without a second thought, to the Left Bank. But then sometimes I also really like the idea of retiring in the South Pacific, just waking up and swimming in perfectly clear water every morning. I'd like to see much more of the world first. The Turkish Coast definitely also has grand retirement possibilities and is stunning, as is Istanbul proper.

What's the best side dish found in the deli?

Dolmas. Pesto pasta with artichoke hearts. Caprese salads.

What is your favorite commercial (of all time)?

What is your least favorite/stupidest/most annoying commercial of all time?

No idea. Don't watch TV. Particularly no fan of commercials.

Such tough questions, but I got one answer... (2.00 / 13)
If money was no object, I would still retire to my beautiful house in coastal North Carolina. Mr. Carolina and I built it in 2009-10, and will be moving there later this year after enjoying it for a few weeks every couple of months so far. We spent 10 years scouting land in the coastal Carolinas until we found this half acre near the Intracoastal Waterway. From our back yard, we can often hear and smell the ocean, about a mile away as the crow/bald eagle/heron/buzzard/pelican flies.

For all you snowed-in, iced-in, frozen-in, or otherwise freezy-cold meeses, we can have a nice barbeque and warm y'all right up ;-)

I was bored at work yesterday and went down a rabbit hole on ancestry.com.  I'm back to the 1500's in the U.S. and making some headway in Australia. Remarkably frustrated with my Irish lineage.  Don't know if the 14-day free trial is going to be enough!

If money was no object, where would you retire to?

If reality was no object I'd live in the remote wilderness in the north woods on a rushing river within a ten-minute bikeride of a major city with a great music scene, restaurants, and museums, and a short walk to a Caribbean beach.

But since that's impossible, Paris.

What's the best side dish found in the deli?

Potato pancakes.

What is your favorite commercial (of all time)?
Right now it's that one for a smartphone where the kid is holding a place in line at the Apple Store for his parents, while he's using another brand. I'm not anti (or pro) Apple products, but I think it's genius.

What is your least favorite/stupidest/most annoying commercial of all time?

I've had it with the talking babies.
