I like the one with the bear catching smartphones

This new range is giving me a serious case of first world guilt. Maybe I should capitalize that, so it can get recognized as a real, no-foolin' disease and I can get prescribed some Absorpistat for it (a name of my own creation, indicating a credible name for a drug that would make you oblivious to anyone's sufferings but your own).

I was wondering: do owls really live in hollow trees? I've never seen one in the wild. I hope they don't live ONLY in hollow trees, because, man. You need to be more adaptable than that. Are owls considered apex predators? These are the questions I have.

I had to go to the dentist today because I have a wiggy tooth that apparently has nothing wrong with it except for I've ground away my gums with exuberant brushing and exposed the root. It would be so sweet if I have to get another gum graft, as it is in my top three worst life experiences.

We watched some Superbowl commercials last night. What a frigging letdown. I seriously hate CGI talking babies. That may have been the lamest batch of Superbowl commercials of all time. Remember the one about herding cats? That was rad. Here's the grizzly bear one (Did you know that polar bears are the largest of all bears, except for Kodiaks? I saw the wooden cutout at the zoo in Portland.):

And the cat one:

Good times.

I have seen one owl in the wild. At girls camp last year we had an owl nesting in our repelling fort (one of the structures in our amazing ropes course). Every day my job was to teach girls to repel (John should be proud since he is who taught me) and I got to hang out with this fuzzy, cute, but screechingly loud owl. Seriously, he was fuzzy and cute but MEAN! He actually attacked one of my YW. She is a total jock and tough but she was pretty freaked out by a predatory bird flying at her face and screeching its head off. Who can blame her, really?

So, now you know...

We were just talking about the herding cats commercial days ago. One of the funniest commercials, ever. The bear stinks. I slept through most of the super bowl. I watched the half time and 3rd and most of the 4th quarter. There wasn't anything memorable in that time frame. But then, I'm not their market.

Whoops, sorry, you can like the bear commercial all you want. At least it wasn't that fox woman....

Flip, that herding cats business is hilarious.
