So I've always been a night owl (runs in my family)...and at this point I've effectively established a WAY too late bedtime.

But, it doesn't help that HGTV has back to back episodes of House Hunters on at 1am.

Suzanne Whang, rock on!

Christmas commercials

On the way to Lincoln this morning, I heard 3 radio commercials with Christmas gift ideas:

#1 - Season passes to Knight's Action Park - not so funny if you've never been there, but if you have you'll understand why it is doubtful ANYone would want this.
#2 - Lotto tickets - no joke. The funny thing was that the commercial presented it as the best thing to happen to people who are bad at buying gifts. Or you could throw your money away.
#3 - Mercedes/Benz - who gets a CAR for Christmas?!?

I thought about how this could make for an example of America's consumerization of Christmas...or how people don't give meaningful gifts to the people they love...but I just thought it was funny.
