Tired and headed upstairs, but wanted to get this out of my head before bed. I had Lifetime on this evening, solely because I saw Kristin Chenoweth's name in a movie description and thought I'd watch a minute. During the ads, they were running spots with Tim Gunn; I assume "witty commentary on the holidays" was the intent. I'm paraphrasing, I admit, but I ran it by my mother who was also in the room, too. The spot was roughly:
"Nothing says I care better than a homemade gift. Unfortunately, nothing says 'cheapskate' better either."
Wow, Tim. Way to seize upon the spirit of giving AND the zeitgeist. I'm pretty sure that's non-denominational stupidity. Second time this year Tim Gunn has made me turn off the television; maybe I should thank him.
Spending *time, love and effort* on a gift is far more important than spending *money*. I'm sorry for anyone who lives in a place where they don't see it that way.
Octopus encounters 101:
Octopus A - We both know one of two things is going to happen; either we're having sex, or I'm going to eat you.
Octopus B - Either way, IT'S ON
While the earlier evening featured mad squid lovin', alas this encounter ended in strangulation and cannibalism. I'll leave the conclusions to you.
I also just heard them say something about "wrasse and cod", and incorrectly auto-filled as "wrasse and khan" . . . x_X;
I'll try to post something of import later, if I can manage to stay awake . . . it will include things not relating to sealife :P For now I'm too distracted by adorable embryonic octopi.
