JCPenney has issued a new Father’s Day ad campaign that really makes me smile. It features a family with two dads. And it turns out this is an actual family, not just actors portraying a gay couple with children.
A lot of Patriots fans have been talking about the new video on Funny or Die by Pats quarterback Tom Brady. Basically, it is all about accents, and of course he doesn’t have one, much less a Boston one. He seems to be a good sport about the whole thing, and I always applaud anyone who doesn’t mind doing some self-parody. Anyway, for all you non-Boston people who haven’t seen it yet, here it is.
OK, so apparently the universe is not done sending me slightly macabre and random stories. This time, I’m OK with this. This one is almost funny.
I got this from Etsy in their daily newsletter yesterday. In small scale it was just confusing and mildly nauseating. When I clicked through to the site it was more confusing and made me want to smack someone.
Well, as Kelly mentioned yesterday, I lost my phone. I am still not entirely sure if it was accidentally dropped and some random person picked it up or if it was actually stolen, but I did file a report with the Boston Police Department. The security software I installed was working properly, as we were able to keep the person who got it from using it. Plus we were able to track it, which was somewhat helpful but also a little annoying. Tracking does not help if the updates are only every five minutes (or otherwise intermittent) and if you are in a very crowded area (which I was). So even though there were times I was literally within 25 yards of it, maybe 10 yards, I could not find it or the person who had it. And the BPD were just not that interested in helping me recover it, which is just annoying. At any rate the battery is probably run down now and I doubt I am getting it back. So until I can get a new phone for next to nothing (June 9th at the earliest) I will have no cell phone. So please don’t call it.
We’re currently tracking it online but if you call him on his cell or text him he’s not going to get the message right now. As he’s at work all day today please call or email me if you need to get in touch. Thanks.
For those of you who missed the North Carolina vote on Marriage Equality and all of the hate and vitriol that it splashed across the internet and airwaves, there is some unfortunate blow back happening now that you can do something about.
I was reading an article on Boston.com about a rather inspired prank pulled by the graduating class at a local high school when this link at the bottom of the article caught my eye. It was one of those, “if you’re reading this article then you’ll like this one too!” type of things.
No, this isn’t Geoff posting.
To continue on our slightly macabre thread from yesterday, I’m following up with this story that popped up on Boston.com the other day. I am hoping that this one won’t generate the Google hits that yesterday’s post did. Traffic we like, really disturbing search terms bringing people here, not so much.
