I don’t know about you, but I am laughing hard about the storyline in this “Christmas” event. A couple of years back, the Interwebs were abuzz with the audacity of the Gracie writers to have a Pagan Christmas. And now…well, if I am reading ahead in the storyline that we were sent by their female version of “Bob,”…you may come to a place where Pagans are the least of your worries.
But, let me assure, you…it is funny stuff. Really funny stuff.
Almost as weirdly funny as the coincidental way that this update hit, with it’s references to Alien spacecraft, during the same week that a so-called “reliable source,” leaked that the US Government had cut a deal, to work with the Space Federation…for “experiments.”
I hate to say it…but that may actually put me at ease in a weird way, knowing that reality has seemed like a bad Sci-Fi movie, with more than a handful of crazy, archvillain types to keep the headlines abuzz.
I’m not one to mince words. The Super Bowl did NOT turn out the way I had hoped it would. It has been one of those years. Almost none of my “hopes and dreams” have gone the way I had hoped or dreamed this past few months (at least the Cubs won the World Series!). But this Super Bowl put the icing on the cake. What was a “sure thing” at halftime, turned into the biggest turn-around-come-from-behind-victory in Super Bowl history. And not the way I was hoping.
The only good thing, is that the Ugh-boot-skinny-jeans-wearing (some would add cheater) Tom Brady is being asked to retire now by his super-model wife. One can hope.
BUT…in the midst of this debacle, was one of the most amazing half-time shows ever. It was insanely entertaining, with Lady Gaga starting off by singing “God Bless America” from the top of the stadium, and then jumping off into mid-air in with a harness…suspended from cables…to finally land on the stage below, where she KILLED it.
It was amazing…and eerily familiar.
No…I’ve never done that. I look silly in spandex and sparkles. But as amazing as it was, I couldn’t shake the feeling that I had seen it before…
