Stupor Bowl 2013

Monday, February 04, 2013

While TV analysts are busy psychoanalyzing the Supor Bowl and the impact of the power failure causing lights to go out, I thought I'd comment favorably on the things I did NOT eat...

I did not have any soda pop.
I did not have any hot dogs.
I did not have white hot dog buns.
I did not have a second bowl of chili.
I did mkt have a second bowl of "Pimped up Mac n Cheese" (my own creation and I can't tell you exactly what I did, other than add five or six other types of cheeses to two boxes of Kraft Mac n Cheese...).
I didn't have that piece of cherry cobbler (it's in a to-go bowl for "maņana".)

I did not take bowls of chips & dip (crisps for those outside of USA?) into the other room to munch on while waiting patiently for the commercials.


Becsuse I didn't want to get my fingers greasy and that would make my pen and paper greasy.

I was noting the commercials to indicate which were open csptioned, which were closed captioned, which were not captioned, and which were "equal access" (kind of a fine line...).

Okay we are home now. I gotta text my mom and let her know we are home now.

    Not during the Super Bowl, but during a Pats' regular season game, I got the munchies. I ate 4 pounds of fruit. Expensive, but within calories (actually, points in those days) allowance. emoticon

    Congratulations, Julia! That sounds awesome! I didn't drink soda either. I did overindulge however.

What is the difference between things that are open captioned and closed captioned?
I never realized there were two types before.

    Stupor Bowl! BWAHAHAHAHA That's what I called it as well! I am not such a huge fan of football anyway, but I do love the commercials. Not so enthralled by the 1/2 time show (someone tweeted that maybe next year they should have the Muppets on Ice for entertainment! LOL )

Good for you that you were successful while still being able to socialize and enjoy. I just kept sparking while watching the game, and drank my sparky water. Did have a veggie and fruit platter mixed in amongst the "junk" everyone else wanted. But, surprisingly, I felt no temptation to eat what I shouldn't for me. Yeah!

HUGS and good Monday to you, sweetie.

    I didn't watch the super bowl this year, so I was lucky to not have any temptations. I made a buffalo chicken casserole, though, so I wouldn't miss out on the flavors of the game!
