Coffee Talk....




.
Extra large regular coffee with double cream.
With a Senior Discount.... $1.62.




.
Here's something to talk about....
What TV commercial annoy's you the most right now?
For me it's that State Farm dude with that INCESSANT
whistling in the background!
Do any of you have one?




.
Question...
Did anyone remember seeing The Clapper Lady this
past Holiday season?
OMG!!!! Do you think she finally passed away at age 128?

Ha! I only watch TV on DVD or PVR. No commercials! :)

Hey - did I tell you I got a Tassimo? Almost completely kicked my Timmies habit. *Almost*. ;)

Do you have Biggby's in your bit of Michigan? Our friends in Ann Arbor sent us some Biggby cherry coffee for Christmas and it's heavenly!

I have an intense hatred for the phone (?) commercial where the guy gets the joke before everyone else and does this bizarre screeching.

Like Brian -- DVR... however I do have a favorite commercial --- This commercial shows a baby speeding through the desert in a walker. He continues on through the mountains, through the plains and forests. He passes a tanker truck and then continues on through a town weaving in and out of traffic -- perfect visual for this song that I love ...
lyrics
Well, I got a brand new pair of roller skates
You got a brand new key
I think that we should get together and try them out you see
I been looking around awhile (the world)
You got something for me ........

written by folk singer Melanie, which became a novelty hit in 1971-72
The kicker for me is she wrote it in 15 minutes -- Galen do you think any of our 55's will become a signature song/poem/commercial? Just musing...

I DVR too. BUT, occasionally my husband watches something in real time. It's a toss-up between the obnoxious State Farm idiot and the other dufus who roams around renaming the company's jingle. What is it with insurance company marketing folks? Are they trying to scare us away to the competition? I do like Dean Winter as the teen girl who gets him/herself in all kinds of accidents.

One way to avoid annoying ads - don't watch TV. Most books don't have them - except at the back.

I'm old school - really old school

I remember the clapper lady. 128 Wow. I don't watch TV commercials anymore. I just record everything and skip them. I think they all annoy me.

I certainly drink coffee though.

TALON said...

No sightings of the clapper woman...oh oh...she's probably run out of clappability.

I tape all the shows I want to watch so I don't have to get annoyed by any commercials...I can't remember the last time I watched live tv - lol!

I've learned to tune it out -- and/or get up and do something else.

The small green Gecko is still quite annoying- But the price of a great big coffee saves the day- Thanks!

Yvonne Osborne said...

They all irritate the hell out of me and maybe that's why I watch very little tv. That Tax Masters ad is one of the worst. You know...where they tell you they'll help you out of the tax evasion mess you've gotten yourself into. For a pretty penny, I'm sure.

secret agent woman said...

I haven't seen that one. Then again I no longer have television, so that could explain it!

lime said...

i can't even think of an annoying ad right now, probably because i don't get control of the remote often enough to care about even watching tv.

Cocotte said...

I'm still seeing commercials with Christmas music and themes and it's mid-January! Now that's annoying!
