State of mind: slightly annoyed
One of my biggest pet peeves as a couch potato is the stupid commercial.
The one that is getting on my nerves lately is the Social Contract Breaking Chi Chi’s salsa commercial. I’m sure you’ve seen it. A woman dressed in scrubs opens the break room refrigerator, spots the Chi Chi’s salsa, sees that someone has put their name on it and ROLLS HER EYES as she takes it for herself. Then, confronted by the very person whose salsa it really is, she plants a kiss on him and walks away with the jar. What does this commercial really say? Stealing is ok? Whoring yourself out for free food is acceptable? What? As someone who has had my lunch stolen from the company fridge, I don’t really find the humor in the commercial at all. And if any of my co-workers had tried planting a kiss on me as payment for stealing my lunch, they’d end up in a body cast.
Which is as clumsy a segue your going to get for the next bit I’m blogging about today:
A Killer Within is on tonight on the Lifetime Channel at 9 EST. I haven’t seen it, but I think Sean Young ends up dead. That alone should make it worth it. ;) Also, it has Ben Browder, (from the very awesome show Farscape.) You all remember him, right? He was my ‘hottie of the week’ on June 23rd of last year. It also has C. Thomas Howell, who is either more famous for The Outsiders, or those creepy Hitchhiker movies. I’m not sure which. But I do know my sister had his face plastered all over her walls when we were kids. I think I blackmailed her into taking them down. Ahh… memories.
Good luck NASA. Sometime today they launch New Horizons which should take about a decade to get to Pluto for a 'fly by'. You can watch the launch on your computer if you like. (It isn't like you're working anyway, is it?)

Spike: Oh, old broody-pants got you wound up, eh? Keep in mind; he can't get laid without maybe going crazy. Makes it funny.
