That Old Navy Commercial!

Is anyone else completely and thoroughly annoyed by that Old Navy commercial, in which a woman who doesn't look to be any older than 30 is surprised by carollers telling her about her COLLEGE son's girlfriend coming to visit? Give me a break.

Then there's that line about stockings: "Nobody really wants an orange in there." When I was a kid, the "foot" of our stockings was always filled with an orange and a bunch of walnuts. We'd then take turns opening the walnuts on my dad's old nutcracker. It was a tradition we looked forward to every year, and to this day I love the taste of fresh oranges and walnuts.

I'll be glad when Christmas is over and we aren't subjected to this commercial anymore. It drives me NUTS.

Carry on.

There really should be a law against Old Navy commercials. period.
I mean have they ever had an ad that wasn't so annoying it's offensive?

The nonconformist arrangement of your blog is okay, but it kept me confused the first couple of times I was trying to read it. I never quite page-downed far enough to find the posts! Guess I'm too old to very quickly jump to any conclusions other than my first ones. I just got through reading many, many of your posts at once and found them to be just wonderful. I felt I had many tastes and interests in common with you. I'll have to come back and read more, more, more until I can get a better picture of you.

Believe it or not, Ron, my layout isn't a result of my nonconformist nature (although I'd love to take credit as such), it's a testament to my HTML illiteracy. I have no idea how it got this way, and no idea how to change it. Anyone who does....TELL ME! And you'll have my everlasting gratitude.

And thanks for the compliments, Ron!
