*It was my turn to blog at the MBT Ponderers today! That is a real blog post with a real point! Check it out here.
*I'm sick. Again. Oh, faithful immune system, why have you turned on me? Only good thing about being sick? The excuse to lay in bed and watch random television shows on my laptop. My newest discovery? BBC's Lark Rise to Candleford. It's such a cute show - gorgeous scenery, enjoyable (if not slightly predictable) storylines and quirky characters.

But anyhow, it's been rectified, the commercial has been viewed, my commitment to Old Spice has been renewed. Without further ado, Old Spice's latest product of genius:
