The world confuses me most days.

Dear Samsung,

I've noticed that you recently have started an advertising campaign partnering you with the 2010 Winter Olympics. That's groovy, and I'm sure the idea is a great one. However airing your commercial on a network that isn't airing the games, means you're advertising to people who aren't watching them. People who don't give a shit about the Olympics.

Does this seem like a valuable investment?

Just sayin',
Jane

P.S. Visa and McDonald's, this goes for you as well.

I just found something you wrote on another blog ~

"You're too close to your life to find it interesting. (It being yours, you must be pretty close to it.) Think of it like a Monet painting. Up close it's boring and seems to make no sense. It's not until you step away from it, that you see the full picture. It's all about perspective."

I love your Monet theory! Such a better wording than you can't see the forest from the trees ~ I hope you don't mind if I use that?

I don't have television service so I haven't seen the commercials or the Olympics. Well, actually, every time I'm at someone's house since the Olympics began, I always walk in on curling ~again. At least four times now. There is a message for me in there somewhere.

Of course you can use my Monet theory! And thank you for stopping by!

I actually love watching curling, because I have no idea what the rules are, and I'm not sure why it's a sport. Let me know if you ever figure out what the curling deities are trying to tell you. (Is "deities" the correct spelling of deity in the plural form? There has to be more than one deity for curling, right? I mean... It's CURLING!)

I am probably of no assistance regarding information re: curling or spelling.

You ask the why of why curling is a sport? I ask, 'who thought of that?' It had to come from some ancient survival necessity ... I mean, why else...??

I had to be told, 'it's curling' because people said, 'oh you were watching curling?'
And I said, 'no. I was watching where they push that huge big disc down the ice really slowly and then fan the ice really quickly.'
And they said, 'you mean, curling...'
And I said, ...

well, you get the picture, right?
