I do feel bad for the people who lost power on Tuesday and still haven't got it back. That BITES. Our furnace died on Christmas eve two years back and we went three or four days without any heat until it could be replaced. At least we had electricity and could run space heaters.
In other news, I made my DH feel bad last night. An insert in the local paper featured one of the Dove pro-age commercials: http://www.doveproage.com/home.asp
I forget what he said. It was something fairly innocent but it had to do with "why the hell are they running THAT in an ad?"
Me? I think it ROCKS. I love their new campaigns. Real Women Have Curves. Beauty Has No Age. And the one with the little girls I find particularly compelling. http://www.campaignforrealbeauty.com/commercial.asp?src=InsideCampaign_commercial
I told my husband "This is the best damn ad I think I've ever seen. These are REAL women, they aren't models, they aren't air-brushed and they aren't false images of what society thinks we ought to look like. I love these ads."
And I do. They certainly make me want to spend my money on their product. I'm 40 years old. I bulge, I sag, I have grey in my hair. I'm ok with that. And I LOVE these ads because they don't say to me that I shouldn't be ok with it. That's awesome.
