Where the h- is my gd Coca-Santa? There was a time that the biggest advertisers in the world were McDonald’s and Coca-Cola, in those days we could depend on our annual visit from the jolly, ol’ Coca-Cola Santa – he’s the BEST! I can’t go a half-hour without seeing a high production, flashy, screeching, or obnoxious car commercial – but this year there’s no Santa.
I haven’t heard of Coca-Cola hitting-up Capital Hill for a “bailout“, so if we have to be robbed of Santa in the name of not paying for cola-golden parachutes, then so be it. Here he is for old times sake…ho, ho, ho.

Obtuse Is the New Charming
We’ve all known, do know or will know a charming guy. Most apt to seek out and be wounded by a charming guy are those of us fathered by one. Their prowess in “charm” has likely been honed over many years and many women. Sure they know the coolest places to go and can be fun at parties – but believe me, charm a solid partner does not make. So remember the next time a “charmer” sidles up to you at Yanni’s you’re better off running across the street to Astro-Zombies to find yourself a good man.
Lesson Learned – Charming means, “I’m cheating on you.”
‘Outrageous Fortune‘ starring Bette Miller, Shelley Long, Peter Coyote and featuring the late great George Carlin filmed in several locations all around the state. It’s worth watching for camp, nostalgia, and funny – the old Abq. airport is a major backdrop for a chase – that’s a head trip all on its own.
NY based producers of ‘Wife Swap’ and ‘Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire’ are casting for a new, major network reality show – seeking the most “ripped dude” in NM – all heights, weights, shapes & sizes

Tis the season…from Christmas, to New Year’s Eve straight through to Valentine’s Day she may be anxiously awaiting “The Ring”. Those are the top three dates when she will be anticipating the possibility of “The Ring”. You are also treading the waters of expectation around your anniversary and her birthday – No matter if she says she’s not that kind of girl, she swears she doesn’t need it or want it, EVEN if you’ve agreed on not going in that direction anytime soon – I personally guarantee from approx. 3 months into the relationship on – it crosses at least a teeny-tiny portion of her mind now and then AND “The Ring” industry knows this. Notice the amped up ads they will keep churning out through the aforementioned end of the season – Valentines day. Good luck.
1. A ring is always a nice gift – you don’t have to propose à la ABC’s Bachelor.
2. There is a Recession going on right now, so you can lean on that to conserve on rock size.
3. Just rent ‘Blood Diamond‘
