II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

You wanna know who I can't stand?

Billy Mays
I don't give a crap what kind of cleaner he's selling---Orange Clean, Oxi Clean, Orange Glo...whatever---it does NOT give him a right to YELL at us!
Geeezz....don't those companies know that I turn the channel the minute their stupid commercial comes on and wouldn't want to buy the product JUST because of how much I HATE their commercials?!
Do they really think that by turning up the volume 5 notches on their commercial that it's going to impact me more???
impact-no! frustrate-yes!

We have ads like that over here.

"CILLIT BANG!!! BANG!!!!! AND THE DIRT IS GONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

(And yes, it really is called Cillit Bang!)

And no, we don't buy it either!

I agree - Billy Mays is annoying.

But I'm highly entertained by the guy who does the ShamWow and SlapChop informercials. And I freakin' LOVE the crazy Magic Bullet people. They're hilarious (in a cheesy, I can mock them kind-of-way!)

But I don't buy the stuff. Well, except the Snuggie :)

I know! That guy is SO obnoxious! Easton loves his commercials though. Every time one comes on he stops whatever he's doing and stares at the TV. Probably just trying to figure out why in the heck that guy on TV is yelling at us. :)

His other "favorites" on TV:
The Grey's Anatomy theme song
The Daisy sour cream song
The Ethan Allen commercial w/the drums and flashes of pics of their furniture
Anything to do with Elmo

Can you tell we watch too much TV at our house? :)

we used to have a tv that would adjust volume automatically so you wouldn't hear difference between the show and commercial. We now use tivo so we blast threw the commercials its great.
