Vocabulary for the day

Today's vocabulary phrase is "Ad Nauseum" - The act of running a TV commercial so many times your sick of seeing it.

That's what the mute button is for.

One that bothers me so much is that "diet aid" for $153.00. I always push "mute" before she can get her spiel in. There are others that are bothersome, but that one really gets to me. - really an example.

There's one where this little girl want's to send a card to her daddy in heaven so they tie a card to a balloon and set it loose.

That one was adoreable... the first five THOUSAND times I saw it.

The Hallmark Channell tends to do this with their upcoming original movies. They start advertising them a full month in advance and then run, and run, and run the ads so by the time the movie comes around your so sick of the adverts you don't want to watch the show.

I never want to hear the phrase "The Long Shot" or that woman singing everything's going to be alright again.

sounds like a good thing that we don't get the Hallmark channel, Raven.

Let's also get rid of John Basedow (6-pack abs) and Kristy Lane advertising CDs of her oldies.

All great reasons that I hardly bother with TV at all. =) The off button is a wonderful thing!
