This week marked the umpteenth annual Corporate Challenge. I’ve participated in it several years now and it’s usually a good time. A who’s who of Buffalo businessmen and women, it’s great mingling, great boozing and a great atmosphere. It’s also great people watching. Here are the top five sights I saw this year:
Last week, my friend surprised me with a ticket to NKOTBSB. I had previously turned down a ticket three times due to money-saving antics. (It was hard. Very hard. And yes, that’s what she said.) But one of the concert-goers had to back out and I was in.
Now, I had seen NKOTB twice before, and while I was never a true Backstreet Boys fan (I could only name one of them), I did like some of their songs. So, when I got the ticket, I was ecstatic. And going to the show with five of my 30-year-old-plus girlfriends for a night of nostalgia, well, you just can’t beat that.
It always surprises me when I hear people say Sunday is their favorite day of the week. Sure, I love the relaxation Sunday brings, but it’s not that relaxing when you have to think about the week ahead of you.
That’s why I’m totally ecstatic for today. Memorial Day weekend means the start of summer. It means I finally have a truly relaxing Sunday. Plus, it means it’s the first day off most of us have had since New Year’s. Isn’t that sad? (It’s even sadder when you realize on New Year’s Day that you won’t have off until the end of May.)
Unless you’ve been in a hole somewhere, you’ve heard the story surrounding Arnold Schwarzenegger and his infidelity. While the adultery wasn’t that much of a surprise in this day and age, his mistress was.
Let me start off by saying that I’m nowhere near beautiful, nor do I have a perfect body. But have you seen Mildred Baena? In the words of Kevin McAlister in the hit movie, “Home Alone,” “Buzz, your girlfriend. Woof!”
Yesterday, I shared a terrible ad. (Did you have nightmares?) Today I’ll share one of my new favorites. It’s actually a campaign and, in my opinion, it’s brilliant. A little disturbing, yes (especially the one linked to this blog), but awesome.
I admit, I have a soft spot for advertising. While I constantly fast forward through commercials, there are occasions when I stop to watch. It’s either the really good or the really bad that usually catch my eye (and, of course, the ones with the cute animals).
I’ll admit, I had a teeny tiny part in the re-branding in the beginning, so I was lucky enough to get an invite to the unveiling on Tuesday. I sat in a room, taking in the new campaign for the first time. Call me a loser, but I got misty-eyed when watching it come to life. I loved what I saw. It made me so proud – not of the minuscule part I played, but of my city.
