Prior to this weekend, my sole experience with Indianapolis was driving through it on my way home from college sometime in the early eighties. It was three in the morning, in a torrential downpour, and I lost the driver's side wiper on my car.
This was in the days before cell phones or all night convenience stores, so I had to swap in the other wiper blade and rig the bare wiper arm so it wouldn't scratch the windshield. All this in the pitch dark and the pouring rain. So I never really had any fond memories of Indianapolis.
My Favorite Older Sister always yells at me if I bring this story up. She's always the first to defend Indianapolis. She said it had a lovely canal district with lots of interesting shops and restaurants. She really enjoys going there for business, and every time I mention rain or windshield wipers, she smacks me one.
So I decided to kill two birds with one stone. I'd travel to Indianapolis and see for myself what a magical and enchanted city it really is. Plus I'd see the Super Bowl. I realize there are many people out there who would die for a chance to attend the Super Bowl. To be honest, I don't really care one way or another, but through the magic of the internet I have been able to do both, and you have no real way of telling whether or not I actually did it. I now bring my story alive for YOU, so I can rub your collective faces in it and you can have the vicarious thrill of going to Indianapolis and attending the Super Bowl with me. Yeah, you feel like a winner already, don'tcha? MORE Mojo! »

One might think I spend ALL MY TIME watching television, but what I do is, well, okay, I have the news on in the early morning in the background, like now, so that if the world asploded overnight I might be vaguely aware of it. The rest of the day it is off, unless I decide to have a movie on in the background while I am working at the computer. (I don't bother with daytime television anymore. I just DON'T. MORE Mojo! »

Naw, not really. Can't be bothered. Mojo is the gal who is perpetually looking FORWARD in life, not retrospecting.
I just decided to post a link to my latest silly project, which was a commercial for Doritos for their Crash the Super Bowl contest. I assume for some reason I did not win, since they have yet to notify me if I did. But it gave me an excuse to finally learn the animating software I have been planning to learn these past three or four years. The whole thing was shot, animated and edited in about two weeks, with a week or so of conceiving, storyboarding and other preprod things. Plus it was fun to lure squirrels into my life with Doritos. (They LUV them, btw, although I am dead sure they are not good for them to eat in any great quantity....)
Oh, and the new car, since people are asking. It's a 2009 RAV4. Mojo loves her Toyotas, don'tcha know. The color is called "Pyrite Mica", although I have no idea why. It's a dark gold/light brown metallic looking dealie. One of those love-at-first-sight things for my Favorite Husband, although he will passionately deny it. I could take or leave the color, but it's his car, and it's a good, serviceable car. My Favorite Husband DID spring for the heated leather seats, however, as an add-on. I promise to tease him mercilessly for this extravagance, although I'm ultimately the one who told him he should get it. I said my Favorite Father once told me, one of his Life Lessons to impart was "Get whatever you want on the car when you buy a car." And my Favorite Father is ALWAYS RIGHT. Sort of like Mojo.
LOOK! LOOK! MOJO STUFF!
