So as mentioned, earlier this week, while getting my hairs did at the salon, I read the most current version of People magazine.
Air travel and hair fixin's are the only time I let that kind of drivel inhabit my mind.
I noticed, while reading, an advertising for McDonalds and their new offering of Shrek 3 drinking glasses.
Oh did this take me back to my youth.
As a kid, I believe we had a set of Star Wars glasses. We also had a set of McDonalds character glasses, you know, Ronald McDonald, Hamburgler, etc.
I *loved* those glasses and loved collecting them.
However, they were made of such cheap glass that most ultimately broke in the dishwasher.
I thought it was a quite a bit of capitalizing on Gen X nostalgia that Mickey D's was doing this sort of promotion again.
I had planned to write a blog post that was something like "Stop pandering to my generation! I know we are a target audience what with being at a good money making part of our careers and most of my peers with the house fulla kids! Google pandered with retro Pac-Man and now THIS?!?!?!"
Turns out I have to switch that slippery ol' rant lever to "off".
McDonald's Recalls 'Shrek' Glasses.
Damn. Sorta stole my Friday blogging thunder.
