Catchy Commercials from Childhood

No idea why, but I had some random commercial jingle from back in the day stuck in my head this morning. I used to annoy the crap out of my sister by singing commercial jingles all day as a kid (one of my favorite memories = annoying my sister). Anyway, thought I'd find the links of some old jingles (some of which even out-date me) that always find their way into my head!

Stretch it out out out, Caramell-ooooo!

Have a good night sleep on us....Matt-tress Dis-count-ers!

Double double your refreshment,
Double double your enjoyyyyyment,
No single gum double freshens your mouth liiiiike,
Double Mint, Double Mint, (oh it's the Double Mint),
Double Mint, Double Mint....Gum.

It's a race for the taste, of Honey Nut Cheer-eeee-O's!

I never knew the words to this song, but I always loved this commercial. I'm just gonna let you watch this one for yourself. Enjoy!

Pizza in the morning,
Pizza in the evening,
Pizza at supper time!
When pizza's on a bagel,
You can eat pizza any time!

Plop Plop,
Fizz Fizz,
Oh what a relief it is,

Which ones do YOU remember?

How Are We Already in May?

How in the world are we already in mid-May? Guess it's time for a quick "Land of Marc" update:

1) Two of my UCLA friends (1-4-3) are getting married this weekend up in L.A. Gonna be a huge reunion of all the UCLA people I used to cheer with, sleep with, eat with, tailgate with, camp with, plan events with, throw frisbees with, brush my teeth in a science lab with, jump up-and-down and yell "Ohhhhhh" with, look like a doofus with, and much, much more. I can't wait.

2) Next weekend is my work's annual Jack in the Box "Hoops at the Beach" tournament in Mission Bay. We're expecting around 160 teams to take part in this two-day 3-on-3 basketball tournament, and crossing our fingers for good weather too. If you're bored and looking for something entertaining to pass the day, check out this video from last year's Slam Dunk contest. These guys were ridiculous. Best dunk contest in the 24-year history of the event:

3) I am still planning on running the San Diego Rock n Roll Half-Marathon on June 5th...and it's not gonna be pretty. Training has been severely affected by an annoyingly consistent barrage of injuries, and now the race is right around the corner. Let's just say my goals have changed from wanting a certain time...to just finishing.

4) I love the comments from the "Board Game" blog post. Let me know what other nostalgic topics could be fun for me to explore!
