I had a suspicion that was the call.

Personally I wouldn't wear a VB ad because it's awful.

So we just got an ad for the Mormon church during the cricket. Just images of smiling families with a verse from the Book of Mormon quoted. Never seen anything like that before, especially not in prime time.

What the hell though. Not your target demographic, but Mormons do like to annoy people at random.

Outplayed by the sound of things. Match went the distance (5 sets and nearly 5 hours) Wonder what Novak is going to to do with his unusual week off from the second week of the Aus Open.

The Mormon ads here usually show some touching family moment, then the voiceover: "Family. Isn't it about time? A message from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints"

Actually, we had a whole bunch of ads later in the evening for the musical The Book of Mormon, so I wonder if it was for that. But it was played straight, literally nothing but a girl reading this verse that sounded pretty authentic. I only glanced up so I didn't notice anything written; I didn't realise what it was until she read the citation at the end, chapter and verse whatever from bla bla bla.

I could see the Mormons realising that the musical is advertising on telly and running their own ads in the same timeslot. The ads for the musical were quite different in style to this one.

If it was legit, it's the first time I've ever seen a religion advertise here.

I think the only other one I've seen in a commercial is Baha'i. Some local Protestant churches advertise on the local news station, but that doesn't count.

It's ugly and raining here. I just got home and immediately took off my jeans. I have this short person problem where the ends of my jeans touch the ground. They wick the rain up my ankles. So I changed into my pajama pants with the top I had already had on. The great thing is that I own so much lime green clothing that I am still perfectly coordinated.

When I was at the beach the other day I got talked into standing in the low water in jeans, so my washing basket contains wet, sandy jeans.

I also seriously doubt I have ever been colour coordinated in my life, unless a woman has told me what to wear.

Also yesterday when I went to visit my dad it was the worst sustained rain I've ever driven in. I was wearing business attire.

Did I wear one of my dark shirts? You know it was light blue and obvious I was in the rain!
