TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE RECENTLY: This song makes me think of clear Pepsi!
ME: You mean Crystal Pepsi?
TWO DIFFERENT PEOPLE RECENTLY: Clear Pepsi.
ME: It was called Crystal Pepsi. And this isn't the song. The song used in the Crystal Pepsi ads was Van Halen's "Right Now".

PAIGE LAST WEEKEND: (Something whimsical about pirates.)
ME: Pirates aren't cool anymore. They're a serious problem.
PAIGE LAST WEEKEND: I don't know what you're talking about.
ME: Modern day pirates wreak havoc off the coast of Somalia.

ME: Speaking of reality television shows, such as this not-very-good "High School Reunion" and this advertisement for "The Cougar" and that portion of "18 Kids and Counting" we viewed online, I heard the Octomom was getting her own dating show.
ALIPETE LAST NIGHT: The Octomom?
ME: The Octomom. Nadya Suleman?
ALIPETE LAST NIGHT: Who?
ME: The California woman who had six kids already, and then gave birth to octuplets, and then went on every TV morning and afternoon show?
ALIPETE LAST NIGHT: I sleep until 12:30. I don't watch "Tyra".
ME: You work at the Times! The Octomom!
ALIPETE LAST NIGHT: I don't know who that is.
