Anyone else seen Jen's new commercial for Florida vacations? She "plays" a waitress - comes out in her blue Fila dress with a nametag on it that says "JEN". I was sitting there, kinda zoning, when I saw someone I thought looked a lot like her and I said to myself, "Man, I'm spending waaaaaaay too much time on that damn message board - now I'm starting to imagine that Jen's doing commercials." But it WAS her! Very cool!! She looks great!
That's awesome! I can't wait to see it! What channel was it on because some commercials only come on certain T.V. channels..?
Good Luck in 2003!!
"I just made the decision that it's now or never..Just, you gotta have this positive self-image of yourself and otherwise, you know, your not gonna survive this life, I mean, you're gonna go through living depressed and sad and not being able to look at yourself and always degrating yourself..You know the most important thing is, is that to love yourself, you know, walk around with your head high and not take anything from anybody!..There's no other way than to just try to be happy, to try to smile, 'cause you know it's just..your wasting time if you're not!"
TeNnIsFaN: I'm 95% sure it was on The Learning Channel (TLC). I'll let you know for sure if/when I see it again.
kazzmazz: I actually only saw parts of it....twice. Like I said, I wasn't really watching - doing a crossword puzzle - so I haven't seen it all the way through but it's to promote Florida tourism ("Florida USA" I think that's what they called it) and shows clips of things to do here including Disney. At the end there's some people eating outside and and she walks up to their table like she's their waitress and says something like, "Can I get you anything else?" She's all smiles and looks happy - - which is nice to see for a change.
Ok - I saw another commercial of theirs in the series (not Jen's) on NBC. I paid closer attention this time. It's for "FLA USA/Florida Vacations" and I went to their website and found this:
VISIT FLORIDA has also teamed up with Florida's Public Broadcasting Service, Inc., to promote and distribute the guide with an eight-week period of advertising on PBS and NPR statewide outlets, plus extensive live on-air promotion on key PBS stations during pledge drive periods.
So, if you have the constitution to sit through PBS programming for 8 weeks, it might be there too. Of course that will mean having to put up with several 40 hour mini-series' on some dusty old English novel.
(No offense, but when are you Brits gonna get bored with Jane Austen? I mean, she's been dead for a REAAALLLLY long time. )
Kazzmazz: Were you being sarcastic? I ask because I know people who are obsessed with that show. I don't watch it myself for fear of becoming one of them and I have a strict rule: I only permit myself to be addicted to one show-my-grandmother-also-watches at a time. Right now that's "Trading Spaces". Do you guys get that? I LOVE it when they hate the new room - cracks me up!
