6:15- I gave a brief recap of the Grammys last night. I always have loved that awards show. It's a chance to see some of your favorite artists perform live and what the celebs are wearing. I know its cheesy but hey I own it! I was so tired by the time the show started, I poured myself a glass of vino, climbed in bed and tweet/watched it with friends. I thought Bey and Jay were good but I did think “Damn, it's only 8 o' clock at night, there are kids watching”. Oh well, I know I'm getting old, but it was still a good performance. I like Daft Punk, Pharrell and Stevie Wonder, that was cool. I really liked the Keith Urban/Gary Clark Jr collab too. I'd never heard of Gary Clark Jr but I plan on looking him up.
Takeaway in a few words:
Beyonce and JayZ-- steamy opening.
Pharrell Williams -his hat got it's own attention. http://www.eonline.com/news/503679/pharrell-s-grammys-hat-is-gigantic-and-obviously-it-already-has-its-own-twitter-account
Sir Paul McCartney still rocks!

Superbowl is coming up this Sunday. DId you know, it's easy to eat up to 2,000 calories? Yeah, scary! According to a new study, you'd be surprised at what people will be throwing back during the game. I know I was.
Superbowl Foods from USAtoday
Super Bowl Sunday is the second-largest day for U.S. food consumption, after Thanksgiving Day, according to Wikipedia. With an easy 2,000 calories consumed!About 22% of people say they eat chips on Super Bowl Sunday; 18%, pizza; 16%, soup; and 13% say they consume alcohol, says Harry Balzer, of NPD Group, which tracks eating trends.
Veggies are the most common food eaten that day with 27% eating any kind of vegetable, Balzer says.
Wings are the most seasonal food, increasing from 2% of people eating them on a typical Sunday to 6% of people who consume them on Super Bowl Sunday. About 12% eat pizza on a regular Sunday compared with 18% on the big game day. "It's a party day, so I expect those to be higher," he says.
Other things people nibble on: 5% eat carrots; 5%, nuts and seeds. Only 1% consume chili.
These numbers reflect people's eating habits on Super Bowl Sunday from 2008 through 2013. They include people who watch the game and those who don't, which is the majority of Americans, Balzer says. About 108.7 million people watched the Super Bowl last year, which means more than 200 million people didn't watch it.
