The elaborate Miss Universe Pageant was held in Miami recently. The winner was Miss Colombia, 22-year-old Paulina Vega.

I don’t pretend to know anything about sports but I do know that last Sunday (February 1) was the Super Bowl in the United States. The event was hosted by the city of Phoenix, Arizona, where the Seattle Seahawks played the New England Patriots. The famous halftime show headliner was Katy Perry. The Patriots won 28 to 24.

I find it confirmation in a way that I am not “mental” and girls of our generation do think this way, to some degree anyway.
