I'm sad to say I've never even heard of Waiting for Guffman.

When you return home in the dead of winter, rent it. It'll cheer you up. :blink:

Fred Willard's line about his "penis reduction surgery" to dentist Eugene Levy seeking his opinion "as a medical man" cracked me up. Willard's nonchalant delivery and Levy's shocked reaction are priceless.

I already mentioned Lord Buckley, and nobody agreed. Are you all simply too young?


No.

My dad used to make us listen to him. I guess I should try again.

if you see Guffman, remember that in real life I am very much like the character Corky St Claire.

Customers.

Had an elderly gentleman in the store the other day. He asked me where Housewares were. I figured I could save him some footwork and asked what he wanted.

"A nookie shaper."

"Excuse me?"

"A nookie shaper. I usually use two forks, but I wanted to try using a nookie shaper..."

I could hardly recount this story to my coworkers, I was laughing so hard.


i don't get it.

my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

 

current restaurant review: house of curry (sri lankan in rosemount, mn)

 

current whisky review: glen ord 28

 

current recipe: white bean curry with green peppers

Gnocchi, I think.

Actually, I'm an odd combination of Corky, George Clooney, Ana Maria Alberghetti, Moms Mabley and Charles Nelson Reilly. For me, it works.

Last week, TJ and I spent a night at his Mom's house. For some reason, she's replaced the queen-size bed in the guest room with two twins. So for the first time in our history together, we slept in separate beds. As TJ switched off the light he said “goodnight, Lucy.”

Today I saw Eddie Izzard in a movie called 'My Super Ex Girlfriend," or something similar. He was fucking boring. Everone in the fucking movie was fucking boring. I cannot recall ever before having seen a movie billed as a comedy with minus zero laughs. Do some people really think Uma Thurman is attractive?. The Wilson brothers need to be confited. Although Owen wasn't in this, he deserves it for Dupree. I would have walked out but my arthritis was killing me and after the codiene kicked in I no longer cared.
Cambridge University Professor of Electrical Engineering, Sir Charles Oatley, in October, 1948, along with his student Dennis McMullan, began the research that led to the production of the first scanning electron microscope in 1965.

I thought you'd want to know.

I thought it was funny.

The "two forks" got me to thinking about 'forked tongues' in a free association, stream of conciousness sort of way.

IMDBing to find out if Eddie Izzard has been in any good movies* I discovered that he was in The Revenger's Tragedy (yes that Revenger's Tragedy) directed by Alex Cox!

SHADOW OF THE VAMPIRE is serious cinematographic eye-candy if you're into that sort of thing. The central conceit of the plot was a bit silly, but if you could suspend your disbelief, it was a pretty decent movie. And Eddie was good. Very understated performance.
