The First Order of Business is…

Watch House.

It is the best show on Television.

Really. Do it now.

I don’t know why this show appeals to me so much. The character named Dr. Gregory House would drive me nuts were I a patient or subordinate in that hospital. He’s a mysanthropic, intelligent diagnostician who seems to have the answers to everything. No one likes the fact that he’s right all the time (least of all, the head Doctor at the hospital).

Lots of risks are involved in his experiments. Perhaps I like the fact that House thinks outside the box, and that he never gives up. The big picture always plays out in his mind as he pursues the answers to the most mundane problems. Now you have to watch an episode to see what the hell I am talking about. Go now.

On another note…

A friend and I were talking about his mood today. He mentioned he was grumpy because he’d just come back from the dentist. I told him that he was grumpy because he got the clap from the “bonus plan” that the dentist offered. The brush and tug.

I wonder what famed intellectual shortened “Body Rub Parlour” or “Erotic Massage Boutique” to “Rub and Tug”? It’s a work of genius, and yet, it seems like some kind of breakfast menu item.

“Margie, I’ll have a plate o’ ham n’ eggs, and my buddy Ralph over here’ll get himself a rub ‘n tug with coffee…”

It’s just weird.

The conversation went downhill from there, as we brought the idiotic element of the phrase to the fore by introducing the “Tug and Tug”. You know. Go down to the harbour and take a boat ride and get the finish when you’re done. Think of all the people who would be lining up for that!


I am a smart fellow.

A genius in fact…

Today is the First Day of the Rest of Your Boredom…

When exactly was it that I received the itch?

The itch, of course is the need to start a blog.

I've always read other people's blogs, and found a lot of them quite interesting. The idea itself is great: Create a public space where you can disseminate information about yourself without reprisal (well, in the case of those blogs without comments fields).

As interesting as it all seemed to be to others to create, I didn't really want to consider creating one for myself, because who wants to listen to me? Really? Also, in which blogging paradise do I create a home? Do I use a public service, or create my own?

My friends Reay and Shaun have their own. My friend Dave has his on a public service. (You can check them out. The worst thing they have is a little bit of profanity but nothing overly graphic.) And so here were several examples of fun blogs.

And I didn't know what to do. So I didn't do anything.

And then my cousin MSG'd me her new blogspace, through MSN Messegner. And I thought that it would be a good medium to use. So here I am. On MSN. Some people are probably shuddering right now, but what can you do?

I'm not sure how frequently I'll update this space, but I'll certainly have fun writing whatever it is that I write in here.

So thanks for checking it out!
