Things & Stuff
When I Was Your Age

Things are pretty quiet here at Chez Too Old.
I spent most of yesterday being an armchair potato (we don't have a couch). Watched a lot of City Hunter and some Deal Or No Deal.
TV Land is now running M*A*S*H at midnight and Star Trek at 1am. Ever have a show where, even if you've seen all the episodes and know them by heart, you still MUST watch it if it comes on? M*A*S*H is one of those shows for me.
At some point, I'll just have to say no and go to bed at a reasonable hour.
Here's another article about the Michael Vick situation. Nothing new is added to what was already reported.
Again, I'm glad my few vices are legal.
Speaking of those, nothing that I'm interested in is out on DVD this week...which is good, because the cash that I DO have is budgeted for other things.
Again, sometimes I have to learn to say no. No more cool things until at least February...or at least very few.
Speaking of discipline:
It wasn't until I'd read this article on Full Metal Jacket that I found out that it was Vincent D'Onofrio that played the tortured private Leonard "Gomer Pyle" Lawrence. It amazed me that the slim good-looking guy on Law & Order:Criminal Intent played the fat, doomed trainee.
Turns out he put on 70 lbs for the role. Damn, he's good.
There's a site called Superdickery.com that is dedicated to comic book covers and scenes that show superheroes in...well, go look.
Some of these are just...WRONG.
Charlie just stumbled in. I greeted him, and he said, "Eight o'clock staff meeting. Don't ask."
What else could I do? I blessed him - in Latin - and told him to go to bed.
And now, I - like Elmer Fudd - will be vewwy vewwy quiet.
Today's title comes from "Weird Al". Just in case you wondered.
Remember: I either have to know the song or know the artist.
My site, my rules.
Be seeing you.
