As long as everyone already knows I'm years behind the rest of the culture, can I recommend That's My Bush! before Dubya actually concludes his presidency? We just finished watching the short series; it starts weak but gets pretty strong by the end. Using the Bush White House as a setting, Trey Parker and Matt Stone riff on ridiculous sitcom clichés like enemies trapped in a small space and the R-rated misunderstanding while eavesdropping. The cast includes (of course) the bumbling husband, the insecure wife, the wacky neighbor who keeps barging in, the sassy maid, the ditzy blonde secretary, and Karl Rove. It's good stuff if you like Parker & Stone's riffs on pop culture in other productions, and it makes for a fine sendoff for #43.

Two Replies to Everybody Loves George

I loved that show, too, actually. Everyone I spoke to thought it was "immature" (whatever that is supposed to imply), and I was quite sad when it went of Comedy Central.

And then CC picked up that horrible Lil Bush crap a bit later... :( Ugh!

"One of these days, Laura, I'm gonna punch you right in the face!" :D

Saving up is hard to do. I'm spending every dollar I have after the holidays to move Kelly here next week, then we have to move again in two months to a larger place. And I have more than a grand to pay in taxes. Go »

Not to Be Confused with Denise Sawicki

It's been two months since I first mentioned my new love Denise on the site. She's overdue for a proper introduction, since I plan to continue mentioning her on a first-name basis around here. (I don't know why some men continue to tell me about their woman by calling her "my wife" or "my girlfriend" even though I've known her and socialized with her for years.) Go »

Thus Spoke Jeffy

This has been around for a while I'm sure, but it's new to me and I love it: The Nietzsche Family Circus. Go »


There are some dangerous intersections in our neighborhood, where trucks come barreling through after the light turns red. This morning, Kelly and I were waiting at the light when she dropped her sunglasses. "Fuck beans," she muttered, unbuckling her seat belt and leaning forward just as the light turned green. Go »


Bill O'Reilly on Shawn Hornbeck: "The situation here, for this kid, looks to me to be a lot more fun than what he had under his 'old' parents. He didn't have to go to school, he could run around and do whatever he wanted." Yeah, it was great. Go »

Moved In

We are moved in and settled, or as settled as we can be with little money and way too much stuff for a two-bedroom apartment. The final move will come in April when we transfer to a house. We have our eye on a house in Ruskin, 30 minutes from here – four bedrooms, two-car garage, cable included, never lived in, all for $50 less a month than I pay now. Go »
