Anyway, check out his latest venture, Cooking To Get Lucky.

Here's a preview:

The Office is really $@#$@ing funny

Seriously, if you're not watching The Office on NBC, you should be.

For the uninitiated, it's filmed sort of like a reality TV show taking place in an office, the Scranton branch office of the Dunder Mifflin paper company (and to the Office fans out there, I apologize for spelling that wrong, which I assume I did).

You can find lots of clips on YouTube if you're interested in a quick look see ... here's one titled "What The Office Did This Summer"

Star Wars - Family Guy Style, and other musings

I'm a Family Guy fan, so naturally I recorded the Family Guy season premier Sunday night and watched it last night.

The season premier was a one hour remake of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, featuring all Family  Guy characters.  Peter as Han Solo, Chris as Luke Skywalker, Lois as Princess Leah, Stewie as Darth Vader, Brian as Chewbacca, Cleveland as R2D2, etc...

There were, as always, a few jokes that didn't work, but this made me lol a bunch of times.  Check it out if you get a chance!

Last night as a big TV night.  I also watched the season premieres of Two and a Half Men, The Simpson's (DVR'ed on Sunday), Rules of Engagement, and How I Met Your Mother.  Thumbs up all around!   The chalkboard gag in The Simpsons was pretty funny.

I've got bowling tonight.  I think I may have screwed my team by bowling too well the first 3 weeks.  You see, we used "book averages" for the first three weeks - book average is our average from last year, and mine was 177.  But I bowled REALLY well the first two weeks, and pretty close to book average the third week, so my new average going forward is something like 191.  Ouch! 

It'd be cool if I could keep that up... but it seems unlikely =)  We'll find out tonight!

Family Guy

Anyone watch this show?

I'm a huge fan.. every episode makes me laugh... but sometimes more than others.

Like in Sunday's episode when Brian took Meg to the dance.. he gets all drunk, makes out with her, then vomits and said "That wasn't you, that was the beer". I had to pause the show til I stopped laughing.

I'm always amused anytime Brian exhibits CLASSIC dog tendencies, and in this episode, Meg shook a bag of dogfood and he came running.

Even though I'd swear he eats at the table with the rest of the family.

I also found myself wondering exactly how many star wars references they've made in the entire series. My favorite was when Cleveland was starting to get angry after Quagmire slept with his wife, and Lois was trying to talk him down. Suddenly, Emperor Palpatine shows up and says "good, good, use your anger" and lois yells "YOU'RE NOT HELPING!".

I love Family Guy.
