1. Home sick today; I caught Kath's cold over the weekend and today it's kicking my ass. Blech. You know how shitty the Yankees' pitching was yesterday? I feel worse than that.

2. None of you mentioned watching Ricky Gervais' "Extras" on Sunday night; Kath and I did, and we were giddily excited for it, but it came and went and even now I feel as if I was hoping for something else. It's funny, and there was one scene in particular which was excruciatingly uncomfortable (in the way that only Ricky Gervais can pull off), but it's not necessarily the greatest show ever, which maybe I'd hoped it would be.

3. That's also because "Arrested Development" is the greatest show ever, by a country mile; I remain flabbergasted as to how blatantly subervise that show is, especially as it's on Fox - that tiny little allusion to Donald Rumsfeld shaking hands with Saddam Hussein was a fantastic little touch.

Before I go, I just want to send a little shoutout to nounsandverbs, a real-life friend of mine that I haven't seen in person in god knows how long; he is a fantastic musician and producer, as well as a good friend that I've missed a lot. I don't know how you tracked me down, but I'm very happy that you did.
