1.  The one good thing about the Giants loss yesterday is that I finally have my weekends back.  The part of my brain that cares about football can go back to sleep.

2.  Kath and I have been catching up on some classic TV that we've never seen; in late December it was "Fawlty Towers", and right now it's Season 1 of "Twin Peaks".  As a first time viewer of Twin Peaks, I must say that I'm shocked and amazed that this show was on network television in 1990; if this were a brand-new show, it would still be ahead of its time.  It's dated, but wonderfully so, and all the performances are spot-on.  We are both infatuated with it, although we've heard from numerous sources that Season 2 is pretty terrible in comparison.  A couple quick observations: 
  • Detective Truman is a dead ringer for former Yankee OF Paul O'Neill
  • If they were to remake this show today, the dopey sherriff would be played by Owen Wilson
  • The funeral scene?  OMFG.
3.  We watched "Burn After Reading" yesterday, and I'm kinda surprised it bombed as hard as it did; we both loved it, and Kath generally doesn't like Coen Brothers movies.
