Hump Day

Happy Year of the Rat...bump!

What do bicycle safety and monkeys have in common? Nothing? Wrong. Actually, watch this first:


There went your last excuse.


Was Mike Huckabee giving away free cigarettes at the polls yesterday? Did you hear this guys speech last night? He should only allowed to campaign at Wal-mart for rest of the year.

And finally, I was reminded of this movie just now. Strange musical, bad theatrical production, but still, this scene - where Burger (Treat Williams) gets caught at the base posing for his buddy so he could meet up with all their hippie friends for one last freakout, and gets sent to Vietnam in his place - really gets to me. Even as a kid, when I first saw it, it taught me that war and violence were inevitable, tragically, no matter how hard you tried to avoid it. The best you could do was to stand your ground (Bernadette Peters alert).

What's your deal with Bernadette Peters? Do you lurve her?

I do love Bernadette Peters...is there anybody cuter? I think not. Although I blew it, that's not her...is actually someone named Cheryl Barnes, and her resume is pretty bleak, apparently.
