I'm Heading out of Town, Suckahs.

Witticisms and antiquated references upon my return. Wait for me!

Program Your Tivos

Because on May 8th I'm going to be on the Women's Entertainment (We) network for about 3 minutes!!!

A little while ago, I filmed some spots for the We show "Cinematherapy". It's kind of like TBS' "Movie and a Makeover"; only without the makeover and with the addition of inflatable furniture. The network shows a movie, and then there are little vignettes or whatever before and after commercials during which the host interviews women (only women - it's a chick network, like Lifetime's heavyset cousin) about their lives, asking questions relating to the movie.

So that's what it is! I don't even know what time on May 8th it'll be on - I'll let you know when I do. But if you'd like to see me answer questions relating to the movie "Picture Perfect", and you know who you are, this show's for you!

So I was back in DC this weekend for my friend Melissa's birthday party. Soooo good to be back home, as usual, and I'm happy I got to see as many people as I did. Those of you that I didn't get to see, rest assured that I will clamber back onto the Chinatown bus in the not-too-distant future and force my friendship upon you once again.

Anyhoo - we were at Rocket Bar on Saturday night for the party, and it was packed. However there was one dude you could see over everyone else at all times because he was crazy tall. At one point I was standing next to him at the bar, so I asked him how tall he was. 6'10''. That's pretty tall. However, it wasn't the most interesting thing he had to say.

He also told me he was a robot from the future. He's come back to save the world, he's a skilled assassin, blah blah blah. I was unfazed by his confession, and asked him if he knew Sarah Conner. He said he had no idea who that was. Some future robot! Not knowing who the mother of mankind's salvation is!

And I bet he can't even clean the house at top speeds like some other authentic robots who shall remain nameless (but whose picture you'll find below).

I am calling Shenanigans on Danny Rouhier.

Danny, I read the comment you left on my blog yesterday. And while I learned a lot while reading your fun facts about "The District" and the always-alluring Craig T. Nelson's cousin; you are mistaken when you say "I literally have not seen you in 2008." Because as you will obviously NOT recall - I went to a Knicks game with you and the bespectacled Ryan Conner. In February. February is part of 2008. Game, set, match. I just owned you, Danny.

You all saw it.

The District

Wasn't there a show called "The District" for a while? Didn't it star Craig T. Nelson, formerly of "Coach" fame? Didn't the show focus on Washington DC's crazy high murder rate? Awesome.

Speaking of murder and DC, I'll be back for a visit this weekend!! Wooo!!! Let's get toasted!

My ravenous and demanding fans (read: Beth) have been quite disappointed with my recent lack of updates. I'm sorry. But tax season always takes a toll on me, as it requires lengthy hours spent crouched in the bushes outside of H&R Block locations waiting for clients to come out so I can get in their face and promise more deductions and bigger refunds when they use my accounting firm, "EC's E-Z Taxes". Clever, no? Every year it's the same thing - I convince around 6 different people to give my tax team a shot, and then I escort them to my "office" (the third booth on the left in the bar area at Chili's) to discuss their financials. But I always seem to lose them before the Boneless Buffalo Wings arrive. They'll ask how long I've been an accountant, I'll ask them to kindly mind their own business; they ask for some recommendations from past clients, I tell them I "recommend they shut their mouth and give me their social security number"; and eventually they realize that my pocket protector is full of delicious peppermint candies instead of pens, and insist on taking their business elsewhere. Yep. I've been busy.

The other day I saw a cab careening down Lexington Avenue with an older guy in a jumpsuit laying face down on the hood and holding on for dear life. When the cab finally stopped, the guy climbed off the hood and punched the driver in the face. Fun for the whole family.

Did I tell you the BIG news? Crowded House is coming back to the US!!!! Like, THIS MONTH!!!! I've already got my tickets for 2 out of their 3 NYC shows. I'm not making it a three-peat only because I'm flying out on the third night. But it's general admission - so if anyone else in the NY area wants to go you can still get tickets and we can rock out together and I'll buy you a soda and maybe we can share a cab home afterwards and I'll even have the cab drop you off first and I won't expect anything to happen because we're just friends and I totally respect our friendship too much to try and jeopardize it unless you wanna just fool around for the hell of OK.

I was kidding anyway.
