It’s hard to believe it’s been over three years since I first saw The Trip starring Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon.
I saw it in the theater then. Today was a chance encounter on HBO.
And I watched it again.
I still laughed at the two comedians’ competitive conversations and celebrity impressions. But this time I found myself trying out a few of the characterizations — with very limited success.
Why can’t I do impressions better? And why are they so darn good?
Obviously they have invested far more than 90 minutes towards this endeavor, but I wonder if I would be able to achieve any success with a lifetime of practice.
Do the Brits just have an edge?
I say yes. (This stance saves me a lot of time and effort.)

I love a newspaper with a sense of humor.
Of course, in this case, The Washington Post borrowed the funny from Vice President Joe Biden.
As is his habit, Joe had dozens of his trademark gems for the new members of the 114th Congress and their family during Tuesday’s swearing-in ceremonies. So the Post put together a little generator so we all can enjoy a compliment from the vice president.
You can always depend on Uncle Joe. And I don’t know about you, but today…
I can use the smile.

Television news anchors will be reciting Morton Salt‘s famed slogan “When it rains, it pours” ad nauseam tonight after a wall collapsed at a plant outside Chicago, spilling salt all over cars in an Acura dealership next door.
Within minutes, two separate delivery trucks carrying lemons and bottles of tequila crashed into that very same lot.
No one was injured, but many people were reportedly smashed.

During a class meeting today, I had reason to utter the words —
…which brought to mind the iconic scene from The Jerk starring Steve Martin.
When I mentioned the movie to my class, they stared at me unknowingly. One student, trying to be helpful, said, “I’ve heard of Steve Martin.
So, for their education — and everyone’s viewing pleasure — I include the aforementioned clip here.
I hope you are inspired to watch The Jerk…
And learn your special purpose.

There are alphabets in my oatmeal!
‘C’ is the first letter of my first name! My last name, too!
What can it mean?

Today was a very exciting day.
I finally found a hat that is bigger than my “larger-than-any-women’s-often-men’s-hat-shop-can-tackle (without resorting to a special order, I mean).
And here it is:
It has the added bonus of covering all my hair — no need to brush, flat iron or coif!
Seeing may be a slight problem…
