Way back in December I was celebrating the return to television of the dramady Ed.
I had fond memories of the Gilmore Girls-esque show, but the real thing is so much better than I remembered.
I smile the entire time I watch it, which I really appreciate right now.
Thanks Tom Cavanagh and Julie Bowen. And Michael Ian Black. And Justin Long.

I thought the word for 2016 was CHANGE.
I’m beginning to think it’s really LOSS.
RIP Alan Rickman.

Do you remember the television series Ed?
It was on NBC 2000-2004.
Tom Cavanagh played Ed, a lawyer that returns to his hometown after a bad divorce to run a bowling alley. Julie Bowen (Modern Family) was his new love interest, comedian Michael Ian Black played a coworker and Justin Long a local high school kid.
It had the charm and quirkiness of Gilmore Girls, and I loved it. I’ve wondered through the years why it wasn’t syndicated on some cable channel.
Ed is coming to the UP network weekdays on January 10th!
I am pumped.

I was re-watching episodes of Season 5 of Downton Abbey on PBS, and noticed the opening sequence with Laura Linney had been changed.
Not only are there new sponsors listed in addition to our beloved Donald and Darlene Shirley, but Laura has also re-recorded the voiceover for ‘thank you’ which had always sounded so stiff and, well, ungrateful.
Turns out that bit doesn’t require acting, just sincerity.

I was clicking through the cable channels this Sunday morning and happened upon one of my favorite Jim Carrey movies, Bruce Almighty, at the exact moment that Bruce — enjoying his God-like powers by this point — tells his dog to use the toilet instead of going outside.
The image at left may have been doctored a bit, but if you’ve seen the film, the dog walks up to the tank, steps on the seat, does his business, flushes and even puts down the lid in deference to the ‘lady of the house.’
Now that I have an older dog in the house with more, shall we say, unpredictable pee pee patterns, I totally wish I had bought a little kiddie toilet and hired a dog trainer to teach him how to use it.
It would so rock.
He already reads the newspaper, of course.

I am so over this hashtag and how people throw it around:
Really? Are you really feeling blessed to get a fancy toilet?
Just Iike some folks on Facebook are blessed to find a parking spot or blessed to go out to dinner or blessed to do anything.
In the words of Inigo Montoya, “I do not think this word means what you think it means.”
Don’t wear it out, people…especially not on a toilet.
