Out of this world


See you on the flip slide.

Some days, ya just gotta tip your hat to the blogosphere…’cause Dirk nailed this one right on the head!

Happy Monday everybody!  May the stuff that spews forth from your brain be as fabulous and fraught with…confusion.

On my mind

Mondays are hard enough.

And now I’m trying to un-see this.

It’s a brain tapeworm, of all god-forsaken things.

Brain tapeworms?  Who even knew they existed?  I sure didn’t…until an innocent web search invited that knowledge into my head.

Hopefully not the tapeworms.

They can enter your system if you eat undercooked pork, since the larvae often attach to pig muscle.  And once there, they flow through the bloodstream and get stuck in cavities in the cranium.

I don’t want to know this!  You don’t either!!

But misery loves company.

Happy Monday.

Day by day

I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
Tell me why
I don’t like Mondays
I want to shoot
The whole day down —

I’ll tell you why I don’t like Mondays.

Everybody wants everything done on Mondays.  I try to do everything on Mondays.  Monday never seems to end.

By Tuesday, I done.

So…how’re you doing?

Morning show

Yesterday a friend’s status on Facebook read, “Monday is a lame way to spend one-seventh of your life.”  I’m sure we all agree.

It’s the beginning of the work week for most.  Alarms going off again.  Rats racing.  Blood pressures rising.

Ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

But what makes Monday mornings particularly difficult for me is…there’s no late-night TV on the DVR to watch with my breakfast.

I know most of the world starts their day with “Today” or “Good Morning America” — I used to as well.  But for the past year, “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” on DVR are my morning shows of choice.

And I have to say — that’s the kind of programming you need to face the work day.  Creative.  Silly.  Irreverent.  Outrageous.  Laugh-out-loud funny.  Craig’s robot skeleton army.  Jimmy’s Twitter hash tags and award-worthy TV show spoofs.

Not another boring interview on the effect of airborne viruses on skim milk.  (I mean, come on.)

I’ve had a friend accuse me of being a bit obsessive about late-night television.  Now, unless I’m wrong and…please correct me if I am, ‘obsession’ is practically a psychiatric term…concerning people who don’t have anything else but the object of their obsession — who can’t stop and do anything else. Well, here I am stopping to tell you this. Okay? So would you please try and be a little more precise instead of calling a person something like ‘obsessive?’ *

So, don’t take my word for it.  Give it a whirl; see what you think.  Set your DVR.  Go to bed and get some sleep.  Then have your Cheerios with Craig and Jimmy.

It will make Monday — and every work day — go down a bit easier.

Note: In a sad twist of fate, both “Late Night” and “The Late Late Show” are in reruns this week.  I feel the clouds a’gatherin’…
