I said When I Wake Up but I forget to say And Then Thirteen Hours After That, give or take. Don’t look at me like that. I had stuff to do!
Get a new cell phone (which is the sucky non flip top kinda, but it was either that or pay an extra $150 to be able to flip and I don’t want to flip that bad – I did get insurance on the phone this time), clean out a room that’s being painted tomorrow maybe, deposit my one dollar check, go to the dealership to get an oil change, figure out what to do when the dealership is closed on Sundays, that sorta stuff.
And watch a lot of TV. So so important.
I just watched the Ripping Friends for the first time. You’re waiting for the funny part to come, and then you’re waiting, and then you’re waiting and then you’re just kinda bored with the whole thing. The Yogi Bear take off thing the same guy did was a lot the same, where it was really strange but not funny or even that entertaining. Maybe it gets better after the pilot? Maybe I don’t stick around to find out? I dunno. Between that and the Oblongs, there’s an hour there I can skip if I’m willing to miss out on the commercial shorts.
Seriously, though, they couldn’t have just thrown on two Space Ghost episodes tonight? The mini horse deals were fun but not enough.
Okay, now I’m watching the Popeye show instead of doing anything. This is getting sorta sad.
CD Update – my Big Brat mp3 was messed up so I need to reborn that CD. And make another one for this week, so I’m already looking for song and not finding anything good. Kazaa is a worthless pile of faked and corrupted MP3s incredibly frustrating, so I’m using other stuff now. I mean, bad MP3s are the cost of doing business at this point, but they’re still really annoying.
I need to see Chris Hero. I also need to find a good book to read and time to do it. Perhaps instead of watching random cartoons.
I didn’t mention the end of Home Movies – outside of when I complained about the choices Cartoon Network was making – because, well, I didn’t really dig it. Brandon made a comment along the lines of hating to writing endings, and it felt like real life Brandon was living that out. It was like they were trying to hard to say something, or even just find something to say, instead of being funny, at least as funny as they were in other episodes.
It’s one of the rare times where you don’t want the writers to be conscious that This Is (Probably) It and adjust accordingly; I think I would’ve enjoyed just another edition of Mellisa, Jason and Brandon making their movies instead of expounding on endings and the camera getting broke.
It’s still on my TiVo, in the “stuff I can’t bear to delete because I risk never seeing them again” section, so maybe I’ll watch it again and change my mind.
The Peanuts dancing gag, that was pretty funny.
I got MVP Baseball Tuesday on the way home, and I’ve played it like twice. Since all my friends and me do is play multi-player franchise mode on Madden, it’s a tremendous disappointment that MVP doesn’t have the same abilities. Why wouldn’t they do that by now in all games? I wasn’t expecting them to just be that far along, I was expecting them to be able to do that sort of thing on-line by now, seeing as I have/had PC games ten years ago that could do that.

Somedays I think it’s best if I don’t watch the Cubs games. But then Ron and Pat can drive you insane.
