BRING BACK ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT

Friday, October 27, 2006, 4:37:00 PM

I don’t know about any of the rest f you, but the now cancelled television show ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT is just plain, full-on genius. I need to figure out who to write to or pester to get ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT back on the air. I absolutely cannot watch an entire episode of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT without laughing my deepest, fullest laugh at least five times. (“I blue myself” – said Tobias – I’m laughing right now). ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT has an excellent cast. Everyone involved in the production of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT should be praised for creating such a fantstically ridiculous family with such a diverse set of psychologically affected personallities. If I had the money, I’d pay the entirety of the production cost to get ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT back up and running ASAP!

I have no money and no clout so I’m most likely just typing in the wind, as it were, so if anyone with money and clout who happens to be looking for a “pet” project needs an idea – – – ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT- – –

Why would anyone think I’m a witch?

…the glazed white surface smells of recently frozen water, left (swish), right (swish), left (swish), right (swish), an almost silent black spot breezes by the corner of the eye, faster, left (swish), right (swish), left (swish), right (swish), slicing stop, body contact, got control, made the goal…

The return reader of this blog probably has guessed by now that I have been engrossed in the NHL action. I watched every single game played for the first three days of the season and discovered by Sunday that I overloaded on hockey and had to take a little break. I’m risking “the red” having the NHL Center Ice digital package. Oh well, looks like I need to pick-up some side work!

I am currently looking for a new job. Certain things confirmed to me that it was time to leave good old Peter Fillat Architects and seek other opportunities. The whole process of finding new employment pisses me off to some degree. The only place I could ever possibly interview where I could honestly and comfortabley answer the question “where do you see yourself in five years,” would be the Washington Capitals Hockey Club. The obvious answer in my world would be to say “thrilled to death to be working for the hockey club that made it possible for Ollie Kolzig to get a day with the cup, because he deserves it and I love hockey.” Otherwise, I can only really answer, “alive and happy.” It’s a silly question that some research psychologist came up with to make the interview process easier for those hiring parties with too many qualified candidates. I hate to burst the bouble of the particualr party responsible for such thinking, but new studies have shown that 9 times out of 10 your getting a rehearsed, bull shit answer to that question because job seekers know it’s coming? I enjoy creative thinking.

I am in a fracture boot for the next couple of weeks. I’m hoping to get the use of my poor, beat-up, half destroyed, left foot. I have not been nice to that particular appendage over the years, so it all makes sense that I should pay the price. Actually, I’ve never been so excited to see an orthopedic surgeon before. I got there early!!! By the time I got some real work done on my foot, I was begging for the boot. Yay  boot! I’m sure I’ll be paying for this thing for the next ten years, but the boot allows me to actually walk and go up and down stairs and I can shower and scratch itches. A cast would have left me feeling helpless and unproductive. Plus, it takes care of all four foor issues and I even have a night boot, otherwise known as “stupid boot.” I knew this was all coming, so here it is and I know for sure that this time I will actually totaly listen to the doctor and do the physical therapy and be nice to my precious foot.

Here’s something interesting I’ve just recently discovered, the two little toes on my left foot have cause me more grief as injured appendages than any other injury I have ever sustained. Other injuries have been much more painful. Other injuries have been much more serious. Other injuries have happened to much more vital parts of my body, but when I broke those two little toes on an already badly injured foot, life as I know it came to a screaching halt.

I’ll have to pause here and head off to work. I’ll be back soon!

GO CAPS GO – Bring on the music!

SO MUCH
