Something's dead in Chimney?
I've come back from a week long work trip and there is this weird smell in the house.
Moira calls me and says that there is something stuck in the chimney and she isn't coming home until it's gone.
I turn to the Yellow Pages in search of a solution, and I begin to traverse the categories:
I turned up a single entry:
I call the dude, he comes over and extracts a dead possum from my chimney. urrrg!!! There's a bunch of white maggots too.
No photos, but trust me - it was a dead possum.
I call Moira amd she can come back home now.[listening to: Olivers Army - Elvis Costello ]

I have been treated to many delights for my 42nd birthday.
I score some DVDs (including KIMBA the White Lion and War of the Worlds) and some CDs (including Madonna's new one), some clothes and some books (including one titled "Dealing with People You Can't Stand: How to Bring Out the Best in People at Their Worst" - what are my kids telling me??)
There is even photographic proof that we went out :Madonna ]

Sad News : Arrested Development Canceled
As I was scanning my news feeds this morning, I saw this headline - "BREAKING NEWS: Arrested, 7th Heaven, Kitchen cancelled"
Arrested Development has gotta be the funnies program I've seen in years. I have both Season 1 and Season 2 on DVD, and just this week, caught up with all the latest in Season 3, thanks to the wonders of technology.
Here's some free advice for those rocket scientists in Willoughby who are desperate to be Number One. Get the rights for Season 2 and Season 3 of Arrested Development and show it, in prime time. While you are at it, get the rights for shows like "My Name is Earl", "Everybody Hates Chris", and "Commander in Chief". All these are fantastic programs. They all pass the Arrigo family quality test.[listening to: Everybody - Martin Solveig ]

Early Birthday Present for Me
I got a nice surprise this week at work. I got an early birthday present from one of my team members.
Yes, it was signed by the great man himself. The dedication read:"To Frank, Come on The Saints", complete with signature.
Well, I was lost for words.
Thanks Andrew for this most thoughtful gift![listening to: Pump It Up - Elvis Costello & the Attractions ]

The Young Ones
I explained to Bricey that it was like a live action cartoon, so he was happy to watch.
I hadn't re-watched the series for years, so it was good fun reliving the show again, with the surreal segues, the live musical acts, the wacky puppets. Hard to believe the show is over 20 years old now
Oh, and the kids liked it too.[listening to: Living With a Hernia - Weird Al Yankovic ]
