See the icon dotfic made for me? *Glee*!! And for this week's episode, I have to say that I love how things eventually migrate toward Sue's benefit. There's a "charmed life" aspect to it, which only reinforces her view of her utter awesomeness. :D

Someone commented on a fic last week with a quote from Futurama that I didn't recognize. I'm so sorry that show moved off of network TV. The episode where Bender goes in search of an electricity high, gets lightning-zapped through the roof of the Church of Robotology and eventually has a dance-number with Beelzebot still ranks as my favorite. Hard to top that!

I still love The Simpsons, where the funniest parts are often the side-jokes that you don't even see coming. The expanding man-corset translating to career stops in the life of William Shatner was priceless! Oddly enough, the character featured in that snippet does not seem to have a name. I searched Wikipedia and imdb.com (my usual haunts), and came up dry. If msgenevieve passes by, she might know: it's the basement-nerd guy who ran a comic book store for awhile and often starts statements with, "If you had read my blog..."

Yesterday's bike ride in the wind was still less bad than Monday's heat-exhaustion fail. Something I've seen a couple of times lately is a hawk with a smaller bird chasing it. I can't tell if that's a baby learning the ropes from Mama, or some random other bird thinking, "Hey, this looks fun!" Or maybe, "PH3AR M3!!!" ;)

There have been a couple of random defriendings over the last few months, and I'll admit-- I'm as clueless as ever. I don't know whether people are bored with me or angry, but I hope it's not the latter. It's been a long, painful year, and I know that sometimes I've been a pain because of it. For those of you who have stuck with me, I really appreciate it!

Random piece of fun, courtesy of Christopher (and yes, most of you who are more savvy than I have probably already seen it): The Ultimate Showdown Of Ultimate Destiny video. I think I love it all the more because Abe Lincoln really WAS that awesome. \o/

i'm now picturing something completely harmless, like a robin, chasing after a hawk doing the bird equivalent of yelling "FEAR MY FEATHERY WRATH!" and it's making me giggle.

i always thought the comic-shop nerdboy on the simpsons was just "comic book nerd guy" or something. i didn't realize he had a name!

I kind of hope it's that-- where the hawk is out hunting or minding its own business, and this little bird is trailing it thinking, "RAWWWWWRRR! I AM MIGHTY!"

He might not, but he shows up so frequently that you'd expect him to have a name. Even Disco Stu has a name, and don't think he's gotten as much airtime as Mr. Disdain. ;)

The Simpsons character is just called Comic Book Guy. For reals. Lol. I don't think he ever gets a real name. XD

Aw, seriously? He at least deserves a Wiki entry that describes him. Right now, you'd think he didn't exist!

Of course, it escaped my attention forever that "Scottish Janitor" was better known as "Groundskeeper Willy". ;)

Thanks!

He really does. He's pretty cool.

Lol, Willy is my favorite of the minor characters. :D

One of my favorite random Simpson's moments (aside from the giant tartan combine spider-Willy) was the one where Willy was watching dating videos and either Patty or Selma tied a knot in a cigarette with her tongue.

"Ewaugh! Back to the lochhh with _yeuw_, Nessie!"

I still randomly quote that phrase. ;)

Hee!

Behold! I am Captain Kirk from Star Trek One! Two! Five! Generations! *sighs* Boston Legal

Ah, Comic Book Guy. How I love you. WORST...EPISODE...EVER.

But, I do bring Simpson junkie knowledge - they did actually give him a name, Jeff Albertson, in the episode where Ned Flanders makes a movie about Cain and Abel starring Rod and Todd. And wow, I'm a little embarrassed I know that. LOL!

Hahahaha! I see you've seen that episode already!

There are really no "bad" Simpsons episodes for me, because there's always some cracktastic moment that sticks out:

"I dreamed I was the belle of the Ollld West..."

The Television Museum exhibit of "Things That Talk But Shouldn't"

"Aw! I like it better when they're making fun of people who AREN'T me!"

So Comic Book Guy does have a name! I knew you'd know, if anyone did! \o/
