This video made my night! I haven't seen Night Court since I was about 10 years old. I used to turn on Nick at Nite when I couldn't sleep, and always managed to catch an episode of Night Court. Thanks for the memory!

I am indecisive as to who I am going to vote for in the upcoming election, so I have held off on voting in the primary for NY. While I'd rather see Obama in office than Hilary, I cannot say that I'd want him for sure. He does seem very indecisive in his responses to questions. I had this issue with John Kerry in the last presedential election. Kerry would answer a question, and Bush would come back and sort of tell us why what Kerry wanted to do wasn't possible, and then suddenly Kerry would change his answer. I still remain indecisive. Hmph.

Oh hey, I forgot to add my story of being fucked-over by a company. When I was 18 or 19, I got a JC Penney card. I bought a couple of non-expensive items, and waited for a bill. I never got one. When I moved into my first apartment, I called customer service to change my address. The person I got could barely speak English and probably screwed up my address, because a few months later I started getting phone calls from them saying that I owed them all of this money for late fees--but I never got a bill telling me how much I owed! So I paid them off and canceled that card. I also got screwed by Kaufmann's. I used my brand new card to buy a $10 shirt. The woman said I could show my application paper if I wanted to use the card right away. I never got my actual card, nor a bill, and all of a sudden I got calls telling me I owed them $60, and they wouldn't take off those late fees! So I paid them off, and went to cancel, and they wouldn't let me! I just went to apply for a card again, now that it's Macy's, and I learned via snail mail that my old account number was still in their computer! What a bunch of bullshit! I'm glad it's not Kaufmann's anymore!

I have a AAA membership, but not their insurance. While I am lucky to have been able to call them when I was freezing my ass off waiting for a jump, I just don't trust a company like that to handle an insurance claim. I am very satisfied with my insurance company, and they are always very polite and cooperative. I was in an accident in 2006. I called my insurance company the next morning, and someone was at my house within an hour to look at my car and give me a check for the repairs. How much better service can you ask for?

I hear you about the playground equipment. I used to love playing in those wooden playground structures. Now, as I drive around Rochester(NY), I notice that they've all been replaced with plastic equipment, and it doesn't look as fun as the old wooden ones. It really is a wonder that kids would rather sit inside in front of the PS2 or X-Box instead of playing on the playground.

I totally agree with what you are saying. I like to think that is why I play video games as well. I really get into playing SingStar and sometimes Guitar Hero as well, and I love to see the different costumes and environments they provide. I remember playing this game called "Dead or Alive" on my PS1, just to win new costumes and weapons. I didn't care about winning the game. People seem to think something miraculous happens when you win the game, and then you get there and the credits roll, and you're like "That's it?" So I play a video game purely for moving on to the next level, just to be able to explore new places and find secret passageways and things. I love racing games as well...it's so much fun to win new cars and paints and things, but I suck at winning. :)

I will keep that in my thoughts, Wil. It looks like a very worthy cause, and I would be there if I lived anywhere near the vicinity LOL. Have fun!

Hey, saw Numb3ers this past Friday. Good stuff! I was really tired that night and fell asleep, missing about 15 minutes of it, but I saw all the parts with you in it. It was very enjoyable!

I agree with your position on the writers strike. I hope to be a WGA member myself someday, and I think they are right to argue for better wages.

People like your friend Andrew are good to have around when we need someone with a "Red Pen of Doom" to edit the hell out of our work. I had an editor with one of those pens...and I am thanking her more now than ever for using it on my work like she did. Happy Anniversary as well to you and your wife! I hope you guys had a great day!

That's some pretty awesome imagery conveyed in just two small paragraphs. I like to write short fiction, but I find flash fiction easier. I'm writing one now (it may not turn into flash fiction) about a family who owns a boat rental place on a lake (haven't decided which lake yet), and they have some problems with the retrieval of some jet skis (when the main char. finds them, he sees some bullet holes in one of them, and the other is capsized). The story escalates from there. I'm hoping it turns out good! So yeah, back to my original point. Fiction like that guy wrote is good to feed off of if you're looking for some inspiration. Good stuff.
