love monkey...
(updated intro 2:21 pm)

hey kids! i'm thinking some of you might be confused by the heading i'm using today... and i'd like to clarify before you spend too much time reading in hopes this is yet, another post about something... er, um... sexual. yes yes, yesterday i rambled on a bit about circumcision, but that doesn't automatically mean i'm going to talk about penises every day, ya know? altho', i guess love monkey is a pretty good penis-related nickname... hold on a tick... you don't think that's why the new cbs show is called love monkey, do ya? nah... me neither. anyway, i just wanted to make sure you knew what you were--and weren't--getting yourselves into before you read on. that is all. thank you for your time.
now... love monkey. good? bad? worth a repeat viewing? here's all i know after my people finally got around to watching the show, and th... what? how'd they do that, you ask? (i heard you ask) well, how do you think they did it? they tivo'd it, of course. yes, kids, thanks to that magical device, mommy and daddy no longer miss out on good/potentially good/intellectually challenging we-should-record-it-just-to-say-we-did-but-then-not-really-watch programs. unless, of course, the power and/or cable go out, in which case, the tivo is a worthless piece of shit... as it was on sunday, when mommy & daddy would have been recording west wing, law & order: criminal intent, and grey's anatomy. they're bitter about missing all 3. they had even considered recording 24, a show they used to watch, but then stopped because they wondered how many more times will jack's wimp-ass daughter show up and find her stupid-ass self faced with peril and how f*cking ridiculous was that whole cougar thing 2 seasons ago, anyway? and, what was the deal with sherry? was she evil? or was she just a conniving bitch? why did she keep popping up when we were sick of her? nevertheless, they were a little curious to see if it would be better this year, but now, they'll never know, because they don't want to try to catch up and they'd rather watch more re-runs of law & order: criminal intent, anyway... ruh-roh! looky there... i've just managed to ADD myself completely off the topic, which is, if i remember correctly, love monkey.
first, let's talk about that title, shall we? love monkey. "love" = good. "monkey" = very good. therefore, love monkey is, according to my people, a veryvery good title... so, right outta the gate, the show is off to a good start. second, let's talk about the star, tom cavanaugh. mommy and daddy reallyreally like this guy and they were fans of his other show, ed. mom says he's cute as a button, and daddy once sat next to him on a flight from los angeles to new york, where daddy says they chatted quite a little bit and that tc seemed like a very nice guy, so, you know... tom cavanaugh = good. yawn. oka-a-ay...ya know what? i'm gonna have to speed things up a bit, because, i just realized i'm already bored with the whole subject of love monkey. pay attention, kids, things are gonna move along pretty fast, now, and you just might miss a worm or two if you're not careful. basically, theprogramshowsalotofpromise. what? you want more? fine. here's justalittlemore: good cast (especially judy greer, who has, apparently, had small roles in every movie ever made over the past few years). good writing (this is important to my people. don't ask me why). as far as i can tell, mommy & daddy thought love monkey was a kind of cross between a film they liked a lot, high fidelity, and a tv show they never watch, sex in the city, but for, ya know, guys. bottom line? because love monkey has some good potential, mommy & daddy will most likely give it a second viewing. happy now?
gosh, look at the time, will ya? i'm sorry, kids, but i have to stop talking about love monkey, because i'm so out-of-my-mind bored i'm about to toss my greenies, which will absolutely piss me off. why-oh-why did i decide to tell you about stupid freaking love monkey in the first place? i haven't a freaking clue. is it because i just like saying "love monkey"? maybe. probably. who gives a shit? what i do know is that i'm done talking about love monkey. now go away, and let me regroup. and don't worry about me, i'm certain to come back with something more interesting than love monkey later on today, like: why does stephen colbert think bears are godless killing machines? or, what are these guys doing out in our front yard? ...ah yes, as you can see, the possibilities are endless. endless, i tell you, endless! but, since the sun is shining, i think i'd like to just go outside for a minute or two, then, maybe snag myself another treat... and most assuredly try to do a little max mind-f*ck (what can i say, he's such an easy target). of course, all this will be ever-so-much-easier after i take my morning nap.

so for some reason my last comment was credited to "jd." Who the hell is "jd?" I was about to get really jealous until I realized I had left the message. Don't why it came up "jd."

I...your husband...love you!
