Define "a Life"...

Off The Hook

One problem with having a day off and spending most of it around the house is that I need to actively opt to ignore phone spam. I know it's not much of an effort. Actually, I know it's mostly a passive thing -- I just choose to not answer the phone. But I'm here when it rings, damn it, and that makes it actively intrusive.

There're reasons door-to-door salesmen died out...

p.s. -- Eric Schwartz has a cathartically venomous song about this, which (not surprisingly) is not readily available on his website.

Greg wonders...

... why are there no classic Warner Bros. cartoons on TV these days?

Of course, I could be wrong about this. It may be that I've not stumbled across them. But I have a day off from work today, and the TV is blathering in the background for company as I get things done around the house (or, as is the case at the moment, procrastinate by wasting time online) and in my aimless channel surfing I passed some old MGM Tom & Jerry cartoons. (I also passed something on USA that featured the hilarious out-of-context line "That woman is a Godless multiculturalist.") The Tom & Jerry made me think, "hey, I haven't seen Looney Tunes or any such on TV in quite a while," and got me to wondering why?

There's a little empty spot in my soul, which aches to be filled periodically by Bugs Bunny. And muppets.

Later, Canada

A day may come, but that day is not today.
