Clearing My Thoughtcicles.....

Is it Friday already? The week just flew by, of course I was out sick a day so that may have something to do with it. I'm almost ashamed to say I'm taking next Tuesday off so I can to a midnight sale of Grand Theft Auto 4, then pass out on the couch playing. Damn you addictive personality and your wily manipulative ways!
Anyway, it being Friday means I spent last night in TV land bliss as Lost came back both barrels blazing (literally) and finding a funny line in 30 Rock was as easy as taking candy from one of those guys who give out candy at gay night clubs.
It feels like the Rock is starting to get it's feet back. The writers strike really had an effect on the momentum of the show, and I'm sure Tina Fey promoting a new movie, and probably putting finishing touches on it and an SNL appearance while these episodes filmed couldn't help any. Still, 30 Rock is like pizza...or fisting, even when it's bad it's good.
Last nights episode had a lot going for it. Donaghy and Geiss have great chemistry, but Donaghy and Banks are even better. Liz out of her element is always good. Can anyone be more awkward then Liz Lemon in a pantsuit?
So let's run down the favorite bits:

Jack regarding his promotion to Geiss:
I want my mother to know this before she dies so she can go to her grave a defeated woman.

Shirtless Tracy, dancing in the middle of his sons class crying:
If I'm such a bad dad, why are we all dancing?

Jack:'s so ethnic.

my son is ashamed of his father.
That's horrible. Everyone knows the only thing we should be ashamed of is our bodies.

Liz on molesting Banks in the elevator: To get through it I pretended he was a sandwich.

Franks explanation in Star Wars terms to Tracy on why a porn video game can't be made, (the valley) and Dr. Spaceman calling 911 for Diabetes repair had me rolling as well as Liz' disdain for Banks (he reminds me of me, yesterday) then handing Jack a tampon (which he places in his breast pocket like a cigar) for feeling bad for Banks were all great moments.

My favorite of the night
Tracy: My genius has come alive, like toys when your back is turned.

Truer words have not been spoken.
have a great weekend all......

I apologize for never being around to talk LOST these past few days. Ben whipping the gun out of the piano bench and the fucking smoke monster (!) both gave me Lost boners. Yep, two boners in one hour. I should see a doctor.

Reminder--our cookout pre-Iron Man is on! Friday 6:30ish, for a 10PM digital projection viewing at VA Cnter Commons. Get your tix early, so's you don't get sold out!
