With up to 4" of snow predicted, I had to cancel last night's Monmouth Writer's meeting at Manalapan.
On the bright side, it gave me time to watch the latest episodes of The Closer and The Big Bang Theory.
First The Closer. After four seasons, I find Brenda Lee Johnson's selfishness a little off-putting at times, but Monday night's episode, Junk in the Trunk, was a cracker. Without spoiling it for anyone, the opening five minutes contained one of the funniest (and most gross - but in a good way), pieces of physical comedy I've seen in quite awhile. It was made all the more entertaining by some of the tasteless jokes made by the characters after it happened.
Nearing the end of its second season,The Big Bang Theory just keeps on getting better. Aside from Firefly's Jayne Cobb, I can't think of another creepy character (when it comes to how he interacts with women), I've enjoyed as much as Howard Wolowitz. Just when you think he can't get any more skin-crawling, he lowers the bar another notch. As for Jim Parsons, who plays Sheldon, I hope the guy gets some recognition for the incredible job he's done with the role.
Even Psych, which seemed to be running out of steam in it's third season, picked itself up with last week's episode .
The only other TV shows I watch on a regular basis are Fringe and Burn Notice. I'm on the final episode of the Burn Notice season one dvd, with the latest new episodes recorded. It's good, but not quite great. As for Fringe, I haven't a clue what it's about, or where it's going, but I don't care. Denethor (or John Noble, as others know him), is so entertaining as Walter that I keep coming back for more.
Now I'm off to finish shovelling the yard.
Dreadful joke of the day (from a guy I met at Barnes & Noble this morning):
What did Budda say to the hot-dog salesman? - One... with everything.
