Dear Family and Friends, Is it possible a year has passed since my last impersonal over-informative photocopied holiday update? I can hardly believe it’s only been a year since the United Nations abolished religious holidays in favour of the non-offensive, all-inclusive, Snowflake Day. In addition to my crippling bunions from last year, I have also been diagnosed with corns. But in this happy season, we all have to be thankful. Thankful that the plantar warts in my other foot have finally been removed, save one, I call him Gary; and he’s part of the family now, he’d better buy me a good present! And after fifty-two hours, I finally passed… Read More »Jolly Snowflake Day, Everyone!
5) How I Met Your Mother First off, Willow’s in it! She’s dreamy. Secondly, Doogie’s hilarious. Finally, it’s damn funny. 4) The Mighty Boosh This BBC3 comedy focuses on Howard Moon (an incompetent, small-eyed jazz fan), Vince Noir (a fashion conscious simpleton), Naboo (a shaman), Bollo (a gorilla) and Bob Fossill (the manager of the zoo the main characters work in during the first series). Each series has a different theme, during the first, the cast work in a zoo, the second, they’re roommates, the third, they work in Naboo’s shop.

Been watching Cheers lately, I grew up on this show, and it’s always been awesome. Watching it as an adult you see very different things, like when Woody says a line that was very obviously written for Coach, or just how much of an asshole Sam is. In this episode, Cliff gets a girlfriend… yes, that Cliff. He’s ashamed of his girlfriend, and won’t take her to Cheers, until after he puts her through a makeover. Am I the only insane one who thinks she’s much better looking pre-makeover?
I really don’t know what to make of this episode. At times it was silly, but not necessarily in a good way, at times it was dark, but kind of hokey. I don’t really find that the Doctor’s behaviour is really believable. David Tennant’s Doctor is not the Doctor to presume such might over lower-beings (ie. Humans), I could see Christopher Eccelston’s Doctor in that stance, but not Tennant’s. Also, what’s with the burning fire on the surface of Mars? Yes, Mars has atmosphere, but I doubt it’s thick enough to support a burning flame. Though, I did really enjoy the episode.
