Happiest Place on Earth...

It's Sunday night, my sister and I are about to go see Fantasmic! at Disneyland, but we decide to go on Pirates of the Caribbean first. As we exit, I look over and walking by one of the shops is a familiar face.

I have to think... I know him, but I don't know him...

And then it hits me.

"Hey," I whisper to my sister, "do you know who that guy is that we just passed?"

She looks back, "Nope."

"Cameron Crowe."

"Cool," she says as we walk on.

Cool indeed.

More on Disneyland to come...

Out of site...

...Out of my mind

Well, kiddies, I'm going to be off for a few days to "The Happiest Place on Earth." No, not some sleazy gay bar in The City (although, there's a lot to be said for that), I'm going to Disneyland! Going to spend some quality time with one of my older brother's kids.

Someone TiVo the Olympics for me!

More Dick Jokes...

The late night talk show hosts are having a field day at our heart & soulless dictat… er, Vice President.

Thanks to the Wall Street Journal’s Brooks Barnes, here is a recap of the best bits from last night:

The Daily Show With Jon Stewart
A partial transcript:

Jon Stewart: "Yes, as you've just heard, a near-tragedy over the weekend in south Texas. Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot a man during a quail hunt at a political supporter's ranch. Making 78-year-old Harry Whittington the first person shot by a sitting VP since Alexander Hamilton.

"Hamilton, of course, shot in a duel with Aaron Burr over issues of honor, integrity and political maneuvering. Whittington? Mistaken for a bird.

* * * * *
The other player in the drama? Ranch owner and eyewitness Katharine Armstrong.

Katharine Armstrong: "We were shooting a covey of quail. The vice president and two others got out of the car to walk up the covey."

Jon Stewart: "What kind of hunting story begins with getting out of your car? As I sighted the great beast before us, my shaking hands could barely engage the parking brake. Slowly, I turned off the A/C and silenced my sub-woofers…"

* * * * *
Katharine Armstrong: "A bird flushed. The vice president took aim at the bird and shot and unfortunately, Mr. Whittington was in the line of fire and got peppered pretty well."

Jon Stewart: "Peppered. There you have it. Harry Whittington, seasoned to within an inch of his life.

* * * * *
Jon Stewart: "I'm joined now by our own vice-presidential firearms mishap analyst, Rob Corddry. Rob, obviously a very unfortunate situation. How is the vice president handling it?

Rob Corddry: "Jon, tonight the vice president is standing by his decision to shoot Harry Wittington. According to the best intelligence available, there were quail hidden in the brush. Everyone believed at the time there were quail in the brush.

"And while the quail turned out to be a 78-year-old man, even knowing that today, Mr. Cheney insists he still would have shot Mr. Whittington in the face. He believes the world is a better place for his spreading buckshot throughout the entire region of Mr. Whittington's face."

Jon Stewart: "But why, Rob? If he had known Mr. Whittington was not a bird, why would he still have shot him?"

Rob Corddry: "Jon, in a post-9-11 world, the American people expect their leaders to be decisive. To not have shot his friend in the face would have sent a message to the quail that America is weak."

Jon Stewart: "That's horrible."

Rob Corddry: "Look, the mere fact that we're even talking about how the vice president drives up with his rich friends in cars to shoot farm-raised wingless quail-tards is letting the quail know 'how' we're hunting them. I'm sure right now those birds are laughing at us in that little 'covey' of theirs.

Jon Stewart: "I'm not sure birds can laugh, Rob."

Rob Corddry: "Well, whatever it is they do … coo .. they're cooing at us right now, Jon, because here we are talking openly about our plans to hunt them. Jig is up. Quails one, America zero.

Jon Stewart: "Okay, well, on a purely human level, is the vice president at least sorry?"

Rob Corddry: "Jon, what difference does it make? The bullets are already in this man's face. Let's move forward across party lines as a people … to get him some sort of mask."

The Late Show With David Letterman
"Good news ladies and gentleman, we have finally located weapons of mass destruction … It's Dick Cheney."

* * * * *
"We can't get Bin Laden, but we nailed a 78-year-old attorney."

* * * * *
"Honestly, I don't know what all of the fuss is about. What's more American than shooting your hunting buddy in the ass?"

* * * * *
"The guy who got gunned down is a Republican lawyer and a big Republican donor and fortunately the buck shot was deflected by wads of laundered cash. So he's fine. He took a little in the wallet."

* * * * *
From "Cheney's Excuses," Monday night's Top 10 list: "I thought the guy was trying to go gay cowboy on me."

Jimmy Kimmel Live
Among the jokes in consideration for Monday's telecast:

"Luckily, the guy he shot was wearing the body armor that never got shipped to the troops."

* * * * *
"You know what they say, if Dick Cheney comes out of his hole and shoots an old man in the face, 6 more weeks of winter."

The Tonight Show with Jay Leno
"Although it is beautiful here in California, the weather back East has been atrocious. There was so much snow in Washington, D.C. Dick Cheney accidentally shot a fat guy thinking it was a polar bear."

* * * * *
"When people found out he shot a lawyer his popularity is now at 92%"

* * * * *
"Something I just found out today about the incident. Do you know that Dick Cheney tortured the guy for a half hour before he shot him?"

Poor dick...

February has not had much love for Dick: First, Scooter Libby is rolling over on him about the "leaks" coming out of the White House. Mike Brown continued the way of Scooter and Jack Abramoff by informing Congress that the White House knew of the levee breaks the night they happened and they simply ignored the problem. Then the report on blame for the Katrina disaster supported Brown's claims by putting much of the blame on the White House. And now, in a deliciously awkward moment Dick "I'm all for the NRA" Cheney has shot some guy while hunting. Did he think it was Scooter? A member of PETA? A Democrat?

Well, if there's a silver lining to this, it is this: he shot a Republican.*

One almost wonders if God is flinging as much crap as he can at these guys so something sticks to them... or they get buried under it all.

*I didn't say silver lining for him...

I took a "What kind of gay are you?" quiz. Note that I scored a ZERO on "Straight," but I guess that makes me a big ole cuddly bear... (awwww).

Take the quiz yourself here.

Poseidon Adventure Quiz

Have you ever wondered what character you were most like in The Poseidon Adventure?* The funny folks at Hell in a Handbag Procuctions, the creators of the "hit" musicals SCARRIE - The Musical and POSEIDON! An Upside-Down Musical, find the answer for you. So play the "There's Got to be a Morning After Quiz," and see who you most resemble.

I'm Rogo. I'm a little pissed at that (I wanted to be Stella Stevens**). I can always take it again... and so can you. Take the test and see if you survive!

Be sure to let me know who you "are."

*Neither did I, but shut up and go with it...
**Kidding. I wanted to be the groovy Gene Hackman (renegade preacher in a turtleneck!)

I stumbled across this odd site, and found this really cool page: make yourself (or your own character) from the Simpsons. The above is me... or as close as I could get. I think that's how I feel at work most days. I'm not sure who is throwing the paper airplane at me, but I hate them...
