I am for real sticking to this plan.

Every time I check this, I will post. Seriously. I won't even cheat, not even once. How 'bout that, Waple? Too bad there's no way to prove it...

So, I'm flipping back and forth between the New Hampshire primaries and the Bulls game. The Bulls are barely beating the Knicks, and Clinton is barely beating Obama. My analysis: The Bulls need Deng to be healthy. As for the primaries, if you're going to vote blue, it's safe to already start thinking about voting for the Democrat who will appeal to the most people in this country - no matter the political party, the race, the gender, etc. Why? Because no matter how much you love one candidate, there's the slight possibility that another candidate stands a better chance (and it just so happens that the candidates are strong this year). As for voting red, I always liked McCain, at least until he became Bush's lapdog.

That's it for now.

Until we meet again, whoever's reading this...

All right, all right. I've checked a lot of times without posting, but I've still posted twice in the last month, which I think is more than ever for me. It's nice to see other people writing on this thing finally, including Brad and Ben.

And yes, the Bulls need Deng. I was also bummed that Barack didn't win in NH. Two losses for Illinois on one night...
I also saw Between Barack and a Hard Place - the now old show running at The Second City, my favorite place on earth after having my face between two boobies. Haha. I just said boobies. It was a great show and made me miss improv comedy a lot. I highly recommend seeing it for anyone. I recommend seeing any Second City show... I even got to talk to a guy who writes for Conan and used to perform there named Kevin Dorff. I think he was surprised someone not only recognized him but knew his name. Sigh. I love Chicago. Except for these blasted winters.

Is "Between Barack and a Hard Place" still running? I've been meaning to see at least one Second City show. Would that be a good one?

Waple said...

It is still running, but the original show will only be there till this Sunday. So if you want to see Between Barack and a HARD PLACE go before this sunday (and call in advance for tix because I believe they've all been sold out since it started running like 9 months ago). However, after sunday they will start a new show called Between Barack and A NEW SHOW. The difference is that it'll have the really good scenes from this current show, but adding in new stuff that will be in the next show. Also, if you want to see the new show, I can get you a 20% discount if you see it on Tues,Wed, Thurs, or Sunday. Let me know and I'll give you the details.

I should clarify, if you want a discount on Between Barack and a New Show then I can get that for you. Not on the new new show whenever that starts running... And yes, it was a great show, so get to it if you can before its last showing this Sunday.

Somebody made the good point lately that what will happen to Clinton if she ends up being the democratic frontrunner is exactly what just happened in the recent Indianapolis Mayoral race (not that you care)- but there was so much question about the qualifications and "experience" of the democrat that the GOP won by default.

Dummies.

Waple- I want in on some discounts later in the year. Details! Hook it up!

Palmer- Yeah, people need to consider which candidate appeals to the most people in the entire nation. I have to admit, John McCain is one candidate who doesn't exactly box himself off in a corner (as in, religion isn't an issue with him as it is with Huckabee and Romney). Time will tell... some hopeful news for liberals: More than 2/3 of Americans know the Democratic front runners and less than 1/4 know the Republican front runners. I like that fact, but it could be bad...
