I was watching the Adam Corolla Project and I have to say that Adam is quite an amusing character. His banter always puts a grin on my face. He digressed into musing that the next leap forward in dentistry will be the preemtive darting of patients. Basically, if you have, say, a root canal coming up, you'll be hanging out with your friends and whap! you'll feel a sting in your neck and wake up a few hours later with you mouth packed full of gauze. Presto! no more worrying about going to the dentist as the final pain barrier to dentistry comes down. In other television related observations, David Spade's Showbiz Show is quite funny. Ridonculous, as he puts it.

OTHERWISE: Kat braves the strike in NYC. Damien braves the wrath of Lotus Notes developers. Airbus builds the biggest white whale ever.

At what point did every single squeezable consumable item in my refrigerator switch to upside-down packaging?

Watched Dane Cook on this week's SNL. Wife & I were struck by how much he resembles a cross between Will Ferrell from the show with a little bit of Ryan Reynolds thrown in. (And a touch of Nick Swardson.) I wasn't crazy about the long monologue/stand-up bit, but his sketch with the itchy turtleneck was priceless -perhaps the most original sketch of the season. It doesn't surprise me that Dane was considered for a castmember last year, not after watching him writhe in agony under a huge hairy turtleneck at a holiday party.

Today is our two year anniversary. As I sat watching our wedding video DVD with Lorraine it hit me: It's been a fairy tale where the clock never strikes twelve. What a ride!
