BRP 93: Take Two Edition

This week Derek, Deeps and I like this episode so much that we recorded it twice. Anyway, we discussed the penultimate episode of the first season of In Plain Sight (the term "awesomely bad" is used), Eureka, Burn Notice, The Middleman and we speculate about what might happen next on The Venture Brothers. Plus we get a few phone calls!

While you were out


Look - the neighbors!
Originally uploaded by nopity.
Hey friends! How was the honeymoon? Was it all you hoped it would be and more? I hope you guys had fun.

Yeah, it's been raining since you got married. Hard to believe, I know.

So a couple things happened while you were away. Your apartment is really cute. That kitchen is huge! But. Uhm. Mostly this happened. The ceiling in your bathroom collapsed.

As best as we can tell, it probably happened shortly after you closed the door to your apartment and left the country. Things like this happen. In fact, according to this highly detailed spreadsheet of things we predicted might go wrong on your trip, this was very likely to happen.

Yes, we had a pool. We bet on your tragedy. Just remember, comedy is tragedy that happens to other people. Besides, we were going to buy you a beer with our winnings.

And frankly, looking at this photo, can you blame us for betting?

We think it is mostly fixed now. Thank goodness you didn't leave the landlord's phone number in a convenient location. That would have made things too easy!

Oh and we have your cat. You know, she's the one who tipped us off initially - little white paw prints were everywhere. Don't worry - she's fine.

But for your sake, I hope you brought us home something better than a t-shirt.

BRP 92: Arch Nemesis Edition

This week Derek and I add a new dimension to our relationship. And Deeps helps us figure out what to think about time-traveling dinosaurs on Primeval, subtle explosions on Burn Notice, a Ghostbusters homage on Middleman, the benefits of arching on The Venture Brothers, and the Olympics.

Then Deeps and I spend a little time talking about a restored version of Monsieur Verdoux starring Charlie Chaplin.

Worse than Mosquito Bites

Earlier this week I mentioned getting the tetanus booster when I went in for a routine doctor visit. That was Monday morning.

Today is Friday morning.

Deeps noticed a large lump on my left shoulder.

Deeps: Uhm - what's wrong with your arm?
Me: Oh that? It's the tetanus shot.
Deeps: That looks bad.
Me: I think it might be getting bigger.
Deeps: Does it hurt?
Me: Yes. And it itches!
Deeps: Is that supposed to happen?
Me: I have no idea. I'm afraid to look it up on the Internet.
Deeps: You should probably call the doctor.
Me: Why? So she can take out my other arm?

So all week I've been walking around to my friends going "Hey, you wanna touch something gross?" and then make them feel the huge, hard lump on my arm.

Nobody has turned me down yet. That's why we're friends!

Boosters

So I went into the doctor today for a routine check-up. Nothing major, but at the end of our friendly visit my doctor took one last look at my chart.

Doctor: Looks like we wanted to give you a tetanus booster shot in 2004, but you said you were current.
Me: I probably was.
Doctor: That was four years ago, are you still current?
Me: How bad is it?
Doctor: Not that bad.
Me: I'm a big baby about needles.
Doctor: A lot of people are.
Me: It's not that bad anymore?
Doctor: No, it's really not that bad.
Me: I think I'm due. I'll do it.

A few minutes later the nurse came in to administer the shot.
Nurse: So what are do you not need as much today?
Me: What?
Nurse: Which arm to you write with?
Me: The right. But I like to use both arms. Every day.
Nurse: Left it is!
Me: The doctor said it wasn't that bad anymore.
Nurse: It isn't.
Me: That should be on the side of the package.
