The post I did on Friday and forgot to hit publish

It's nice and toasty in the house today.  I have not stepped out of it because of all the large snowflakes that have almost buried my truck.  No need to go anywhere I have food, drink and shelter.  Yeah... well I call bullshit on myself because when I was working this would just be another snowy day. Put the truck in 4 wheel drive and get on  with it. Now I'm a little fraidy cat....ooooohhhh look at the snoowwwww... I can't handle the snowwwwwwwww.. Nah really I was just stinking lazy today and didn't give a rat's ass. 

I don't know about you guys but  I love me a sitcom that is funny.. The Office is my fav. .  I missed most of it while I was working.  Now I have been following the re-runs on our cable religiously I think I am closer to getting up to date. . Today Pam and Jim got married in Niagara Falls. My heart melted just a little bit.  Because I have been waiting for this for so long.  I especially liked the part when Dwight kicked the bridesmaid face in the dance coming down the isle at their wedding.  And the parts where Pam and Jim were on the boat in Niagara Falls......it was so nice.  Even this defensive old girl liked it...without any slapstick.

I have been accused of loving dark humour .... and I guess I do.  Sometimes .. The Office does that in it's way.  I love anything ridiculous...but it better be well written and get to that funny bone I have lodged in my brain. 

My brother and  I grew up listening to George Carlin, Bill Cosby and the likes. Thow in a little of Cheech and Chong  and we laughed our asses off. 

Sometimes I try to watch a regular sitcom.....and wonder why did they put so much effort to look and sound stupid.



These shows were before there time.

All in the Family addressed ....real family issues you would never have done in those days .. plus prejudice. They addressed black issues, woman's rights, and many more.  I loved that show...and used that information while I was still a grasshopper.

Mash addressed.. the wars we have never seen in our life time. And doing it with humour. Taking what was a serious situation and still giving us a humorous  yet human side to it.

Golden Girls addressed..  Aging.  And how we could expect to live with it ...with humour.

As my dad used to say:  "see you in the funny papers."

And have you noticed how in series television lately they are portraying women as male fantasies (you don't want to have sex? they say to the tired man when they awake. don't worry, i'll do all the work. HMPH. AS IF.) rather than realistically, at all? I hate to think what young women are being taught to aspire to.

There are 3 shows I like that aren't comedies. 3 that make me laugh are Big Bang Theory, 2 1/2 Men, and S#&* My Dad Says. Mash and Cheech and Chong were great!
