On tv the "can you hear me now?" guy is floating under a bridge and asking his inane lil question every two feet.

My father says: "what's he gonna do one of these days when someone says 'no'?"

yeah.

Apparently my father is still baffled by the idea of commercials and how they aren't *real* *life*.

Either that or he just got way too damned much sun today and it upped his stupid quotient.



Check out those eyebrows ::nods::
He used to be intimidatingly bulky in the chest and arms. Age has made the bulk ooze south.


I saw My Big Fat Greek Wedding today and it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. It was weird seeing Lanie Kazan and Andrea Martin pretending to be greek... but I think they pulled it off without being *too* over the top. I think it managed to show a lot of the "kookiness" of othodox greek living without mocking it, but apparently the waspy fucks in the audience didn't really get the point of the movie.
The old woman behind me explained to her watching partner that the "what happened to your nose" line was funny becuase 'greeks have big noses, ya know.. I mean .. just look at the mother...'(the mother being the JEWISH Lanie Kazan) I moved around in my seat a lot after that. Let her try to watch around me.
Lots of italian greeks in the movie too. heh.

well, you know, we red sea pedestrians AND italians AND greeks all look alike, y'know ;-)

(especially my cousin, who is a red sea pedestrian AND italian, all at the same time.)

heh.. the thing about it that was the *most* odd was the "chicago accent". It was like a cross between brooklyn and wisconsin. Very weird.

Your dad could probably kill me if he smiled.
