    I agree with you about Cook’s opening monologue, Pete. What’s with the (weak) stand-up routine? It felt forced and out of place on SNL.

    The show did have a few good bits. I enjoyed the Homeland Security sketch and the opening of Weekend Update. I think there were a few other funny moments, but none are sticking out in my head (which probably says something about it).

    I tried SNL again sometime during the 90s, haven’t gone back since. In fact, funniest part is that the episodes I enjoyed most were reruns from before my time. Go figure.

    Nipper sounds like an awesome dog, but then I think most dogs are awesome. Good to hear you, the ACN, and the monkey had such a great time.

    I absolutely loathe Dane Cook. He’s a no talent ass clown. Sounds like you had fun with your nieces.

    I read “If You Give A Pig A Pancake,” to my little nieces, which is soooo cute. I highly recommend reading that book to ACN and the monkey, while making pancakes. :-)

    I love hearing about time spent with ACN…or should I say, “Esmerelda?” The word I think of when I read your accounts of her is: Jubilation.

    SNL. Ok. I watched it. And [ducking from the rotten tomatoes I am sure will be chucked at my head] I am a Dane Cook fan. HAVING SAID THAT, I thought his first appearance on the show was far better than this one. And, though I like his stand-up (and too-tight tees, Mr. DeWolf…if that is your real name), I agree it is really out of place for an SNL monologue. He should follow the pattern of a three minute ditty, offer up a “The Killers are here tonight!” and a hearty “Don’t go away…we’ll be right back!”

    And I just have to say (because I know you’ll agree), that I LOVE “HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER!” Last night’s episode? Brilliant. The calves? Snorted Crystal Light through my nose.


    I think this comment was longer than my own post for today!

    I changed channels before the monologue was over. Not that SNL is ever really good, but I usually try to make it to the first sketch if I watch. Dane Cook sucks.

    Psst, Peter, it’s National Novel Writing Month next month (though techincally it’s International. Write a 50,000 word (~175 page) novel in one month. Just crank that puppy out.

    I’m giving it a shot, are you game?

    Man. I haven’t even bother to watch SNL in years…

    That show has fallen so far.

    Dave: I read someplace that the opening of Weekend update was funny as well. Still haven’t built up the nerve to watch the rest of the show. Haven’t deleted it though… yet.

    James: Had a ton of fun with the twerps and the pooch. I could do without the toe nibbling though. (Whoa… prom night flashbacks.)

    jennie: Thanks, I’ll keep an eye out for that book!

    k-m: HIMYM is sooo awesome. I loved the second episode the most so far this season. It was Barney to the core.

    lg: You and I could watch TV together.

    James pt. 2: I am working on a project right now, but hopefully will get it done this month. And I dooo have an idea for a novel. November, eh? Okay, I’m in!

    Steve: I am sooooooo with you, man.
