It's true. I was forcibly evicted from Hanover for a criminal sentence of three-ish months.

I saw Big Bang Theory for the first time the other day. Had heard people at work talking about it, so had some expectations.

It made me think of Frasier except it's about the worst kind of nerds instead of the worst kind of psychiatrists, so it's uncomfortable far more often than it's funny. Also, it's never funny.

There's that Family Guy gag where they show a clip from Frasier, and Niles is making a "when she sits around the house, she sits AROUND the house" joke, but replacing "house" with "immaculately appointed Tuscan villa", you know, to point out how dressing up a sitcom with big words doesn't make it a smart sitcom. In Big Bang Theory she sits around the particle physics lab, and the line is delivered in a yoda voice.

So fuck that show. God help me, I love Frasier, though, but I think it's because I like watching people who are allegedly smart making awful decisions and who are allegedly good at helping people make relationships work have awful relationships.

(It's uncomfortable because I'm far more familiar with the worst kind of nerd than the psychiatrist of any kind. Familiarity breeds contempt.)

I agree. I, too, hate the show. It reinforces nerd stereotypes, and that bothers me far more than anything else. The tech boom of our generation has expanded the definition of a nerd and shown that a nerd doesn't have to be a weak introvert, but this show comes along to reinforce the age old stereotype.

Apparently someone in my guild lives in Bowling Green, OH. They said that there is a business which will deliver fresh cookies and coffee or milk.

I want to know why Mikey never mentioned this.
