I am become Death

My apologies to Robert Oppenheimer for the title, but I'm sick y'all. It might be plague or the black lung. Either way, I've been sneezing, coughing and honking my way through the weekend.

The upside of my illness is that I've plowed through about 10 episodes of Rome: Season 1 on DVD. I love this show. I love Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo so very much. I like this only a little less than the Wire, which is to give it high praise. HBO makes the best shows on TV. So go out and rent this, if you haven't already.

And the other exciting news of the weekend was my brother buying a car. We went to brunch this morning at Deluxe Town Diner in Watertown and I had their full stack of pancakes. So good. I didn't even mind that I couldn't taste a thing with this cold. And then we stopped by the nearby dealership where Ross made the deal. So the car should be ready tomorrow evening. 2005 Jeep Wrangler, hard top, sand color, manual with 11K miles. Nice job little brother.

I've taken my Nyquil and I'm off to sleep.

Poor guy! Feel better. Rome does indeed kick ass. Season 2, not quite as much, though.

Well, now I understand why you only made about 243 references to ROME this past weekend, binging on 10 episodes will do that....at least it wasn't a Scott Baio is 45 and single marathon or we would have had a million references to Chachi at the wedding....speaking of Charles in Charge, random aside here, but most people think that Nicole Eggert was the "looker" of that show, but I would argue that plastic surgery can only take you so far (http://www.imdb.com/gallery/granitz/1037/wi20010215_NicoleEggert_Granitz_144812.jpg.html?path=pgallery&path_key=Eggert%2C%20Nicole&seq=20), to me, Ms Josie Davis has been long overlooked....(http://www.imdb.com/gallery/granitz/5927/Events/5927/13420041_400.jpg?path=pgallery&path_key=Davis,%20Josie), OK, this is random, 14 hour plane flights do that to me....
