Thank you...a million times....


"Just a little lower and more fun..."


To those who scolded me for not watching "House, M.D." (Heather, Sam), I THANK YOU A MILLION ZILLION TIMES OVER. I now have one more crush. Honestly I've thought Hugh Laurie was a dish since he guest-starred on one of the Friends wedding episodes (disgruntled Brit on a plane who scolded Rachel for being self-centered). I forgot about him through the years, but BOY HOWDY did I recognize him when I started seeing commercials for House. But did I watch it? No, no. Andi has to jump on the cutie-tooter bandwagon 10 mins after the rest of the ladies.


This show is HILAAARIOUS. And dramatic. Seriously, where else on network TV are you going to find a scruffy, smartass doctor (no, no this isn't the unusual part yet...here it comes...) who will pick a tick off a woman's pubic area IN A HIJACKED ELEVATOR while she's hanging on the verge of heart failure in order to save her life? HOUSE! House, I tell you!

Watch the fuck out. I've just found my new favorite show. And I would be fine if Hugh Laurie decided he wanted to get freaky. I like 'em scruffy, old, and dependent on a cane.

  1. Hee. This just started last week over here, I didn't watch the first show because, well, medical drama. But I did record it because I'd heard so much about how great it was and figured if I was bored I could give it a go.

    Watched it last night while waiting for BSG, and it is fantastic. House is such a great character. But I am never eating again after hearing about tapeworms. yrch!

  3. Oooooooo I adore Hugh Laurie! And House is THE best show! Now, take a very good look at Mr. Laurie? Don't you get the sense you've seen him someplace before? You have! He played Mr. Little opposite Geena Davis' Mrs. Little in the Stuart Little movies! COMPLETELY different look, huh.

    *drool on the House look*

  4. Just what you need, another celebrity crush.

    By the way, I'm glad that you're jumping on the Ani DiFranco bandwagon. I'll burn you some more of her CD's, as I have them all.

  6. Fence, tapeworms gross me out too. Uggg. Worms of any sort, actually.

    LOL, Heather. I do lurv it hard. Who is the guy living with him?? I'm so behind!

    Vixen, I remember him in that role!! Love him all the way around...from nerdy to scruffy.

    Elise, I will be your personal slave if you burn some of her CD's for me. And I do need another celeb crush. I still have a few minutes of my day not devoted to school work or sexual fantasies.

    Os, you're a good man. You can just hobble and lean on Michelle if you want.

  7. That is Dr. Wilson, House's best friend and Watson to his Sherlock. He's living there because his (third, fourth, I've lost track) wife was having an affair and he left her. He's adorable. I loved their college, frat guy antics last night.

    You should definitely invest in season one, if you can find it. It's brilliant.

  8. Their college guy antics were classic. I loved it when House's cane busted up!

    Totally buying it on DVD. Sometime when I'm not up to my neck in work. hehehe

  9. Yeha, you might want to wait for summer. I watched it straight through in like 3 nights after work. Totally avoided all house work. I need to do that again.

    I really want you to see the one called "Three Stories." It was brilliant.

  11. Scruffy, old and dependent upon a cane? I think I may be your dream date then ;)

  12. I'll pay extra special close attention to that episode Heather. I know I wouldn't do ANYTHING else until I finished the season, so I'll wait a bit. :) That's why I haven't bought Brokeback Mountain or The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe yet!

    Greep, I LOVED THAT LINE! That tick grossed me out though. lol

    Come on over, Cincy! We'll road trip it to New Mexico. I'll drive, you nap with your mouth hanging open!

  14. Andi, thanks for the link! :):)

  15. NON, you must! MUST!! You'll love the snark.

    Vixen, no problem! I *heart* your blog!

  16. Is it possible you have in mind other uses for that cane than just a walking stick?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Quill, I won't deny the possiblity that the cane could come in handy. Who knows when one might need to kill a spider or spank someone.

  18. You do like em old, don't you! I never watch medical shows. It wasn't a conscious decision, but I know it's because my ex is a doctor.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Catie, that would probably steer me away from medical shows, too!!!
