The Fisher King

I happened upon a rerun last night of the concluding episode of the two-part Criminal Minds story called “The Fisher King.” You know, the one that featured a psychotic murderer who believed he was the Fisher King, and that FBI agent Dr. Spencer Reid was Percival, arrived to ask the healing question…

WTF Did That Guy Eat?

If you ever needed a reminder of why you should not eat food off of the floor, this “RidicuList” segment from last night’s Anderson Cooper 360 should be the absolute final word on that! 😯

Your Hump Day Nightmare…

Despite all its beauty, the change of seasons is not without its drawbacks as well – particularly for us “aging” folks with arthritis. In addition to the usual pains in my neck, shoulders and back, I’ve been living for the last month or so with a pain that feels like some idiot doctor broke a needle off in my right hip and decided to simply leave it there.

Is My TV Is Out To Get Me?
