My Favorite Comedian

Plinky asked, “Who’s your favorite come­di­an? Is there any­one you can’t stand?”

George Car­lin May 12 1937 — June 22 2008

George Car­lin is the King of Come­di­ans as far as I’m con­cerned. He’s always hilar­i­ous. I love watch­ing old clips and read­ing his books. His death was a huge loss to the world and came far too ear­ly. It cer­tain­ly doesn’t hurt that he shared my lack of respect for reli­gion.

I see no rea­son to name come­di­ans I can’t stand and give them atten­tion, but pure­ly phys­i­cal com­e­dy leaves me cold, as does any­thing that involves pick­ing on mem­bers of the audi­ence.

Gone Already?

Wow. This has been a very short week. I’m sure it doesn’t feel that way to my poor Sam, but it does to me. That’s what hap­pens when you sleep through most of it, I sup­pose. I’ve avoid­ed acknowl­edg­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ty that Katie AND I have mono, but I have the same symp­toms she does, and nei­ther of us are get­ting any bet­ter.

My dreams are increas­ing­ly weird. I have to think that I’ve slept so much that my brain is done with ordi­nary pro­cess­ing, so now it’s dredg­ing up All That Weird Shit. Increased hyp­n­a­gog­ic episodes, oh joy. I hate those!
