the five things i fell in love with today...

1) Steve Martin.

3) Jack Palance, and the one armed pushups.
4) the hope that ABC and Cablevision will come to their senses in another hour or so.
5) either way, the guy from the other cable company is coming over tomorrow to give me more reliable service, a cheaper price, and, just because i'm handsome, the NFL network as well!
