Anxiety relief: Craig Ferguson
It's been almost a week since surgery and I'm entering the zone where I'm getting anxious for absolutely no reason.¬† I've got great home health nurses that come every other day and tend to me.¬† My vital signs are still there.¬† Hey, like Keith Richards said "It's great to be here....It's great to be anywhere!"¬†
Maybe it was the call from the bank telling me that someone was trying to charge things at Wal-Mart on my credit card.¬† They were ringing up quite a little bill too.¬† Hey identity thief, I know where you live and where you shop you piece of work.¬† Thanks for stressing out my day while I'm trying to heal.¬† Ever hear of Karma?¬† Hope a load of it drops on your pointed head.
Anyway, I was desperately in need of a giggle...a guffaw...a belly laugh without the belly being involved because of surgery.¬† Something rediculous yet intelligent.¬† Immediately I thought of Craig Ferguson.¬† I had some on the DVR!¬† Oh good!¬† So I settled down and as usual the description of guests was half right.¬† that's how the show goes sometimes.¬† People talk longer than they are supposed to, people don't show up, you know...talk show stuff.¬† Anyway, the reason I was excited about one show was that Eric Idol was on.¬† The two of them were hilarious.¬† Timing was fantastic.¬† They are both so smart and funny.¬† Being a Monty Python fan from way way back, it was like the most delicious little TV moment.¬†My mood was lifted!¬†
Then I went for the second show¬†where Craig's ¬†guest was John Waters.¬† I'm feeling so much better now that I can actually attempt this blog.¬† John Waters is bizarre and hilarious and that's without even saying one word.¬† Love his crazy movies.¬† He's always a great interview and he and Ferguson took conversation to a new level of double entendre goodness.¬† Dandy!¬† I'm feeling better now.
I should follow this with a replaying of "The Hangover" or "I Love You, Man" ¬†just to make sure I stay this way as I drift off to sleep.¬† Send me ideas for funny movies.¬† Even if I've seen them, I would probably enjoy them again.¬† I need a funny book to read too.¬† I just finished two sad ones and I can't go there right now.¬† I need comedy.¬† Laughing heals, rock heals.¬† And really great home nurses too.
Give yourself a large embrace for me.¬†
