In honor of the Emmy results for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series, I bring you yet another icon in this sequence.

(Fine. If you want an explanation, Jeremy Piven won for the third year in a row. This year, the nominees, which includes NPH, were the same 5 guys as last year. Where there's a Neal, there's a KBZ joke.)

(I know, it's a bit late to be topical. It took me a while to finish up, what this the whole computer breakdown and everything.)

I'm curious to see if even three people in the universe think this icon makes a lick of sense, much less is amusing.

Since we're on the topic, I never saw anyone address the issue of the relationship between Dr. Horrible and Mr. Horrible. Is Mr. Horrible Dr. Horrible's father? Is his drive for world conquest and revenge fueled by watching his father spend all day in misery on his feet? Is everything we've seen merely a pretext so he can reach Bad Horse's inner circle and finally wreak his monumental vengeance on the Ugliness Men?

[ profile] ross_teneyck sent me the icon for this post. If he remembers where he saw it, I would like to get permission and give credit for it.

I didn't recognize the foreground person, but I knew what his first name must be. A bit of Googling revealed that his last name is Gaiman. Yeah, that guy. If it's not clear, the dude in back is this guy.

I've mentioned my interest in this subject before.

Ahem. I believe the correct phrasing is

I'm a bit behind on the paper, so when I recently mentioned Terence Stamp, I hadn't yet read about his recent project as the Voice of God.

The penitent man may kneel before God, but I pity da foo' that don't Kneel Before Zod! Now you can do both simultaneously for extra convenience.

Tuesday's Sally Forth (1/16/2007 - I can't find any way to link that is stable, but you could try here and choose the date) includes my favorite Crow of Triumph:

"Kneel Before Zod!"

It's nice to know it's gone mainstream. I normally consider Sally Forth to be just sufficiently amusing to not dislike, but I have to admit that the kids are inspiring me to more respect for Ted Forth.

[And just in case you don't recognize the reference, as the comic suggests, Zod has a weak handshake. I like him better either in a dress or as Darth Sidious' bitch.]

I am bad at Valentine's Day. Jenny always reminds me with plenty of time, but I end up dealing with everything at the last minute. I believe it was last year when I stopped by the flower shop for flowers and the drugstore for candy on my way home that night. The only thing that makes this feasible is that I get carnations, since Jen is allergic to roses (and many other flowers).

I looked into getting her the rings that she had specifically marked in a catalog and handed to me, but it turns out we don't know her ring size. We haven't had time to find out. So that's deferred. I went to the mall yesterday to look into some diamond stud earrings that she had hinted at (aka, bluntly told me "Buy these, fool!"), but they couldn't guarantee that the diamonds weren't mined by 4-year-olds slaving away for terrorists and drug kingpins, so that was out. (Jen's picky. It's part of the gift to fit into her parameters.)

So I was a bit at a loss for what to do. But I puzzled 'til my puzzler was sore and devised a Cunning Plan! Yesterday, I arranged with work to take today off. Then today, I went to the gym, and I went to a park...with all three kids. Jenny stayed home and slept until we returned at 1:30pm. Whereupon her awakening, I sent her to get the mail so she could get the flowers from the front stoop, since she'd slept through the delivery. (Good!) She's been totally wiped lately, so I realized the best possible thing I could get her was a nap with no one around.

Kneel before Zod, suckers! :-)
