It’s Easter Sunday, 2:45 a.m., Sam is asleep and I’m enjoying Hormel Compleats meatloaf and mashed potatoes with tasty brown gravy because my stomach was really empty and Hormel’s little airplane-sized meals are just enough to fill me up in the middle of the night. Personally, I think this is the best variety Hormel makes ... not counting their chili with beans.
I thought I should take a moment right now to recommend some great TV. For instance ... another awe-inspiring season of “DEADLIEST CATCH” is kicking up again on Discovery every Tuesday night. This series is one of the best reasons to own a high-definition TV because the photography is breathtaking. Also it’s an excellent opportunity to find out what’s new with your favorite dysfunctional crab boat captains. (These guys are INSANE.) And “VEEP” is back on Sunday nights on HBO starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus. The new season starts tonight, so grab your remote and program your DVR.
“THE WIZARD OF LIES” that premiers on May 20 starring Robert DeNiro and Michelle Pfeiffer as Bernie and Ruth Madoff. I, for one, can’t wait to relive this embarrassing shit all over again. Bernie Madoff was a nice little Jewish man — the chairman of NASDAQ! — who bankrupted his friends, his relatives, prominent Jewish charities and thousands of investors. In 2009 Madoff was sentenced to 150 years in prison and $170 billion restitution. What an evil jerk. I hope his teeth fall out the day before Thanksgiving!
Now it’s time for Chinese food and a movie! I just ordered some goodies from King China in Garland ... Hot & Sour Soup, Szechwan Shrimp with String Beans (extra spicy) and Vegetable Egg Foo Yung. I’m so excited my head might explode.
Thank you for reading this!
