EVERYTHING THEY SAY ABOUT L.A. IS TRUE
Natalie and I just watched 45 minutes of Showtime's new show The L Word. It was, without a doubt, one of the worst shows I've seen in years. Lots of surface heat and absolutely no substance (not to mention no plot and no characters). It was like somebody wrote a script and a re-write committee then sat around and inserted something scandalous in every scene - a blowjob here, a lesbian seduction there, throwaway lines about swallowing semen. Painful stuff.

It makes one appreciate Sex In The City, which looks like a a reality show in comparison.

XMAS PRESENTS
On Christmas Eve, my Father got a call from his radiologist. After enduring 44 radiation treatments, six weeks of chemo and surgery to remove a tumor and one kidney, Dad has been pronounced clear of cancer. Yes, the X-rays say he's okay for the moment.

Christmas was pretty good this year.
