Do you remember that guy who wrote and starred in the TV Show "Get A Life"? Also, the film "Cabin Boy." Chris Elliott is most probably a TV/film writer and so-called actor, but apparently he wrote a novel. And allegedly, I read it. It is reportedly called Shroud of the Thwacker. And vicious rumors have been spread about it making me laugh out loud (that's LOL, for the illiterate readers of my journal) nearly as much as when I read Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The plot is ostensibly a Caleb Carr style murder mystery in a grimy 19th century New York City setting filled with the most inexplicably bizarre tangents, metaphors, and situations I have supposedly read in a long time.

Wasn't there another recent tv show disturbingly like Get A Life? It was also on Fox and it was about some overgrown manchild who still lived with his parents in (where else?) Buffalo and started trying to date the girl of his dreams when she moved back home after her divorce?

I am so embarrassed to know this much.

Don't know about a recent show, but I sure did enjoy Get A Life. Sometimes I wonder if I should be embarrassed by that.
