I know I’ve said it before, but I truly don’t think I could have two dogs with more opposite personalities. I took them over to my friends’ house, friends who have a four-year-old Golden Retriever and Rudi’s sister. Rudi and her sister don’t look much alike — Rudi is tall, skinny, and has short black fur with a little white on the chest. Her sis, Ariyah, is tall, has long black, brown, gray, and white fur, and … is decidedly not skinny. However, their mannerisms are almost identical

The two sisters and Blue, the Golden, love nothing more than playing nonstop. Yuki, on the other hand, would far prefer the other dogs be locked outside so she can have all the people to herself.

Oh, and also? While Yuki spends a good bit of her time hiding her butt so Blue can’t hump her, Rudi, my sweet little baby girl, spends a good bit of her time doing the humping. Awesome.

I’ve been a casual Monty Python fan for just about as long as I can remember. I can quote a few lines here and there, but I don’t know every skit or anything. Monty Python and the Holy Grail is one of the funniest movies ever, and I laughed until things hurt at Spamalot.

But, according to something I read at Cele|bitchy, Monty Python is a rip off.

Okay, not exactly a rip off, but not entirely original. You know the dead parrot sketch? A 1600-year-old Greek joke book does the same bit, although, you know, with slaves. Does that make it less funny? Maybe now, but at the time, I bet it brought down the house.

This is making me wonder one thing, though — exactly how old is John Cleese?

I might make some enemies here, but the truth is that I don’t think The Office is all that funny. Honestly, it makes me squirm. It’s not that it’s hitting so close to home, or that I have a problem with Steve Carrell (loved him in Little Miss Sunshine) — it just generally doesn’t make me laugh. Smirk a little, maybe, but definitely not laugh.

Jared and I have run into this with movies, too. We turned off You, Me, and Dupree about 30 minutes in, and there have been a number of others that we’ve either turned off early or just not bothered with because we knew it was that “uncomfortable humor.”

I like to think I have a pretty good sense of humor. I’m okay with gross fart jokes, and I also enjoy intelligent, topical humor, but this new form of comedy is really leaving me cold. Thoughts?
