On Monday Megs and I went down to Hollywood to go see a taping of Last Comic Standing. Weird thing is the NBC show was taped at CBS Television Studios. I also thought the show was taped at a real theater, but actually it’s just a big studio set made to look like a theater. Anyways, the Director said the episode is suppose to air tonight at 8 p.m. on NBC, so check it out. If they bring out Louie Anderson and Carrot Top, that’s the one we were at. I don’t think Megs nor I ended up on camera, but we’d be off to the right from the audience’s point of view.

In other news I feel that I can declare a victory against the ants in the apartment. I tried the little traps, I tried cinnamon, I kept things remarkably clean and as dry as I could, but at most the cinnamon just redirected the ants, and I think they know better about the silly traps. What finally worked was so simple I don’t know why I didn’t think of it before: a big can of RAID. That stuff’s awesome! It does just what it says, which is to kill ants on contact (after a few seconds of thrashing/twitching–I liked that part), and to keep them from coming back. I went all of yesterday without seeing a single ant! My life is happiness.

Dad’s down in So Cal on business so he’s dropping by this evening to say hi. He also said he might bring his folks, so I’m looking forward to seeing everyone and showing off the completed apartment. Last time dad saw the place the floor was almost literally COVERED in boxes and furniture. It’s much better now.

And finally, a big shout-out across the pond to mom, Kim, and Kelly over in the Czech Republic! Hope you’re all staying warm and wary of surly Russians. See Sam and Gus web for more details on that adventure. Everyone, please send them your thoughts, your comments, and your extra vowels, and maybe they’ll export us some surplus consonants. Gotta love Eastern Europe!
