      Because we all need a laugh, and I want to broaden my horizons, what are some of your favorite comedians? The kind that you can watch over and over and still be give you a chuckle.

      Mine? Robin Williams, Bill Engvall, Richard Pryor, Steve Martin, Damon Wayans, and Billy Crystal

    • Frustrating Day - Until...

      9 years ago

      drpetrelli

      Usual day of treating patients and getting the shaft by their insurance company. The patient interaction is great, seeing people improve, get back to things they weren't able to do because of whatever pain they had, etc.

      Then the insurance sends letters instead of checks, "waiting for additional information", or "this claim was processed in error" or my personal favorite "we are not responsible for this claim, please resend this claim to the capitated payor".

      ARRRRRGGGGHHHH!

      Then, I get a message from a family member that puts everything in perspective. Thank you Monty Python:

    • Flyerin' Tex

      Okay, it's a stretch, but I am still in shock from last night's Flyers loss to the Blackhawks. I know, I know the Flyers were a 7 seed, got into the playoffs by the skin of their teeth, etc. Yeah, it still hurts though, being on the precipice, yet still wthin arm's reach of Lord Stanley's Cup.

      Anyway, I am confident they will be back in the playoffs and will go deep next season, and they, like TEX, will be back in black.

      Kick'it, Angus

    • Dinner and a Movie

      9 years ago

      drpetrelli

      My wife has finally converted! In a surprise move, she asked if I wanted to see Iron Man 2 this weekend. I have to supply dinner (no big deal) but my jaw dropped when she asked me. Usually when we would see a movie in years past it would be a comedy or a some drama type, so I wouldn't bother asking her to see an action movie. But lately, she pushed me to see Avatar, now Iron Man 2. So as a little warm-up, we are watching the first Iron Man tonight to get ready for tomorrow.

      Or she could be setting me up to ask for something big (diamond earrings most likely)

      But hey, AC/DC is on the soundtrack so I'll enjoy it any which way. Here's a fave of mine that did not make it to the soundtrack, but still a helluva tune:

    • A-Team: Crossing Fingers

      I am hoping, HOPING that this movie will not go the way of the Dukes of Hazzard remake as a disgrace to the original. It is one of the shows I grew up with watching it with my dad, and the movie trailer looks halfway decent. Just give me a decent plausible story line (people will get shot this time, right?) without too much cheese. I think they cast the characters right, although I think Liam Neeson is a stretch as Hannibal. It comes out June 11, if it doesn't tank, I'm taking my dad to go see it.

      I finally broke down and joined FB a few months ago and have gotten in contact with friends from grade school, high school, college, and chiropractic school. Amazing how some friends have changed so much and others look almost the same after 20+ years.

      The side effect to joining FB is that there are a million "remember when's". Songs from the 80s are tossed back and forth (don't shudder, you want bad music? listen to the crap being shelled out today) , getting stuck in my head like this one:

      www.youtube.com/watch?v=AjPau5QYtYs

      yeah, you all enjoy it, y'know you do deep down inside. We've all got the inner 80s kid in there with the trapper keeper, the parachute pants, the Don Johnson jacket, the one screaming "I WANT MY MTV!!" (The one with the VIDEOS, novel frakkin' idea, huh?)

      Stay safe this weekend everybody, drive safe, drink safe, and dance a little will ya?

    • Time to get FLYERED UP!

      9 years ago

      drpetrelli

      I am sure most of my Philadelphia comrades are feeling bittersweet this week as the Flyers get ready to take on the Chicaaaaaago Blackhawks for Lord Stanley's cup.

      On the flipside to baseball, our Phils got shut out for THREE straight games against the Mets. Are you frakkin' kidding me? (yeah I watched BSG this weekend) This kind of s$%! should NOT be happening. We got to see them bounce back soon.

      So going into the holiday weekend we have no plans (Thank God) so no holiday traveling and getting stuck in traffic by the Jersey Shore. I have a honey-to-do-list, but if that keeps me home and out of trouble for a few days, I am GTG.

      Instead I will live vicariously through my RT and especially through my HMC brethren. Let me hear from ya, whaddya doin for the holiday weekend?

      Thanks, I appreciate that. I really tried to watch a few games, but it has been unbearable. I've had to watch the matches muted. I have to say that I was not a soccer fan until my kids started playing, then I got a deeper appreciation for the game and the fans.

      I hope they do something about the vuvelezeas (?) whatever they are called, it's ruining the atmosphere of the Cup

      I read your comment on today's PSA, and I must say it was just as funny as what I was watching. I felt it deserved more of a compliment than a simple "+1 Funny."

      (It's also nice to see a fellow soccer fan, especially from the States)

      Shoot me a solo pic of yourself, or let me know which one to take from your page. Pick one that makes you look "Rico Suave-ish". I'll submit it to the Admin of the group, then the members vote.

      ZetaZasco started the group and contacted me a while back. We are having a little fun with it, so far everyone has been voted in. It's a devotion to all things handsome, even if it is over the top.
