This morning I was watching Inside the Actors Studio. Dave Chappell was guest hosting interviewing ... James Lipton. I don't know why I don't watch ITAS more often - I really enjoy the show whenever I watch it. Interesting facts I learned include: Lipton was a 'manager' for a prostitute during his time in Paris as a youth; he was reading at age one and a half; his dad was a hippy; he wanted to be a lawyer and got into acting to pay the bills; he is an atheist.
Oh, and his favorite curse word is: "jesus christ!"
I thought that last bit was especially interesting because my favorite curse is "goddamnit!" - a curse that is as powerful as it is blasphemous. Goddamnit is a word that conveys ultimate disapproval and the worst that could possibly happen. Despite that it doesn't really mean anything.
I guess the seeds of my affinity for blasphemy are rooted in the Good News Bible study I attended as a youngster. The youthgroup leader heard me say, "darn it!" one day and told me not to curse. He said it was the same as saying, "damn."
Funny thing, life. It'll be 4/20 and for once I have weed. It bothers me that 4/20 is Hitler's birthday though. I don't celebrate on this date because of Hitler; I celebrate because of the numbers in the date. I'll be chiefing tomorrow at 4:20pm fo' sho'.
I have major homework to do. Enough dicking around, I've got to go back to work.
