Just saw that Larry Gelbart has passed away. An incredibly talented writer, my very favorite of all his work made me a dyed-in-the-wool M*A*S*H-ophile, and this is devastating news.
Yes, I was and am a huge fan. My ex was still a military recruiter when the last M*A*S*H aired. We threw a party where we decked out our friends in his olive drabs and I served bone dry martinis and spam hors d'oevres.
Yes, I was that big of a geek. So shoot me.
Mr. Gelbart, God speed to a really good place in heaven. And thanks for the lovely memories of Hawkeye, Trapper, B.J. Hunicutt, Col. Potter, Col. Blake, Hot Lips Hoolihan, Frank Burns, Radar O'Reilly, Father Mulcahy, Charles Emerson Winchester III and the rest of the regulars.
Jeeze. I'll have to buy Spam this weekend, a bottle of cocktail olives and a bottle of gin. It's only fitting. Now if only I could locate Mr. Kwok to make me a veritable dustbowl of a martini...
If The Awesomer is a site for guys, how come I love it so much??? I call bullshit. It's a site for geeks, goobers, gamers and grrls with good taste (lust, need, want!!!)!
God bless Bonnie Hunt. It's good to know that there's at least one celebrity out there that doesn't think Blago's cute... or funny... or unaccountable for his sins against this state.
