Lethargy is Eating My Vacation

I've come to the following conclusion after watching way too many episodes in an NCIS marathon.

Is it just me, or is Tony DiNozzo like a much suaver version of Guy Gardner?

Some men have to TRY to be that obnoxious, other men raise it to an artform. :-)

(I didn't like the character right away, but there's something about an incredibly irritating man who beats someone up while having been tied to a chair that turns my crank. Heh.)

I just wish USA would stop playing that Monk commercial with the Magnum PI themesong*. It's echoing through my head like nothing else.

On the plus side, I got my Christmas presents wrapped (my family is Catholic, of varying levels of actual devoutness going from me, who is lapsed enough to be all but agnostic, to my mother, who actually taught Sunday School... I love my mother, but that development STILL boggles my mind) and have otherwise done little of consequence.

I love vacation. I will have no brain cells left for law school. Godwilling.

    I guess I'll have to start watching NCIS. Your comments intrigue me.

    But faux 70's music for the Monk commercial? That's the theme song to Magnum P.I.! Granted, you were probably an infant at the time, but it was Tom Selleck for God's Sake!

    Oh, and Merry Christmas.

    :-) I was born in 1983 actually.

    I thought it sounded vaguely familiar though, glad to hear it wasn't "faux." Maybe if I rent the show it'll get out of my head.

    Merry Christmas!

    I was born in 1982. And the Magnum P. I. theme song is my cell phone ring tone. So there. :-P

    Hee, you can add that to the list of things you know that I don't.


    Except I know it now. So pfft. :-P

    You know, there's something very addictive about NCIS. I mean, sure, I'm in love with Ziva (I have a weakness for badass women), but there's really no logical reason for me to catch the program every week.
    Weird.

    I hadn't thought about the DiNozzo/Guy similarity until you mentioned it...but it's quite an apt comparison!

    I suppose that would make Gibbs Batman, and his head-smacks to DiNozzo are the "one punch" equivalent...

    When I think of Tony, I don't normally think "suave" (though perhaps that's just a measure of Guy); wishes he were/thinks he is, perhaps.

    Yeah, but he actually gets positive results with it. :-P

    Though maybe that comes of looking like what's-his-name that plays him. :-)
