Poop, Poop! Oh, poetry of motion! Ohh, the bliss! Ohhh... poop, poop!

They're still shooting the television show "Leverage" a few blocks from my office. How do I know? Because I almost ran over star Timothy Hutton this morning on my way to work as I turned a corner.

Hutton was drinking a coffee, riding a bike the wrong way on a one-way street. I didn't recognize him until I rolled down my window to "explain" to the yahoo I'd almost killed how the one-way streets work. When I realized who it was I just started laughing.

It's actually a stroke of luck for me. If I'd squished Hutton my wife would've made my life very painful. Very painful indeed.

I didn't know the Hypnotoad did a cameo in the film version of that book.

Normally, I'd be savoring a good drag on schadenfreude at your near-miss, but married dude solidarity trumps any temporary high.

Here in CVO we describe those sorts of bike riders as "salmon." They're swimming against the current, and their days are numbered.

Only dead fish go with the flow.

A little boy pooped in the pool yesterday. After he pooped, he told his mom "somebody" pooped in the pool. It had to be scooped out and the pool was closed for the rest of the day while it was cleaned and disinfected (by a groundskeeper in a white hazmat suit, no doubt)

He's going to grow up to be a Republican, I just know it.

Timothy Hutton is just "Ordinary People" like us.

I think you should have snuffed 'em. You would have made Fox News.

I like Ubermilf's story.... an Eco-Terrorist in the making... not a repub...a repub would say Obama did it.

That's great. One time I met the dad on Alf.

And one time I was working with some people who'd just finished filming Against the Ropes with Meg Ryan and she was aghast at the garbage in an empty lot in an impoverished neighborhood, declaring "Why is this so dirty! Even poor people have rakes!"

Randal-

It's hypnobama.

Lockwood-

I like that. Salmon is a perfect word to describe that.

Utah-

He didn't look very awake so he was sort of half dead.

Ubermilf--

Karl Speckler references are always the door to my heart. I think I love you.

HarryTruman-

Rimshot!

okjimm-

Yeah, I'm pretty much thinking I would be famous. Or infamous depending on what you think of the guy. One coworker told me better luck next time.

Ricky-

I could totally see Ryan doing that. She's not as innocent and cute as she pretends.

I can't remember, was Timothy Hutton the Falcon or the Snowman?
