Here's to the Losers

For those not recognizing Hallmark's Make All Single People Feel Like Crap Day:

Here's to those who love not too wisely, know not wisely, but too well
To the girl who sighs with envy when she hears that wedding bell
To the guy who'd throw a party if he knew someone to call
Here's to the losers, bless them all

Here's to those who drink their dinners when that lady doesn't show
To the girl who'll wait for kisses underneath that mistletoe
To the lonely summer lovers when the leaves begin to fall
Here's to the losers, a-bless them all

Hey, Tom, Dick and Harry, come in out of the rain
Those torches you carry must be drowned in champagne

Here's the last toast of the evening, here's to those who still believe
All the losers will be winners, all the givers shall receive
Here's to trouble-free tomorrows, may your sorrows all be small
Here's to the losers, bless them all

At least I have Jack Bauer to keep me company tonight. And a Big Salad.

24 had better be new. I hope they won't be airing a repeat because masses of people will be out for the evening.

Kristen said...

Come on Micah, what's better than 24 on V Day?

We've been watching 24 -- still on the first season DVD. I'm at about 10:30 am -- the mom and daughter just got the gun! I need to watch some more tonight. I'm addicted.

Micah said...

I know all about jonesin' for 24. I'd never seen the show before, but watched the first 4 episodes of this season - HOOKED. I borrowed the first two seasons from a friend of a friend and plowed through them in a week. After the bar, I'll be renting the third season.

If you haven't already, you'll grow to hate Kim. Everyone does.

Kristen said...

Just went home for lunch to watch half an episode.

I don't hate Kim yet. But Teri seems pretty annoying, although I can't figure out why.

Micah said...

Without giving anything away, Teri's plotline got kind of silly towards the end of the season.

Don't hate Kim yet? C'mon - give in to your hatred. Join the Dark Side. Seriously, once you realize that this character puts herself into one stupid situation after another, you'll think she's an idiot. Especially when you get to season two.

But Kim is so redeemingly cute!

spydrz said...

24 is far superior to any other show on at that time.

Micah said...

KPMD - Get the DVDs, take a couple of days off (your patients can fend for themselves), and become absorbed into the world of Jack Bauer.

Mindy...with kids? BWAH HA HA HA HA!

spydrz - A bold statement, but I'd say it shares that title with "Arrested Development" (followed closely by "Scrubs").

spydrz said...

A bold statement? Or the truth?

"You can't handle the truth!!"

Panthergirl said...

Micah....I'll be your token Liberal Valentine. ;)

And there's a reason I did a blog post about Supernanny... on what other show can you hear a 3 year old call her mother "Butt Pie"?

Micah said...

KPMD - That may not be a smart idea. You'll get hooked and want to start the next episode right after the last one finishes. You could bring your laptop into the OR, but you'll be so engrossed that you won't be paying attention to your appendectomy patient and BAM! he nows has breast implants.

panthergirl - Awwww, thanks. Doubt I'll ever check out this "Supernanny" show that everyone seems to be talking about. Reality TV ain't my bag, baby.

spydrz said...

KP--make sure all the plastic surgery patients look like Kim.

Micah said...

If she had her druthers, she'd make them all look like Kiefer.

Did I just write "druthers"? Jeez, I am getting old.

spydrz said...

Great day! You done wrote druthers.

Kate The Great said...

Love the poem. It exactly describes the way I feel: Fireworks in July, Thanksgiving football games, Mistletoe, The Ball dropping- I'll get to share all those things with someone... someday.

Micah said...

I can't take credit for it. It's an old Sinatra tune.

Kristen said...

As of last night I am officially a member of the Kim Anti-Fan Club.

I can't believe she got mad at Jack for trying to kill IckyMan who kidnapped her!

And Micah I'm with you: Arrested Development and 24 are definitely tied for best -- along with The Office.

Micah said...

Nice of you to join us. It's weird to have so much hatred for a character who is so physically attractive. I'm reminded of the Seinfeld episode where Jerry's brain plays chess with his penis.

I'm sure you saw Sunday's AD. Oh man, I lost it when Gob and Lindsay were each doing a chicken impersonation. And everything that comes out of Tobias's mouth is gold.

I checked out "The Office" from the library and didn't really care for it. But I'm going to give it another shot one day, since I only watched a couple of episodes. I wonder how the US version (w/ Steve Carrel) will turn out.

Kristen said...

I know -- I thought I'd never see Gob's chicken impersonation again! That show is the most consistently funny thing on TV. I think Martin Short can be annoying sometimes, but he was great in Sunday's episode.

I had to watch a few episodes of the Office to get into it.

Micah said...

Yeah, every episode is a winner. "Scrubs" is just as consistent, IMO. I love Martin Short, but didn't really find him all that funny on this week's AD. I don't know why.

Oh, someone on a message board that I frequent made animated GIFs of both the Gob/Lindsay chicken strut and Martin Short being thrown at Tobias. I'll e-mail them to you if you want. I swear I watched the former for about 5 minutes straight.
