Ohana

Rodger, sorry it's been awhile since I last wrote. Life has been busy, what with raising a baby and all. Actually a lot has happened since I last wrote. Your great grandpa, Roger Moe, passed away. My parents decided to sell their house (at this point, it still hasn't sold) and you, your mom, and I moved into our own apartment a couple miles away. I worked a second job for a couple weeks, then quit because I didn't have enough time or energy to spend with you and your mom. There was Thanksgiving, the end of the world that wasn't, Christmas, and the New Year. These are just the highlights.

So, Rodger. Back on track, at least for now.

Lilo and Stitch is one of my favorite movies. It's funny and cute, and the title characters are two of the most interesting and original characters I've come across in a Disney movie. They're kinda like Calvin and Hobbes, if Calvin were a girl and if Hobbes was just like Calvin, but an alien.

Steve Urkel: the best boyfriend ever?

Rodger, Family Matters turned out to be a really weird show. Firstly, the youngest Winslow daughter just sort of disappeared after a few seasons (Mr. Winslow, apparently, is not as dedicated a father as Liam Neeson). I don't know - maybe it's just me, but calling a show “Family Matters” and then having the family act as if their missing daughter never existed seems like a mixed message. (This is probably why I'm more of a Full House type of guy. That house was always full. Uncle Jesse even stayed there after getting married and having kids, making the house even fuller).

Bad Dudes, Ninjas, and the President of the United States of America


Rodger, are you a bad enough dude to rescue the president?


I wonder if the developers over at Data East thought this was our protocol for rescuing a kidnapped president. This plan is structurally sound, but I question how well those in charge carried it out. “Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the president?” Um, shouldn’t they be certain that they are before sending them out on the most important mission ever? We'd never send some random guy to run track at the Olympics and wait until warm ups to ask if he's a fast enough dude to qualify for the medal round. We find that out ahead of time. We have a protocol for that.
