As I sit here watching Dumb & Dumber, one of my absolute favorite movies ever, I realize two things are true. This cult classic is an oldie but goodie and so is Hugo. After nearly sixteen years together, this man is my cult classic. I provide his cult following and he is the classic example of a loving human being with a kind, beautiful heart. He is enjoying a new video game for a few minutes before we watch tonight’s new episode of Saturday Night Live (another one of my all-time loves).
I find it funny when people say they don’t enjoy SNL. Right now I happen to work with several people who claim the humor on the show doesn’t appeal to them, which I really can’t understand. When they say such riot-inciting nonsense, I find it difficult to believe they aren’t a little stupid because they just don’t understand the jokes, skit dialogue and overall concepts. Maybe that is just because I have grown up with the show, watching the early 90s seasons with my father. We basked in the glory of Chris Farley, Adam Sandler, Mike Myers, and Will Ferrell, as they all started their careers there. As the years went on, I watched the likes of Tina Fey and Kristen Wiig develop strong and hysterical female characters. Now, Hugo and I religiously watch every season, enjoying some more than others, but always appreciating the history and nostalgia associated with Lorne Michaels’ baby.
So tonight, I will enjoy a night of smiling and laughing, alongside my best friend. Can’t ask for a better Saturday night ♥
