Recently me and my fiance found a small house in our house-hunt that we really, really liked. It was smallish, but all other details about it were perfectly suited to our needs and sensibilities. The home was sparsely decorated with a few key items that struck us both personally; a Curious George doll on the bed, a Batman coffee mug. And being a 26 year old dork, my eye naturally wandered to the little media collection near the television. There were very few DVDs. A single season of The Office US, the entire BBC Office, Hot Fuzz 3-Disc... okay great, a typical college guy pretty much. Oh, and a Windows Vista package. And Rat Race.
Now, people have warned us to not fall in love with this property because it's so tiny, but, Rat Race. Why the F was that there?? In high school I worked at a video store and blindly bought Rat Race because I could and because my father loves A Mad Mad Mad Mad World, and I guess I wanted to connect in some way. And eventually I sold it to a pawn shop for $4. But here it is again now in this, this saddest of all DVD collections, smack-dab in the living room of the house I want to purchase, and insensibly so. I blame it on Andy. Maybe I just want to connect in some small way?
You heard it here first! Can you relate? Do you have your own stories of Andy Breckman related omens in your life? E-mail me and I'll post them to the blog.
