Red Hot on NCIS

Annie WerschingIt’s sad to realize that when January rolls around this year I won’t be getting together with Jack, Chloe, the CTU, and, of course, the gang from Blogs.4Bauer.com. Those of you who never visited the site have no idea of how much fun the writers and (we hope) our readers had. We were all big fans, but the most irreverent group of fans you’ve ever seen. We loved the show, embraced the characters, and poked fun at every turn.

And we appreciated the women. OK, that’s not quite true. We drooled over the women like college freshman at their first strip club. But in a good way.

One of our favorites, Agent Red Hot (Annie Wersching), made an appearance on tonight’s episode of NCIS. Her cameo won’t make missing a new season of 24 go away, but it may have made the pain just a little less.

Lunchtime List & Lass – 12

We are coming to the end of 24: Season 8, which means we are coming near the end of the series. You can join the crew at Blogs.4Bauer.com for tonight’s liveblog, but while you wait here are 10 of my favorite Jack Bauer Truths.

  • Killing Jack Bauer doesn’t make him dead. It just makes him angry.
  • If everyone listened to Jack Bauer, the show would be called 12.
  • Superman wears Jack Bauer pajamas.
  • Jack Bauer is what Willis was talking about.
  • When life gave Jack Bauer lemons, he used them to kill terrorists. Jack Bauer hates lemonade.
  • When Jack Bauer pissses into the wind, the wind changes direction.
  • Sun Tzu once wrote, “If your enemy is weaker, conquer him. If he is stronger, join him. If he is Jack Bauer, you’re f***ing dead.”
  • If Jack Bauer was gay, his name would be Chuck Norris.
  • Let’s get one thing straight: the only reason you are conscious right now is because Jack Bauer does not feel like carrying you.
  • If Jack Bauer was in a room with Hitler, Stalin, and Nina Meyers, and he had a gun with 2 bullets, he’d shoot Nina twice.

And what’s a Jack Bauer post without a little Kim Bauer.

Lunchtime List & Lass – 7

We come to the end of 100 Things Your Kids May Never Know About on List & Lass. Today we look at Everything Else.

70. Taking turns picking a radio station, or selecting a tape, for everyone to listen to during a long drive.
71. Remembering someone’s phone number. I don’t even remember my own.
72. Not knowing who was calling you on the phone.
73. Actually going down to a Blockbuster store to rent a movie.
74. Toys actually being suitable for the under-3s.
75. LEGO just being square blocks of various sizes, with the odd wheel, window or door. ???
76. Waiting for the television-network premiere to watch a movie after its run at the theater.
77. Relying on the 5-minute sport segment on the nightly news for baseball highlights.
78. Neat handwriting. Never had it, never will.
79. The days before the nanny state. Can we get those days back?
80. Starbuck being a man.
81. Han shoots first.
82. “Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your father.” But they’ve already seen episode III, so it’s no big surprise.
83. Kentucky Fried Chicken, as opposed to KFC.
84. Trig tables and log tables.
85. “Don’t know what a slide rule is for …”
86. Finding books in a card catalog at the library.
87. Swimming pools with diving boards.
88. Hershey bars in silver wrappers.
89. Sliding the paper outer wrapper off a Kit-Kat, placing it on the palm of your hand and clapping to make it bang loudly. Then sliding your finger down the silver foil of break off the first finger
90. A Marathon bar (what a Snickers used to be called in Britain).
91. Having to manually unlock a car door.
92. Writing a check.
93. Looking out the window during a long drive.
94. Roller skates, as opposed to blades.
95. Cash.
96. Libraries as a place to get books rather than a place to use the internet.
97. Spending your entire allowance at the arcade in the mall. Pac Man and Asteroids!

99. A physical dictionary — either for spelling or definitions.
100. When a ‘geek’ and a ‘nerd’ were one and the same.

In honor of number 80, today’s lass is the female Starbuck and iritating, but good looking, Dana Walsh of 24, Katee Sackhoff.

Jack Bauer – AR

RIP Red Hot -  Annie WerschingTonight begins the Jack Bauer AR (After Red Hot) era. The gang at Blogs4Bauer will be liveblogging, of course.

The big question is, does Jack dissolve into a quivering end-of-Extreme-Home-Makeover blob, or does he reach deep down and find his inner Jack? I hope for the later, but fear for the former. That’s why my guess on the Jack Bauer Kill Counter is a measly 1. I figure that any kills are going to be offset by crying and apologizing. Get your guess in before the festivities begin at around 8:45 eastern.

It’s Not Over Yet

I’m not talking about the health takeover debate, although that discussion needs to go on. I’m talking about 24. And all though it is coming to an end, it’s not over yet. That means you can still join in the liveblogging fun at Blogs.4Bauer.com and while you’re waiting be sure to post your guess on the JBKC post.

If that’s not enough to hold you over, how about some agent Red Hot.

Playing Catch Up

After my out of touch week, I am about through playing catch up. I’ve waded through pages of email, spam, and a very full feed reader, performed maintenance on my various blogs (including all the spam registrations at The Regiment), watched some football, hockey, and three out of the first four hours of 24.

I have to watch the fourth hour before hour five tonight. And speaking of hour five, be sure that you join the crew at the best 24 site anywhere — Blogs.4Bauer.com. Make sure that you remember to join us for the Season 8: 8 pm to 9 pm liveblogging event.

One of the other things I missed were two episodes of bRight@Night. I’ll take care of that immediately following Jack. More on that later.

Now, on with the show.

I’m Back

I know, most of you probably didn’t realize I wasn’t around. After all, when you’re just looking for pictures of Cote de Pablo, Liv Tyler, and Gabriel Anwar you may just miss the fact that I haven’t posted anything in a week. Well to keep you folks happy:

For the rest of you, a brief explanation. I will freely admit that it started with a mistake on my part. A mix-up with due dates and payments made and I didn’t pay Brighthouse on time. I really didn’t realize we were behind. Beyond that, we missed, or didn’t get, any notice that the bill was due. That’s where I stop taking the blame.

I was given the impression that I needed to go into their office. The problem was I was at work on Friday and couldn’t get off in time to get in there before they closed, besides which they decided to shut everything off mid morning. No Phone, no television, no internet. Still thinking, erroneously it turns out, that I needed to go into the office I went the weekend without being able to get online, missing my bRight@Night show, and missing the weekends playoff games. The cruelest cut was not seeing the premier of 24 season 8.

Of course it doesn’t end there. Monday was Martin Luther King day — another day for their office to be closed. And another two hours missed of the latest Jack. As you can imagine I was there first thing Tuesday morning. That’s where it get really good.

I was told two things that really got my blood pressure elevated. One, I never needed to go into the office (despite what we were first told). I could have taken care of things online or over the phone. Of course the facts that I couldn’t get online or use the home phone were just cruel irony. The second thing I learned was that the earliest they could get out to cut the service back on was Wednesday. Now understand that cutting service back on involved the complicated process of opening a box on the side of the house and reattaching a coaxial cable. When they finally did that (the good part is coming next) the procedure took a hot minute. So now you can add to the list of things missed the Massachusettes Massachusetts election returns. I didn’t find out about Brown’s great win until Wednesday morning when I got to work.

I was told that they were going to make sure that someone would hook things back up by 8pm. Around seven, with nothing going yet, I got on my cell and gave them a call. After listening to the same 60 bars of hold music over and over I was told that the note to come out on Wednesday never made it to dispatch and that there was no way anyone would be out that night.

I made it very clear that that was unacceptable. They made it very clear that there was nothing I could do about it. Turns out they were right.

Well, yesterday morning before noon they fixed things. In less than 60 seconds.

So, I’m back. I spend last night catching up on, well, everything. I watched the first three out of four episodes of 24 (I still have to catch up with the Blogs4Bauer liveblogging), read (and deleted) a ton of email, and tried to catch up on the items in my feed reader.

Thanks for listening to my rant. And for the Rule 5 rest of you:

Like I need another reason to watch

Season 8 of 24 starts in just a bit over a month. That means the deranged crew at Blogs.4Bauer.com is gearing up to bring you the best coverage of all things Bauer once again.

Of course we all know that means 24 hotties as well. Wyatt has found the show has hired a contractor.

This Contractor:

Nazneen Contractor

Read the post at B4B to see what Nanzeen Contractor will be doing.

Personally, I’m looking for some more agent Red Hot.

Annie Wersching Agent Renee Red Hot Walker

Sure looks like a good season to me.
