hahahahaha! I was just thinking about Lumbergh this morning. I saw a guy this morning who looked so much like him I did a double take!

p.s. smarmy is one of my favorite words. when you press you press your lips together you sure can drag it out...

I think everyone has a Lumbergh in their life, it is just sometimes really hard to see the humor in your interactions with them. So, now I can just go to my blog and watch this clip and it makes me feel at least a little better.
