    Jennie, teach your freshman seminar on The Big Lebowski. Seriously.

    Way out west there was this fella I wanna tell ya’ about. Goes by the name of Jeff Lebowski. At least that was the handle his loving parents gave him, but he never had much use for himself. See, this Lebowski, he called himself “The Dude”. Now, Dude, there’s a name no man would self-apply where I come from. But then there was a lot about the Dude that didn’t make a whole lot of sense. And a lot about where he lived, like-wise. But then again, maybe that’s why I found the place so darned’ interestin’. See, they call Los Angeles the “City Of Angels”, but I didn’t find it to be that, exactly. But I’ll allow it as there are some nice folks there. ‘Course I aint never been to London, and I aint never seen France. And I aint never seen no queen in her damned undies, so the fella says. But I’ll tell you what, after seeing Los Angeles, and this here story I’m about to unfold, well, I guess I seen somethin’ every bit as stupefyin’ as you’d seen in any of them other places. And in English, too. So I can with a smile on my face. Without feelin’ like the good lord gipped me. Now this here story I’m about to unfold took place in the early nineties – just about the time of our conflict with Sad’m and the Eye-rackies. I only mention it because sometimes there’s a man, I wont say a hero, cause, what’s a hero? Sometimes, there’s a man. And I’m talkin’ about the Dude here – The dude from Los Angeles. Sometimes, there’s a man, well, he’s the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that’s the Dude. The Dude, from Los Angeles. And even if he’s a lazy man, and the Dude was most certainly that. Quite possibly the laziest in all of Los Angeles County. Which would place him high in the runnin’ for laziest worldwide. Sometimes there’s a man, sometimes, there’s a man. Well, I lost my train of thought here. But… aw, hell. I’ve done introduced it enough.

    I can’t believe I slept through last week’s Lebowski party.
