Remember David Hyde Pierce of Frasier fame? Where is he? I miss him.
I think he's on Broadway doing something hilarious. Mr. Pierce is one of the best physical comedians I've ever seen. Right up there with Buster Keaton and Dick Van Dyke. But more agile. Up there with Jim Carrey. But less obvious. For me, he made Frasier. Rounded it out. Made it quirky. I watched for him.
Do you know who he reminds me of? Sheldon Cooper from Big Bang Theory. Except with emotions. Too many of them. THAT'S IT! Niles is Sheldon, except emotional and neurotic. Seriously. Check it out. This is one of the best little physical comedy sequences I've seen in a long time. It's quietly ridiculous and adorable:
Ah, so great. He is so believable, I think, because he believes it. 100%. We need him back on TV again, because I cannot afford to fly to New York every Friday night. Please, David Hyde! Come back!

Also, as soon as I wake up (because I'm still in bed) I'm going to post the BEST. CEREAL. RECIPE. EVER. Not kidding. It will change your life. Once I post it, the link will be here. And it's fabulous because you throw it into your crockpot the night before, and when you wake up, voilá! Wholesome grains, apples, craisins, pecans, cinnamon, brown sugar, and vanilla. Dang! I spoiled it and told you the ingredients. WEll, the recipe will be posted soon. Once my REM sleep changes from rapid-eye-movement to staring-straight-ahead-whilst-trying-to-talk-myself-into-getting-up sleep.
In the meantime, watch David Hyde Pierce again and eat a cracker. Dipped in greek honey vanilla yogurt. I'm serious. It's almost as good as crockpot grain cereal.
