GK: After this message from the Evelyn Lundberg Counseling Agency. The ELCA.

SS (EVELYN): Now listen. Okay, we had a big week this week and we put in this new guy and he's skinny and smart and his wife is terrific and his kids are unbearably cute and there was a lot of crying and cheering and people walking around in a dreamscape but it's over now. It's over. Time for him to put on his waders and muck out the cesspool and it ain't gonna be pretty. So stop swooning. Stop updating your Facebook. Turn off CNN. Go do something productive. Do your taxes or something. Get a haircut. Take your clothes off and stand in front of the mirror with all the lights on and see if maybe you ought to start exercising a little.

You don't have to sit and read the NY Times for two hours every day. The president's gonna be there for awhile and as soon as he does something we're all gonna hear about it anyway. In other words people, get a life. It's January, now's the time to start over. Stop fawning and talking about how you just can't believe it. It happened. Okay. Get busy. Don't make me tell you again.

GK: A message from the Evelyn Lundberg Counseling Agency.
