a clue, a clue, a clue. gseundheit!
i know you probably tuned in today hoping to find yet another long-winded-big-ass story about one of my random exploits. but, come on...wasn't yesterday's random exploit long-winded and big-ass enough to hold you for a while?

[murmurs of assent ripple through the crowd]

right.

so, today i have to spend all of my energy on winning a million dollars. last night abc aired the last episode of push, nevada and crammed all the remaining clues into the last 20 seconds of the show. abc sucks. not that you need me to tell you that.
according to jim. MDs. do i really need to keep going?

i mean, push didn't have its sea legs yet, but it had potential. and, it required its audience to pay attention and to [gasp!] think a bit. i can just hear the abc braintrust now: "god forbid we require them to think -- we must cancel this right away! we will have no thinking! let's replace it with even more episodes of dinotopia!!"

anyway, last night's episode contained an obvious shout-out to me: the word "usurped" appeared not once, but twice during the show. twice, people. i mean, it's obvious that ben affleck wants me to have this money. okay, sure, it would have been more obvious if they had said "upsurped," but, you know, potato, potahto. whatever. so, in light of the shout-out, let me just say this:

to: ben affleck
from: me
re: that money you obviously want me to have
dude, i need more clues. seriously. i definitely appreciate the shout-out, but, come on...underwear?? i. am. clue. less.


so, here are the clues. if you have any ideas, feel free to comment. if you're right, and i get the cash, i'll slip you a twenty.

1. $1,045,000
2. television
3. orange
4. peter pan
5. g
6. morse code
7. five
8. longitude
9. underwear
10. southeast
11. bodnick
12. eliot

so, get out your green lantern decoder rings and go to it, kids.
