I’ll Take Insanely Good Jeopardy Players for $1000, Alex.

It was 1984 when my obsession with Jeopardy was born. I was a spacey 14-year-old girl who wore high-wasted polyester pants and thought Almonzo on Little House was "dreamy". One evening I noticed my father and older brother yelling random things at the TV. "Who is Mark David Chapman?" "What is the Slinky?" "What is …

Bigly News!

I've been coughing up posts for this blog for almost seven years now -- for free and with absolutely zero chance of ever gaining any real success or exposure beyond the 200 pathetic cats that read my drivel. Well, that's about to change. I've just received news through my agent that Melissa McCarthy has signed …

Last time on Seinfeld, The Soap Suc Part 1: George is moaning about his injured foot, Jerry's pouring himself another bowl of cereal, and Kramer is about to determine whether Elaine's breasts are lopsided.

Everyone has their secret celeb crushes. On my short list -- Sting, Jon Stewart, Hugh Laurie, Robert Downey Jr., Conan O'Brien, Ryan "Hey Girl" Gosling -- to name just a few. (It's really not a short list at all, actually.) But no one compares to my undying devotion to Jason Bateman. Ah, yes. Jason and I go waaay back. ----The following …

Reasons Why I’d Never Survive Survivor

I just finished watching my favorite TV reality show, Survivor. I've seen all 3,000 seasons. After we watched last week's thrilling finale, my six year old daughter turned to me and said, "Hey, Mom! I know what you can do for a job! Go on Survivor!" Oh, silly girl. Mommy wouldn't last ten minutes. Why? …

Why I Almost Hated Friends

Friends was one of my all-time favorite shows. I loved it so much, it's now my main go-to show I'll watch in reruns-- I've seen every episode countless times. But there was a time I hated it. Yep, I was one of the few people who just didn't see the glittering gem hiding in the …

Mad Men Lite

One of my guilty pleasures is watching the AMC hit show Mad Men.  I love the sets/costumes, the actors, and the writing. I watched the first four seasons in a span of a month. I didn't think I'd like it, but I was hooked. Some of you may not have seen it yet (or might not care to) …
