Just Another Maineiac Monday

Lately, I've had zero time to blog. So I thought I'd quickly throw up a mishmash of the super important stuff that's currently taking up all of my precious time. Let's start with Gordon Ramsay. My 10-year-old daughter is obsessed with him. She watches all 179 of his current TV shows. Here's just a sampling: …

Lost Seinfeld Episode: The Soap Suc (Part 2)

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. ELAINE (pushes Kramer's hand away, looks down at her watch): Oh, would you look at the time? I gotta go. I'm late …

Lost Seinfeld Episode: The Soap Suc (Part 1)

Jerry's alone in his apartment. He's watching television and eating cereal. JERRY (giggling): Man, I love The Three Stooges. The door buzzer sounds. Jerry walks over and presses the intercom button. JERRY: Yeah? ELAINE (breathing heavily): Jerry! Jerry! It's an emergency! Let me in quick! I need help! JERRY: Who is this? ELAINE: Jerry! JERRY: …

My Secret TV Star Life

You may remember the post My Secret Movie Star Life when I revealed I used to be almost famous as a stand-in for bratty actors on bathroom breaks*. But like most real movie stars, my high-flying prolific career started to fizzle and plummet faster than Jenny McCarthy's breasts in 30 years. Hey, this gorgeous frying pan I have …

Firsts and Lasts with Angie from Childhood Relived

One fine day a couple years ago, I stumbled upon a humor blog that was hipper than Mrs. Brady's polyester pant suit, cooler than Shrinky Dinks, and funnier than the fact there was a character on the sitcom Growing Pains named Boner. Angie, the self-described 'bratass' from the blog, Childhood Relived, put a humorous spin on 1970s and '80s pop culture using her …

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) …

Reality Overload

When I think of summer, I think of lazy days spent by the pool or picnics on the grass. But how does my husband spend his summer days? Catching up on reality shows. Not Jersey Shore or Desperate Housewives of DC, but other gems like Parking Wars, Operation Repo or Ice Road Truckers. I know, I'm just …
