All I Need to Know About Life I Learned From Watching TV All Day

Today I learned some very important lessons. I was home in bed all day thanks to some virus that has left my nose a little stuffed, my entire body achy, and a mild fever washing over me. While I could have chosen to be super cranky about all of this I chose to use it as an excuse to watch TV and stay in bed on my day off. I will now share with you the very important lessons I learned.

People’s Court is still one of the best shows ever. I remember watching this show when I was home sick as a kid. Today I was reminded of its sheer brilliance in displaying human stupidity tactfully and humorously. Be nice. Don’t borrow or lend money without putting something in writing.

The Chew is an awesome show. I know, you are all asking, what is The Chew? It’s on at 1:00PM so no one can watch it regularly, ridiculous I tell you. Mario Batali, Michael Symon, and Carla Hall all share great recipes and are kooky in their own ways. I don’t really get why Clinton Kelly, a guy known for fashion is on the show, but he’s funny so it’s forgivable. Daphne Oz, I get they needed a pretty blonde and her father, Dr. Oz, probably paid someone to give his daughter a job, but I could really do without her on the show. Make great food often and laugh with those you love daily.

Dr. Phil is way too scripted. I seriously doubt that man could say half of what comes out of his mouth without serious coaching. (Please don’t judge me for watching Dr. Phil.) We are all fucked up and should be in therapy, end of story.

Paula Deen rocks. I don’t care of she has diabetes. Did any of us really think she could eat the stuff she makes on her show and not have health problems? Two sticks of butter in one dish, enough said. Eat dessert first, worry about health later.

Fraiser reruns made my afternoon. That show was hysterical, the early seasons at least. Speak your mind, if you don’t it will get you in trouble and make people mad, if you do it will make people mad, but at least you’ll get it over with quickly.

I teach yoga, write, and edit. I live in a Brooklyn neighborhood that is changing faster than I can, or care to, keep up with. Manhattan still beckons me to her island a few subways stops away, reminding me of when I lived amongst her daily hustle and bustle.
