First, the text size kept defaulting back to the smallest font!Â Gave it a pep talk, and it decided to behave.Â I can actually have the keyboard on my lap on the couch and see myÂ monitorÂ Love it, Love it, Love it.
Â My favorite breakfast is sushi.Â Used to be pasta but I have evolved.Â Though pasta with a really good light marinara sauce and much reggio parmigiana is still my favorite food.Â Then comes stone crabs with mustard sauce and creamed spinach.Â Love dark chocoalte and ginger, and almost all vegtables and salad ingredients but beets which I detest with a vengance.
I was very hungry when I wrote that as I have had a total of seven hours sleep in the past two nights, and just wasn’t hungry.Â
The simplicity and advanced status of my new desktop makes me feel a bit as if I owned a Mac.Â Okay now for the good stuff.
I picked my grad school for its alt rock radio station; its top ranked but so are others.
So I’m not as deep as people think.Â Read TV Guide from cover to cover.Â Loved the original 8 by 11 thatÂ wasÂ outÂ for a few years. Ended several months ago.Â It’s been dummied down.Â Yes, TV Guide has been dummied down.Â If you thought that was impossible; read one.
I like Michael Logan on soaps and the uncanny horoscope woman who also writes for The New York Post.Â Took me years to put that together and I do have advanced degrees.Â Must have spent too much time listening to the alt rock station; still do.
One day I received a gift from TV Guide.Â When I opened the box I was blown away.Â Inside were four plastic drinking glasses with an actual TV schedule from the year 2000, and four amazing TV Guide covers.
Lucy, alone represented the 50’s.Â She still represents comedic genius.Â The 60’s are represented by Elizabeth Montgemry and one of the Darren’s; Bewitched.Â I would have picked something edgier like The Mod Squad or Name of the Game.Â Look it up, it was good
The choice for the 70’s I sort of get: Sonny and Cher; nobody in history changed coustumes like Cher, she’s a sometimes almost great actress, and I just really like her, but I was never crazy about her singing, or Sonny.Â But I would have picked any one of many series beginning with All in the Family, and The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
Oh the 80’s; that decade of opulence, and Luke and Laura.Â Yes TV Guide made a perfect choice character wise, but Hill Street Blues and LA Law changed TV forever. A Dynasty,Â was a fantasy,Â and 30 Something was welcome to my life.Â The Ralphs live in a Tudor in Forest Hills that’s very similiar to Hope and Michael’s; and Lucia and I, let’s not go there right now…
Which led to the more than perfect 90’s choice; Scully and Muldar.Â When I was in grad school I lived for Friday nights and The X Files.Â On Saturdays when I was supposed to be studying I watched anything on Channel 11–WPIX, I think.Â Yes I watched Baywatch.Â Would tape the CBS late night line-up after Letterman.Â My personal favorite was the one with the Judge who would let his hair down at night when he drove a motorcycle and was an avenger, avenging for his wife and daughter’s death.
My TV Guide plastic glasses have been washed soÂ often they look filmy.Â Use them when Rafe and Lucia come over, but I have many beautiful glasses that beg attention.Â So I use my TV Guide ones when alone.Â Though people do ask. Makes me very happy; even happier when they like sushi for breakfast.
