Ugh... wet...

So... get to school tonight and it's pouring rain, and the doors to the building are locked. Apparently, since my class is in the Hebrew Building at NYU, the building is closed at sundown for Yom Kippur. Did they have the brains to post a sign for their shiska students that informed us of this? Of course not. We waited around for someone to show up and confirm what we had started to discuss among ourselves. My instructor came from Connecticut for this class, so she was mighty thrilled...

So I sloshed down to the train station at West 4th and came home. Soaked. On an air-conditioned train. Grrr. But there was chicken with black bean sauce and brown rice to be had when I got home, so my belly is warm and happy.

I was so happy that there was such lively conversation about my favorite TV show moments (of the moment, since there are way too many once I start thinking), that I'm going to put another one out there - what are your TV guilty pleasures? I know most of my friends are hip to my sad Judge Judy obsession (I record it every day so I don't miss it - love Time Warner and their magical DVR button), so that's my major one. But alas, there is more than Judge Judy in my television closet.

I have to see every episode of My Fair Brady on VH-1. I can't help it. The Surreal Life with that whole bunch was a car wreck begging to be observed. Omarosa versus Janice Dickinson? Please, don't bore me. You throw Chyna into a mix that includes Mini Me, Jane Wiedlin, a renegade Brady and some annoying rap chick among other goodies, we had the makings of TV history. I have never seen an episode of America's Next Top Model in my life and have no intention on ever doing so, but the Adrianne Curry/Christopher Knight thing was insane. The show is so horrible it's awesome.

Okay, I've shared my dark secret with you - your turn.

Guilty pleasure? Hmmm, just about any reality tv. I've watched it all, from the bachelor to The Apprentice : Martha Stewart. I'm sure I'd love the surreal life if I had cable.

Hey!! How are you? Looking forward to Friday night?

Linda Sheridan said...

um, of late, I've caught a couple of episodes of Laguna Beach....shhhh

Linda Sheridan said...

Actually come to think of it, also been watching Breaking Bonaduce. He's so intense he frightens me. If he could just channel his insanity into acting, I bet he'd win an Academy award, but the guy is an accident that's happening.

Roe said...

You know, I keep meaning to check Breaking Bonaduce out because the commercials are just so intriguing. The guy is intense defined, I agree. I'm just surprised he ain't dead yet.

Linda Sheridan said...

Hopefully he gets help, for his sake and his family's. There is something good in him, and but it's camouflaged by alcohol, 'roids...I've never seen such an insecure man.

Roe said...

Didn't he marry his wife while they were both drunk and had a one night stand?

Linda Sheridan said...

sounds right, hooked up, married eight hours later.

I am so looking forward to Friday night, I just hope it stops raining by then. Taking the bus from college point is a lot more fun when you're warm and dry.

Roe said...

Hear, hear on that. Not much sucks worse than sitting wet in a bus.

Checked out the Penelope menu... mmmm, mac and cheese...

Stacey said...

That mac and cheese is awesome, and so is the spinach dip. About the only place I do like onions.

Stacey said...

Did I mention that I miss my favorite guilty pleasure show? Scarecrow and Mrs. King...

Roe said...

The portion was just right on the mac and cheese too, especially after gorging myself on hummus and bread for an hour.
