Vapidity of TV spills into the new year. Some of it is fun. Latest indulgence, Human Target. Compelling comic-book characters, make me laugh, as in cartoon. Especially, Guerrero, the torture specialist. Hawaii-Five-O and Psych, too. Fun is good. Biggest Loser, never got into it. Have they tried hula hooping? How about Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? They all have the same face. Lips. Speaking of TV’s demise, Will the internet replace TV as top news source?
Goldman Sachs’ Facebook deal. Another regulatory ‘end-around’ coup. See SideBizness. Any changes to NFL Playoff predictions? Joe’s NFL Picks: ‘AFC: Pats 27 Ravens 16 NFC: Eagles 31 Falcons 23 Super Bowl: Pats 34 Eagles 20. MVP Tommy Boy. Bank on it!!’
When son went off to college, family meals took on a different shape-mine. As a writer, sit too much and Dr.Husband comes home late. Eating dinner after 8 expands girth. Cooking for two, leftovers became a challenge. So, a new framework emerged for me and my butt.
‘No Dinner’ Diet: Big breakfast, walk/exercise before 9. Stand whenever possible while typing. Full dinner-sized lunch with low-fat dessert. Late afternoon ‘hula hoop’ while watching soap or silly show. Hula hooping takes inches off middle, achieves balance, helps relieve anxiety.
Early evening, make dinner. Tasting is inevitable. While waiting for supper to simmer, take a walk in good weather or shoot a comment to Cafferty in winter. Serve dinner to happy hubby. Then, eat leftovers for lunch the next day. It works! Oh yeah, have a little cocktail with Dr.H before serving his dinner, that’s what keeps it working. Less waste, waist, stress. It’s all good.
Holiday tv-mercials are baaack! Snuggies? Yup. Aunt Gladys hula hooping around in her bulky blue wool number. Not easy. I’m gonna get me the purple flower fleece. They come in camouflage with beverage holder, Lindz. Matching hoop optional. Merry Christmas everybody. Can Chia pets be far behind?
GovChrisChristie, like him, but he’ll need to hula hoop soon if he wants a national profile. Sarah tackling monetary policy? Loopy hoop. What’d you watch-Bristol hoofing or Lauer nagging W? Conan or Daily Show? Lauer’s interview getting good reviews. Conan’s whining jumping shark.
