Which television shows do you just refuse to miss?
I record most everything for viewing at a convenient time and so that I can fast-forward through commercials. I never miss recording 24, Prison Break, Rescue Me, and Gray’s Anatomy.
There is only one show that I always watch in real time and for which I will clear the calendar, ignore the phone, tell the kids not to bug me, and threaten my husband within an inch of his life if he starts yapping (I hate watching t.v. with him because he talks incessantly), and that program is “The Sopranos.”
It’s the best show ever in the history of television.
Who did you last speak to on the telephone?
Actually, it was my husband making the “what time are you coming home and what do you want for dinner?” call.
How many pillows do you keep on your bed?
I have two: One is meant to be used as back support when you are sitting in your bed reading. I turn it upside down and backwards so that it forms a wedge shape, and then put my regular pillow on top of it. I find that it is just the right angle of slope to help with my acid reflux which was only diagnosed a few months ago in conjunction with the allergy testing I underwent. Thank God for the allergist who knew that most people who have heartburn don’t even know it (I didn’t) and 85% of all people with asthma also have acid reflux. Between the pillow placement and Prilosec OTC I have rediscovered what it is like to get quality, uninterrupted sleep.
Name one addition to your computer (software, hardware, etc.) that you’d love to have.
One of my friends keeps bugging me to get a camera, but I tell him, “You don’t need to see this,” because when I come through the door of my house, I start peeling my street clothes off and am always in an oversized t-shirt or nightshirt when I’m at home.
What is your favorite foreign food?
Mexican, of course!
