"Game of Thrones" Plays for Keeps (**Major Spoilers**)

After Sunday night's episode of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Twitter and Facebook lit up with the outrage of faithful viewers because the main character, Lord Eddard Stark (Sean Bean, pictured below), a man of truth and honor, was summarily beheaded at the whim of a petulant and illegitimate, teen king, Joffrey Lannister.I was watching the Tony Awards and didn't get to see "Game of Thrones" until a repeat showing later in the evening and luckily didn't read any spoilers.Good thing too, because I loved it!...more

Why I'll Miss "The Oprah Winfrey Show"

The Oprah Winfrey Show is over and I've used up the last of Kleenex. Before watching the show, I had all kinds of things I planned to say about why I’ll miss Oprah’s daily hour of love, laughter, pathos, confession, inspiration and enlightenment. But what I wanted to write changed after watching the show....more

Nocturnal TV Viewing

The worse thing about insomnia is that you can’t sleep.  And when you can’t sleep and everyone else in the house can, you have few options.  Clunk around and annoy them into joining your insomniac activities or doing something sedentary.  Groggy, frustrated over not sleeping sedentary wins over clunking. As husband cannot sleep with my reading light on, but can sleep if I have the TV on, TV wins.  It must have been about 3:00 am.  I am not exactly entranced by balding men, weight loss or get rich quick schemes, I don't want to buy jewelry so I am left w...more

Which oddly everyone seemed to think provided no beat or rhythm...despite the existence of an actual percussion section and a traditional drum set. Turns out most people learn choreography to lyrics, preferably English lyrics they can sing along to, not fancy pants opera lyrics in foreign tongues....more

TLC's Extreme Couponing

The first episode of TLC's "Extreme Couponing" premiered tonight and I actually just finished watching it.  I'm not really sure if I liked it or not, I guess I felt like it was missing something. So okay, I've seen women clip coupons and extreme shop.  And it's impressive, don't get me wrong.  But how many times can you watch basically the same thing?  I hope the show branches out a bit and has tutorials, information and how couponing varies from state to state, which state has the best deals, and even maybe how women can network together and swap coupons they do...more
