TV junkie

NewFNP has enjoyed her weekend. Hairdo. Facial. NYT Crossword. Juno. (Better late than never.) And, today, newFNP has indulged in a guilty pleasure: TV.

NewFNP generally does not have cable, but has something called "antenna service" through her local rip-off cable company. Otherwise, she could not watch any TV at all, not even The Office or How I Met Your Mother and that is just not realistic. But every once in a while, her rip-off cable company graces her with basic cable. She never knows how long it will last, but she has enjoyed fully four hours of a frustratingly glorious program: What Not To Wear.

NewFNP would kill to get on a program that gave her five grand to go on a shopping spree in SoHo. Plus free hair-do and a little make up advice? Please. And these ladies get all pissy about having the opportunity to throw away their Kohl's and softer side of Sears wardrobes! Puh-leez!! Say goodbye to the puffy paint sweatshirt and Christmas cardigan and hello to Olive & Bettes and Bloomies on Broadway.

NewFNP would be such a better NP if she had five thousand dollars worth of free clothes. She would even promise to read peer-reviewed journals on the subway rides between boutiques!

Dare to dream, newFNP. Dare to dream.

Dream is just what newFNP will do on her day off tomorrow. Dream a little dream of fashion.

Don't you wish that every Monday was MLK day? If only the Tuesday after MLK day didn't mean twice the work. Another guilty pleasure when cable spontaneously arrives is America's Next Top Model reruns on VH1... I could watch it for days!

I have to say, I went without cable for the last two years and What Not to Wear is the only show I missed.
