I grew up on reruns of The Golden Girls, The Facts of Life, Keeping Up Appearances, Laverne & Shirley, I Love Lucy and Designing Women. I've been addicted to television ever since.

My newer televisual obsessions include: Cougar Town, The Good Wife, Veep, Archer, Arrested Development, Orange is the New Black, Mindy Project, Girls, AbFab, Miranda, 30 Rock, True Blood, Orphan Black, Game of Thrones, AHS, The Office, Supernatural and of course The Real Housewives.

Portugal are my favorite football team. Ronaldo and Raul Meireles are my favorite footballers.

My dream: creating my own series.
Or publishing a book.

Currently, I'm Director/Editor for RedCarpetTips.com. And I'm a Bilingual Copy Editor for a medical company. I also teach English for said company. I'm fluent in French, Portuguese, Spanish.

The One With The Tumblr Post of All Thanksgivings:

Friends gave us ten seasons, and ten, memorable, Thanksgiving Day Themed episodes. So here are the aforementioned episodes.

  • The One Where Underdog Gets Away (Season 1)
  • The One With The List (Season 2)
  • The One With The Football (Season 3)
  • The One With Chandler in a Box (Season 4)
  • The One With All The Thanksgivings (Season 5)
  • The One Where Ross Got High (Season 6)
  • The One Where Chandler Doesn’t Like Dogs (Season 7)
  • The One With The Rumor (Season 8)
  • The One With Rachel’s Other Sister (Sister 9)
  • The One With The Late Thanksgiving (Season 10)

Josephine Marcus (played by Friends alumna, Lisa Kudrow) gave a brilliant response to the claims of lacking experience. And, while she may be a fictional character, politicians tend to perpetuate the belief that women are weaker than men. This was her response:

It’s not about experience, James. It’s about gender. Reston is saying I don’t have the balls to be president, and he means that literally. It’s offensive. It’s offensive to me; and to all the women whose votes he’s asking for…And it’s not just Governor Reston speaking in code about gender; it’s everyone, yourself included.

The only reason we’re doing this interview in my house is because you requested it. This was your idea. And yet, here you are, thanking me for inviting you into my lovely home. That’s what you say to the neighbor lady who baked you chocolate chip cookies. This pitcher of iced tea isn’t even mine. It’s what your producers set here. Why?—Same reason you called me a “real-life Cinderella story.” It reminds people that I’m a woman without using the word. For you it’s an angle, I get that, and I’m sure you think it’s innocuous but guess what, it’s not…Don’t interrupt me when I’m speaking. You’re promoting stereotypes, James. You’re advancing this idea that women are weaker than men. You’re playing right into the hands of Reston and into the hands of every other imbecile who thinks a woman isn’t fit to be Commander-in-Chief. Yes governor, I’m talking about you. Seven years, I served in the United States army, which is seven more years than Governor Reston ever served, a fact you conveniently omitted from my intro. How about soldier? Lieutenant?

Throwback Thursday: The Comeback

This gem starred Lisa Kudrow as an aging former TV “It Girl” named Valerish Cherish whose return to television included a supporting role in a sitcom of hypersexual twentysomething year-olds, and her own reality series based on her comeback. It was brilliant, satirical, and ahead of its time. I wish it was given a second season to further prove its groundbreaking humor and angle—mocking the mechanics of filming a reality TV show.

In a time where Jersey Shore and Real housewives dominate pop culture, it’s a reward to see something like The Comeback, gently tease such a guilty pleasure genre that gets manipulated in…editing. Plus, Kudrow was superb as Cherish, which is why she garnered an Emmy nomination. She should have won. I do need to see that!
