I often tell people, there is no greater museum city in the world than Washington, DC and having done a lot of traveling, I am pretty sure of what I say. But my favorite art museum? It has to be the Met.    …

If you have a dry sense of humor and a sense of the absurd, this show may be a real find for you.    Here's the plot. Jonathan, a struggling novelist with a single book under his belt, …

The Rocky Horror Glee Show
I love Glee but I didn't enjoy this episode as much as usual. The story was all over the place. One minute they were putting it on, the next minute the show was "too adult." Why? Well the shortness of …

David Copperfield
If you were forced to read this book when you, and hated it, pick it up again. The characters will stay with you like old friends.

Rachael Ray
Here's the thing about Rachel Ray, she's an amazing recipe writer. For someone who writes so fast, her recipes are original and almost always work.

Food Network
What is it about watching people cook that can be so comforting? I don't know but sometimes watching Paula, Rachel et al, hits the spot.

30 Rock
Unusually sophisticated. How I wish this kind of thing were the network's formula for competing with cable.

MASH

Hi Robin!

I just wanted to let you know that I created the Political Memoirs badge at Cafe Libri (http://www.lunch.com/cafelibri/badges/Politi...moirs-22189-74-1-1.html). It's currently set up so that members need to review 3 books on the list to earn it. Let me know if you had other recommendations that should be on the badge list. :)
