Take, for instance, the 6-hr A&E version of Pride and Prejudice. This past winter, as if 24-7 morning sickness wasn’t enough, I got the wicked, nasty flu twice. It was terrible. At one point I thought I would die — and I didn’t care. But, what could I do? Rest, drink lots of fluids, and watch P&P, of course.
During those two months of illness, I clocked in a lot of hours with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle. The FishBoys, who have radar for anything tv-related, would come down the stairs, foolishly thinking I had turned on something for them. Their reaction?
Not this again. Which disk are you on?

Kaboose has all the details on creating a Summer Spa Mom’s Night.
