Insomnia, Golden Girls, and a beef

I experience semi-regular bouts of insomnia, and classic TV seems to be the cure. There's something comforting about watching characters and storylines I grew up with -- they're like old friends.  Lately, I've been rewatching (for the eleventy billionth time) episodes of The Golden Girls. Dorothy, Blanche, Rose, and Sophia are my late night buddies -- all that's missing is the cheesecake.

“What makes [whiskerslist] so damned funny? If you’ve ever spent a blessed second with a cat in your life, you’ll know. Angie has burrowed deep into the cross section of psyche where cat action meets human vocabulary and has come up with gold. You’ll be howling—in a good way!”

Jackson Galaxy, Cat Behaviorist and Host of Animal Planet's My Cat From Hell
