I’m supposed to prove how uncool I am.

There are probably plenty of reasons why I am uncool or not cool, but for this tuesday’s essay, I give you my Netflix queue.

And here are shows I’ve already watched: all five seasons of Monk.

Other shows I enjoy: Murder She Wrote, Are You Being Served?, Keeping Up Appearances, Midsomer Murders (I find Chief Inspector Barnaby impossibly hot and he’s kind of old), everything else BBC, bad movies with Doris Day, anything on TCM or AMC – especially if it’s in Technicolor, 7th Heaven, Cold Case Files, The Andy Griffith Show. I like small-town, far-fetched, improbably-resolved entertainment with low emotional commitment.

Oh, and I’m going to be a librarian – classically uncool no matter how The New York Times spins it. Though I will never play the Dewey Decimal guessing game they speak of. So I might be cool for a librarian.

I also can’t do cartwheels.

*Is anyone else amused by imagining the photo shoot that led to that Angela Lansbury picture? I wonder if they had other props.

    hmmm, you seem to like mysteries. Do you have one of those magnifying glasses at home? I think your next sweater pic should highlight your love of lansbury.

    You “can’t” or “won’t” do cartwheels? How can you not do a cartwheel? Even a bad one?

    I always land on my ass. I can do a mean tripod, though.
