Everyone is talking about the Food Network. I have had many conversations discussing the various "characters" on the show. My friend Wendy hates Alton Brown, whom I love - geeky skits and all. Everyone is annoyed with Sandra Lee (To quote Wendy "I wish she would stop jacking with the angel food cake") and everyone agrees that Rachel Ray talks with her hands too much. By the way, there is apparently a Rachel Ray drinking game- take a shot everytime she says "E.V.O.O" or "Cook up." I love to eat and cook, so I understand why I watch it sometimes, but it's almost a compulsion with me now. I think part of it is that as I get older my attention span has gotten shorter. I can no longer do a one hour drama (except for my beloved Gilmore Girls). I am sick to death of crime shows (pun unintended) and don't find the comedies funny. But the food network- ah, thirty prepackaged minutes of comfort.
