Writing Can Be Murder

Appropriate bedtime viewing?

Filed under: Uncategorized — jenniferelbaum @ 11:24 am

As the saying goes, “opposites attract”. DH and I are opposites. I am pretty much reminded of this every single day, but the other night this point was really driven home.

We usually watch reruns of  Will & Grace before we nod off. Now to be fair, DH would probably rather watch the news, but I can’t watch the news at night because I get too upset and aggravated to sleep, so we watch a stupid sitcom. I HATE sitcoms — don’t reference Friends, or Seinfeld, or 2 and 1/2 Men around me because I’ve never sat through an episode, but now, in the interest of marital bliss and sweet dreams I’ve seen every episode of Will & Grace…at least six times.

The other night W&G wasn’t on, so I seized the remote, and flipped to what I wanted to watch: Murder by the Book on TruTV (previously CourtTV). If you haven’t seen it, you can learn all about it at: http://www.trutv.com/shows/murder_by_the_book/episodes/index.html#210

 Murder, dismemberment, forensic evidence — I was in heaven. DH was in hell. He complained bitterly about my viewing choice, calling it the stuff of nightmares.

Needless to say, I won’t be watching any true life crime show before bed again any time soon.

 ETA: While DH will concede that we are opposites, he requests that I let everyone know that HE is the good one.  Happy honey?



  1. LOL! While my DH was playing video games with DS the other night, I sat down to watch Snapped on the Oxygen netwrok. All about women who kill their husbands. When DH ambled upstairs and asked what I was watching I told him, “You probably don’t want to know.”

  2. LOL — that’s priceless —

    guess for them that means that DH means Dead Husband!
