1. "You'll publish books that make money again."

2. At the moment it's a toss-up between Bartlett pears and pink lady apples.

3. "Hannity and Colmes" is pretty much where I draw the line.

1. You're the top/You're the Tower of Pisa/You're the smile/On the Mona Lisa

2. Just one? Strawberries, fresh from the patch, warm from the June sun, bursting with juice. OR that peach I ate in Greece (or was it Sicily?)---the nectar ran down my arm to my elbow.

3. Law and Order: SUV

also, "Medium" scares me.

1. (front) Tomorrow will be even better.
(back) Learn Chinese - Fish = Yu

2. I would name it Irving R. Feldman. It would be an anjou pear.

3. There's one on MTV where the parents and the current boyfriend sit and watch as the girlfriend goes on dates with guys the parents pick out. Ick.

Ben is completely right: that show, whatever it's called, is truly repulsive. So is another MTV one called "Date My Mom," a clearly scripted "reality" program in which a boy goes out with three moms and chooses which daughter he wants to go out with.

Not to sound old-ish but MTV is the devil.

Karen: You're the top / You're an Arrow collar / You're the top / You're a Coolidge dollar / You're the nimble tread on the feet of Fred Astaire / You're an O'Neill drama / You're Whistler's mama / You're Camembert...

1. Soon you will awaken from this dream.

2. My favorite fruit already has a name: Papaya.

3. I was going to say that I watch TV rarely but am instantly hypnotized by whatever happens to be on the screen. But after seeing Eric's comment, I remembered a show called "Mad Money," some kind of financial advice thing on cable, maybe MSNBC, with that guy who looks like Sigmund Freud and ALWAYS SHOUTS. Not hypnotized by that one.

Ben--I laughed for a solid minute about Irving R. Feldman.

Eric--You're the purple light of a summer night in Spain...

Larry--I had that instant-hypnosis problem with those dumb VH1 "I Love the 80s" shows. Thank God we can't afford cable anymore.

1. Oh, lordy, I have no idea for what to wish these days . . .

2. Raspberries. They are one of the three finest things in life. (Peaches are a close second in the fruit category, but only really good peaches. And strawberries.)

3. Anything on Fox makes me want to throw things. The State of the Union address also makes me vomit. and kstyle, although it's actually "SVU," we call it "SUV," too, and we used to watch it pretty regularly.

Emma, you're absolutely right. I suppose it was a sort of Freudian slip, just in time for the old codger's birthday.

1. "So, what's up?"

2. While I love lots of fruits--peaches when they're sweet and crispy, barely ripe; sweet tangerines; watermelon; pineapple; raspberries right from the bush; big sweet intact purple grapes--today I'll agree with Eric: pink lady apples. I only discovered them when Cub Foods began to stock them a few months ago, and now I eat one for lunch every day.

3. The evening news. It drives me CRAZY. All the instant transitions from ten-second story to ten-second story, from death to politics to death to saved puppy to weather to sports. And the interviews. And the banter. And the inane graphics and stupid music. And the fact that they're trying to cram a whole day's worth of news into thirty minutes. You can't do nuance in thirty minutes.

And the News Voice! God, I hate the News Voice. Especially the end of voiceovers, the sentence before the speaker announces his or her name. The tone modulation is just so fakey. I can't figure out how they can do it with straight faces.

Also, "Wife Swap" and the culinary parts of "Fear Factor."
