Death to Carrots

I am an analyzer.  You name it and I probably have mulled over the thing, person, place or idea in my head at some point in my life. 

I most enjoy analyzing people- especially when they are doing something I wouldn't do.  There are times I decide that I want to try that thing or do what that person does, because there HAS to be a reason to do it or like it or eat it.

For example, I have never particularly enjoyed the taste of peas and carrots (specifically cooked peas or fresh carrots). Gross.  I know there is a reason why people eat these vegetables.  Someday I will figure it out.

I try a carrot every once in a while just in case my tastebuds have matured.

For example, the day I learned that my father had died and was flying to Indiana to be with my family, the stewardess passed around a small package of carrots for each of the passengers.  I remember thinking, I might as well get used to doing things I don't want to do. I ate every last raw carrot.

I still hate the taste of them.

Next up?  British Comedy.  My sister and I are going to spend an evening watching British Comedy on PBS because, gosh darn it, I am going to learn to like it (or at least appreciate it).  I have always wanted to be British... and funny.

what are you starting with for British comedy? i love it, and i am willing to offer beginners suggestions if you don't have them already!

I like some of the British comedies and some of them do nothing for me. You have to start with Keeping Up Appearances. It is so funny.

I will definitely start with Keeping Up Appearances. I was reading the Saturday night line up on PBS and it looks like the other options are

1. Are You Being Served
2. Good Neighbors

Good? Bad? Any thoughts?

If there are others that you recommend, please let me know!

I am determined to at least appreciate the genre.

Wish me luck.
