Golden Girls

I had an interview today and am not sure how it went. But the salary was below what I’m looking for (and I don’t think it’ll be negotiable since it’s a startup non-profit with not much $$ to begin with). At least I can see it as another interview experience and I was able to make a good contact. The woman I interviewed with actually knows my workplace and has helped put together a sneaker drive for us around the holidays with her kids’ school. The rest of the day was nice and relaxing. I pretty much slept late, went to the interview, came home and watched TV for the rest of the day. I caught an episode of Golden Girls I like…of course I like most of the episodes, but in this one, Blanche’s daughter plans to have a child by artificial insemination and she’s very much against it…there are jokes made, ha ha. But in the end she’s accepting of it and realizes that she loves her daughter and this is her decision. I love that the show was actually open talking about such topics. When I was young I didn’t really get Golden Girls, but when I watch it now, I can truly appreciate it. It might have been one of the last shows (on network TV anyway) that was along the lines of All In the Family, Mary Tyler Moore or Maude in its frankness and ability to make light of real issues.

Of course I love some shows on network TV that are still on…The Office, Ugly Betty, Desperate Housewives. But none of them even touch that golden era of sitcoms.
