starting over: finally losing it

has anyone seen the show starting over? when it was in chicago, i tried to make a point to catch it now and again, if only just for sight-seeing purposes. also, you may remember a woman on that first season named marilyn who wanted to be a comedian. starting over called me at csz and asked me to coach her because of my stand-up experience. they ended up going with someone who had chosen stand-up as a career, which i have not (cue chrissy saying i should've).

got home from ballo's, got a bowl of cereal, and flipped the old teev to wgn. first thought: this is still on? second thought: aww, they're still sad. third thought: really? - after watching a woman's goal flash across the bottom - "ridding life of chaos". fourth thought: you couldn't write this show as more of a bit. iyanla, one of the life coaches, just whipped out a brown sock pupp with googly-eyes and soul-patch and instructed Chaos to act out a show to rid herself of bags.

i'm riveted.
FPDG: truth or... truth?
if you had to have a slogan flash under your name - your focus and goal to "graduate from the house", what would yours be?

bits welcome.

Same as ever:

"Acquire the services of a henchman or henchmen."

I've always wanted to be able to point to someone, yell, "SEIZE HIM!", and have a person or persons standing by at all times to make that happen.

Also, it's pretty much a proven fact that henchmen are a prerequisite for world, national, or even local domination.
