The Fiji Water Girl! PLUS: Sick bed viewing!
ABW is by Dan Barrett who is ready for another nap.
I’ve been down with the flu for the last few days, which has had me on the couch watching a whole lot of TV. Sick bed TV selection is always a challenge - you never know when you might drift off to sleep. I watched four episodes of Bosch yesterday and have no idea what happened in any of it.
But, I’m feeling better today and have been watching Sex Education and Derry Girls on Netflix. Both are incredibly charming and I don’t think it’s the fever speaking. The Netflix algorithm has pushed Sex Education into everyone’s feeds the past week, but do a search for Derry Girls - it’s fab.
Anyway… I want to get back to the sick bed, so it’s a super short email from me today. Should be back to regular emails from tomorrow.
The Fiji Water Girl, Kelleth Cuthbert, will appear on daytime soap Bold & The Beautiful on Feb 6. Mark it in your calendars.
