On a perfect day, in a perfect neighbourhood, in a perfect house, a seemingly perfect, Mary Alice Young killed herself. Mary Alice had five neigbours, five good-looking women who's lives aren't that perfect either. There's clumsy Susan, Martha Stewart from Stepford- Bree, model Gabrielle, mother of four Lynette and predatory divorcee Edie Britt.
It's not Sex and the City, it's not Friends, BUT ITS THE BEST DRAMA/COMEDY EVER!!!

I LOVE THIS SHOW!
REX: You're dating my wife, call me Rex!

Jun 14 Word of the Day
Referring to women who are sexually or romantically attracted to other women. Applies to both lesbians and bisexual women, as it is only the same-sex attraction that matters, not any other attractions the women may have.

Originates from the Greek poet Sappho, a bisexual woman from the Isle of Lesbos, from which we get the term lesbian.
The sapphic women greatly enjoyed each others company.

Possibly one of the best shows on television. Ever.
The show follows four housewives living on the seemingly perfect Wisteria Lane. The women all deal with dramatic issues; such as suicide, affairs, and troublesome teens. Susan Mayer is a hopeless romantic trying to find a man (currently her plumber). Bree Van De Kamp is "Martha Stewart on steroids", who recently witnessed her boyfriend's suicide. He was also the same man who killed her husband, Rex. Then, there is the ever popular and sexy Gabrielle Solis, played by Eva Longoria. Her character has an elicit affair with a teenage garden, the becomes pregnant -> miscarriage. Last but not least is Lynette Scavo, a working mother of four. All her character does is deal with parenting and marriage issues..

A shot; when you empty a bottle of pills into a glass of whiskey and just down it, and then you lie down somewhere and wonder what will happen to you.
On the Whiskey Tour, we got so drunk we almost let Mike take a Desperate Housewife, but then told him not to.
