The Teddy Awards are upcoming, and Mary is nominated. Beyond the nomination, Mary doesn't seem to be having a very good time for the few days leading up to the awards ceremony as she runs into a string of bad luck. By the time the awards ceremony arrives, she's in no shape to attend. Despite the continuing trouble she has even getting ready for the ceremony, she decides to attend anyway. In her rough shape (and looking like she is in rough shape), will she want to win to let all the important people in the Twin Cities media see her? Written by Huggo

Mary's bad luck is hysterical
14 April 2012 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

I've been a Mary-o-phile since it's 1st run. I grew up with her, and, I still love her.

I've said to people 'there's no problem that you have, that can't be solved by an episode of Mary.

This is one episode that is one of my favourites. So many aphorisms I live by, I learned here, e.g: colds; 'three days coming, three days with you, and three days going.'

Nothing goes right for our Mare. It all starts with a cup of coffee, that's spilt onto here sweater at work, and things only start to go downhill from that point.

It all leads up to Mary and the gang at the Teddy's, where Mary is nominated. I don't want to give away anything about this show, other than to say, this episode has me still laughing, all these yeas later.
