LOL! I'm not touching that.

Where has Leafette been?


I dropped a church tower on Black Magga.
Killed her.

Gonna get a tattoo of it to celebrate my awesomeness.

Lovely Lullabies Boutique, the store that Treppa founded three years ago, is now officially closed. Today we lock up for the last time after a day of business. Now we'll take the time to get everything boxed up and moved to our new location, with a new name and mission!

I'm sorry Studpuffin and Treppa. It seems like all the cool places are closing down nowadays...

And thanks for the thoughts on CF upthread guys. It helps.

I am glad that my friend's son who I am watching this morning likes Sesame Street as his favorite show and not something awful like The Wiggles. At least Sesame Street doesn't require a San check. ;)


Don't be too sure about that. Each time I see Elmo, I have to make a reflex check ... from stabbing out my eyes.

I've been subjected to all manner of evil that disguises itself as childrens programming. I am inured to it. Elmo is so low on the evil scale I don't even have to roll. He is utterly ignorable. Unlike certain dinosaurs. *shudder*

I agree. While I hate Elmo with a passion -- there are far worse out there.


omg, that is too cute! He picked up the Rock Band mic off its stand so he could sing along with sesame street! Too much cuteness. :)

this may sound strange coming from me, but I don't understand the Elmo hate. He's just a fuzzy monster kids love. I loved Grover myself when I was a kid, and was disappointed when Super Grover didn't get his own show or come to my house. I dunno. It's weird to me. sips Haterade (tm) thoughtfully

Two things. 1) His high-pitched whiny voice is enough to drive anyone insane. And 2) Sesame Street was always about all the different characters. You had Cookie Monster, Grover, The Count, Bert, Ernie, Kermit, etc. They all seemed to get pretty close to equal time. Now that Elmo became popular, it is no longer "Sesame Street" -- it's "Elmo Street".

It's the voice. Elmo's voice is pitched at just that level of shrill whininess to incite rage, especially in parents. The deliberately bad sentence structure to sound more 'childish' just adds to the irritation.

And excellent point about the fact that he gets more screen time.

Because you promised to feed and wash the last one and I ended up having to do all the work. You said it'd be different with the parrot, and look what happened with that!

I'm also less thrilled with Sesame Street since they changed their focus from general education (reading, writing, arithmetic, etc.) to life skills (be nice, share, etc.). That, and apparently cookies are "bad" since Cookie Monster doesn't eat cookies anymore.

That parrot is definitely deceased, and when I purchased it not 'alf an hour ago, you assured me that its total lack of movement was due to it bein' tired and shagged out following a prolonged squawk.

To be fair, the life skills stuff was always there. Also, I found that invaluable. I would often use episodes of Sesame Street to help Bryce understand social concepts. Things like illustrating emotions and explaining social rules like sharing or taking turns. I liked how they would come out and explain it.

I don't mind that -- just not at the exclusion of the other. The counting pinball machine was brilliant and is no longer done. There is a significant lack of quality educational programming for that target audience. I have a boxed DVD set of the old Electric Company and two "Old School" Sesame Street DVD sets. My 5-year-old likes those just as much (if not more) than the current ones. While part of me feels like I'm shaking my cane while talking about this -- they just don't make programming like they used to. ;-)

I never cared for the pinball machine. But I get your point. Yeah, it was nice when the segments were actually about numbers or letters. And there was a real focus on reading that's been kinda lost. But I never really got outraged about that because I had no trouble teaching that stuff at home. It was the social stuff I needed the extra help with. Sesame Street and the Backyardigans were the best shows for that. And as for Elmo, even though he loved him as all little kids do, I remember Bryce used to yell at the tv because he would get so upset when Elmo used incorrect sentence structure. Was hilarious watching a four year old lecture the tv on grammar. :)

But seriously, there was a lot of crap on tv when I was little too. It's just different crap now. If you look you can still find good programming. Between the Lions is great for teaching reading skills, for example.

Great, now I'm picturing Cookie Monster singing that one Amy Winehouse song about not going to rehab...
