We've been watching way too much children's television here, too. Freaking Wonder Pets still make me want to poke sticks in my eyes. But Bam-Bam has a sinus infection (part of this never ending cold he has had for.ev.er.) and our furnace broke over the weekend so we are having a new one installed, so we have to stick around and do a lot of nothing. So annoying kid's tv it is. I must admit to liking Yo Gabba Gabba. It has grown on me, it's so incredibly bizarre. Did you know the guy that does the drawing segment is Mark Mothersbaugh from Devo? That cracks me up. And the guy that does the music for the Backyardigans was in Camper Van Beethoven. For some insane reason the little one has also taken a liking to Max and Ruby. WTF is up with that show? It's like Ruby is this 5 year old who sounds and acts like an 80 year old from the Edwardian Age or something. And what's with the living situation? She and her little brother live alone in a house with no apparent parents, but their grandmother lives nearby? Why do they live alone? Why does Ruby wear dresses with bustles? Why does my child like this crappy show?


I would love to be there with you, not shoveling.

But, I would be making chili. I'm not very sophisticated with cooking.

I want a snow day.


I'm now addicted to "Charlie and Lola". ( http://www.charlieandlola.com/ ). They kill me because they sound just like the children did when I was young in England. It's too funny! I can't get enough.

When my beloved 'Sesame Street' became all Elmo ALL the TIME!!! I gave up on PBS. Moved to Nick and did okay until Steve left 'Blue's Clues' and was replaced by Joe the crazy 6' tall toddler with the speech impediment. At which point I told Wolf that at 4 years old he was well-able to get a job, so off he went on the train to the city every morning to his corner office at Schwab and my kiddie TV nightmare was over. ~LA

What I'm Reading

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love
    The true story behind the Billy Woodward shooting, the case on which Dominick Dunne based his novel, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. (*****)
  • Matt Birbeck: A Beautiful Child
    True story about the mysterious life and death of a young woman who's real identity still remains unclear. Excellent read. (****)
  • Richard Yates: Revolutionary Road
    A novel about the alienation arising from living in the "perfect" suburbs. Hailed as a great literary book. I thought it was okay, at best. (**)
  • Annie Proulx: Close Range, Wyoming Stories
    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)
  • Nancy Caldwell Sorel: The Women Who Wrote The War
    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
  • Ann Rule: Too Late To Say Good Bye
    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
    Ehhh. Better than the back of a cereal box, I guess. (**)
