Parental Guidance?

My 8-year-old nephew is watching something on the Cartoon Network called "Hellboy" -- or "H-E-double-hockeysticks-boy", as my nephew calls it. "That's not right!" he exclaimed when he heard the name. He seemed genuinely shocked that they could say that word on TV. I asked him if he was allowed to watch this sort of thing, and he assured me that everything on the Cartoon Network was safe for a child over 7. Maybe I should verify this with an adult. Maybe this makes me the "cool aunt." Maybe I won't be allowed to babysit anymore. :-)

Too Much TV

I desperately yearn for a QuikTop to keep my soda fresh. Maybe this will be the one time that something "seen on TV" isn't crap!

Don't Tell Buffy

I love the news stories that pop up in the headlines on slow news days:
"Vampires A Mathematical Impossibility, Scientist Says"

This might be important news if the math were good, but it's not. This "expert" assumes that a vampire sires new vampires at the rate of one a month, which is not even close. And the effect of slaying and accidental sunlight exposure is not even factored in.

Netflix crisis!

Aaaahhhhh!!!! I accidently sent my own DVD back to Netflix! Now they have my Alias Season 1 disc 2, and I have their CSI:Miami Season 2 disc 6! It totally sucks because if I had accidently sent back something like "Office Space" or "Anchorman" I could just go to Target and buy myself another one, but how am I supposed to get another copy of "Alias Season 1 Disc 2"? I'm going to put an ad on Craigslist and see what happens. And I guess I can keep Netflix's DVD, since they're keeping my DVD, but there's a lot of movies I'd rather have for free instead of "CSI:Miami Season 2 disc 6".

TV Review: Eagles v. Packers

Sometimes I get depressed that most professional football players are young enough that, biologically, I could be their mother. (Same thing happens with supermodels.) Brett Favre is now my favorite quarterback based solely on the fact that he is older than me.
