The Tragedy of Our Lives

It is like watching a train wreck. Day in and day out. Morning, noon, and night.

Tonight during dinner, Megs and I discussed Blue's Clues, focusing on the the transition from Steve to Joe. Megs guessed correctly that the transition occurred because Steve went to college.

However, there are many questions that remain unanswered such as did Steve live alone? Where was the parental supervision? Where did Steve's brother Joe live before? How did Steve, and Joe, have the money to pay for the house and buy food? And how demented are they for talking to a shovel, a pail, a clock, a bar of soap, a side-table drawer, a salt shaker, a paper shaker, and numerous other items in the house. Why did Steve talk to these items but not mention his parents or other family members? Why can Blue, Magenta, and the Green Dog not talk but why can the Kangeroo, the Orange Cat, and Periwinkle speaking in English?

What about Steve's neighbor Miranda who is friends with Magenta? What is her story? And does she live alone? Talk to inanimate objects? Are there any other people in the town that think Steve or Joe needs to speak with the proper doctors?

I have said way too much. Hence, the tragedy.

I think to show respect, or to pity us more, our fellow rhetoricians need to share their stories.

We're still reeling from PBS's decision to change the schedule so that Sesame Street comes on two hours later than it used to (and, therefore, two hours later than Supa-T's morning TV time). Now we're stuck watching Little Einsteins (which isn't horrible) and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (which is)--because NO ONE wants to watch Arthur.

As for MMC--why does everyone wear pants and shoes except for Donald?

We did enjoy Sesame Street's "Abby in Wonderland"--until Supa-T made us watch it over and over and over again. The SS movies don't have the same level of adult appeal that Dreamworks and Disney films do.

Supa-T desperately wants to watch Blue's Clues. Unfortunately, it only comes on super early or after he's in bed. I'm thinking we may have to suck it up and get a DVR.

We're not really fans of Blue's Clues around here--the tube isn't on when it airs.

We don't care for Sesame Street's new time slot either, Supa. Although I think we like the addition of Sid the Science Kid.

Wild Man enjoys Curious George, although it isn't my favorite b/c I dislike that he always gets away with whatever trouble he causes. Sesame Street doesn't come on until 10:00 here, which is way past our morning TV time, and Thomas the Tank Engine, a recent favorite, only comes on at 11:00. Wild Man is stuck with George and Sid the Science Kid, which we all like, but frankly, I'm tired of seeing the same two episodes.

I may not have kids, but I live vicariously through Your guys kids (primarily Didder-Didder) but I believe that Word World is a pretty amazing show. However, I am afraid that perhaps the ability to cut a pig in half, based on his P I G, may cause some great distress once a little tyke finds out that D A D does come apart so easily? And what if a small person wonders if C A T can reattach itself, perhaps the family kitty can also do the same? And has this whole show just started to create an entire generation of peoples who believe that dismemberment is a fun game?
