The Fall of the Berlin Wall

The Fall of the Berlin Wall

I remember being a sophmore at Syracuse University, reading in my Delplain Hall dorm room about this happening How incredible it must have been to be there. It still — 15 years later — gives me chills to think about what it must have been like.

Wait a minute. It’s been 15 years!?!? Okay, just had another “I’m older than I feel” moments.

You know you’re a parent when…

…90% of your TiVo entries are taken up by children’s shows.

For exmple:
==========
The Wiggles
Bear in the Big Blue House
Zoboomafoo
Oobi
Oobi
Maisy
The Wiggles
Sesame Street
Bear in the Big Blue House
Zoboomafoo
Oobi
Maisy

The Wiggles
Maisy
Sesame Street

==========

And then, finally, a show not for Thing One. It’s not just that there’s a lot of her shows constantly being recorded (there are), but that — and this has happend plenty of times before — as soon as we delete a show, that’s the exact episode she wants to watch. So instead of doing the compassionate thing for our TiVo and deleting shows after she watches them, we just keep the list full of her shows, just in case she wants to watch the Maisy episode with the train or the Wiggles with Captain Feathersword doing brain surgery. Because of this, the drive on the TiVo is constantly full or close to it. The average lifespan now of shows not marked “Save until I delete” is about two days.

Just read this on someone’s blog:

“Blogging is this communal experience of many Internet users publishing and sharing their thoughts and ideas.”

So, okay…

*sound of crickets*

Is this thing on?

Posted by pete on 29th October 2004

Okay. I’ve finally gotten around to getting a blog online. I have no idea what I’ll be saying here or even if I’ll have anything to say. Maybe this will just turn into a breeder-blog. Who knows, but it’s installed and running.
