Our Spring Break was very short, but we made the best of it! We saw How To Train Your Dragon yesterday, and we all enjoyed it, even Bing. It is very entertaining for a kids film. Then we hit the pool… It was really our first time swimming this year and the kids remembered most of their swim lessons. I coated them extra thick with sunblock… those kids are extra white after the winter!
Lucy is having a little bit of a hard time with Edison’s passing… It’s hard for most of us to get our heads around death, let alone when we are 6!
I was listening to the radio after dropping off the kids today and I heard one of those AT&T Fios commercials, the ones that promote that you can record a show in one room and watch it in any other room. I started to think how little televsion has mattered to me in recent years… and I think new technology is partially to blame. It used to take some effort to insure you saw a show, set the VCR or more recently DVR or make sure you were home and tuned in. Now there is never a fear of missing out, between DVR’s and the internet you can always find what you missed… And because of that there is no urgency, no excitement. Now not only do I know if I miss a program I can find it, but if it actually is worth seeing I’ll hear some buzz afterward and I can track it down then. This year every episode of The Office that I watched was online and only after someone asked if I had seen a scene from it. Maybe it’s just me, but I guess having something always available actually makes you use it less.
I still haven’t filed my taxes, I have to do it this week! I have to find someplace to live too! (Thanks for the listings Ms. Heather!) I have a tendency to put off things I really don’t want to deal with until the last minute… OK, time to jump in!
Just in time for Spring Break! It’s Back. Don’t forget to “Like” Jack! (Yes, I’m begging for fans!) This is horrible. Flipping is making a comeback. Republican’s like a good spanking too! Moooommmmmmm!
Two more quick things!!! One, I’ll be co-hosting The PM Show with Eric Horn on CRN 1 at 4pm Pacific today and two, Can you believe Ricky Martin is gay!?!?
Rock On, Jack
