Kill Me. Please.

So I'm home today with Tax Deduction the Younger, who's spiking a fever on and off. And we discovered that his favorite, proof-of-God television show has...say it with me, a spin off. That's right, folks: Dora the Explorer now has a spin off. Any guesses on the title? Ready?

Go Diego Go.

And here I thought that Dora was reason enough for me to loathe children's programming. Oh, no. Compared with Diego, Dora is bloody fabulous. Diego takes all the irritating pseudo-computer-game qualities from Dora and throws in wannabe cool tunes and characters and animal rescue operations. And, of course, Spanish. Now I'm all for teaching, and learning about animals and Spanish words. But this television show makes me want to introduce a straight-edge razor blade to my wrists.

So Go Diego Go officially tops my Kill-Me-Now Children's Show list.


Jackie's Submission Report
So my first attempt at writing dark erotica (think dark fantasy with sex as part of the plot) has resulted in a minor rewrite request. The editor wants me to include more sex. Um, okay. Say, Loving Husband...can you help me with my research? ((wink))

Diego rocks! ... Barney sucks.... The only reason I know squat is because my nephew's name is Diego. WerD!

My three-year old discovered Diego yesterday. But he's much easier to bear than the Doodlebops. Trust me.

On another note, I recognized your name from writersnet and got unreasonably excited to find out someone I (don't really) know has a blog. So, hi.

Klocko: I'll happily take Bob, Wendy and the gang over Diego and Dora any day!

Scott: I like the name Diego. It's the show I despise.

Rachel: Howdy! ((waves))

Rob: Heh, you know, those lyrics are also straight out of FINDING NEMO, if that makes it more bearable. Just add, "No eating here tonight, no eating here tonight, you're on a diet" at the end. Poof! Evil Song morphs into Pleasant Memory of Brilliant Movie.

Jackie, you're right, Finding Nemo's not a bad little film. Although my kids have brought it close to the 'no more' line, with repeat viewing.

Erotic fantasy - You wait 'til I tell Glen.

You want bad, Rob? Picture the precious Tax Deductions screaming "MINE! MINE! MINE!" like the sea gulls. Oh, wait -- that was me. Love those damn birds. "Rats with wings." Heh.

If you want entertaining family fare, try THE INCREDIBLES, especially the bonus feature, JACK JACK ATTACK. It's rolling-on-the-floor-helpless-with-mirth funny. :-)

And yep, erotic fantasy. Actually, erotic dark fantasy. Just sent in my revision to the editor. If it's accepted, I'll post it here. Heh. Is it too late to change my pen name to my mother-in-law's name? ((wink))

Got the Incredibles too. And yes all those pixar/disney things have great appeal.

Not sure my 4 year old gets all the jokes, but it's great stuff. My fav is Monters Inc. I'm a sucker for Billy Crystal.
