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))
