suck it, dora

Newsweek has a good article on "Sesame Street", That Show That Counts.

Reading the article reminded me how truly remarkable that show has been. It's easy to dismiss it as just a children's show, but the show was truly ground-breaking.

(And what does Dora give us???? Nothing but yelling at backpack.)

I was watching Diego (Doras cousin/brother I don't know whatever) in Amsterdam. The thing about that show was that it was pretty educational up to the point where a condor raised the sun with his wings. It must of been confusing for the kids, very educational then plain out fudging.

The baby condors couldn't fly at night so an adult condor raised the sun with it's wings. At least that's my understanding, the thing was half in Dutch and half in English, my 4 year old cousin was translating for me LOL ;D

What in the world are you doing up now? And is that why you are talking gibberish? ;-)

My godchild Abby thought Diego was the man. I was the cool Aunt the year I got her Diego jammies.

(I hate him slightly less than Dora.)

I was just taking a break between naps. I shall be returning to the land of nod momentarily.

Is Diego supposed to be more of a grown up? I can never tell.

You're asking me? I have never watched a couple episode without falling asleep. Abby once threw a pillow at me shouting "Wakey, Wakey, Auntie Gatz".

Sweet dreams to you.
