I delayed [ profile] mrmoosie 's departure for work. Apparently, he can't leave the house while SciFi from his childhood is playing on YouTube. I was searching (and searching) for the "rag-tag fugitive fleet voice-over. It turns out it is supposed to be in the end credits.

I've seen the A-team episode (not on YouTube, but on RTV, one of the many channels available to us) where the A-team has to meet their client at Universal Studios. The writers/director could not resist the obvious and had a Cylon come up to Face. Face did a great double-take.

[ profile] mrmoosie went to work early today, and for some reason, Emily and I woke up before he left. We've watched a awful lot of TV today.

I wish he were home already.

Our oven/range is still being a problem. Or is being a problem again, depending on how you want to look at it.

We just watched "The Electric Company" the new one on PBS. Then I dug out my DVDs of the old one and we're watching the very first episode from 1971.

I hate visiting my brother during football season. Or in fact, when anything he likes is on TV. They kept switching back between (some game) and the concert downtown.

I might just be done anyway. I've been looking forward to seeing everyone, having them be in town and going down for the inauguration for so long that actually doing it seems anticlimatic. And having the TV on in the background all the time is definitely like not having them there at all.

On Monday, the children watched "The Grinch who Stole Christmas". On Tuesday, the children watched "The Polar Express". In SCHOOL. For an educational aspect, the children were asked to draw their favorite parts.

Emily has had trouble with being overly sensitive (or more sensitive than her age-peers) to troubling elements in TV. I wrote this down on her intake form. If the teacher isn't aware of the issue, she might pick an edgy show and wind up with a crying little girl.

So far, Emily thinks that the grown-ups on the polar express train are ghosts. She also isn't sure why the Grinch started out with a heart two sizes too small.

Emily is using my business cards to make a house of cards.

I think she is remembering how to do it from a "Fetch" episode.

Tomorrow, she goes to school.

Not getting it tonight, unless I leave the house. Or find some noise-canceling earphones.

Emily and T are trading jokes. And pretending to *be* Ruff Ruffman. They are setting up a show.

I really need to do more Spanish tonight. But I need some quiet.

Emily freaked out at something shown on a TV. [profile] tharline and I had left her with a babysitter who didn't know her well, and they turned on the TV. After crying and perhaps screaming, she told the babysitter to turn it off. And things got better, and games were played and all was fine by the time we picked her up.

It turns out, it was Scooby-Doo. I think the movie. Many 4 and 5 year olds have seen that with no troubles.

Now, she watches the Sprout network every week, I know it shows Zoobumafoo and DragonTales and The Comfy Couch (or maybe it's The GoodNight Show). She seems to be fine with that. She watches The Little Mermaid a lot, and even Ursala doesn't seem to scare her. She won't watch Finding Nemo and wants to give the DVD away.

I think I might have to talk to the kindergarten teacher about this. She is unusually sensitive (to TV and screens) and eventually teachers do use filmstrips to teach specific ideas.  Maybe I will get "the form" again and I will write down that she has trouble with TV.

I have always been pretty careful with music, playing children's stuff or classical. I don't know if it extends to music/ things she hears also.
