The Circle of Lethargy still has me, I'm afraid. I could sleep til noon every day.
We have decided we watch too much television. We are officially watching television for the sake of watching television. What does one do in the evenings? One eats dinner and watches television. More enterprising and energetic folks probably do the laundry and clean the floors and prepare for the next day.
We are trying to decide: How much TV is too much? What is an appropriate portion for an evening? Which shows do we actually enjoy, and which are just filler?
Have I mentioned that almost everyone I know is pregnant with their second child? When I manage to get pregnant with my first, everyone else's kids will be graduating from high school.
Have you heard that Mr. Rogers is now being blamed for raising a generation of worthless, self-entitled brats? "Experts" would like to rape your warm and fuzzy childhood memories of this grandfatherly storyteller, who, GOD FORBID, told us kids we were special just for being who we were.
Older generations would like you to know: YOU ARE NOT SPECIAL SIMPLY FOR EXISTING. You are actually a worthless narcissist. We would like to kill your dreams now. Now be quiet and go away.
I don't remember Mr. Rogers ever saying: You deserve an A in class because you're special. You don't have to work hard.
If there is a generation of people who believe this, it is not because Mr. Rogers told them that. Get a fricking grip.
By the way, thank you to Jennifer for that link.
