When I was in middle school I used to come home, sit down in my little uniform before tennis, and watch this strange PBS game show called Where in the World is Carmen San Diego? It had this giant map of the world on the WGBH studio floor and kids would have a minute to stick cones on the countries the announcer would call out.

The espresso-cheerful announcer would shout, "Ready, set, go! Carmen went to Russia! To Russia!"

And the kid would race over carrying a cone and put it somewhere on Russia, which was a pity-kiss since it covered a fifth of the board.

Then the announcer would say, "Carmen went to Botswana! Botswana!"

And the kid would stumble and go, "Uh, pass?"

"Carmen went to France! To France!"

Okay, France was good. The kid knew France....

"Carmen went to Chad! To Chad!"

Suspense would build, did the player know where Chad was? Yes she did!

If after dashing around the studio the tweenager placed ten cones in a minute, he or she got a mail-in certificate for an atlas. Yep, an atlas was the prize.

I think in retrospect that show was less about geography than it was a hidden effort to get young people to exercise.

We made nine-dozen Christmas cookies last evening for three school parties today, and it was a blast rolling the dough and cutting the shapes, icing them, putting on sprinkles, boxing them up, tying on ribbons, all while Christmas tunes played on YouTube and a fire merrily burned in the fireplace, and briefly on a baking sheet (the dog got that batch). Spine-distorting labor pains and countless hours walking the floor at two in the morning with fussy, teething babies is nothing compared to the good parts of parenthood, like last night, so remember that in days to come, Dark Alex (minus the labor pains in your case, I trust) and anyone else with impending new arrivals, it's all totally worth it, no question.

I am looking forward to experiencing it, although no doubt there will be many nights when I wonder why lol.

I don't think I will ever get tired of teaching high schoolers.  I love the random questions they ask!
During the middle of my U.S. History final, one junior blurted out:

"If a pregnant woman goes swimming underwater, doesn't she technically become a submarine?"

Well, one day after getting out of school for Christmas, our tree is finally up and the bulk of our shopping is done!
I even survived a Wal-Mart run four days before the big day relatively unharmed!

Gah, what is the point in making a movie of a book if you are going to completely change the story?

! No longer available Small | Large


There was also a sequel series called Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego?

! No longer available Small | Large


And a cartoon: Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego?

! No longer available Small | Large


Watched both game shows. Wasn't allowed to watch the cartoon till I was older, 10, 11. "Too violent," somehow.  Question

I don't know if anyone here has heard of the petition some upset Star Wars fans started to have The Last Jedi stricken from offical canon.

I think this is extremely foolish.

You'd have think they'd have learned by now that if they strike it down, it will only become more powerful than they could ever imagine.

Lawwwwsy, this place is extra-moribund today. Where are Dark Alex and Indy and RC and Trevor and the usual suspects hiding?

Here, I'll suggest a topic: that is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons, even death may die.

(Nothing like sacred scripture to stir the black heart, I find.)

Run with it...

Karma to Dark Alex for identifying that quote. That is Elvis, you are right.

Sorry I've been lurking rather than posting ER, but I've been spending time with my other family. I promise once I get home I'll post more. I am even thinking of posting a second review, this time for a picture none of you may have seen...
