Unplugging from the Stream

Questions tonight are …
What was the apartment or house like that you grew up in? How many bedrooms did it have? Bathrooms? What was your bedroom like?

My answers to the night before last’s questions
What cartoons did you watch/like best growing up? Were Saturday morning cartoons your favorite part of the week?

As I mentioned last night, last Saturday was the end of an era, and the first week since about forever ago that the main networks didn’t show cartoons on Saturday morning.

I used to get up ridiculously early on Saturday mornings to catch Casper.  He came on at 6:30 or 7:30am, and if I got up too early, then I had an interminable wait staring at the fuzzy screen until the channel came alive 15 minutes before.  I watched the Superfriends at 11:30am (not sure why that stuck), The New Schmoo was on at 10L00am, I think, and there was Johnny Quest, Scooby Do, and Hong King Phooey, and Bugs Bunny, and Land of the Lost (not a cartoon, but c’mon), The Pink Panther, Underdog, H.R. Puffinstuff  (yes, I am admitting this publicly), The Jetsons, Mr. Magoo, Shazam, Sigmund and the Seamonster, Captain Caveman, that thing with Lamb Chop … whew … this is NOT an exhaustive list … but man – that was the highlight of my week to get to watch all of these, and sometimes I would flip back and forth because I couldn’t decide which one to watch.

When I was a little older I watched G-force, Speed Racer, Two Stupid Dogs, and many more, and my all-time favorite was Underdog when I was little, and later on The Tick 😀

I took a marathon nap again today,  although much shorter than yesterday.  I am definitely splitting my days up with a long nap, work, another long nap, homework/posts/stuff around the house. I was incredibly productive at work today, and that always feels good.  I struggled, however, with my homework assignment, and I was two minutes late with it   My freaking internet went out again, and the 5 minutes that I had to spend getting that back up and running literally put me 2 minutes over the deadline.  Grrrr

Yeah, I know that I shouldn’t be cutting it so close, but dangit – I had it ready to submit and the connection dropped.  How do you plan ahead for shit like that?

… gonna end up throwing the stupid eggs away …

Today is now day 20 (YAY!!!) of my favorite month which culminates, as I’ve mentioned many, many times now, in my favorite holiday of Halloween, and my next Halloween themed ANIMATED photo can be seen below …

I stopped to snap this on the way home, and then I kept not being happy with the processing, so I tried again, and again, and again until I had seven versions.  At that point I couldn’t decide which one I liked best, so I just animated the lot, and shared them all 🙂 Turns out that those don’t work here, so I changed to the static images …

Have a great night, fellow Pressers, and many sweet dreams 🙂
