There's a place for people who laugh at nothing...

Had a wonderful time at the home of our friends who moved here a few years ago from Chicago. We had a more-or-less traditional Christmas Eve meatless meal, then watched this show, which provided a much-needed dose of nostalgia. If you want to know one of the many, many, many reasons that I'm so weird, and you get WGN from Chicago on your cable or satellite, it shows again at 3 PM ET tomorrow. I'm going to see if I can get it on DVD.

Speaking of TV schedules, I set up the VCR to tape my friend (I spoke of her here) on the CBS Morning show, and somehow ended up with a rather bizarre cartoon and no Helen. Then I realized that we get CBS on an affiliate, who can shuffle and play the programs pretty much at will. Oh, well...did anyone see it?

Mary and I are going to celebrate Christmas like we always do: we've been to early Mass and to our friends' house, now we're going to fall asleep watching the Pope celebrate Midnight Mass at the Vatican (by tape delay, obviously, since it's already happened). Tomorrow, we'll spend the day reading, napping, doing whatever, although I'm almost certain that Law and Order or one of its mutations will be a big part of it. DONGDONG! I may get here to do an update tomorrow, or maybe not until Monday.

Merry Christmas!

Just HAD to tell you- I was ON the Bozo show in the 60's! My Brownie troop in Florida went to the show. Memories, ahhh...I remember we had to eat crackers and try to whistle. I remember him stopping at me for the winner of the treasure chest, then moving his hand one person to my right, and so I wasn't the winner. Boohoo. Maybe that's why I am so messed up now. Hahaa!

No Mister smarty pants! You know there was more than one Bozo, right? And you DO know about the tooth fairy, right? Hahaha. After you said that, I doubted myself, that maybe my memory was faulty. But I was SURE I had gone, and that it was in Florida. So I googled it, and found out myself for the first time that there was more than one Bozo. Ha, thanks for making me learn something new!

Bozo was a franchise that built up around the cartoons and records (on Capitol), so there were lots of Bozos. It was just that the one in Chicago got the most attention, probably because it ran the longest.

See? This blog tries to be educational as well as fun.
