It's World Puppetry Day today.


I'm going to go hide in a closet now until the day is over.

Can you check on my clown puppets while you're in there?


Won't the one on the far right get in trouble for appearing in white face?

Possibly...by the one on the far left.  :rimshot:

I was reading some samples of some of the old Babar books last night on Amazon and... there was something really sad in one of them and i just started crying. It was so heart-breaking. I don't want to say what it is or how it was staged, but all I can say is that I still have a really damn fragile ego and maybe too soft of a heart.

We pulled that Babar book off the shelf to read to our son, and put it right back on the shelf.

Right now, I don't know if I can make it until Caleb gets back on Tuesday. I'm so absolutely sick of being alone.

Hey I know how that feels. If it's really bad, don't stay in your room, hang around your family. I don't know how your relationship is with them, but it's worth a try, especially when things look and feel so particularly bleak. Do whatever you have to. Call up a friend if you need to.

I like Netflix.  It's cheaper than Amazon.  about 8 bucks a month, for all you can watch.   It doesn't lag, doesn't have advertisements and is always high resolution, full screen.

We don't have any other comparable option.

Welcome to the 21st century, Australia.

I'm curious if our poor internet will be able to keep up with it...

If you have 3 to 4 Mbps you can get the most compressed HD streams, to get superHD you need at least 6 Mbps.

Again, I know I'm biased and I am not playing salesman here. But I'd like to point out:

Netflix $7.99/month - streaming video
Prime $99/year ($8.25/month) - comes with the streaming video service, plus a streaming music service, plus free 2 day shipping on retail items.

Prices are pretty comparable taking that other stuff into account. Billing for Amazon is just done for the year as opposed to the month. Though if you cancel Prime, they will refund most, if not all, of the $99.

Can't wait till we get Amazon here. Australia is doing everything it can to make online shopping not take off.
