Tidings Terrific Television Tune-in’ers!
(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “T”)
Were you disappointed to see The Simpsons off for four weeks? Did you enjoy the last episode? How did it fare for a Marge and recreational drugs episode? Can’t wait for another new Simpsons episode? Well you won’t have to wait too long for the next such episode as The Simpsons is back this Sunday, with an all new episode! Woohoo!
So here’s your official TSTO Addicts reminder…all new episode, the season’s eighteenth episode, this Sunday, April 19th, 8pm on FOX (at the same time on City TV in Canada)….“The Incredible Lightness of Being a Baby”!
So what do The Simpsons have in store for us this week?
Thank Grog It’s Firday!
Although…Firday doesn’t feel a whole lot different than Mernday. So much for retirement. All of my “casual clients” in my “semi-retirement” mode, have all been in a state of crazy PIVOT mode…along with all of my volunteer work, and more Zoom hours than any human should have to endure. I have a zillion balls in the air…and they are all on fire.
I found the last bit of this update, horribly ironic. There is nothing like a dialogue about cheating in baseball, when we are being cheated OUT of baseball! One of the things I loved the most about Baseball, was the lack of overt cheating (spitballs and corked bats don’t count). But, like so many other things…technology has sullied the game I once loved.
Of course the bit about the Isotopes was a thinly veiled reference to the horrendous Astros scandal. It was funny…mostly… But, it made me think of so many other cheaters in the world.
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Sitting at home on a Saturday? Bored out of your gourd at the quarantine? Have a little fun with LEGO!
Riley and I just started this LEGO challenge using her Duplo blocks…
A different LEGO build for every day, something for kids and adults alike…provided you have the LEGOs of course!
We just started this today, so day 1 was to build a new Roller Coaster, and here’s Riley’s creation…
Not too shabby for a four-year-old!
So if you’re looking for something fun to do today, and every day for the next 30 days, consider the LEGO challenge! It’s a lot of fun and sparks some creativity! And if you do the challenge please share your builds in the comments below!
Thank Grog It’s Firday!
I have to admit, that I really didn’t think anything would get weirder than last week. But, of course, I was wrong. I have been playing the update in “REAL TIME” which is really weird, because “real time” in lock-down mode feels surreal.
But of course, I’m sure there is virtually nobody reading this who isn’t in the exact same predicament. Playing in real time just makes the weird dialogue excruciating. I hate it when the writers have Marge and Homer fight, separate, and almost divorce.
But, from what I am reading, this “Stay At Home” order we are under in most states (that actually have common sense) are predicted to see two rising statistics. One in the number of births in nine months, the other in the number of divorces. If absence makes the heart grow fonder, the opposite apparently could mess with other body parts. So…like most things…when thrown together unexpectedly, you just don’t know if it will bring you closer together, or further apart. Or together, apart, together, apart. together…you know what I mean.
My lovely bride of 38 years and I had exactly one of these situations this past week… It was serious. It was dire. And required me to test the limits of sanity in the wee hours of the morning!
Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Every day more and more of parts the world are joining the global time out to stop the spread of COVID-19. An effort to “flatten the curve”. And, much like school days, we all have to sit in this time out until EVERYONE listens! So the longer people gather in large groups, the longer the time out is going to last.
That all being said, now that we have more folks joining the US in the “time out”, I thought we’d take a break from what’s currently going on to talk about what we can’t wait to do when this is all over. So here are the things the Addicts crew can’t wait to do when this is all over…
