My daughter of 8 years has been watching Zoey 101 on TV. I have watched it with her (trying to stay as macho as I can) and have found the show to be clean so we have let her watch. For Christmas I gathered up all of the manly courage I could and walked into a Clair's store to buy her a Zoey 101 Key Necklace. I thought it would be a great stocking stuffer. After this news about Zoey (Jamie Sears), we are no longer allowing are daughter to watch the TV show and we are taking the Key Necklace back to Clair's.
I will bet that Nickelodeon will continue to air Zoey 101 without any regrets. I have heard that they have the whole next season already filmed so it would cost them a lot of money that they have already invested in the program to shut it down now, or to even bring in a new Zoey character. This is all around bad news.
I'm sure glad that I don't have a teenage movie or TV star. It seems that early fame and fortune ruins peoples lives. I guess I'm glad to be living in Po Dunk Idaho working as a computer geek with a mediocre house at the end of a cul-da-sac.

Hummm, is it spell Kindergarten or Kindergarden? Well, it look like the "T" version wins as far as my spell checker is concerned. It will always be a garden for me.
Anyway, little Katie had a Christmas program yesterday. She was very cute but a little sick. She only smiled when she had to. Here are some pics.
Also, I heard something interesting when I was watching Cranky Geeks the other night. They were talking about writers and that there are a lot of people out there that want to be writers. One of the "writers" talking about the subject said that anyone can be a writer, all you have to do is start writing. In fact, he said, if you can write 300 words per day, in one year you could have a full novel. Well, I decided to take him up on that idea and try and write 300 words each day. Well, I didn't get very far. I started writing and found my self writing about writing 300 words. It won't make much of a novel. I have decided after one full day of being a writer, that I am a terrible writer and I should just stick with fixing computers.
For a copy of my first page as a writer, please click this link. It is really horrible so unless you have a good 15 minutes to waste, please don't read it.

Ok, this post is a little "out there" but I thought I would share a couple of my favorite Home Star Runner episodes. Those of you that don't know anything about Home Star Runner, sorry, I really can't help you. You will just have to watch the three episodes that I have posted. It is a little childish but it is hilarious. You need to be in a goofy mood to watch them so don't watch them while at work, watch them at 1:30am after watching the full version of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail".
