Dave!I woke up to find that I have no Internet. What am I supposed to do now? What's going on in the world? I suppose that I shouldn't complain... in the four years I've had DSL this is only the second time it's gone down. But it does mess up my daily routine in a way that I'm not quite ready for. I wonder what's on television this morning?

Gah! I should have never looked! Morning television is crap! You know this is true when the most interesting thing on in the 100 channels I receive is Little House on the Prairie.

And speaking of Little House, what in the heck happened to that show? I was never a big fan... boring people in a boring place doing boring things in a boring time just doesn't appeal to me (Oh no! Laura lied to Ma and Pa! The humanity!). This morning I find out that things on the Prairie certainly have changed since I last bothered to watch all those years ago. Laura got married, her sister Mary is blind and married and running a school for blind children, somehow they have a brother named Albert (I thought they had a younger sister named Carrie?), and Nellie is married and no longer a bitch.

There were two episodes back-to-back, but there were from different seasons of the show which was confusing. I flicked back-and forth through the first episode, but watched the second. How could I not? Pa is living in the city(!) and his son(?) Albert is in a gang and addicted to morphine? Cool! It's like a really, really clean version of Trainspotting or something!

I've never been so relieved to go to work in my entire life. I hope my DSL is fixed tomorrow morning.

    From what I remember, I’m pretty sure Albert was adopted, or taken in. Laura married “Manly” (aka Almanzo Wilder) and Mary eventually married another blind person named Adam who was a teacher at the school for the blind. I should go back and read those books again.

    I used to watch that show. It went for like ten years! I don’t remember much about the later years (although we saw half an epidose while we were over there recently), but I do vividly remember the school for the blind burning down.

  3. Michelle says:

    And Laura stealing Nellie’s music box. Tut tut.

  4. Dave2 says:

    Gah! The school for the blind burned down?!? Wasn’t making her blind sad enough? What kind of sadistic monsters are the writers for that show? I just Googled it, and found out it ran for NINE seasons and had three specials (and they blew up the town in the last one!).

  5. Dave2 says:

    If only Laura were stealing the music box so that she could pawn it to her pimp for some crack and an abortion… THEN I would have watched! What is it about depravity that makes my voyeuristic nature take over an otherwise rational mind?
