Who else thinks "Karen" is a humorous idea??

It's true: I am one of those rare moms that allows my kids to watch Spongebob. I know many parents find it to be rude, crude and full of sarcasm (and it is), but that higher level of humor is still above Grant's maturity level, so we watch it. I realize the day will soon come when we probably should not anymore, but until then, I'm laughing it up because let's be honest: Spongebob is a breath of fresh air for all of us moms out there whose worlds are filled with dirty diapers, stained laundry and lots of never ending "baby noise stuff". (this would include the annoying shows/videos kids watch over and over again, the annoying noises their toys make, etc)

Anywho, to get to my point that I meant to get to a long time ago: Does anyone else get a kick out of Plankton's wife being a computer whose name is Karen?!!! How funny and random is that!? Those little comments he makes to and about her are soooooooooo funny, such as, "Karen, my computer wife..." and, "I knew I should not have installed that new voice software..." You won't be hearing anything like that on the Backyardigans!

The Golden Girls

Estelle Getty, the "mother" known as Sophia on the Golden Girls died this morning at the age of 84 from advanced dementia. I'm a little bummed because she is certainly one of my favorite TV actresses, and I am sad that the Golden Girls are truly coming to an end.

No worries though - I have every season on DVD, so I can enjoy them whenever I want!

Thanks, Estelle, for your great one liners that made us laugh!
