Ask Poops, Please

Putting my two cents in.

Born and bred in a small New England town, I am convinced that I know something about everything, and that my opinion matters. If only to me. Well, you'll see what I mean. And I love to knit, so you'll see what kind of things I'm doing when I should be vacuuming the living room.

Ten Hours I'll Never Get Back

Okay, has anyone else been watching the History Channel documentary series "Ten Days That Unexpectedly Changed America"? I'm hooked on it. I thought the episode about the Pequot Indian tribe was so interesting that I actually put my knitting down and watched it. Perhaps that extra bit of interest was because we live three hours from the Mashantucket Reservation, home of Foxwoods Casino. My mother-in-law is on a personal crusade to make reparations via the slots.

I find history fascinating to begin with and usually stay up way too late watching interesting documentaries. It explains why I know a little about a lot of things. But when I think of all the other productive uses of ten hours...well, let's try not to think about it, okay?

My favorites are the Bible documentaries. Any Bible documentaries. Old or New Testament, I don't care. Based in faith or made-up bunk, I love it all. Last night there was one about the Ten Commandments . I'm probably going to miss part 2 of this one because I doubt we'll be out of mass by 8. If regular masses take an hour and a half, I'm betting on two for Holy Thursday. Just a guess though.

Which is just God's way of telling me that I should have Tivo.
