The Simpsons. Remember the controversy when The Simpsons first came on the air? It was a cartoon with too much bad humor. The kid was a punk, the adults were dumb, and the references were too sarcastic. Apparently America could relate. As a teenage kid, I could relate well with Bart. I was not much of a rebel myself, but I lived vicariously through the "Eat my shorts" antics of Bart and the "so intelligent I'm misunderstood" situations that Lisa had to endure. My favorite character was Homer, but my favorite secondary character was Ralph. He was so hilariously naive. Incidentally, Nelson the bully was one of my least favorite.

It's another Disney tie. Naughty and Nice. I was always nice before Christmas, weren't you? I might of harassed my big sister, annoyed my parents, and bullied my little brother -BUT, that one good deed of cleaning my room had to offset all of that. IT HAD TO! Come on Santa, please understand.
Someone's little girl is lobbying for the nice side.
She has been meeting with Mrs. Fortkamp and two other first graders twice a week afterschool. Alea always has fun and always has some interesting stories to bring home. Today she brought home something tasty. I love the note, it added so much. The best part is the half of cookie. You can start to see the Naughty peeking through now, can't you? This is from the little princess that picks up the M & M from the floor and says, "Joshua gets this one." Need more evidence? This last one, I laughed at for hours and still chuckle as I write. This particular transcript reads,
"Josh wants dipeers (diapers). I like Michell (Mitchell). Dad and Mom are spical to me. Josh Dus to. Dad is a Dorywck."
The fact that she writes "Dork" exactly as she pronounces it, is especially hilarious. She's such an odd child... I'm not sure the cookies are enough to override these malevolent deeds. Except that even if I was to give her a rock for Christmas, she'd love it -probably just to spite me : )
