My Matt Groening Life

And no, I don't mean "The Simpsons" or "Futurama" - more like "Life in Hell".

This has been a very busy week for me - providing testimony for some city council meetings in the county, being election commissioner for a very contentious local election, trying to catch up on work, attending a SIDS health fair, feeling overworked, underpaid, and tired...but it was Wednesday night, at Chesterfield Mall, killing time before a meeting, when I realized that I really was in hell. Nothing could prepare me for the worst, for this soul-searing revelation.

Punky Brewster is out on CD...and you can buy it at Suncoast.

What sick, twisted mind devised this idea? What corner of freshly fallen hell did this individual come out of who thought this was smart? Punky Brewster is about this annoying little kid, her doddering old grandpa, and (I believe) a little robot monkey. The only thing worse than Punky Brewster is Small Wonder, where it's about an annoying little kid, his doddering dad, and a robot girl, and they fight crime, or something.

Right now, the best thing would be an all-expense paid trip to some exotic island where I can be pampered, catered to, and generally gain an ego reboost.

I watched Small Wonder like crazy when I was a kid. I believe it was not a network show - my sis and I used to watch it on Sunday afternoon/ early evenings before the prime time hours, and it seems the airing time was often pre-empted.

I may be wrong about this, but I believe Small Wonder was very popular in India for a while.

Punky, punky, punky... I'll save that for another time...
