It's not easy to juggle a pregnant wife and a troubled child, but somehow I managed to fit in 8 hours of TV a day.

Mr. Plow and Lisa's First Word were on today. We watched them both, adding up to an hour of television for the day.
I suspect that when the fall season starts in a few weeks, our tv viewing will increase exponentially.

Nothing really to remark on the episodes, except that Mr. Plow isn't all that amusing anymore. I've actually seen it so many times that I didn't laugh. Except during Homer's rap. "I got a big plow, and I can move a lot of things. Like a cow, if you had one..." Heh.

Lisa's First Word, on the other hand, was much funnier overall. Even though I've seen that episode probably as many times as Mr. Plow, it just had more laughs to it.

Lisa - "Remember, 'It is better to be silent and thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.'"
Homer's brain - "What does that mean? Better say something or they'll think you're stupid."
Homer - "Takes one to know one!"
Homer's brain - "Swish!!"

Krusty - "You people are pigs! I'm going to personally spit in every 50th burger."
Homer - "I like those odds."

And of course this episode brought us, "Can't sleep. Clown'll eat me."
A true classic.

If KTUD continues in order, that means tomorrow night will be my all time favorite (well, one of them, anyway) - Marge vs the Monorail. ...and I just checked, and yes, they are airing that episode tommorow night at 7:30pm. Sweet.

Total tv viewing for today - approx. 1 hour
Total tv viewing for the month - approx. 2 hrs. 58 minutes.

Mr. Plow is really less like a 4th season episode, and more like a 2nd season episode, you know?

I've decided that my favorite episode may be The Canine Mutiny. "Then why did I have the bowl, Bart? Why. did I have. the bowl?"

Oh, The Simpsons. H and I quote that out-of-sync "Mono- d'oh!" bit ALL THE TIME.
