Box Set Dilemma -- And More Fraggles!

Those of you reading this thing semi-regularly may be aware of my recent run-in with Fraggle Rock related issues. If not, click here and here for a refresher. Seems I can 't get away from the little buggers now. And to make matters worse, I just learned of a GARGANTUAN box set release of the entire show on DVD!

That's 20 discs of Fraggle mayhem, folks! I mean, my god, how tempting *is* this? And it's not really that bad of a price for such a huge haul -- only 90 bucks on I want so badly to ask for this for Christmas, but there are so many box sets that, to my chagrin, I've also discovered on Amazon.

Haha, no. I wish I could, but I can't. If I really, really could only choose one . . . I'd have to go with my buddy, the Dark Knight.

Yeah, that's what I'll do.

    You wouldn't by chance be a gamer?... would you?

  2. Decisions, decisions! Being a real consumer is hard work man! People just don't know!

  3. Kim, you know I am! I'm a huge gamer, playing mostly games on the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 right now. But I've been gaming since the early 80s when I was just 6 years old.

    Right now I'm playing Fallout 3 and getting ready for Gears of War 2 tomorrow. I'm pretty sure your sons know about those games. :)


Panama Trip - Day 1: Here There Be Balboas!

In late May, 2017 I embarked on a trip of a lifetime. A trip to Panama's steamy tropical province, Bocas del Toro. Now, before 2017 ...
