Ducks Lossday -- Another game I probably won't watch

Anaheim Calling and Five For Howling -- two blogs blessed with their non-hires of Carlyle.

I really don't have much to say on Anaheim's most recent play -- thanks to bottomed-out expectations, smart-phone score updates, and walk-in-the-door DVR deletions I have seen almost nothing of 3 of the past 4 Ducks losses.  I know that Honda Center has had long power delays the past two games, but I haven't watched or waited through any of that.  And I'll be at a Thanksgiving Eve service when the puck drops tonight -- it seems almost a sure thing that I'll come home and delete tonight's recording without watching it as well.  Thanks in advance, Carlyle!

I'll just recycle cartoons up to the point where I do watch the Ducks play a game.

But hey, it's not like I'm not learning anything this week.  Remember when I told you about my 4-year-old nephew and my 1-year-old niece?  It turns out I was inflating each of their ages by 33% -- the kids are only 3 years and 9 months, respectively.  Whoops!

Still, despite not remembering kids' ages, I am once again turning out to be a rather solid uncle.  On Tuesday I went with the kids to Pretend City, a toddler's learning paradise.  Then I spent yesterday battling my way through the madhouse known as Disneyland, my first time there since 1995 (!).  And the kids loved it -- thank goodness they're not emotionally affected by the on-ice antics of idiots.

Prediction: The score sucks; I delete the recording.  But the kids have an awesome day.

Fire Carlyle.
