No TV … Day Three

Posted in Food, Nonsense, Tori with tags , , , , on February 21, 2012 by Bob

And hopefully the last. I am not saying I am addicted to TV … but I think I am addicted to TV. While it has been a good few nights without the box blaring in the background, or the foreground, I am finding that me not having something to draw my attention is a bad thing for one main reason. Tori. I never ignore her, in fact I play with her all the time when the TV is going. The problem is, without the TV grabbing at least some of my attention, I find various ways to amuse myself at her expense. Last night, it entailed giving her a piece of spaghetti. Someone told me to give her that and now I know why. OH EM GEE! She was soooo cute. At first, she couldn’t figure out how to get it in her mouth since it kept sliding out. Then, she got frustrated with that and decided it was what she calls “pretties”. That is jewelry to her. She tried to wear it like a necklace. I finally broke it into smaller bites for her after I felt she suffered enough. I would have taken video of it to share but a) I was laughing too damn hard b) I was cooking and cooking and laughing that hard can be rather dangerous, at least for me.

Tonight, my amusement consisted of making the little parrot and myna bird go through a myriad of songs, dances, recitations and otherwise cute stuff. We do have some on video but I will have to see if Mrs. Voices will let herself be on video published to tens of people, and I have to see how goofy I sound. I heard her showing Tori a video earlier and my voice is just AWFUL! Strange that I want to do voices for a living huh? Maybe that is why I do so many because I think my real voice is comical in itself.

Anyhoo, the little middle voice has gone to bed, we are eating our Paczkis and I will be getting the spreadsheet out tomorrow to figure out how much in therapy for Tori this no tv thing is going to cost me.

No TV … Day Two

Posted in Nonsense with tags , , , on February 20, 2012 by Bob

We are surviving! I came home tonight and with no distractions, other than Tori wanting to help me cook, I was able to make dinner and we ate at a reasonable time. Eggplant parm ala Bob. It was good. Pretty healthy too with no breading. That is not the point though. We ate, played with Tori, put her to bed and now … we are going up to the bedroom to do something we haven’t done in a long time. We are both going to read a book. Not sure what I am going to read yet. I have a few on the shelf. I will decide when I get there. Mrs. Voices will probably read some book in this series she reads that seem to take all of the titles from spaghetti westerns like “Outlaw Demon Wales”, “Pale Demon”, etc. So night all!
