Fiery Doom Girl: "Daddy, can I watch TV?  I want Dora."

check satellite menu - no Dora on kids' list of channels. Not now, not in the next hour.  K.  Handy Mannny looks good.

FDG: *pokepoke* "Daddy, Mickey Mouse is one.  I don't want Mickey Mouse.  I want Dora."
Me: "Sorry, punkin pie, there's no Dora."
FDG: Yes, there is!" *sleevetug*

okay, no mouse today.  Kids' list says -- Dora for the next hour-and-a-half on the YouShouldHaveSeenItEarlier Channel.   Fine.

*click*

Television: "Where does Dora have to go next?  ...  To the Big Mountain!"

whew.  another crisis solved.

FDG:  I don't want that one.  I want Dora to go to the beach!  *pause for internal monologue* *nodnod*  "Yes.  That's what I want."

Y'know, folks, in my day, we went where TV told us to go.  We didn't argue with TV.  And we were grateful.

I just found this on teh intarwebz:

"A training project was established in 1996 under a European Union grant-aided scheme to guarantee the future of Galway hookers ... The Galway Hooker Association actively sought to sustain the promotion of this small but not insignificant industry. "

I'm just sayin'.  they have more respect for their seamen than we do.

We are not happy.  We are, however, violently unwell.
