    The puppets were too creepy. I loved it when he visited factories and farms. And sang. I still love hearing 'real people' sing, bumps and all.

    Two of of my favorite episodes point to who I am today: the one where he teaches some basic recipes, and the bridge episode.

    In honor of Mr. Rogers, for a 10th grade history project I dressed up in a green cardigan, threw my shoe, and performed the French Revolution with puppets before my teacher Mr. Pervert and three dozen horrified students.

    No, Young Gay Panda was not cool.

    Come to think of it, it was my lefty grandfather that pointed out that Mr. Rogers was a lefty too, just like us. Where I heard of his death, I dug out the only cardigan I owned at that point (a god awful handkint olive and orange monstrosity made by my granny) and wore to school that day, in honor of him. So did half my school (I went to a school for freaks, geeks, and nerds, what can I say?)

    eta: Upon further research, grampa lied to me! Mr. Rogers isn't a lefty. My childhood memories... ruined. Just like Sad Kermit and any number of other things that disabused me of my happy tv memories growing up.

    I would have thought Young Gay Panda was awesome for doing so, but I went to a fine and performing arts high school filled with geeky, artsy nerds who did things like play Mission Impossible with finger "guns" through the downtown shopping malls and did the Monkees walk down the school hallways while singing the Imperial March.

    Did you ever live in TX? Because you could easily be describing my HS. It was a school for freaks, geeks, and nerds. We had no football team, but our robotics and CS teams would kick your ass with an ass kicking battle bot or an ass- kicking virus.

    Nope, although Alberta does strongly resemble Texas in some ways, I most definitely grew up north of the 49th parallel. My school was more arts oriented but had a similar style of completely outside the norm behaviour on the part of the student population (and most of the teachers too).

    Where was that nerd/geek/freak high school for me when I needed it! Owly and naiadknight, you were so lucky!

    Oh, if only we'd had a robotics team at my HS . . .

    Owly - Did you go to Vic? We just applied for my eldest daughter to go there. She's currently having problems "fitting in" at her current school, even her friends are distancing themselves from her a bit. They don't like her hair colour, nose-piercing, etc.

    Sorry folks - carry on.
    There are two wolves fighting within a man's heart, one is Love, the other is Hate. The one that wins is the one you feed.

    My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. - Jack Layton

    The Primal Adventures of Griffin - Huzzah!
