serendipity

Is reading criticisms of the new X-Men movie (which I have just about decided not to see) while the Pip watches the Backyardigans episode where Tyrone, as a tour guide, admonishes a bunch of folks in costumes for not being useful: "You're superheroes, for goodness' sake!"

And now Chad is up and I go back to bed, as is our weekend morning tradition.

I actually kind of miss the Backyardigans. Cordelia used to love that show, and it had something for adults, too. It was much better than a lot of the other options.

We bought several of the CDs, too. For a brief time, they were good for listening to in the car. (The other car listening was Sandra Boynton's Philadelphia Chickens which I highly recommend.)

To be entirely fair to the X-Men, they do end up providing, however unintentionally, plenty of work for National Park Service workers and construction people. So, you know, useful! Also at the end of the film Marvel and Fox cheerfully remind you that the film provided jobs for 15,000 people.
