A question for my readers.

I'm posting this from Droid, so bear with me.

Okay, I was going through a magazine and I saw a device for the iPad that was thirty dollars and would let the kid draw on it.

What ever happened to watercolour paints and sidewalk chalk or letting your kid get dirty?

I mean, it didn't hurt me any, and you can't put a iPad on your fridge.
So my question is,  when you/if you have/ plan on having kids, do you plan on going/ are going the technological route or are you doing things the let-em-get-dirty "old fashioned" route?

Let me know in the comments below or facebook/twitter.

Wow, I've been under a rock.

Now, this summer has been crappy for television. Falling Skies was mostly meh, True Blood was annoying, and Master Chef isn't finished yet. (Yes, I do watch reality TV shows, but only like three of them.)

So, I was browsing across Netflix, and somehow I haven't watched their newest series. (Orange is the New Black)

This is one of those prison drama shows, like Oz. It was a bit before my time, it had male nudity, and it was totally off the rails the last couple of seasons.

Now I guess it's an okay kind of show. It's not my cuppa, but it's got great dialogue. Anyhow I was watching it, and I realized, I knew that Russian.

It was Kate Mulgrew. She was awesome. I'm glad of this.

Now I've watched Voyager (yet another Netflix binge) and I HATED Katherine Janeway, absolutely hated her.

I didn't like Voyager either. It was probably the only series ((well the OS was crap too) There. I said it. Strip me of my geek cred.) Where I WANTED the ship destroyed.

Anyhow, after watching her portray the russian chef who could, I'm glad I found out it was the character.

That was my summer in television.
