Of Sailor Men and Meddling Kids

Started off a kind-of-cloudy morning with a spinach omelet for breakfast while watching the newest Muppet Babies episode. Sam becomes the "Eagle In the Middle" when it's his turn to choose the show for their "Scribble Screen" time. Fozzie wants him to choose his favorite show "The Wacky Alpacas," but Gonzo insists on seeing "Zorna the Space Princess." They try to convince Sam to decide one way or the other, but Sam has his own ideas. Rizzo sees a show for big kids about a cool rat who gets involved in a hot rod race at an intergalactic diner, but "Rizzo's Space Race" is less fun when he insists on using his new hero's favorite insult a little too often.

Moved to Tubi for Scooby Doo & Scrappy while doing the dishes and getting organized for work. Shaggy and Scooby are yelling "Rocky Mountain Yiii" when they discover the ghost of an old miner who died after being caught in an avalanche while bringing government gold to Denver. Scrappy wishes his uncle would dig further into the snowdrifts and catch that criminal, while Velma's the one who finds the last clue and figures out what the ghost is after.

Scooby and Scrappy just ended when I got I ride to work. In fact, I got the rides there and home in less than 3 minutes. No trouble either way, no traffic on the road or in Oaklyn. 

Work was...more or less the same as yesterday. Even with a bagger calling out and a cashier leaving early, we still had a ton of help, for once. I spent almost the entire first half of my short shift shelving candy. It did pick up later in the day, and in fact, I was almost late because they kept pushing people in my line, even when I was trying to leave.

Went straight into grocery shopping after I finally finished. Found a container of popcorn on the clearance rack and two inexpensive tilapia fillets in the seafood department. Fresh pineapple and Bryers ice cream were on really good sales with online coupons, and brussels sprouts were cheap, too. Restocked grapes, bananas, butter, yogurt, milk, food storage bags, low-salt white beans, brown sugar, peanut butter, and cranberries.

Got my schedule, too. It's actually pretty similar to last week. Same hours, Monday and Tuesday off, only two bagging days this time. With most days later than 10 and two days off in a row, I might actually have the chance to get a lot of things done.

Put everything away when I got in while watching The Cat In the Hat Knows a Lot About That. Sally and Nick have trouble staying on the wooden beam in their backyard. The Cat takes them to visit his friend Zappa the Snow Leopard and see how he does his "Balancing Act" while leaping down steep cliffs. After Nick's "Marvelous Marbles" roll away, the Cat takes the kids to the beach, where they learn from his pirate friend Sharkey McGee how sand is turned into glass. 

Did some writing next. Betty orders Bill the White Rabbit and Duchess Marcia to lead the others to Looking Glass Land...or else, lose their heads (or at least get into trouble). Marcia's all for it, but Bill has to be practically thrown out the door. Orson and Gary the Doormouse volunteer as well. They want to find Charles.

Broke for baked tilapia with roasted Brussels sprouts and riced cauliflower medley for dinner. Watched Popeye while I ate. I go further into this 1980 adaptation of the beloved cartoon and comics character at my Musical Dreams Movie Reviews blog.
