Jack’s back, and I’m waiting for my daughter to turn over the Windows Media Center PC. I watched 17 nail-biting minutes of “24” before relinquishing the Media Center so that she could watch (again) movie “Castle in the Sky“, which I recorded the other night on Turner Movie Classics. I’ve got to say that a Xbox 360 would come in handy right about now to stream her movie to the TV in her bedroom.

Best running commentary on “24” episodes goes to Dave Barry. And his humor is sharp as tacks tonight as in real time he pokes at every nail-biting twist and turn. I highly recommend Dave’s blog. By the way, Internet Explorer 7’s security features warn that Dave Barry’s blog is a “Suspicious Website”. Ha. How true! 

I guess I’ll clean the rabbits’ cages while I wait for the Media Center. The tension is killing me. When last I watched, Palmer was dead, Michelle was dead, Tony was near dead, Chloe was soon to be dead, and Jack was about to come back from the dead. And I just know there is some plot-twisting dead end coming dead ahead.

The sacrifices we make for our kids.
