Tele Bird meets Bookworm. Part the fifth.
...but in this meeting of minds Bookworm comes out the winner.
This tales moral, if you want to be well fed,
TV in moderation and try and be well read.
Now I'm the last person to find fault with TV as a whole (you should see my TV shows DVD shelf...) but without sounding too opinionated there has been a greater deal of tossycock on the box of late! Reading seems so much more consistant (if you pick the right books that is (the only thing I have more of than DVD's is books...!). At least with less to tempt on TV it's easier to put in the hours on the blog.
After just finishing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (in my epic rereading of all the Dahl's) I realise I have been treading the same ground with these last few posts as the Mike Teavee Oompa-Loompa song. The more I blog stuff out the more I realise how the influences from my childhood are seeping out. Makes you see just how important children's literature is on malleable little minds! Hope I haven't sounded to preachy. Just a bit of fun.
