It's conclusive

It's been clear to me for sometime that I need to get a life; it's probably been clear to you for longer. By 'get a life', I mean a proper one. When asked if I've seen anything good lately I should be able to describe the nuances of French cinema, not the interplay between Peppa and George. When I stay up to 2AM, I should be dancing or drinking margaritas, not tracing or serging. I think the clincher for me was a couple of weeks ago, when the first thing I said to Steven after he came home from work was, 'Listen, I think that they've changed the girl who does the voice of Dora!'. The shame.

And now, even Ebay is mocking me. Look at their choices for 'Cool stuff' for me:

Lots and lots of different rolls of paper for tracing. How very rock and roll.

  2. Yep, sad. I can tell in an instant when they change to a new Charlie or Lola (I think we're on no. 4 now?).

  3. You are right about Dora. They did switch to a new voice for this year's new episodes.

    I hate Dora.

  4. They changed the voice of Dora?!

    I know they changed Peppa's voice, but to change the voice of Dora ...

    ... mutter, mutter, shakes head.

    What do you mean "get a life" - sounds pretty much the same as mine if you ask me!

    (my word verification is "pally". Is blogger trying to tell me something?)

  6. It was when they changed the voices in Lazy Town that I got confused. We have all the Dora and Charlie and Lola stuff on the Apple TV in our house so the kids can watch it on demand. They watch episodes from different seasons back to back, which can get a touch confusing when you pay attention to the change of voice.

  7. I'm worse. I'm a shameful watcher of Neighbours, but accidentally caught the end of Home and Away without realising it wasn't Neighbours. (still with me?) I called out to my husband "that blind girl's got her sight back, don't know who she's with though."

    What's worse, he actually came into the room to investigate.

  8. It's crazy how much being a mom changes your whole world. And doesn't drinking and dancing until 2 am sound likethe beginning to worst next day ever?

  9. mm hey well, I noticed that certain programmes originally had American accents for the grandchildren at the beginning and end, and that they morphed somehow halfway through the first series into London Middleclass accents... but their mother had a very South Country accent. (Jakers, if you're interested). And I used this as a conversation starter with a (childless)friend. Now I really know I have no life.

    PS those bags? someone has to sell them, so someone else thinks they're cool, other than ebay.

  10. And... you know you've been watching too much kids tv when you start wondering when Bob and Wendy are going to get it on, and decide that one of the female characters is hitting on Wendy... not that I can remember who it was but I was convinced.

  11. Real life is over-rated, as is French cinema and drinking and dancing til 2am. This is what I keep telling myself whilst watching Teletubbies at 6.15am and realising today's episode is a repeat, and that I first saw it as a student with a hangover wrapped in a duvet :(
    And Vintage Violet is right, Dora is FAR TOO SHOUTY *and* her voice goes up at the end of every sentence....

  12. That is quite sad, but you are not alone, I remember been obsessed by the tweenie voices, I was sure bella's voice changed and that jake was mr tumble, I even investigated on the web.
