How do you know you are an adult? When all the things you recall fondly from childhood have become well and truly destroyed, disappeared, or altered beyond recognition. That taste, ashes. Those tears, your fare to Charon that keeps the Styx flowing - did you really think the poor would be denied their passage beyond for something so petty? Not so - greed belongs to us, the mortal sons of dirt. Even the cruelest of the great ones has more compassion that that.
When the trumpet's note rings sour; when the path to your favorite grove is overgrown, or worse, heavy with ox-rut; when the strangers you ask know neither the names of your former haunts nor those of your bosom companions, then you must accept your youth is dead.

I propose that you are an adult when Google spends a week celebrating the fortieth anniversary of the first TV show you ever watched.

Also a good marker, yeah.
Actually, I was sort of trying to see if I had any Nanowrimoing in me this year, a bit, and forgot to set the 'lets not make this totally public' bit.
On the other hand, I really loved the Cookie Monster Google doodle, it made me feel more warm and fuzzy than I have in a long time.
I'm glad you didn't set it to private. The mood it evoked was... enjoyable isn't the word, but in any case, I really liked reading it.
I didn't think I would get used to last season's Sesame street, but after watching each episode, like 5 times, it replaced my vague memories. I just saw the new season today, and although it's way different, I think maybe after 20 repetitions last season will fade into memory also.
I heard one of the producers say on NPR that the CGI scenes tested just as high as the puppet scenes, but Derek seemed to not care at all about the CGI scenes. He only really seems to pay attention (if at all) to the puppet scenes.
I've been watching a lot of wheel of fortune lately too because of Derek. Then old ones because of my grandmother. Less has changed there.
