Happy New Year

We had planned to watch a movie last night, but SciFi's Twilight Zone Marathon sucked us in and we ended up watching many episodes of classic Rod Serling entertainment. When I was a kid, I had a book of original stories that became Twilight Zone episodes. I've tried to catch as many shows as possible that I can remember from the book. So far I've seen "I Sing the Body Electric," by Ray Bradbury, "The Mighty Casey," "Little Girl Lost," and "A Stop at Willoughby," though I missed "Third from the Sun," one of my favorite stories. But there are more than 12 hours of episodes yet, with many other gems to come. "Elegy," "To Serve Man," "The Eye of the Beholder," just to name a few.

Meanwhile, there is football, but so far most of the games stink. I am looking forward to the Rose Bowl in about an hour, but that's the only game I'm interested in today. I'm planning my weekend around the NFL playoffs instead.
