Except for Grandma being here that pretty much sounds like a normal Saturday for me with a few minor changes.

Instead of Scooby Doo I watch DVD's of old WB cartoons and instead of Portland wrestling it is the WWF and I end up falling asleep watching a horror flick I got from Netflix.  {#Mrgreen}.
 
I just download everything now... I don't even have a TV anymore. Things do change.

Like the Ben Harper song, how I miss the good old days, but I'm so glad they're gone!
 
That must have sucked. I can see a definite generation... or maybe culture... gap here. I lived in a small town and people were generally kind to each other. My father was an alcoholic thought, and had a hard time dealing with things. So while my parents were working things out I spent most of my time with my grandmother, sheltered from the dark side of human nature.

I remember when Saturday used to mean something. I would await it with anticipation. Back then a day of waiting seemed like a lifetime... now it's a few ticks of the clock. My grandmother, who I spent most of my childhood with, would make an extra special breakfast of hotcakes, eggs, and sausage patties. After breakfast came several hours of Lego blocks and cartoons. Scooby Doo was my favorite. Once the shows I liked had ended I'd go outside to play. I never had many friends, mostly because my interests were strange, but that never bothered me back then. My mind was always active and I found endless ways to amuse myself. When Saturday night came I would watch Portland Wrestling with my my grandma, who would sit in an old green rocking chair, with a lap full of walnuts she was shelling, and occasionally raise her fist to the air saying, "punch him in the face!" It was a pretty funny thing to see, even to a 10 year old. Then I'd watch the Saturday night sci-fi/horror double-feature, and usually fall asleep part-way through the second one. Anyway, that was then. Nowadays Saturday is just another day.
