Land of the Lost

Land of the Lost was a great show. Do you remember it? The Marshalls, the furry little monkey boy (was his name Rupret?), the Sleestacks. It's amazing how frightening the Sleestacks were even though they moved as if they had serious problems with piles (Itching! sss-shh-ss Burning! sss-shh-ss Swelling!).

That's what my son sounds like right now as he crawls around the house, a Sleestack. He moves around a little better than one, I suppose, though he's not walking yet. He's croupy, carrying around a pink string of beads that could have come right out of the Crystal Cave or off the Matrix table inside that aluminum teepee. Occasionally, he'll stop to bark like a seal. I don't think the Sleestacks ever did that. I'll have to speak to him about it.

Barking like a seal, huh? Cool!
I didn't see Land of the Lost. I guess I'm deprived.

Jamie! That post probably makes no sense whatsoever to you then. Bummer.

It didn't make any sense to me at all. I was just thinking that maybe you made it all up in that fertile mind of yours.
I'll ask my hubby if he's ever heard of it or seen it. If he hasn't heard of it, then I'm going to be very worried about your mental stability.

lol - Jamie, you wouldn't be the last.
