Confessional Tuesday on Wednesday

Do you know about this?

This cartoon, burdensomely entitled "My Little Pony Friendship is Magic" is about My Little Ponies and their Friendship, which is Magic.  It is totally sweet and pink and purple and musical and magical and all high-pitched voices and they have weddings where the guests are referred to as "Mares and Gentle-Colts." 

If you would like more details, please.  Ask someone else.

My 8-year-old is in love with this show.

(Inexplicably, so is a sizable portion of the youngish American male population.  They call themselves "Bronies."  You can learn about them on Youtube or Google.  I want to die.)

My daughter DVRs the show.  She DVRs it, and she watches it.  Over and over.  And over.  And over and over and over and over and over and over.  You get the idea.

I have watched the wedding of Twilight Sparkle's brother Shining Armor and Princess Cadence (Twilight Sparkle's old foal-sitter) so many times that I'm starting to think I'm seeing Rainbow Dash flying past my window during the day.  The first airing was this past Saturday.

That's four days ago.

I'm reminded of the time when Adventure Time, though amusing in small doses, took up roughly 83% of our DVR's saving capacity, thus encouraging countless hours of repeated viewings.

I think it's time for the DVR to "clear" itself again.
