What happens if you can't pay, do you have to take it back?

There's a whole book of related pictures. Little Miss P has the book and it was one of my favourites to read to her when she was 3-5 years old.

My daughter and I have been watching Spongebob daily for weeks now. She has commandeered the living room TV for her recordings and I must stay to operate the remote. Every time I see your avatar it reminds me of my evenings of servitude.

Luckily, I do actually like the show as well

Might I suggest an excursion to Paulton's theme park in Hampshire when you're back in the UK in April.

I moved on to Peppa after exhausting all of the SpongeBob seasons (multiple times). The best thing about SpongeBob are the physics employed. If you try to think about it it makes your brain bleed.

Too far away, unfortunately. Wonder if my Sister wants to go.

She loves Peppa too. She has a rotation of shows that she likes to watch but usually it's one-at-a-time for a few weeks each. Spongebob was just a new addition to the list.

Our DVR, other than a few reserve episodes of Top Gear and the Walking Dead, which I have just got into and my wife is ahead of me on; is mostly full of her shows

Yes, I do love Spongebob physics though!

The Walking Dead is a favorite on our DVR also. It makes for an interesting contrast.
