Reading

The VCR/TV situation is, to put it mildly, interesting. There is no VCR in the living room, and the sound is gone, whatever sound there was. Little Fayoumis got twenty minutes of his racing game after school.

He wanted a movie after supper, but there was no VCR. Undaunted, I put on the Scooby-Doo DVD in the PS2. There was no sound. I enabled subtitles, and read the movie to him.

We really got into it.

What's better? I'm going to count it as a book. Because, technically, it's a story that I'm reading to him...
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
