*Groan*

Yes, I know there's a ton of things I could be writing about.  For example, many of the new Formula 1 cars have been rolled out for realsies, they've all got a new doohicky that we can hate yet will get used to by midseason, and on and on... just like every new season!  There's a bunch of anime that I need to catch back up on... After The Rain, Violet Evergarden, Citrus...  I even have a couple of features that I want to write!


And I just can't.  I'm trying, I really am, but I get out of work, and instead of doing things that need doing, I just come home and sleep.  Or I eat, then I sleep.  Or I get home, fire up the computer, and I just watch thought-provoking yootoob videos for a while, then I sleep.  I know this is disappointing... believe me, I know... yet I'll have to ask you to bear with me while I get over this... this... whatever it is.

1 I probably shouldn't admit to how long I let that YT video run before realizing I should close that tab...

2 Add a 2yo and a 6yo to that and you have described my life...except replace thought-provoking YouTube with children's movies, the assorted problems with which become more noticeable on repeated viewings. 

Say...if Buzz doesn't know he's a toy, then how does he know to freeze and not talk around Andy?

3 I think it gets into phenomenology.  All toys have some kind of innate understanding that they are a toy, and instinctively react as if they are.  However, as per a minor message in the original movie, the more advanced a toy is, the more they are likely to view themselves as *real*.  Consider that Buzz, IIRC, doesn't ever call himself a human astronaut or anything of the like...he IS a space commando or whatever he was.

Been a while since I've watched any of the Toy Story movies.




Spoiler warning.



If you haven't seen Toy Story.
