Visit Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood

You might have noticed that Metroblogging Seattle has leapt happily onto the bandwagon (check out the ‘Events’ tab on the sidebar for a feed of local goings-on). Why, you ask? Because it’s awesome. If I hadn’t been browsing through’s list of Seattle events, I might never have known that the Children’s Museum is inviting grownups to come play in Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood from 5 to 7 on Thursday April 13th (tomorrow!) and Thursday May 4th. These evenings are for adults only, so you don’t have to compete with rugrats for a seat on the Neighborhood Trolley. Toot! Toot!

Now, I grew up in Canada, watching Mr. Dressup instead of Mr. Rogers, so a ride on the Neighborhood Trolley isn’t as exciting a prospect as a rummage through the Tickle Trunk. Even so, I’m tempted to go check it out … if only to see some American yahoos playing dressup with Mr. Rogers’ sweaters.

    Man, Mr. Rogers freaked me out as a kid. The fact that he changed his shoes on television really upset me for some reason–it might be why I rarely watch tv even to this day.

    I’m one of those American yahoos.

    If it weren’t Maundy Thursday tomorrow I’d come to the meeting to thwap you.

    with upcoming being not quite as ubiquitous as it could be just yet, i’m the one that ended up posting that event. not trying to be all comment-spammy, but you might want to check out my blog (and the associated upcoming account), since it’s all about the random stuff out there, for yahoos, both american and not.

    Samantha, that is strangely endearing.

    Don’t get me wrong, Dylan: I like yahoos. Yahoos make the world go ’round.

    Mr. Spanning-Time, I should have given you billing there: thanks for the tips, Mr. Rogers-related and otherwise. I’m sure your site will be of interest to many Seattle Metblog readers …
