on taking notes

Right around one of the many times my mother joked about my being the only person she knows who takes notes while watching TV, hernewshoes provided proof (as if I needed any) that I'm not the only one.

Today Neil Gaiman writes of his daughter:
Last night Miss Maddy watched the episode she missed on Thursday "America's Next Top Model" on a Tivo 4000 miles away, and it made me smile, mostly because I'd never watch something like that for pleasure, but watching it with her, as she covers notepaper with the names of the contestants she likes, crossing them out when she decides she doesn't like them after all, drawing thumbs downs next to them when they don't get selected or get sent away, makes it somehow enormously enjoyable.
