Re: What were your dreams last night?

There were three increasingly smaller TVs inside my TV. So when I went to move the TV out of the way into my bedroom, there was a smaller one sitting there on the TV table. It was annoying.

Yeah I know they're not babuska dolls, but that's what I was brought up calling them.
