Oh TV, I hardly knew ye.
Christmas (and my birthday) came early this year. My boy (and some kind familial contributors) pooled their pennies to buy me the ultimate geek toy, a nice spanking new Tivo. And the boy let me open it as soon as it came
I've been pretty much chomping at the bit for one for ages and now it's ALL MINE!
After a few momentary snafus (one of the curiosities of living in Jersey City is that sometimes a call to a different area code is cheaper than one within our area code) it was all up and running. Within 5 minutes, I couldn't imagine using a television without it.
Pause Nigella to make some tea? Skip the commercials upon returning? Rewind to look at how weird her butt looks all squished into that girdle? Word.
It's miraculous. I may never leave the house again.
If only to make sure I can teach it not to record Designing Women: when I sat down this morning, there were FOUR episodes queued up for me to watch. Yech! I'm not that gay.

actually, sometimes i enjoy an episode of designing women every now and then (before that strange cast change). when can we teach tivo to get anderson cooper on cnn?

can tivo really pause the show?! Wow, I want one now so I too, can watch Designing Women. Lucky.

Excuse me while I combust in jealousy.
If you ever catch me sneaking into your window (I know where you live, yo) I'm so sticking with the story that I just came to pet the cats who are named after female children story characters. Everyone thinks I'm that book obsesive that they'll buy that one. Suckahs.

Will you adopt me?

I suppose this means that you've enrolled. Can we see your student ID, please?

Right now, my Tivo has eight episodes of Designing Women lurking on its hard drives. I am that gay.

Order some military history documentaries, just to fuck with its head.

Yes, those little antennae on the box illustration are actually for the gaydar sensors.
