Once again, work is getting in the way of life.

How bad do I want to stay home tomorrow and watch Dr.Phil lay into the Octo-mom? Pretty bad. And no, I don't have Tivo. I have a combo DVD VCR, but the DVD player is broken. So I have a tiny, sleek DVD player sitting on top of the huge monolith DVD VCR. Just so I can watch the few VHS tapes I own and occasionally tape something with the VHS tape I've had since college. It was purchased when some friends and I bought Tae Bo off an infomercial, taped it and then sent it back. We were a wild bunch. That wasn't nearly as wild as when the shirts came off and we worked out with Billy Blanks in our sports bras in the dorm. Lovely. So yeah, I want to watch. Somebody fill me in.

I had to replace my Star Wars collection on VHS with DVDs. What will they every think of next.

Breathe deeply, and think:
MOJITO x 3. (at least)

I am a BIG fan of Tivo. Picture an hour long show, condensed to 40 minutes when you FF through the commercials...It basically lets you watch and hour drama, and then a 30 minute sitcom in one hour!

Like an investment, because, well, time is money. (Says the non-income generating stay-at-home-mom-who-has-never-watched-Dr-Phil).

Erin was verrrry good to me. She recapped the entire show before it aired, sent a play-by-play synopsis to my work email. Same thing today during the cliffhanger sequel with the octo-mom's mom.
