Maybe this is why I get so much knitting done. I don’t know how I find time to watch television, or knit for that matter. Over the weekend, we bought a new oversized in a way that might threaten my manhood if I were a man and it weren’t my tv decent sized television. In the process, Phillip ripped the DVR box away from me and ran off to comcast to fetch a new HD box before telling me that all of the shows on our DVR would be lost. He did this because it was entirely more important for him to see his television in all of its HD glory. When he got home and I realized this, I felt like some one had stolen my dog away! It was terrible. So then we spent the next hour or so going through the website of each channel and trying to remember what shows we watch and want to record. At the end of it all, I came to several conclusions:
1. I watch too many television shows. So many that more than one show might be recording at any given time, while I am forced to watch a third live because stupid comcast can only record two shows at once. This causes me some anxiety…panic almost. Is my brain shrinking as a result of this?
2. I watch almost nothing on ABC
3. I have a dirty secret…an addiction to almost everything on WE tv. Haven’t seen this channel yet? Oh you have it..you just don’t realize it. It hosts some good ones like Bridezilla and Women Behind Bars. Good garbage television!
4. It is much more efficient to record all of your television shows and watch them without commercials.This will allow you to get more “quality” tv time and less commercial time. I use the word “quality” loosely.
5. Recording all of your television shows will result in a complete documented list of all of the television that you watch and may result in the panic indicated in #1.
6. Dirty Jobs should not be viewed in hi-def. In fact, I may have to stop watching that show. The pixelated haze that used to cover my view of the show (and the fact that I was watching it on a small television from across a sizeable room) was a blessing. I want it back.
