I am the happiest girl on the planet. Yesterday because of my obsessiveness with TV I got one of only 3 DVR's that they had at the cable company. Apparently they have more downtown, but I got one of the only three at the location near my house and that was exciting enough.

And then I set it up. This machine is so freaking beautiful. I can tape two shows at once! No more do I have to decide which show I'm willing to miss in case I can't make it home in time. I don't have to worry about missing Angel or the OC every again. Oh and while I'm taping these two shows I can watch a taped show.

And I can pause tv. If one of you calls I'm more likely to answer the phone now, cause hey I can pause, talk to you and then pick up where I left off. You see, my getting a DVR is beneficial to you all.

I tried it out last night. I taped Angel, even though I was home to watch it. And hey what happened? While I was watching it I missed something Andrew (Andrew!) said and so I pressed rewind, and guess what? It freaking worked. I heard what I missed and continued to watch with no problems.

Now if only I could get the damn thing to cut out commercials. But apparently that is not a feature brought to you by a cable company. sigh.

i'm still so delighted by andrew. and xander in south africa and willow/kennedy in brazil. oh man. it's so great this world domination slayer thing they've got going on. if only it was a show! if only. if only also they weren't all seperated so far apart. it makes me sad to think they are not living all together still. even with conference calling. =P

p.s. congrats on your new toy. it sounds fun.

It sounds cool. Do you admire me?

this just lends further support to my theory that TV recording technology gives people more time to talk about TV recording technology.

remember, every time you fast forward through a commercial you're stealing television.
