i love technology, volume 279


OK--do all my blogging friends have TiVo or a DVR? Absolutely essential. I mean, there is no way that you can see all the amazing things that are happening on tv without it. Again..the threshold of what I can't live without has been raised. Just like my blackberry, OnStar, my iPod ADT and the list goes on....

Anywho, I was at a sales/marketing training this past week and the very, very famous man speaking to us said a lot of powerful things in the 8+ hours I was there...but one particular thing stood out and I'll paraphrase that "self-made millionaires all worked very hard when they were new....and poor people watch TV all the time".

Such a good point. The competition isn't sitting around watching a lot of TV. Hmmmm...

So I sat their and smugly thought that I had the TV situation on lock down...all my shows are recorded..(sometimes two at a time!) and then I can watch them after hours..between 9p and midnight. And truly...there are only a few to record. Gossip Girl, Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, Dr 90210, Lipstick Jungle, Law and Order:SVU, Dirty Sexy Money, The Office and Entourage of course..

Oh snap.

That is more than I thought. And I am dangerously close to the edge of being a "TV person". (umm, over the edge already?)

And they are all like completely silly shows too. Hmmm...I think that relaxing and putting the brain in neutral is a good thing for stress relief every so often, but perhaps this is too much?

Is 'TV person' only a bunny hop away from 'couch potato'...

Oh lordy...too heavy to contemplate this late at night. I will take a stab at the DVR list in the morning...

Night night sweet people!

xo,
Lulu

I don't have Tivo or a DVR actually...I don't even have a DVD player. I'm just not a TV person. I'll turn it on for background noise but have no idea what the popular shows are right now. I've never seen the Gossip one and I never watched Sex in (and?) the City when it was on TV....but I check my email on my iPhone at least 15 times a day. We all have our vices.

I usually watch my shows live (but have to tape Entourage because I watch Brothers and Sisters). DVR is definitely nice to have for those times you have to miss a show.

Do you not watch Greys?

I definitely always most of the time tape my t.v. shows. So later on after I've finished everything I need to do during the day, I can sit down and relax and enjoy my shows. The great thing I like about it is, I can fast forward through the commercials. I have to admit though, I am truly a Reality Show Junkie. Most of my favorite t.v. shows are narrowed down to them. Every now and then I may watch Boston Legal & Lipstick Jungle. Hey I don't think watching t.v. pose as a being a couch potatoe if you don't do it for long, long hours of the day. For the rest of the evening watching it, counts as a reward for all of the stress you have to deal with early in the day. Know what I mean? We deserve to reward ourselves after a long day with eating chocolate, and of course watching our favorite shows. You deserve it girlfreind.
