Night Moves

    Our tivo receiver broke! 

After living with the ability to pause tv, and to never watch a commercial, it is really hard to go back to normal!

Pumpkin cannot remember NOT having tivo.  The poor baby.  @@  She was like, 'What do you mean you can't pause it for me to pee?', all with the hands on the hips and attitude.  Pfft. 

How did we ever survive our own childhoods in the 70's or earlier folks?  I just don't know!  LOL

Hubby is reading in my favorite chair, because the light is good there, so I am here blogging, with a cup of fresh brewed Hazelnut decaf, in my Carpe Diem mug.

I found a meme for us!

Random 4's for the 4th Day of the (work) Week - Thursday.  A meme.

4 things that scare you:

1.    Something bad happening to my kids
2.    Spiders
3.    That JK Rowling might kill Harry in Book 7 (that would suck)
4.    Bad toupees or a comeover (I mean really, please, just go bald.  Do us all a favor, and deal with it.)

4 things that make you laugh:

1.    Ass-alanche (read: my kids)
2.    Funny cat pictures with captions
3.    My pets
4.    When Hubby says 'You're not the boss of me.' BWAH HA HA HA

4 things you love:

1.    My family and pets
2.    Coffee
3.    Coffee
4.    Coffee  (what????)

4 things you hate:

1.    Intolerance
2.    Prejudice
3.    Hatred
4.    That little phlegmy tickle in your throat when you have a cold

4 things you don't understand: (good thing this is limited to 4... I could go on forever! lol)

1.    Why the prime numbers seem to be in a pattern but no one can figure it out yet
2.    The Golden Ratio, it must have some meaning, some purpose, it can't just be completely coincidental, can it?
3.    Quantum Physics
4.    The Sopranos ending (I 'get it', I just don't understand WHY David Chase!)

4 things on your desk: (I am actually at the laptop in the kitchen...)

1.    My coffee cup

2.    A box of leftover Dunkin' Donuts
3.    The cordless phone
4.    This laptop and Hubby's work at home laptop

Right now I am (list 4):

1.    ... a little annoyed at Hubby for not getting out of my chair
2.    ... annoyed that the nice steaming hot cup of decaf didn't break up that annoying phlegm in the back of my throat
3.    ... occasionally coughing, sneezing or blowing my nose
4.    ... typing this entry for all of you!

Top 4 things you say when annoyed:

1.    Shit!
2.    (insert name of child), knock it off!
3.    What part of 'no' didn't you understand, the 'n' or the 'o'?
4.    Not now, the kids!  DUH! (while slapping hands off of body parts...)

4 people you want to do this meme:

1.    You
2.    You
3.    You
4.    and, yeah, You.

That was fun!  I hope 'you' will copy and paste it into your journal to play along, let me know if you do!

be well,

I didn't have a tv with a remote until I was 23!  That's a pretty weak complaint now that I think about it.

Not only was there not tivo when I was growing up, sometimes when the reception was bad my dad would make me stand and hold the rabbit ears antennae with the tin foil on the ends so he could see!
Tell Pumpkin that sad story

gazker said...

We don't have tivo here it never took off. We have sky+ its the same I think. You can even record a show from your mobile (cell).
Ours froze in the middle of idol once, horryfying!

My kids do that DUH thing, slapping their hand across their chest !
They also make a stupid sound while doing it.
You crack me up with your answers girl!

Hope your receiver gets fixed soon, Dawn. Commercials are liable to stop me watching a programme altogether.

My daughter is afraid that harry gets killed off in this upcoming book also!

Kids have no idea. God forbid if they where locked out of the house during the summer to entertain themselves. (Typical 60's parents behavior). Loved the Meme!
I lost it with "things that make you laugh" When Hubby says 'You're not the boss of me' Lol who do they think they are kidding! (Hugs) Indigo

randlprysock said...

Great answers!!  Funny about the pause so I can pee... I love our DVR... does the same thing a TIVO does.  It is a life saver for me and my work schedule.

Remember "bunny ears" on the TV and how you had to augment them with wire hangers and aluminum foil sometimes? Haahaa.
Oh, and that picture at the bottom of this entry is just CREEPY! --Cin

Take care, Chrissie

I forgot to say something about the Tivo I just now got a DVR with my new cable system and didn't realize how attached I would be to it. My grandson is 2yo and thinks that you can just dail up any cartoon you wanna watch. My daughter was telling me that he wanted to see certain shows and she was like they're at Nay's house.. secretly I'm starting to believe this is why he wants to spend the night at my house every night.. LOL. Hope you're able to get a new one soon. Isn't it funny how you get attached to stuff.
Take care, Chrissie

LOL..Becky wanted to buy me TIVO one year for Christmas.  I didn't know what the heck it was.  I could have gotten DVR or whatever with my DISH for $5 a month but I was too cheap to do it.  I'm not sure if I could do it without a fee now or not.  Anyway, I'm officially banned from touching the DISH remote except to do anything but change a channel because I always severely mess something up.  Hope you are all feeling better.  HUGS  Chris
