Fall is Here and so IS....

Thursday night. ..

Well I am sure that my butt print on the couch will come out eventually with some hitting, turning, banging, and fluffing!

I am not ashamed to say it; I will even put it in quotation marks to make it even more real … “Kevin and I watch A LOT of TV!” There it is out, and I am glad that we can all know that come Thursday nights (especially Thursday nights) you will most likely find us in our favorite spots watching our favorite shows.

Thank heavens for DVR, (yes, this is just how much TV we love) because of this wonderful invention (which if you ask Kevin I am sure he will tell you he invented it when he was 8, or maybe 6…) you can invite us out on a Thursday night, and we will enjoy ourselves with you because we are not controlled by what time NBC or ABC or CBS decides to show our Favorite shows, but rather we will record it and fast-forward through all the new (and can I say STUPID) commercials about High Fructose Corn Syrup, and how it is fine in moderation (but as they forget to mention, it is also not recognized by your body as anything, so it is stored as fat – DR OZ, says so, so it must be true!!)

So that is my posting for tonight, nothing spiritual, nothing over the top, just an honest post to let you guys in on another part of our journey…the part where Kevin and Beth watch a lot of TV!!!

DVR has now become one of those technologies that we can't live without. Sad, but true. My parents don't have DVR and yet I found myself constantly trying to "rewind" the news while at their house during Hurricane Ike.

Because we have Dish, we can only record and/or watch 2 shows at a time. So last night Stacey and I were trying to determine what to record and what to watch later online. I've been in business meetings that were less complex. :) And the other thing about the DVR is that is starts recording the show a minute early, so while watching Survivor, it switched to the other channel right before Jeff tallied the votes at tribal council.

All of this was happening while I was downing glass after glass of Dr. Pepper (i.e. high fructose corn syrup.) I think I can feel myself getting fatter. I'd like to think I'm just storing up fat for the upcoming winter. (You know how brutal winters are here in SE Texas.) Fortunately I have this nice office job where I sit on my butt all day to help me keep the pounds on. :)

Ha ha! Who knew you would strike such a chord with my husband... over TV! Figures! :)

Do we sound pathetic or what?

Not Pathetic, rather...Educated TV Watchers!

Ah, yes. That's better! Now, I want some Dr Pepper.
