Favorite Things Friday

My favorite thing I want to talk about this week is my DVR or digital video recorder. Some call it TiVo, some call it a PVR but whatever you call it I think it is one of the greatest inventions. How I lived without this gem I will never know. I can tape anything I want with the touch of a button and then I never have to sit through boring commercials.

Since I do not have any children to occupy my time and when I am not on the computer or working I like to watch TV. Probably way to much TV but oh well. I am a reality TV addict and with this handy dandy device I can pretty much watch all of them except I am not into the talent competitions like American Idol (yes I said it... I do not like American Idol)and I hate dating shows like the Bachelor, oh and I am so over SURVIVOR. All other crap TV is fair game. Plus if the show is boring or moving slowly I can speed it up. So while I watch a lot more shows I can actually spend less time watching TV because of my DVR. What would normally take like 4 hours of TV I can watch in 2.5 hours. I love it! You never have to miss a thing and then you do not have to fight with your hubby who is OBSESSED with sports because now you can just record and watch later. Everyone is happy!

So that's it...if you don't have one and you watch TV then you should get one as soon as possible. It is also great if you have kids because you can record your shows while they watch theirs and again everyone is happy!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I am hoping mine is!

I heart my DVR. It is wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!

(sigh) - No tv or dvr or tvo or anything in this house. Cancelled the whole shabang two years ago when the little one was getting a mite addicted to certain shows!

I have to admit, however, I do rent the season episodes from one series at a time and fold laundry to them on Friday night! Right now, I am on Season 4 Disk 4 of Sex and the City! (MUST FINISH BEFORE WATCHING MOVIE!)

LOVE my PVR. It's seriously my most favorite thing I own.

It honestly took me a couple of weeks to warm up to our DVR, but now it's wonderful! When I watch live TV and a commercial comes on, I always reach for the fast-forward and then get disappointed. :)

I don't have TIVO, but you've reminded me of how cool it is.

On a totally unrelated note, I hope you decide to submit something for the debut issue of Exhale. Please pass this along to any other friends who you think might have a story to share.

Here's the info:

Love my DVR! Except I keep running out of space.

I think I can honestly say that I don't think I could survive w/o mine!

DVR is one of those things I didn't realize just how important is was until I had it myself. Now I don't know how we got along so long without it!

I am so spoiled now, I can't watch anything in real time!
