The only shows we really care about (besides news and sports, both of which can be read... remember the newspaper?) are The Office and American Idol.
The Office can be rented and is actually preferred that way since it would be without commercials or week long cliff hangers.
American Idol, on the other hand, I haven't seen for rent. Besides, if you know who won would you really want to watch all those shows? Not me. I must admit that the audition shows were a little less painful to watch so far. there seems to be more of a balance between the good, the bad, and the ugly. :-p
To get to the end of this season of television (until May) it will cost us $120 +. To rent S5 of The Office will be around $20. Of course if we get someone to tape them for us the cost would be $1.07. The cost of a VHS tape from the Dollar Tree.
I had a thought about mugs today. Once upon a time I was a hard core trekkie. You are welcome to love that fact about me if you so please. Star Trek: The Next Generation was my obsession for at least three years, and it was all Lt. Commander Data's fault. Nowadays, though, I rarely have time to watch it let alone obsess over it and lets just be honest, marriage cures a lot of things like having too much time to yourself.
Anyway, I remembered that once upon a time I had owned a few Star Trek mugs. There are a couple in this pic, which ARE NOT UGLY (Thank you very much Sandy Toes ;-) ), but I had two others that may have qualified. One was a bust of Data, which I treasured and don't know why I ever got rid of, and the other was of Dr. Beverly Crusher which I don't know why I owned in the first place since I couldn't stand her. I thought I still had the latter still tucked away in a garage sale box but, alas, I could not find her. Too bad because she would have been a shoe in.
One of these days I will have to post the video of my room back in the Trekkie Becky days... you will be shocked and awed... Hmmm.... maybe not. I would like to keep what few readers I have.
My Love is kickin' my patootie with this weight loss thing... You can read about it here.
My Christmas tree is still up. Is anyone else's? I thought I might be motivated to get it put away tonight but I got to blogging and ... well... you know the rest. I don't feel too guilty though. I did do the dishes, fold all the laundry, declutter the floor, bathe the kids, pack My Love's lunch, cleaned up our room, and helped Kiah work on a pres ant for Grandma.
The tree can wait.
Oops... I almost forgot to post my new (made up) word of the week.
Lindonian: adv. Of, or being like, in words or action, Linda @ 2nd cup of coffee.
Wearing a tree skirt around your neck would be a very lindonian thing to do but she would Ken Lee you for it. ;-)
See, now I'm just pickin' on ya.
