The only redeeming factor of Monday is Monday night television. I'll admit it, I like TV. Last night I sat down on the couch, giddy with excitement, to hear the time tick of the 24 clock. After watching one of the best 24 episodes of the season, I watched my previously TiVo'd episode of Heroes, which was fantastic. I'm not going to do a review of these shows or anything like that other than to say that I went to bed with a smile on my face and was ready to discuss the episodes with co-workers today.
That brings me to my second topic: TiVo. If you are reading this and you do not have TiVo or some other form of DVR, you are missing out on one of the greatest inventions in the history of the world. Having the ability to season pass your favorite show, pause live TV, do your own instant re-plays and being able to watch show on your time schedule is revolutionary. For example, the other week M and I were watching an episode of the Amazing Race. There was a scene where Shmirna (who is a little person (notice how I'm politically correct)) was dressed in a suit of armor and had to lead a horse to a certain destination. The whole scene was rather amusing and then it culminated with a scene where the horse knocked her face down and she couldn't get up. Had we not had the TiVo, we couldn't have re-played that scene over and over again while laughing hysterically until we were crying. It is the simple things in life that give us joy. But seriously, suck it up and get a TiVo. You'll be glad you did.
