We're Off to a Boopingly Good Start


TheScreamNo1, originally uploaded by carolWorldLeader.

So, I get my new TiVo, and I plug in it and I start watching TV. I "boop" up Law and Order, I "boop" up a couple of other shows that I routinely watch. I'm thinking, "ok, this is not so bad. It works well enough. So far, no wild Nicolas Cage obsessions, bad soaps, or like Pauley Shore re-runs..."

And then, it hits me. The first show it recommends from it's grand list of suggestions: The Dead Zone.

Yipes!

Until next time...

Here are some updated stats:
# of words: 1636 (I was pretty close when I said "about 1500" wasn't I?)
# of late night half-hearted attempts at actually turning on the PC to write something: 0
# of coffee drinks: 2 (but they were almost normal, so I'm seriously thinking about re-setting this counter)
# of Christmas muzzies: about 7
# of times I've written Nicolas Cage into my novella: 0 (but, if I run out of time...Hey, you never know. A pesky Mechapixel contest contending annoyingly boopable actor could come in handy.)
# of penguins: stands at 2, although they freeze to death in transport. (They can actually freeze to death. I googled. And wiki-ed. And, like, somehow, just knew.)

Not only is your blog entertaining, but also educational!

(...and goes well with a really nice chianti) :-)

They really can freeze to death. Honest.

As far as picking out a really nice Chianti, sorry, but, you're on your own for that one.
