just let me be mad and don't say 'tivo'

i was really looking forward to seeing the new episodes of 'The Amazing Race' and 'Lost' tonight. i spent 15 minutes programming my roommate's new dvd/vcr. what i didn't realize until i came home and had time for a test was that "program" only means number of time and settings show up in the display corner for the alloted time and absolutely NOTHING gets recorded.

i am livid.

All is not lost!

ABC has started streaming their latest episodes. I don't know how long they will be available, so check it out soon!

technology can really suck sometimes. I guess DVD box sets are a solution. Can't really recommend them though, I don't have a DVD player.

I feel your pain.

DVD box sets are amazing. Though they're always expensive. I wouldn't know though, I don't watch TV. But here's to hoping you catch next weeks!

thanks guys. i think i was more mad b/c all night people were e-mailing/calling to say 'you have to call me when you've seen it! it was SOO good!' and it was just the last in a series of things that have really made me mad-- broke the camel's back if you will.

i tried the abc thing, but it kept hiccuping. and sadly this season isn't out on dvd yet.

but never fear, a lovely person is sending me a copy. :)
