Feeling much better, I really need Tivo this week, and I think I created another QaF fan. ;)

First of all, thank you all so much for your well wishes and comments in my last entry. I'm actually feeling much better this morning and will be attempting to tackle a full day of work - whether or not I'm able to be productive is yet to be seen. ;P

On a completely separate note, I REALLY need to get Tivo! Our house doesn't have a single working VCR these days and it hasn't been too much of a problem since it's rare that I even watch TV, much less want to keep it for posterity... but Mark just reminded me last night that we won't be home on Thursday night to see the finale of "Celebrity Duets". We'll actually be seeing our local production of "Thoroughly Modern Millie" - which I'd been looking forward to seeing for a long time now. I'm REALLY not one for reality TV, but shoot... Hal Sparks is in the finals and I FINALLY decided to watch it and - now I can't. Boo! I'd ask someone at work to tape it, but with no VCR, what would I watch it on? :P Well, I'll have to settle for watching the Friday show and hoping that they do a re-cap OR look on You Tube - hopefully someone posts a clip. :P

Eventually we'll probably have to get something like Tivo and my question to all of you is - should we invest in Tivo or a stand alone DVR? I know what the answer will probably be, but I'm kinda ignorant about TV technology (not having turned my TV on in the longest time...) that I'm not sure about the advantages or disadvantages to each. Any advice you might be able to give me on either would be greatly appreciated. :)

Speaking of Hal (which I wasn't really doing, but any excuse is a great one to bring him up) my Mom actually enjoyed the first DVD of Queer as Folk that I let her borrow. Aside from her "I can't believe they have this show on cable" remarks to me every few seconds, she said the writing and especially the acting were incredible and she's already asking to borrow the other episodes. :) I think I've created another QaF fan. :)

Well, I'm off to start my day... LOTS of meetings and interviews today... oh joy. ;P I do have to keep reminding myself how much I really do love my job. :) Hope you all have a lovely day! :) *HUGS*
