Home Sweet Home

I love to travel. It is probably my most favorite thing to do. And in my day I have done plenty of it. It never ever gets old. But with all the traveling, there is still no place like home.

There's nothing like your own stuff for the ultimate in comfort. As I write this, I am sitting in my special spot on the couch with the cushion specially formed for the unique curves of my butt while drinking out of my own dishes watching my own Tivo'd shows on my own TV. Pure bliss!

Speaking of Tivo - what the hell did we do before Tivo? How did we exist as a human race without the ability to easily record our favorite shows, pause live television, and have a wonderful menu system for seeing what is on. I don't know what I would do without it. It would be liking living without the automobile, electricity, or fire!

This week on vacation, our condo didn't have digital cable or a DVR. We didn't watch much TV, but when we did we actually had to flip through the channels to see what was on! Or watch that dumb TV Guide channel. Can you believe that crap? It felt so 1990's!

I remember when we got our first Tivo almost 6 years ago. I was an instant addict. I would pause the show just so that I could cough. I felt so powerful - the Lord of Television Programming. I started and stopped TV shows at my whim.

So, here we sit. Home on Easter. Spending the whole day watching 20 hours of recorded shows that we could have easily lived without watching if the whole DVR thing didn't exist. Technology sure does spoil us. But that may not neccessarily be good, eh?

Back to work tommorrow. Yuck! But back into a regular routine is good I guess. Maybe on tomorrow's post, I'll throw up a couple pictures of Graceland. Man, Elvis had the original Crib. He was big pimpin'!

Stickman out!
