A new FYI...

FYI, I get my useless trivia from the Internet! There are things like that EVERYWHERE! People who donate their time to researching that kind of stuff and people like me who like to look it up, keep them going.

Just for the record, I don't watch the Discovery channel, because WE DON'T HAVE IT! I am probably one of the last in my neighborhood that doesn't have any sort of Cable or Satelite or TIVO. And you know what, we are surviving just fine. It is probably a good thing we don't because sometimes it is nice to be able to tell my kids that there really is nothing on.

Oh, and how do I watch the shows I miss you ask? With an old-fashioned VCR. I hand set it everytime I want to watch something, but can't right at the moment. Then I watch it and fast-forward the commercials. Sometimes I even just watch the commercials too. There are some disturbing ones out there.

For example, there is this commercial out right now of a guy and a girl unbuttoning their pants and talking about how they aren't sure if they are ready for this or not, and the girl is like, come on, sometimes you just have to go for it. And then you see them in their undies jumping in a lake. Uh, yeah, I don't really want my kids watching that crap... While I'm on that subject, why is it that FOX has to have the SCARIEST commercials on during American Idol. Don't they know that little kids like watching the show? The sad thing is, they probably do know it and don't care. Money is money no matter how they get it or who they get it from... I'm just sayin'.

I HATE that commercial. I can't believe they have it on TV. I am one of those cable/dishless houses. And, I love being able to tell our kids nothing is on. I couldn't imagine the fight we would have if there actually WAS something on. And, I am proud to admit that there isn't a show that we actually follow anymore. There are some we like to watch if we have a chance, but I don't shape my life around it anymore.

Well I don´t have cable either so yeah to us!! I do pay like 12 dollars a month for like basic channels, but that is only because in Oklahoma you have to know exactly when and where a tornado may hit and yes we enjoy watching American Idol too and Lost, but haven´t seen that for a really long time! Other than that sometimes PBS or OETA in Oklahoma. We are old school too and record with a VCR!
