We're having deja vu all over again

We were watching "Medium" last night, Wonderhubby and I were.

And enjoying a trip through the bizarre dreams of Allison DuBois.

Don't judge, my friends. We have a few guilty pleasures on the boob tube, and that happens to be one of them.

Anyway, a commercial for Walmart came on, touting the Easter specials.

I rolled my eyes. "Easter's over," I scoffed. "They should get their act together."

Wonderhubby agreed. "Pretty dumb."

We went back to the drama.

Next commercial break included one for $10 Easter dresses at Kmart.

Oh, brother. We were both pretty disgusted at that point. Like, what? No one pays attention to the calendar when they book commercials?

And then it dawned on me.

We were watching last week's episode ... on our DVR.


Yeah, we're that dorky.

In other news, the April edition of Room 704's monthly magazine-style blog is out, and (once again) I'm there, baby.

Check it out. (And pay no attention to the fact that as of last night, the blog header still said it was March. Let's do the time warp again ...)

Bwahahaha! Sounds like something I'd do.

I finally threw the TIVO out. I don't need to watch every show on TV - if I miss one - I don't think my world is going to end. Besides - I am much too prone to do exactly as you did and, frankly, I don't need to give LM (Love Muffin) any more ammunition - she makes enough fun of me as it is.

My word verification is: flabbedo .

Isn't that Spanish for flabby libido?

Oh, I love Medium :-) And I have a flabby libido!

That is hilarious!

If I had a dollar for every time I flipped out about a local forecast that was for weeks, sometimes months, ago, I'd be rich. Or, I could just figure out that I never watch live TV and quit flipping out. Whichever!

Thanks for the laugh!

And there's a Facebook group for you "I always forget to fast forward through the commercials when watching my DVRed shows" said...

Ooooh! Who'd a thought that the wonders of the DVR would make life more complicated! ;-)

My sis in law (has Alzhiemers) tried to talk to her answering machine.
That has nothing to do with you watching DVR and thinking it is current.. but it made me think of that. ha ha
