Obviously there's nothing to it.
I googled it; apparently it's something on The Comedy Channel. What's really surprising is annika is a law student who seems to have tons of time to watch TV, when I can hardly squeeze in the extra hour to watch "House."
it's all a matter of priorities, my friend. for instance, i could possibly make time to watch House if every other tv show had suddenly been cancelled, and my sock drawer was in perfect order.
Actually, priorities and technology. I'm a first-year associate at a major law firm and still religiously watch a good ten TV shows a week. I heart my TiVo.
Well hell V, if you'd give up cruising gay bars, you'd have all the time in the world, ya freakin' felcher.
annika, you have no idea what you're missing. truly. and I suspect you'd play in your shoe closet before straightening up your sock drawer.
Law Fairy, even with TiVO that saves you...what? 15-18 minutes of commercials/hour you don't have to watch?
Well hell, Casca, if you'd quit followin' me into them and...uhhh...
Dang, there's not really a good retort to that one. Damn you, Casca!
Victor -- it's not so much about the time saved from not watching commercials (I can always multitask during commercials anyway) but the ability to watch the shows after I get home from work late. And being able to rewind them if I pass out from fatigue while I'm trying to watch. Mmmmm, TiVo.
Ah--an important distinction. I know a lot of attorneys where I work get in relatively late--between 9 & 10--plus they can afford housing in DC (no hour+ commutes). I also suspect a lot of them (and possibly you and annika) can get by on less sleep than I (my father was fine on 3 hrs a night). Me? I get up at 5AM every day, plus I need at least 8 hours each night, which means I get seven if I'm lucky.
I missed the first episode, but I'm about to catch the second one. I'm expecting good things...
Rick, the opening monologue was so funny, i wish is had written it.
Victor, i get by with about 5-6 hours.
i get by with about 5-6 hours.
That helps 'splain it. Wish I could...
"I think about the news so you don't have to." Isn't that YOUR job?
