SPOTD: Back in time!

What Mandy Thinks: "Simple Pleasure of the Day" post
I recently discovered that my upgraded cable box - that is more expensive per month than my food bill - has DVR capabilities, which I was too lazy to realize I had until five months after I received it.  Now I can go back in time by recording shows that are on the same time as other shows.  Although it's a slight stretch as a Simple Pleasure of the Day, the idea of letting you watch something you wouldn't have been able to at the moment you wanted to watch it feels like stepping in a time machine for 45 minutes.

No longer will I have to...

- Wait for it to get online.  The agonizing twenty-four hours or even six whole days will no longer be my undoing!

- Hope for an encore presentation.  99% of the shows I watch don't do this because it's not the 90's anymore.

- Just not end up watching it.  But it's not the 80's anymore.

The computer doohickey does a fine job, but the new-fangled cable box of AWESOME has me watching a show as if I had watched it instead of my first choice.  It's like having multiple parallel universes that can happen one after the other, no need to choose!  "Or," you say?  Cable box says AND!
