I Might Be A Little Addicted

Oh, y'all.

My heart is heavy today.

It's a sad, sad day in my household.

Well, it's a sad day to me - everyone else is business as usual.

A tragedy has occurred and the thought of it makes me reach for the comfort of chocolate.

My TiVo is gone.

I know, I'll pause while you catch your breath.

It's actually not gone. The box is still there. But the TiVo-ed shows are gone. Poof.

And if you know anything about me, I appreciate the fine art of TiVo more than any other human on this planet. Since my daily TV schedule rotates around Dora the Explorer, Yo Gabba Gabba, Barney, & The Wonderpets, and my nighttime schedule rotates around homework, dinner, bathtime, & various extracurricular activities, the TiVo is my window to the outside world. I never fret about missing an episode of America's Next Top because I know the TiVo will be my rescuer. I can put the kids to bed and have a little brain dead time at the end of the day. It's wonderful.

I also re-watch shows a lot. I'm a compulsive re-watcher. I had (sniff) 30 episodes of REBA TiVo-ed, for crying out loud! (I know my friend, Annie, will appreciate the tragedy of lost REBAs.) There are several shows that I had on there that I will watch from time to time that are over a year old! I mean, what's a girl gonna do without February 13, 2007's Lifetime Movie of the Day? Or the 2006 Academy of Country Music Awards?

They're special to me, people.

I think I'm breaking out in hives.

The new TiVo (boo! hiss!) will be up and running today. But its little memory will be blank. Kaput. Nada. I will have to start over.

I might need a support group. And definitely significant amounts of chocolate.

I Really Am Southern


1. I don't really like sweet tea.
2. I'd rather have a drink without ice. I'd like it COLD, but really prefer no ice.
3. I don't like Pride & Prejudice (book or movie) or any other sappy romance movie/book.
4. I've never seen Gone with the Wind.
5. I'm not a NASCAR fan.
6. I will never like humidity.
7. I have a secret desire to live in Colorado, Montana, or Wyoming.
8. I will not, WILL NOT, wear panty hose.
9. I love Sarah Palin's accent.
10. I like Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi the same. I'm not even kidding.


1. I LOVE how we talk down here.
2. I'd rather go to the Alabama Gulf Coast than the Caribbean. I think it's prettier, too.
3. I'm PROUD of being Southern and love listening to my children speak with their young southern drawls.
4. I love college football so much that I get mad if I have things to do on Saturdays that disrupt my college football time.
5. Helen Keller is one of my life heroes.
6. My children wear bows in their hair whenever we leave the house.
7. I will never wear white shoes after Labor Day or before Easter.
8. I love neighborhoods where everyone knows everyone - I live in one of those neighborhoods.
9. I appreciate good fried chicken, potato salad, and any side dish made with Jello.
10. My air conditioning works in hyper drive during the summer months because I hate to sweat.

What about you? How are you alike/not alike your geographic stereotype? I'm interested to know.
