I don't know why, but when the television DVR (digital video recorder) has more than fifty percent usage, I get uneasy. Most of the DVR space is used up by Mark's cooking shows and housewives shows. Anyway, the usage went up over fifty percent yesterday so Mark and I spent Thursday night catching up on shows that had been recorded. Here are a couple of things that I noticed last night. First, a number of comedy shows that I watch, specifically Louie and Legit aren't that funny anymore. In Louie, Louie has a long conversation about dating fat women, with a fat woman. It wasn't funny so much as uncomfortable seeing as I am now the fat girl in my life. On the show Legit, the star of the show Jim Jefferies, gets shot. Again, I wasn't amused. Besides those two shows, we caught up on Jeopardy and Modern Family. Which brings me to the second thing I realized last night, television ad breaks are much, much longer than they used to be. It used to be that you had just enough time to either go pee, or go get a cookie and a glass of milk from the kitchen, but not do both. Now as soon as the ad break comes on, you can still go pee, even if you have a giant swollen prostate and it takes five minutes to trickle out your bladder, and then still have time left over to mix yourself a cocktail. But of course I'm watching television from a DVR and I can simply pause the shows while I go do those things, so there's no real problem with that giant prostate of mine.
