I've been out of town for over five weeks. I'm back in Seattle for a few days this week. I had some things that needed to be done before I leave again. I'll be gone for six weeks this next time. Being gone for so long requires some serious TiVo management. First thing was removing all the reality shows: Brooke Knows Best, Kendra, Daisy of Love. Also the news and talk shows I like: Daily Show, Colbert Report, Chelsea Lately. And the cartoons were dropped too: Phineas and Ferb, The League of Super Evil, and The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. That cut down of a lot of flotsam. Then I needed to balance shows out on the two different TiVos so neither got too full. So upstairs it was:
- Royal Pains
- The Soup
- The Listener
- Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List
Downstairs on the HD DVR:
- True Blood
- Better Off Ted
- The Goode Family
- Burn Notice
Some shows have ended (or only have one episode left) and other new shows have started. Kathy, Burn Notice, and The Listener were removed. Newly added this week were:
- Defying Gravity
- Warehouse 13
- Being Human
- The Real Housewives of Atlanta
- Flipping Out
- Web Soup
- Mad Men
Sometimes I have to set a manual recording (specific time each week) so I don't get every show ever like RHoA and Mad Men. They often have marathons and I don't want my hard drives choked up with old content. Also while I was home I off-loaded all the episodes of Royal Pains and The Listener to my lap-top. I hope I have a chance to watch them on this next part of my summer trip.
Where have I been? I've been working on a gay guest ranch in San Luis Obispo County, California. I'll be back in Seattle permanently just before the new fall season begins. I have limited time on the Ranch to watch TV and blog about it. We don't have wireless internet so we have to use these Verizon 3G USB cards. These have limited usage so I might be able to watch one or two things each billing cycle on Hulu. I'm going to try to set up the email function on my blog so I can just email in entries from my phone. I apologize for the future lack of photos in many of the posts.
The only show I have made a huge effort not to miss is True Blood. It's my new favorite show of all time this week.
