I'm getting loose ends taken care of before we leave for our vacation. One of the biggest things will be, as Brent termed, my "come to Jesus" with TiVo. I have to make sure I set it for all my existing favorites and the premieres of new shows that I'm interested in and that nothing will be missed while we're gone. I'll have to reevaluate my season passes and determine my priorities. Man, I wish I had two or three TiVos, like a friend of ours. Then again, she works for TiVo and has televisions and TiVos IN HER CUBE. How awesome is that???
Lucky for me I have this cheat sheet of premieres. It'll make things much easier.
I'm already quite into:
- Biggest Loser - I was inspired by the show while working out this week, thinking how awesome it is that they're able to make such wonderful transformations.
- Beauty and the Geek - I got into this last season, but this season looks even better. They're throwing in a beauty guy and a geeky girl!
I'm sad that I'll be missing The Office premiere, but I'm sure it'll be just as thrilling when I return.
I put our mail on hold, which was too freakin' easy thanks to this link that Shelby posted a while back. And I called my bank today to give them a heads-up that I'd be traveling overseas.
I've also been cramming for our trip by listening to the Drive & Learn Italian CDs, which teaches Italian phrases via songs. It's similar to the learning techniques used on Sesame Street. How else would I know the difference between near and far? So I've been running around the office and our place singing in Italian. I'll have to stop myself from singing the phrases to the Italian shop keepers and restaurateurs.
Three days left! Wheeeeeee!
