Tivo…a blessing or a curse?? That’s a question I would never have had to to hesitate to think about back in the VCR era of my life. OF COURSE A BLESSING…to be able to record programs at a drop of a hat without wondering if I had a blank or “unnecessary” tape to record over…to not have to worry if there was enough tape to record the 2hr. program that was only going to be on ONCE before it was locked up in a fairytale castle vault, not to be seen again for god knows how long…maybe for as long as that “sleeping beauty” girl was getting bed sores waiting for “her prince to come”…no double entendre intended J
Anyway, with all these holiday programs & surprisingly scheduled music awards, I have been craving entertainment on the tube. “Independence Day” was scheduled on cable & I had it TIVO-ed…days later, I finally was able to watch it in 2 sittings in 2 days. It sort of lost it’s glitter, but it was still far better than the holiday programs scheduled.
After watching it though, a strange question popped into my head that kept my brain leaping for hours till I finally got the answer “just right”
“The Question”: (despite all my health concerns and doctorly advice from everyone, including my doctor)….If I knew I was going to be killed by an alien invasion in 24hrs…what would I want for my last meal?
“The Answer”: ..(I would have my husband drive me to a few of my favorite places…since I would need both hands to gather & nibble such a feast)…
To “China Express”…for the best won ton soup in town
To “KFC”…for a bucket of legs & thighs w/ biscites
To “that Chinese restaurant near the grocery story”…for “Singapore Streetnoodles”
To “Foster’s Freeze”…for a large orange freeze & strawberry shake…the shake is for my husband who is driving.
To “Valentino’s Pizzeria”…for a large ½ & ½..half pepperoni & Italian sausage, half pineapple & Canadian bacon…the pineapple one for my hubby who doesn’t know that pizzas should never be made of fruit.
To “Jack-in-the-Box”…for those amazingly greasy & cheap tacos (99 cents !)
Then for desert…any donut shop that has a wide assortment of bear claws & jelly-filled.
@#$% damn it…where is that alien invasion anyway!!!
