We're no longer on TV time
Monday, November 02, 2009
We live in a place where we're on Atlantic Standard Time year round - we don't go on Daylight Savings Time, we're too close to the equator for it to matter.
So for half the year, the summer half, we're on the same time as the east coast of the USA.
But in winter, we're one hour ahead. So we're not on TV time.
This makes a difference only on Mondays (I'm a "House" junkie) and Thursdays ("Grey's Anatomy" and "Project Runway") - because instead of the shows being over by 9 or 10 or even 11, now they're over by 10 or 11 or midnight.
And yes, I could wait until reruns in the summer. Except I'm often travelling then. And who wants to wait?
And yes, we could Tivo or VCR the show, except we haven't gotten to Tivo technology, and neither DH nor I have figured out how to program and record the VCR.
Can we say techno-dinosaurs? Yup, that's us.
And of course, DH will be up even later sleeping in front of the World Series, or Monday night football, or whatever sports (or MTV) thing is on. At least he can sleep sitting up with the TV on. And we have two TVs, so I can leave him sleeping and I'll go to bed with the cat. However late.
I guess Friday morning will be my coffee day.
