some things are meant to be broken II

Let’s play “The Glad Game” again.

I’m GLAD our DVD player broke irreparably so that we had to buy a new one!

Why? Since our VCR packed it in sometime last year, we have been unable to tape anything on TV. But our DVD player was working just fine; we were perfectly happy to rent DVDs to watch movies or current TV (adfree! yay) or HBO series.

The dead VCR and our inability to tape really wasn’t all that much of a problem. Except when we decided to sit down to see what was on the food network. Inexplicably, no matter what time we turned the TV onto the Food Network (Canada), we seemed destined to catch one of two shows: “Paula’s Home Cooking” with Paula Deen or worse, “30-Minute Meals” with Rachael Ray. Usually a repeat broadcast that we’d already watched in fascination, unable to tear ourselves away. To add insult to injury, there were always tantalizing advertisements for other peoples’ shows.

Not that there’s anything wrong with the Ms’s Ray and Deen (cough). We just wanted to see someone else cooking. Anyone else cooking. And now that we have a DVD player that also records, we never have to watch Paula Deen or Rachael Ray again!

I think we just won the Glad Game.

We just saw “Feasting on Asphalt” with Alton Brown for the first time. What a great show!
