PMSing and stuff

I am really pissed that Matt deleted the Star Treks I wanted to watch off the TiVo! The TiVo is set to be continually recording Star Trek: The Next Generation and then dumping the ones that have been on there awhile when it needs space. We set it to save ones we want to watch later, so it won't delete them. Last week, Spike TV had finally rolled around to the ones I hadn't seen for awhile, or watched as many times (seasons 5-7). So I set the TiVo to save a few episodes to watch later, picking only the ones I REALLY wanted to watch, that I liked a lot and hadn't seen since they were first aired!

So today, I finally find some time to sew and watch TV, and I go to the Star Treks. He's dumped them all except for "The Inner Light", which he just always saves on there since it's his favorite episode. Since that's still there, I know that it's Matt, not the TiVo screwing up. He's done it before, though it mattered to me less that time. So I call his cellphone to bitch at him. He says, oh, I thought you'd watched them since they'd been on there awhile. This is silly for two reasons:

1. I always unsave shows after I watch them so the TiVo can delete them. I used to just delete the Star Treks I'd watched, but Matt complained saying he might want to watch them, and said I should just let the TiVo delete them when it needs space.

2. I do not watch a lot of TV. I do not save a lot of shows on the TiVo. I also do not always watch TV very often. So shows will sit there awhile waiting for me to watch them, but there won't be a lot of them. The TiVo is mostly full of the stuff Matt watches. We have very, very different TV-watching habits, and the TiVo is set up such that I end up missing stuff a lot more than I did when I just programmed my damn VCR.

He also keeps unplugging the lamp in the living room so he can bring the extension cord the lamp is plugged into closer to the couch and plug in his cellphone charger. Every time I go to turn on the lamp to have enough light to read or sew, I need to find go drag the extension cord back and plug it in again. I complained about that, too, and then went into the closet and got a second extension cord to eliminate that problem.

There are a lot of things that occasionally really bug me about living with Matt. None are anything to do with the things that happened with our relationship. They are just the conflicts of two people with different habits trying to live together.

I think ours came with our sattellite TV package. Which is why it doesn't have as much space as Matt would like. He needs to get it a bigger hard drive.

If you have DirecTV and it is an integrated unit with dual-tuners, that'd would be the 'DirecTiVo' unit. They're decent, but lack all the networking features of standalones. (Hi, I run tivolovers)

1. Nice Jem icon. (I'm a Jem fan from WAY back.)

2. Right now the 80 hour Series2 is just $70 after rebate. (I run tivolovers)
