Open Letter To My DVR

Dear DVR,

I am sorry for whatever I did to make you treat me this way. When you didn’t record Glee on Tuesday, I was only slightly upset. And even though Doogie Howser was guest starring and the next day everyone was saying how this episode made them cry, I thought to myself, It’s okay, anyone can have a minor slip up. I love my DVR unconditionally even through all its faults.

But last night, DVR. Last night was experienced a serious setback in our relationship. When I take my boyfriend out to celebrate his work accomplishments on the same night as the 2-hour season finale of Grey’s Anatomy, I expect you to be there for me. I trust you. When I sneakily check my FB on my phone during dinner while N is in the bathroom and everyone’s status reads “OMG THIS IS THE BEST GREY’S EVER!” I put faith in you that soon I will be watching this epic episode. Sure, maybe I was the first to break the trust when I checked to make sure you would be recording said episode before I left the house, but I never expected you to tell me such a boldfaced lie. I can still hear you mocking me “Oh, you want me to record this show right here? The one highlighted in red? Well joke’s on you!”

I am going to give you the benefit of the doubt that you have not been planning this sabotage for months and purposely skipped the biggest episode of the season. I am hoping this is just your time of the month and next week we will back on good terms. I still love you, but I don’t like you very much right now.


P.S. Yes, I realize I can watch it online but sitting at my computer for 2 hours sounds miz.

P.P.S. I will stab anyone who writes any spoilers in the comments. Thanks!

My TiVos are being whiny bitches. They're not connecting to the network and are all what network? we don't see any network. And my laptop is all idiots, it's right there. I'm connected to it. And naturally this means it doesn't have any show information to know to record Glee or Parenthood next week. They've been playing this game for several months now, and I am getting really tired of it. The only thing that is saving them right now from me taking a baseball bat to them is that they will be recording LOST on Sunday. Not that I really need them to as I'm planning on planting my ass on the couch for five hours but still.

I don't watch Grey's anymore, but a co-worker told me this mronign how amazing the finale was! I felt the same way about last season's Criminal Minds fact, I'm STILL not over it.
