How I Knew it Was Time to Go to Bed
Wednesday, November 23, 2005

I was watching War Stories last night and I decided to switch on the commentary because Alan is SO FUNNY in that one. I pick up my DVD remote and start pressing buttons, but nothing happens. I bang on it (why do we do this? It accomplishes nothing, yet anytime a remote or flashlight or something stops working, we bang on it. Crazy.) and of course it doesn't work. I hit the power button and then the DVD player turns on and I realize I'm not watching my DVD, I'm watching the Firefly marathon on SciFi!!

Silly me.

That's hilarious. That's how you know you're into your show.

You're too funny. :)

Cannot say I did the exact same thing. But I have two Panasonic remotes that look almost identical (one for the 5.1 surround set, and one for the DVD recorder). Just the other day my heart almost stalled when I watched Serenity, for the umptiest time, and the DVD stops responding! I thought someone had unplugged my life! After uttering a few Chinese expletives (the kind that would never make it past the rating commission, had they been in English), I realized I was thumping the wrong remote, again. Pfew. :)

Unbelievable! I did almost the same thing...Turned on the tv, was surprised the DVD was running, wondered where the commentary bit I hadn't heard before was tucked away in my DVD, tried to rewind and finally realized...yay! Marathon! More converts on the way to FFF!

Ahaha, that's amazing. I wish I'd known about the marathon so I could direct the few hopefuls around here to it.

Aaarrrghh!! I didn't even know they were running a marathon!! And now my DVD set is, once again, out of my hands and I need dialog help. Grrr. Just proves I need to pay better attention to the TV listings.

yay! Extra points to me!

Not only should I have been taping it (I've got all but a couple of the eps taped, BTW) I was also supposed to be taping NCIS for my grandparents but I got completely sidetracked by Fireflygoodness that I forgot. Shame on me!

Yes, silly you. The question is why weren't you taping the marathon (even though you own the dvd set) like a good little obsessive bc?
