Secrets and a DVR

I have a delicious secret. It is more delicious than this coke float I am having for a snack. It is way more delicious than poppyseed dressing (Jessica)!

I am not the best secret keeper. Christmas gifts kill me. I drop barely-disguised hints, then act disappointed when the recipient guesses what it is. I think this posting is the first of many hints I will post incessantly until someone just flat out figures it out.

To save myself for tonight, I am going to change the subject. I would like to tell you about my DVR. This is something that my husband got for himself, but I have quickly overtaken it. DVR is an option with digital cable and it works like TiVo. You can record shows (up to three at a time!), rewind shows you are watching, and pause the tv if the phone rings. All this for only $2.95 a month! This may be even better than ... oh, I dunno... MY COKE FLOAT?!?!?!

I am not a television watcher, but this has turned me into one! I can fastforward commercials on the shows I record. I can rewind 10 seconds at a time if I missed a word or a phrase. I can fastforward the dance part of Ellen, since it is the same every day! I watch about two hours of television a day now, all in about 36 minutes. Pretty efficient, huh?

I am sure other people have had this kind of luxury for years, but it is new to my little town and I am durn proud of it.

Um, Amanda. Is your secret what we all think it is? Am I allowed to guess yet? Because I'm sure you can imagine what we're all thinking...
