HOUSTON WE DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM

After another hour of fiddling with VCR, DVD and TV, we have solved the problem.

1. Put back the old TV connected to the VCR.

2. Put the new TV beside it and connect that to the DVD.

3. Forget about it all and go to the movies tomorrow.

4. Do all of the above before we have cocktail hour.

5. Buy more gin for the cocktail hour.

6. Stop drinking the Bombay and we might get the first two right.

You are funny in the company of a little gin.

Now here's the proper solution. Put the video recorder and the DVD in the bin, buy a trowel/motorbike/guide book to your home town/box of paints and pad of cartridge paper/a map with directions to your local museum/art gallery etc., go outside and find something more interesting to do with your life. Telly's crap enough the first time around without having to record it and watch it all over again. It's a simple equation: DVD + bin = Liberation. It's obvious once you know how.

Buy more gin and forget about your troubles....

I hope you get this problem sorted before the winter rains hit. You'll be stuck inside with nothing to watch. Because it's footy season and I can't think of anything worse than watching footy. Or any other sport.

You could pop over and Name That...Thing on my blog.
Or watch paint dry :P

Andrew, not even you would be safe with me in the company of a lot of gin.

I'll have you know Fleetwood, while watching tele, I can crochet a rug, read a book, sew up a dress and drink. I can also draw, paint, blog and drink. And I can drink too.

Bella, the voice of sanity and with the empty bottles I can belt Fleetwood for sport.

River, I will watch football the day they wear boots with sharpened spikes and it turns into a real blood sport. My main concern is trying to tape Stargate Atlantis on Thursday but I think I've got it covered.

Jayne, name that thing, sounds like a marriage quiz and I find paint drying is very relaxing especially if it's drying all over Lord Hughes.

Brian Hughes said...

Belted and covered with paint by a drunk witch. 'Scuse me...I'm off for a cold shower.

River said...

Oooh! Atlantis! I'm visiting my daughter on the weekend, i'm hoping she'll put Atlantis on my computer for me. Then I can watch it like I do SG1 while waiting for blogs to load.

JahTeh said...

Fleetwood, the things we do to amuse you. Pay us and we'd do a lot more.

River, I'm doing a meme, name 10 fictional characters you wouldn't toss out of your bed and Daniel Jackson is right up there.

Brian Hughes said...

Would you accept Greenshield Stamps?

River said...

You want Daniel Jackson?
Get in line.
BEHIND me.......
And I'll have Jack O'Neil too.

JahTeh said...

No, because you probably counterfeited them or it's a Roman version in stone.

River, I'll give you Jack but I'm having Col. Shepherd.
