Wander This World Name

Here is where I got the name of my blog from...

My friend from college Sean and I saw him at a really small club in Biloxi in 1996. His second CD Lie To Me had just come out. There were about 50 people there. What a great concert!

I can't believe it's been 13 years!

I haven't seen Sean since around 2001. The last I heard, he was living in a writing commune in Canada somewhere, and he had gotten married for the second time.

This Season's Tough DVR Choices

At the beginning of every TV season, I face tough choices. My DVR will record two and only two shows at once. Three times during the week, I have at least three TV shows that I'd like to record on at the exact same time.

Here are my choices and my decisions.

Wednesdays at 8 pm Choices:
Criminal Minds (CBS)
Glee (Fox)
Modern Family (ABC)

Decision: I would love to support Modern Family because it has a gay couple, but Glee is even more gay than Modern Family so I also want to support that show. As far as Criminal Minds, that's a must see. I have decided to DVR the first two and watch Modern Family via ABC's web site.

Thursdays at 7 pm Choices:
Survivor (CBS)
FlashForward (ABC)
The Vampire Diaries (The CW)
Bones (Fox)

Decision: Survivor is a must see. Bones is definitely the least of the four. That leaves FlashForward and The Vampire Diaries. I sampled episode two of The Vampire Diaries the week before FlashForward debuted. It's interesting only for the shirtless scenes of Ian Somerhalder, which I can find online. I have decided to DVR Survivor and FlashForward.

Sundays at 7 pm Choices:
Jonas (Disney)
Criminal Minds - repeat of earlier episodes (A&E)
The Amazing Race (CBS)

Decision: This is an easy choice. Jonas is immediately out. That leaves the other two shows. Done.


What would you do? Do you have any similar dilemmas?
