I Need More TiVos!

Monday, April 18, 2011

I need more TiVos to record all of the royal wedding specials I want, plus my normal TV shows (WHY are they bringing Gossip Girl back during royal wedding week?!  It's like, I've missed it and I'm thrilled, but it's conflicting with my Lifetime TV movie William & Kate!).  I've canceled all my nonessential Season Passes (Family Guy, Rehab Addict, Passport to Europe, Family Under Construction) to minimize conflicts, but it's still going to be tough.

I can't decide who to pick for the wedding itself.  Right now I've got TLC booked, but I want to find out who is hosting.  Part of me wants to watch the BBC America broadcast, for the real British experience.  Considering I will be fast asleep in my little bed at 4am, I won't be able to flip back and forth.  Clearly, I need more TiVos.

Do any of y'all have Royal Wedding plans?  Any great specials I can't miss?  Can you help me pick who to watch for the wedding itself?  I'd love to hear about it and I'd love any help you could give me!


  1. thank you for that! i'm so glad i know what's coming on and on what channels!! yay. i love kate!

  2. Holy cow, lady. I thought I was a follower, but realized I wasn't. Fixed that problem!!! :) Am happy to be here and reading!

    I'll admit it - I have a bit of Royal Wedding Fever too. I tuned in to the Lifetime movie last night, but wasn't too impressed. Oh well. Got to start small and work my way up to the big event anyway. :)

    Also, did you design your blog? Have you thought about doing anyone else's? Mine needs a revamp and I am LOVING the way yours looks!

  3. @LL - Glad to have you! And yes, I did do my own blog; thank you! Post finals, I'd love to chat with you about whipping up something. It's really relaxing to me (and super satisfying when it turns out right, haha!). I'll drop you a line post-finals!
