fucking friends who needs them

Half my fucking day was wasted trying to figure out how to get things transferred from Tivo to videocassette. Its been on my list of things to do for the past year and a half, but Id been put off by the enormity of the task. You see, I tried early on, when we first got Tivo, and eventually got frustrated and gave up. Id tried about ten different ways and I just couldnt get it to work. And, since then, Ive just let the task build up in my mind to Herculean proportions.

I would have been happy waiting until this kid that Linettes carrying around in her belly got old enough to figure it out for me, but Id fucked up and promised my friend Jeff Kay that Id send him the last few episodes of The Sopranos and Deadwood.

Jeff called me last week from what he and his family were calling a camping trip, and he was pissed off. Apparently, the campground they pulled their air-conditioned trailer into only offered basic cable, so they couldnt get HBO on the TV theyd brought with them. So, in an act of desperation, he called me from his cell phone to ask me to Tivo his shows. Being a good friend, I said yes and hoped that hed forget.

But he didnt forget. Apparently hes obsessed with counting all the naughty words that get said in each episode of Deadwood and he just cant let go. The emails started almost immediately upon their return to civilization.

So, there was no way out of it. This afternoon, I scooted the TV away from the wall, dusted away the cobwebs, and got to work. It took a few hours, but Im proud to say that Ive finally got his fucking tape done

And now I know exactly who to turn to first when I need a kidney.

I have never in my life done this much work for a friend. Ever.
