William Carlos TiVo

March 17, 2009

This Is Just To Say
I have purchased
the HD TiVo
that was on
the Web site

and which
I should probably
have saved
for when I have more than six HD channels.

Forgive me
it was a refurbished unit
so cheap
and so awesome.

(My boyfriend bought it so we could reap the full bounty of uniting my HDTV with his Netflix account. What does it say when your first purchase as a couple is something that will let you watch ancient Terry Jones specials on the lives of medieval peasants?)

    What a delightful poem! But my heart really went pitterpat at the mention of Terry Jones specials on the lives of medieval peasants. Those are relevant to my interests.

    Look on the bright side — when you’re not recording in HD, your capacity goes through the roof!
