Waste time more productively.

Today, on the day when I really wanted to get started on practicing for the DJ competition, Mum decided it would be a good idea to change the Sky package from sports (which are good for no-one) to Movies (which are truly important in a socio-cultural climate change kind of way). And telling Sky to turn on the Sky+ thingy at the same time, so that we can record stuff.

This was a really bad idea for my whole productivity scene, because it meant I spent the entire day finding things that Marisa might like to watch (or I might like Marisa to watch) when she gets here and telling it to record them. Including but not limited to:

  • Addam's Family Values
  • House
  • Peep Show
  • American Dad
  • Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps
  • Lost
I've discovered that Sky+ is the ultimate in time-wasting technology. Usually when telly watching, there's nothing on at the time you want to watch telly, and conversely all the good stuff is on when you're busy doing actual real life. So if you tell it to record a shit-load of stuff that's good, you can watch it when you have other real-life stuff that you want to put off stuff to do.
