This Was Me Two Days Ago

Okay, we're about to do this great Thanksgiving Feast, but in the meantime my DVD player died right before the party.

So don't be fooled by how old the lady above looks. Really, this was me two days ago. (The mention of co-axial jacks was particularly apt.) Who writes the directions for these techno-toys anyway?

thanks to High Calling Blogs for the lead on this comic relief

What a fun-loving lady to make a video like this.

She's faring a lot better than I would with all those cords.

Hilarious! Not that I'm one to say that I have all my electronic skills sharpened razor-like. But I do have a brother-in-law that does this sort of thing for a living. He's on speed dial.

Very funny! And it makes me so glad to have a techno-savvy husband, otherwise that would be me in a few weeks.

Joy... I've watched it a few times. And, yes, rolling, rolling... :)

Nancy... isn't she dear?

Nikki... oh, the social commentary. Yes, yes, yes.

Erin... good sport, yes? I thought she was very funny.

Billy... I laughed about the speed dial thing!

A Musing... I'm kind of techno myself, but honestly the written instructions are a foil. I just started plugging stuff in. But I didn't try the microwave. (Oh, wait... I don't HAVE a microwave. :)

Alease... I added a link to the phrase "this comic relief". Maybe you can click through from there. Hey, great to hear from you!

Really good, funny. Yes, that reminds me of myself, even today. And that also reminds me that I need to follow through on this, finally!
