Are you a deleter?

For all you TiVo fanatics out there, of which I'm one, when you've watched a program that's recorded do you immediately delete it or not? In our house we call Jim "the deleter" because he just randomly and arbitrarily deletes programs without any regard to whether everyone who may have wanted to watch that program has had a chance to do so or not. Can you tell I'm bitter?

I, on the other hand, can't stand to press that delete button. What if I want to watch that same show at some other time in the future? Much better for the TiVo brain to decide for me when it should be deleted.

On another TiVo topic, what do you have on your To Do list? Just for tomorrow, Thursday, we have 17 shows that are set to record!!! Because I know you're dying to know here's the list: Project Runway, Dora the Explorer, The Wonder Pets, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, 30 Minute Meals, Full House (twice), Arthur, Cyberchase, 30 Minute Meals (again and again...that's 3 times in one day), The Most Extreme (a weird Animal Planet show that Jackson likes), Survivor (of course), Grey's Anatomy (of course!), ER (why? I don't know), The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, $40 a Day (Rachel Ray gets way too much of my TiVo time). What's on your To Do List? I wanna know.

If I think Jason will want to see something that I've watched, I mark it as "save until I delete" and that gives it a little green circle next to it. I did that over the summer when I had time to watch stuff. Most the time, we pretty much know what we can and cannot watch by ourselves.

My TiVo is overflowing, and I have everything from Ellen to Project Runway to Laguna Beach to Grey's

17 shows, you beat my record. I save shows I think are really good. I still have a couple from last fall that I like to watch. But usually, I'll delete once I've seen it. Full House, aahh the memories.

I used to record much more than I do now. I think for Thursday night it was Survivor, CSI and Grey's.... just a piddly three.... but Wed night there's 6 or so...

I'm a deleter... I seriously think I am OCD about it though. I hate having too much stuff out there... this even goes into my email. I don't even like having my mailbox be more that 1% full at any given time. It's weird. My Shows: Greys, House, American's Next Top Model, Desperate Housewives, and my new one Heroes... VERY good!

I don't have TiVo (it would just be another thing I can procrastinate with)but if I did, I would TiVo Project Runway, America's Next Top Model and Top Chef. Maybe Dr. Phil and Oprah but that would be about it. I am with Jackson on the Most Extreme Animal Planet show, it is pretty cool!
