Today's Question(s):

Lets pretend !!!

You have been offered a 1 week job (we are talking mega bucks for the week) doing "Quality Control"

Which would you be better at,something that involved:
Taste ?
Visual (looking for imperfections or typos) ?
Sound ?
Smell ?

Bonus Question:

Do you have a DVR or Tvio type of recording device on your TV ?
No.

If so, how many shows are sitting there waiting to be watched ?

With this week being the new seasons begins for so many shows,how many are scheduled to be recorded ?

Which is your busiest TV watching night ?
I don't really have a particular night that I watch TV the most, I watch football games more than anything else. At other times I watch re-runs of some of my favorite shows (Frasier, Seinfeld, etc.), or watch DVD's.


Extra Credit Question:

If a friend asked to to drive them in their car somewhere(because they were unable to drive) would you ?
Yes, but I would prefer to take them in my own car.

Last time you drove someone else's car ? It's been several years.

Today's Question(s):

Lets pretend !!!

You have been offered a 1 week job (we are talking mega bucks for the week) doing "Quality Control"

Which would you be better at,something that involved:
Taste ? I have no taste so my wife takes care of this.
Visual (looking for imperfections or typos) ? I can't see the forest because of the trees.
Sound ? I have been told I have selective hearing so this is out
Smell ? I can't smell. I used deoderant today.

Bonus Question:

Do you have a DVR or Tvio type of recording device on your TV ? No. Our cable company allows replays of shows.

If so, how many shows are sitting there waiting to be watched ?

With this week being the new seasons begins for so many shows,how many are scheduled to be recorded ?

Which is your busiest TV watching/recording night ? I watch TV on Monday night. Last night was the anticipated Two and a Half Men. All I can say is Charlie who?


Extra Credit Question:

If a friend asked to to drive them in their car somewhere(because they were unable to drive) would you ? Depends on what kind of car. If my friend happens to own an exotic then yes I am all for it. I have a friend that has a Bentley and I would love to try that car out.

Last time you drove someone else's car ? I drive our company owned car at least once or twice a week.

Last time you drove someone else's car ? A few months ago, when a friend had minor surgery and I picked her up from the doctor. I don't have a car so I drove hers.

As a musician, Id probably choose qc'ing sound.
No we dont have dvr, vito, whatever. In fact, we are using antenna only and you would NEVER EVER know it, the quality of the picture on our big screen, is totally amazing. So we dont have a million channels, maybe all of 10 and thats all we need, neither one of us really would utilize so many.
If I was asked to drive someone elses car to take them somewhere or for any other reason, yes I would, and I do. Whether because he doesnt feel like driving, or because I like that Jeep so much, yes. And yes, Ive been asked to drive other peoples cars, with or without them, for one reason or other.
I drove the Jeep this afternoon to go get an Rx.
My driving record is immaculate so.....
Lol, we did this today too, at my work (though this was another Walmart, not us). See, even managers had to join in!
Heres to the chicken dance day:
