Hello World!

I have every reason to be happy. Tomorrow night marks the return of both CSI and The West Wing in Australia. Of course, The West Wing is at the ludicrous hour of 11:00 p.m., but at least it's on, and I have a video recorder.

Speaking of which, I might not actually live until tomorrow night, because I've just forgotten to tape tonight's episode of 24. While the show never attracted me, my parents are big fans and have not missed an episode. Until now.

Whenever I forget to tape something, my mother usually reminds me of all those times she taped Star Trek episodes for me while I was at boarding school. It is at this point that I always remind her that (a) she also forgot sometimes and (b) on one notable occasion only caught the last 10 minutes of "The Visitor".

On those occasions I've usually been taping something like Neighbours or Vets In Practice, but 24 is a whole different ball game and I've heard horrific stories from all over the world about family members who failed to record the latest episode. So if there are no TrekToday updates tomorrow, you know I'm either out there trying to buy a 24 tape on the black market, or I've met a very grisly fate.
