Talk to yourself about projects you want to do. Mutter about conversions, brainstorm, etc.


Anything to keep a low-voiced monologue going enough to keep her from completely getting into the movie.


She'll eventually just change the channel.


Warning - she may indicate that she's not going to continue watching the movie by chucking the remote at your head.

Uh... Groggy... What time is it? I seem to have been in a coma for the last 20 hours or so...


If only we could come up with a happy compromise; like combining the Romance genre with serial-killer flicks:


Hannibal and Prejudice


The Silence of the Debutantes


Jane Mansfield


Emma Todd


Halloween Persuasion


The Sense of the Lambs


Scary Northanger

You could always just put a parental lock on the "offensive" channels:

OMG, I hadn't thought of that. Hilarious! Until my wife tries to watch one of those channels.

Depends on how you do it - "I don't know honey, the system's not working right - I can't seem to remove this lock. It might be time for that HD unit now."


Having to watch the occasional chick flick in return for a 52" Plasma HD Flat Screen and new HD DVR might not be such a bad trade off.


Of course, I'm lucky - my wife likes sci-fi almost as much as I do. The worst of her shows I have to sit through is Nip Tuck and Las Vegas, or the occassional Julia Robert's movie. She does, however, complain when my son and I watch Pinky and the Brain.

I'm lucky, My wife and I are gamers, we find our entertainment on our computers, and we both watch the same TV shows: Lost, Battlestar Galactica, and Dr. Who.

Anything else we might want to watch we catch on-line ie: I watch The Sarah Connor Chronicles and she watches Grey's Anatomy.

Come to think of it though, our TV hasn't been turned on since the season finale of Lost.

What no Pride and Predator (vs. Aliens) in widescreen with THX surround sound?!



Now that was one good Jan Austin novel.


The only problem I have it is that the Aliens would crash the ball. Not only would they dance with Mr & Mrs. Bennetts daughters, but they would impregnate them with alien seeds pods. Then, what would Mr. Darcy do? Not like they had Colonial Marines back then.
