are you kidding me?

on my way home from work i usually listen to “all things considered”…it’s calm, the speakers speak very evenly and smooth and i like it because it doesn’t get me worked up…most of the time…tonight, i was listening and beginning my wind down from the day’s events and i hear this:”tivo and dominoes have forged a patrnership”…WTF?! i can be a pretty good couch potato at times but even i was not happy to hear the next piece of the report. apparently, you can sit on your couch, watching tv and when the dominoes pizza commercial comes on , you can just select the onscreen icon and you have pepperoni and anchovies on their way in the next 30 minutes. the reporter sounded almost giddy when he said “you don’t even have to get up and go get the phone!” is this what we’re coming to? i like a little rainy day, i’ve had a long week curl up on the couch every so often but c’mon! thanks tivo and dominoes for making us even fatter and lazier…what a sparkling revelation for us. this little marketing gem makes me want to jump up (or sit on my couch) and scream for joy…as long as i don’t have to exert myself while i do it…
