Living In A Survivor Time Warp

Survivor: One World (season twenty-four) aired February 15th.  My honey and I reluctantly watched the first episode only because we were getting new HD cable boxes and didn’t want to chance losing the beginning of the current season.  It’s a good thing we took the precaution because the new boxes wiped out our savings.  We lost a lot in that purge including my two appearances on The Doctor Oz Show and an assortment of network and cable shows the family had been meaning to watch.

One World collided with Survivor: Thailand (season five 2002) which arrived via UPS in the same time frame. Getting to know thirty-two people simultaneously seemed an overwhelming challenge. As such, we abandoned our fledgling interest in current tribes Salani and Manono and devoted ourselves fully to Chuay Gahn and Sook Jai.

Episode four of Survivor: One World airs  tomorrow night in real time and Survivor: Amazon (season six 2003) is in transit.  I’m hoping UPS arrives with it today before my honey comes home from work.  Since there’s no dinner prepared for tonight, the presentation of our new (old) season of Survivor would undoubtedly be welcomed and the absence of dinner forgiven without reservation.   If not, we just might step out of our self-imposed time warp, join the real world, and catch up with what’s current.

I hear a truck outside… could it be UPS? One can only hope.
