Our week of diary-keeping for the Nielsen people ended Wednesday night. I'm afraid that none of the exotica (The Bachelor, Survivor, etc.) got any votes from us. In fact, if you look at the evening logs, it's really boring. Local news at 5:00pm, ABC news at 5:30pm, local news again at 6:00pm, the News Hour from 6:30-7:30pm, and (for me) Sportscenter as background noise till 10:00pm. After that it's local news again and then off to read for an hour or so with no TV. Mom is slightly more interesting in the evening; she watches 24, The West Wing, ER and Judging Amy.

My Timex watch turned out to be replaceable, so the Native American watchband now has a bright shiny one (with BIG numbers, as the watchmaker sarcastically pointed out) attached. The Longines is still waiting for a back-ordered part, and the Accutron has had its band adjusted so it no longer breaks the back of my hand while rolling up or down car windows.

I don't think you are exactly the kind of family they are looking for. Congratulations.

Nah, Nielsen's impartial. The people who should like me are the local ABC and CBS affiliates and national ABC. ;)

Imagine the Nielsen company when they received my information in the 70's. I watched reruns of the Partridge Family every night, then went to bed!!!
(Dreamt of Keith Partridge, truth be known!)
