A Bowlful of Cherries

Celebrating Matty and Noah

We won!

Our TiVo is one of our favorite possessions. We record our favorite shows, we search for favorite movies, and, ever since the last software update, we even play games, look at our photos, and get the weather report. There’s also a feature where you can guess who’s getting eliminated next on American Idol. TiVo then randomly selects a few winning entries for a weekly prize. They’ve been giving away some nice loot.

We don’t even watch AI (The Amazing Race and Lost take precedence), but one idle (get it?! 🙂 ) day, as I’m fooling around, I decide to cast a vote. Of the five people left, Paris seems weakest, and we cast our vote for her. Wednesday comes and goes, and we learn, a few days later, that Paris did indeed get booted.

Since we don’t enter many contests, and when we do, we don’t win, we didn’t think much of it. But Donna happened to check our junk mail folder, and we had an email from a TiVo representative. Nikon Coolpix 5200 You guessed it: we won! Our selection of Paris qualified us for a random drawing, and we were one of 10 winners that week.

Our prize? A Nikon Coolpix 5200. It’s last year’s model, and definitely not even close to Nikon’s top-of-the-line model, but still a sweet, sweet prize all the same!

Don’t believe us? Check it out.

W00t! Thanks, TiVo!
