Geek Squad

I've had something bugging me for a very long time but until this weekend it hadn't made it's way to the top of the to-do list.

I'm talking about this

That is our gigantic pile of remote controls. There are a lot of them, aren't there? The crazy thing is that we use every single one. Ever since we had our theater system installed we have been meaning to get a universal remote and replace the many remotes with just one. That was 3 years ago, about time we took care of this, don't you think?

With our purchase of the universal remote at Best Buy we had the option of having their Geek Squad come over and program it. (for an extra $150) I laughed at them, I don't need their Geek Squad, I married the Geek Squad.

Within an hour of our purchase the mountain
of remotes was gone and was replaced by this

Isn't it gorgeous?

I love having my very own Geek Squad.


  1. That's the kind of thing that would make me happy too!

  2. Thanks for the nice compliments (Is geek a compliment? When it saves $ 150 it is). I thought the new remote would just replace the 5 we had but it's so much more. It can macro multiple commands to the different units so you can do 3 things with one button. That's change I can believe in.

  3. I need a geek at my house and yes Steve, it is a compliment.
