dear diary

Back in July, I posted about my invitation to be a Nielsen household for a week. This weekend I received another phone call from Nielsen asking me if I would be willing to participate for another week, starting November 20; this time they specifically are interested in my experiences as a PVR (TiVo) owner, and are sending a diary designed to make it easier to note the things I record as well as watch during the week.

Then today I got an email from GLCensus Partners asking me to participate in a special three-day initiative in partnership with Nielsen to measure the television viewership habits of the GLBT community, beginning the end of this week.

For someone who six months ago watched almost no TV at all, I’m now apparently an important influence on the television-watching possibilities of the American public. Mwa-ha-ha-ha!
