WTF. One Demand says I ordered a movie yesterday while I was at work. And watched 23 minutes of it. I am quite sure that Smooshie did not order this movie. Did someone break in my house and watch 23 minutes of The Collector?! I am really freaked out.
On Demand I mean.

Could Smooshie maybe have rolled over onto the remote control? I once woke up in the middle of the night, freaked out by the voices I heard in the living room, and it turned out that, in the midst of a fight, the cats had accidently activated the remote control.

did you switch tuners recently? someone might have a box that's still registered to you (I don't know how this actually works)

Mystery solved. After spending over an hour on the phone with my cable company and speaking to two different idiots, one of them told me that contrary to what I calculated based on the time left on the 24-hour rental (that the movie was ordered at 11:40 am yesterday when I wasn't home), they are showing that it was ordered at 7:40 pm, my time. And I just now realized that they are totally correct, I saw the time left on the 24 hour rental and miscalculated the time it was ordered. I was home at 7:40 and the TV was on, but I wasn't sitting in front of it or paying attention to it, and I shut it off at 8 pm when I went out which makes perfect sense as the movie was ordered at 7:40 and was only "watched" for 20 minutes. So I think, yeah, that Smooshiw must have turned it on, or I did somehow without realizing it. I wasn't buying that Smooshie turned the TV on, ordered a movie, and turned the TV off, but this scenario seems plausible.

Which, by the way, makes me the third idiot I've had to deal with today.
