Turn On the Idiot Box

I’m getting Cable.  Actually, were it not for the cable guy never showing up yesterday between the hours of 10:00 A.M. and 12:00 P.M. I would already have it (yeah I used a double-negative… jealous?!).  The magical day is now Saturday.  There was once a time where I would say proudly and self-righteously “Oh I don’t haaaaave a TV (but please, keep telling me about this popular reality show).”  But then at some point I realized that a little thoughtless entertainment now and then wouldn’t be the end of the world and so I got a beat up set with rabbit ears on top.  It was kitchy and I could justify it.  “Well I miss the Simpsons.  They’re both high art and low art you know?”  And now here I am actually willing to pay some a-hole corporation a tight sum every month because I really want to see if Leanne wins on Project Runway.  Don’t judge me.

  2. T.V. is so AWESOME! If you want, I can give you all the tips on t.v. watching. I can even teach you how to use your remote, including programing all your “favorite” t.v. stations. That way, your brain can totally relax and not even have to remember what stations you like!
