I am home sick today, which sucks, but it does allow me to catch up on some home business. Folks, brace yourselves, because:
I willingly cancelled my cable television service.
Of course there have been gaps in my life where I have gone without cable. Like the first few weeks of living in a new apartment, while I waited for the first available appointment for installation. Those were very stressful weeks. I like watching TV. A lot. I don’t just aimlessly surf the channels and settle for whatever is on. I am not that big of a loser. Instead, I devote myself to a portfolio of rivoting shows and follow their regular schedules. I have even found terrible shows that surface when it’s not “TV season.” So, during those spring/summer months when the rest of the world is excited for warm weather and grilling season, I remain dedicated to the tube. Below is a list of shows I follow, broken up into various categories:
Those that I would admit to in public:
-Curb Your Enthusiasm
-Tell Me You Love Me
Those that put me into the category of “addiction”:
-Real Housewives of the OC
-Dancing with the Stars
Admitting the following shows is my first step to recovery. Please don’t read these names aloud:
-Survivor (Yes, Nick and I are THE two viewers that still watch)
-Big Brother (No, it’s not opposite day)
-Young and the Restless (Praise the Lord, this is on a major network, so it can remain my lunchtime staple activity)
For those of you that know Nick and I, please check in mid-week to make sure we are still breathing.
