TV's warm glow...fading...fading...

Our cable box is dying. Since it is a descrambler via which we were getting some channels we weren’t paying for, we can’t complain to the cable company. We are gradually losing all of our cool channels (HBO, Showtime, and the like), which is particularly vexing because the Six Feet Under season finale is this coming Sunday.

After that, we are going to disconnect the box and try to go without cable/satellite for as long as we can stand it. That’s right, you heard it here first! The Blah Blahs are giving TV the finger!

Until we go crawling back and pay some outrageous amount for a dish or something. Dang these modern contraptions!

Perhaps while we are TV-less, I will read Four Arguments for the Elimination of Television. (For those of you that click on the link, be sure to scroll down for some of the reviews of the book. It’s interesting to see what some people who actually don’t watch TV have to say about it.) Maybe that will strengthen my resolve!

I actually don’t think this is a bad thing. Theoretically, I will be able to spend more time talking my husband’s head off in the evenings, and how can that be wrong?
