Television, Télévision, Fernseher
I can watch tv again! We got a new digital TV and an antenna-ish thing, so now, for the first time in months, I can watch television while I putz around the house. And you know what I found out? You can see Aljazeera on Channel 12. I think a lot of people think that it's something it's not. It's like BBC, only centered around Northern Africa. Interesting. I also watched the Tyra Banks show, and I was surprisingly moved.
I don't know if we will get cable, because I really don't like Comcast and I am opposed to their efforts to "acquire" MSNBC. But, hey, I've got public television, Big Bang Theory, and all the Spanish channels I could want.
Some might ask, why watch tv when you could read a book? And I'll tell you why. Because I don't read books; I fall into books, which makes it impossible to get anything else done. If there were a Readers Anonymous, I would be a prime candidate. But I feel comfortable having the tv on while I do chores, homework, etc. It's like a friend that you can ignore, who will always keep talking to you, and occasionally tell you something funny or informative.
Today, for example, I started a project to build modular storage in my closet and get my dresser our of our bedroom. So far, so good, and I think Alex will really appreciate an eensy bit more space, poor dear.

Thank you for not being an anti-TV snob.

We're hoping to move to netflix- between them and the internet, we should be able to watch all the shows we normally watch for $60 less a month.

I don't watch a lot of tv, but I like to sit down and watch something 8 hours a week or so. We watch The Simpsons as a family thing, beyond that there are only about 5 shows which air weekly that I like enough to watch on a regular basis.
