mornin' and happy new year to all. hope your hangovers are sufficiently nursed by now. so given my abyssmal financial situation over the past several years, i became delinquent on my cable bill. i finally gave up 7 months ago, and just told them to cut my service, which meant i had no reception, and hence, no TV. at various points in the evening, i would become bored and frustrated with nothing to watch. this was compounded by the fact that i also had to sell my nice stereo, and had no musical outlets, either! [you can see where this is headed]... anyhow, we have TV at work. i just turned it on since my boss is away, to check out the news. i was immediately turned off! like, i really feel i missed nothing, and nothing i saw on CNN told me anything more or less than the newspaper and radio. it was just noisier and glitzier and more stressful to take in. maybe i should just leave my cable disconnected?
