Yeah - there is a part of me that wants the Dish. But when I had cable - years ago - you'd find an excuse - ANY excuse - to recline on the couch and watch something - ANYTHING (*"Look!! It's Aliice!!! OMG - That Mel just cracks me up!!!") *shudders.
I like the freedom I have now of knowing that I do not even bother to save the weekly TV guide that comes with my Sunday paper - there is NOTHING on TV that I am missing. 24 is over and I am done. My only use for TV these days is for the DVD's I rent.
Although I tuned in to a special on the life of Winston Churchill yesterday and it depressed me all the more The guy didn't just live history - he made it. And in the end, he wound up majorly depressed at having seen the futility of it all. A victim of several strokes, his reported last words upon his final one was something like "Enough." or "No more."
Seeing the fight yanked out from such a powerful personality just left me in all the more of a funk.
Maybe i should lay off of the lessons of history and lose myself more in TV Land's I Dream of Jeannie.
