My Cable TV is OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. It's been out since 12:30 yesterday afternoon!!!! It's still out as of this writing! Word around town is that someone got mad at the cable co. (Adelphia) and decided to cut the main wire that runs into town. I called this morning and they assured me that it would be back on soon! Well, that was over 10 hours ago!!

    All's I know is that if it aint back on for Must See TV tomorrow night then I'm going over to my Mom's house to watch it! Hubby wants it back on too cause the Pitt-Miami game is on tomorrow night too!

    Oh what to do! I'm sitting in front of the puter right now and listening to CD's. Already read a book and flipped through old nursing magazines. Oh well.

    Light a fire in the fireplace, put on some romantic music, pour some wine and get cozy with your hubby.

    Hubby's in bed already. We don't have a fireplace, well actually we do but it's a fake one. So, I'm on the puter as we have Dial up access which is slower than molasses.

    I haven't had TV for over a year now......I am actually quite relaxed without it....People say OMG what do you do? I read...I do have a TV set...and a VCR so I can watch a movie if I choose...and I go to the BB!!!!

    Drink the wine anyways! It will take away your frustrations of having a slow puter.

    We upgraded from the antenna to a satelite this last summer but we still hardly ever have it on. We have kids and a "no tv on school nights" rule. So they look forward to the weekend to watch tv but I hardly see them watching it even then.
    Seems they are always outside playing or have their nose in a book. Whats wrong with them?

    I'd miss the puter more than the TV!

    Oh, I definitely miss the 'puter more than TV. When the cable and electricity were out because of the hurricane last month, we found the rabbit ears and hooked the TV up to the generator (I know, a waste of gas!). We could pick up the local stuff (so I didn't miss ER or CSI) but I really just wanted to check my e-mail (or check out this BB ). The electricity came back on Saturday (Hurricane Lili was on a Thursday) but the cable didn't make it back on till Monday night. Good thing I had to work that weekend!
