Thoughts About Breaking UpJanuary 14, 2010
Oh, Juno. Now you've done it.
I've been thinking about breaking up for a while now. And your post has really gone and done it, I think.
(Martha Flynn, you shouldn't read this. You're not ready.)
It's time to get rid of cable.
Now, I'm not going to go whole hog, like she did. She's actually giving her TV to Michelle (which was a pretty funny Twitter exhange to witness in real time, actually), and I still have plans to watch shows sometimes, things on Hulu, movies on Amazon and iTunes. But it's just kind of ridiculous to have the whole computer system that Lala set up (an Apple Mini, so we have a hub, right there, at the TV), and not utilize it the right way.
I don't watch much TV. Maybe five hours a week, which is even less than Lala does. But I really, really, really enjoy those five hours (even though I'm famous for pausing the show and walking away eleventy-billion times during every show to do something Very Important That I've Just Remembered Needs Doing). That's so not worth the cost of cable.
I could be hanging out with family more. Reading more. Watching more movies.
It's time. (I'm SO NOT THINKING about the fact that Big Love just started. Can you get that on iTunes?)
What do you think?
