I am not sure I have ever talked about the fact that I don’t have cable TV. Since I left home at 17, I have never paid for cable. I watch fuzzy network stations with rabbit ears. I often feel like I am the last person in the good old USofA without cable tv. Seriously! Someone please feel free to pipe in and let me know I am not the last one standing.
Occasionally, I find myself longing to watch Law & Order marathons or plopping my kids in front of Noggin all day or flipping to HGTV to look at a bunch of houses that only serve one purpose – to make other houses feel bad. But then I snap back to reality and enjoy not having the lure of TV sucking away hours of my day. I enjoy not adding one. more. bill. to our proudly tiny stack of them.
But then…THEN. I read this post in my reader and was all, “Wait? what’s Hulu? What’s Miro?” So I did it. I typed in www.hulu.com and I have been sucked in. I can watch hilarious late night television shows without the ads while I fold laundry. I can watch Law & Order reruns while my kids have nap time and quiet time.
I am seriously in trouble. As if I needed one more excuse to have the computer on.
