that's how I feel about network television right about now. it is little more than this vast wasteland, worthy of eliot's pathetic and faded footprints....

but, come may 10, sytycd, my favorite summer tv pastime will return, and all will be forgiven and forgotten for one blissful weekly wednesday hour....

I would sure love a house elf or two over at my place to keep things tidy.
Good on you Alix, nice to get heaps of housework out the way

I'm not sure. I believe it was the most recent one, since it was on a Canadian TV site.

Just gotta luv my Cable Company. I get Canadian sports shows, but they black out American ones. I also get news from Germany and England along with the Scandinavian countries. Even Japan. Now I have nothing against these countries, but I haven't a clue of what they are talking about. Nor do I really care.

I was going to write that I don't have a television, but I actually do. It just isn't hooked up. I don't miss very much of the stuff that is on TV. I like Videos - Rick Mercer Report - CBC Television, but I watch all the episodes on YouTube.

early last year, comcast went 'digital' in our area. i lived without tv reception for over four months. i missed television for about a minute. then after a while, i discovered various ways to access tv programs on my pc for free. i had almost decided to give up television permanently, until the summer olympics came along in june. i watched the first days of the olympic games and events from my hospital room. by the time of my discharge, i was hopelessly hooked (as always happens). i quickly bought the required comcast 'box', reinstating my tv and olympic coverage at home.
to be honest, i don't know why i keep my basic tv cable today. i suppose it is because i still watch some 15 hours/week, at a cost of under $15/month, and making the change just doesn't seem worth bothering with.

i do envision my future to be completely tv free one day....:)

Morning all. Just popping in to say hello as I'm up to my eyes in alligators today! I have to bake a birthday cake (boston banana cream), get a haircut, do a small grocery shop (out of fruit and veggies AGAIN!), finish the floors, finish ironing (ick!) and somehow cram dinner in there too. Thankfully, the request was tacos, so that is easy.

No rest for the wicked, I'll see you all tomorrow perhaps if I get all this done today!

perhaps you could snag a few of pf's elves and 'spirit' them away to edmonton with you, alix. it's a Win-Win>>>you rescue the elves from being flushed down into the sewers, and you get the cleaning services and playful companionship of these delightfully impish house elves....
