There are many ways of breaking a heart. Stories were full of hearts broken by love,
but what really broke a heart was taking away its dream - whatever that dream might be.

I don't have Cable TV


All you addicts... I gave up the TV for the summer. I do NOT miss it. Sitting in my office listening to my coworker and another person talking about "American Idol" and "Dancing with the Stars". Who is going to win? Isn't she a cow? Why did he do THAT song?

I mean come on. Who really cares. The one thing this week I was upset for not seeing was the earthquakes. I know its probably overdone on CNN and other news stations. Thank you NPR for keeping me informed.

I am happy that I don't feel the stress of "keeping up to date" with whatever inane reality show is on. I plan on going without for a long time if we can handle it. Funny you used to be able to get at least public television without cable. Those days are gone.

My mind suck currently comes from Jewel Quest II, thank you very much. That being said, don't even ask me to give up my internet... oh no.. don't even. How else am I going to find fun stuff like this song about boobs? I still haven't figured out twitter yet, thankfully. AND I am all about chatting. :wink:

OK enough. Carry on you slaves to your cable distributors. I think I will read a book.


  1. ah, for a second there i thought you had gotten yourself a tivo..

    awesome, awesome invention.. i own 2, and i love em!

  2. That's ok...I've given up books for the summer.

    So we even it out. ;)

  3. Everything in moderation, Mel.

    I, personally, could care less about any sort of video game. Whether played on a television or computer. So you go ahead with that, and I'll continue making good use of my cable tv... by continuing to NOT watch "reality" television.

  4. You rock. I wish I could be so strong... nope. Most nights - kids in bed, red wine in hand I slap down in front of the tv to do some serious non thinking.
