Back to the Future

In my last post, I wrote that I was worried about the reintroduction of a television set into our home. I needn't have worried--without the cable, I may do a maximum of four laps around the dial before it sinks in that there is nothing on (I'm a slow learner). And there is no one spot that we can set the antenna where we could get all the channels, which also reduces the surfing. It really only makes sense to watch appointment TV.

So now, occasionally, instead of watching The Office, Community, 30 Rock, Chuck, Lost, or Survivor on Hulu, if I happen to be around the day of broadcast, I'll actually tune in live. It's been 10 years since we did that (about the time we bought our now obsolete TiVo). I feel so retro. I actually use commercial breaks to go to the bathroom again. I try to get the laundry started or the kitchen cleaned before 8 PM.
