in need of a fix

hello, my name is cats and i'm a tv-aholic.

so, the cable guy doesn't come until sunday to flip a switch to turn on our cable. we've been in our little apartment since last thursday and without television ever since. last night i told hubby that i couldn't wait until sunday and his comment was that he hated to admit how much of a difference it would be in our lives to have television back.

when you have two small kids the tv can be your only form of entertainment. we've been renting lots of movies and i pulled out the season 4 of M*A*S*H dvd that i bought hubby years ago, but it's not the same. i missed er last night and i miss the daily show on comedy central. i even miss watching the kids' cartoons with them.

but not having cable also means not having the news. thank God i'm back on-line or i wouldn't know anything about the world. sharon being sick... miners dying... etc... and since i've been sick these last few days or dead tired from moving all i've wanted to do is veg in front of the boob-tube for a little while.

and then there is the fact that our cell phones get no signal at the new place which is set right between two mountains. i've become way too reliant on technology to be connected to others. i never called people on our home phone... in fact if it weren't for dsl i wouldn't even have a home phone.

ah well... it isn't too terribly bad here. at least i'm no longer putting $30 worth of gas in my tank everyday to make the commute from the hotel (which had cable and an indoor pool) and the prince and princess slept through the entire night last night for the first time in i can't remember how long. and the cold is subsiding and the workers will begin on the house by monday...

reminds me of a song by Eric Idle

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...

And...always look on the bright side of life... Always look on the light side of life...

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.

And...always look on the bright side of life... Always look on the light side of life...

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.

So always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your terminal breath

Life's a piece of shit
When you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
You'll see it's all a showKeep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

And always look on the bright side of life...Always look on the right side of life...
(Come on guys, cheer up!)
Always look on the bright side of life...Always look on the bright side of life...
(Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
Always look on the bright side of life...
(I mean - what have you got to lose?)
(You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing.What have you lost? Nothing!)Always look on the right side of life...

think i'll go rent some monty python.

God's peace y'all

That's one of the best numbers in Spamalot on broadway!

Any idea how long it will take the workers to complete the work on the house?

You all remain in my prayers!

Is not the time for me to tell you I still don't have television yet? But I'm a freak and we both know it. Poor thing...
