I never watch television in the summer. I am just not one for gameshows, soap operas, or talk shows. Even though I didn't watch television, I can't really account for what I DID do with my time living in Iowa.
Now that I am in Grand Forks, I find myself watching television every morning. I am regressing back into a lot of my Grand Forks behaviors. First, American Movie Classics show some pretty good movies in the morning. Yesterday, AMC showed Lost in Yonkers and today they are showing Peyton Place. Peyton Place is a movie that I have seen several times before and it cracks me up. First, it so dramatic with its tawdry affairs and scandals. What was considered social suicide during Peyton Place's time is on every other television show now.
Cable television is something I could do without, yet Tim disagrees. I am trying to convince Tim that once we get to Philadelphia, we should not have cable television or at least, limit the channels. It seems to me that when I do watch television, I watch the same four channels. Tim watches FX, ESPN, and the four networks.
Maybe I'll change my tune when I get all hopped up on cable television living with my parents for a few weeks. I will try to get my fix of music videos, cooking shows, and old movies while I am hanging out in Grand Forks.
