Just Say No to Television?

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.

Why don't you come to Minneapolis to hang out, instead of watching TV? Are Dawson's Creek reruns still on on TBS in the morning? You should get into that again, especially after the reunion. Teenage drama is awesome.

Cable TV is a necessary evil if you're a sports fan. I need CN8 (local sports channel) to see my Flyers games. Of course this season there were no Flyers games. Grumble.

You know I love my TV. At one point I had 19 channels. 5 which were worth watching. I realized that I didn't miss the channels until I would go over to someone's house and see I show I forget existed. Now I have over 100 channels. But there are still times that there is nothing on TV.
