Break Me, Shake Me (Down No more)
A week ago my cable/internet bill came. Oh my! $138.00 for both? How much of that was the tv? Looking, pulling out phone to add up the list of items.....78$!!! Holy Hannah on Crack!
This will not do. Not do at all.
I looked up Netflicks, and Hulu Prime. Hmm, Hulu has way way way more tv content, AND movies. They were offering a free week trial, ok lets try that! The next day I woke up feeling like crud...no no dont feel sorry for me, twas my own damned fault, I ate some egg rolls that had chicken in them, and I'm allergic to chicken. Stupid, stupid me. Sigh... So, it was the perfect day to sit and knit and watch tv.
Does any one remember The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show? They have it! Watched an episode of Modern Family I missed this season. A fantastic movie, "An Ordinary Family". Tracy Takes on... and many others. All for the low low price of $7.99!
The only down side to this arrangement is that I cant figure out how to watch the NFL, but without TH to watch it with me, its just not as fun.
Today, the DVR went for a ride in George and was returned to the cable store. And now I have an entire 70$ more a month to spend on books! Yarn!
I've broken the chains binding me to cable, and couldnt be happier!
