turns out our spontaneous electronics purchase is only cool when it's turned off. the picture freezes, tivo misses whole portions of "the bachelor" and when chuck investigated DIY fixes on those oh-so-helpful and techie message boards ["tivo is stupid!" "you're stupid!" "i like twizzlers!"] he found that this is a common problem. now we have to wait until friday for another cable guy to "fix" it. want to watch live tv? psh. we'd be better off creating in our own youtube dance off.
bad news, right? only kind of. i simply let go of the monday night television that rules my week. it was all very yoga-y. no bachelor, none of the city, no gossip girl, no one tree hill. i'm not even going to watch them online. well, for now.
hasta la pasta, suckoids.
instead i ate waffles and stared at the internet. a much better use of my time.
