Don’t judge me but I’m spending this last day alone with my cable TV. Tomorrow I have to break up. We won't need New York Time Warner Cable TV while we live in Japan.
I know I have a cable TV problem. I spend way too much time watching TV on a normal day. I've binged and watched three seasons of a show in one sitting. I've watched hours of people buying tiny houses, and others looking to upgrade to bigger ones. Who thinks watching people buy abandoned storage units and clean them out is exciting, or enjoys watching hour after hour of true murder who-done-its? I do! I'm not proud of this but I grew up in the TV era and it is like a comfort food to my soul.
And it's not all bad. I actually learn a lot. I find out historical facts when watching American Pickers and legal issues from Law and Order. I didn't know about the Tiny House trend that is sweeping the country--until I found the TV series on the subject.
Knowing that tomorrow I go cold turkey and pull the plug on my old friend, I will spend today (our last for a long time) in a bad-TV marathon--trying to get my fill of Halloween-inspired ghost stories, DIYers, house hunters, flea market flippers, Law and Order reruns and other surprise findings. I just finished watching Cockney’s Vs Zombies (a fine piece of cinema).
Tomorrow is the season premier of The Walking Dead and yet I will be strong and spend this last day watching until my eyes bleed--knowing that I won't be there to welcome back Rick and his wearied group, but I can do it!
Just don't try to call or expect me on Facebook today. I'm pretty sure I have a problem, but I want to be alone with my friend.
