We’re having a Superbowl party this weekend. For the most part it will be the members of our regular D&D group. In preperation for this I went ahead and ordered cable TV. I don’t mind watching games in fuzzyvision, but I imagine most people – such as our guests – have more discriminating standards.
Today the cable guys hooked me up and I got my first taste of cable TV in five years. I wondered if the long break from television would make the thing seem more new and alluring. My reaction? Meh. I obviously haven’t missed much. I looped through the channels once and not a single thing caught my eye. I can’t believe I spent my teenage years watching this stuff.
I’m going to cancel it. But not until the Superbowl is over. :)
