I Think I'm in the Middle of a Seinfeld Episode.

By: The Dude on the Right
For the last couple of days, and it is approaching a couple of days, I don't have TV. Some of my goals this summer included limiting my TV watching, but for over 24 hours I haven't had a choice. For whatever reason my cable, and only my townhouse's cable, went out yesterday (okay, my internet is affected too, but I have figured out a backup way to post stuff, so I can still sort of post things - my "Ocean's 13" review will be posted tomorrow come hell or high water). It's been over 24 hours now with no TV, and the only thing I can really say, right now, the only reason I miss TV is because I am paying for it (the cable folks say I will get a credit for my downtime), and missing watching some baseball games and playing BINGO on Friday, and wondering about the future.

I do know a way to get my local TV, and pretty simply it would only include a trip to my local Radio Shack, to buy an antenna (and it wouldn't even have to be a roof-top one), and then I would have my local stations, but, and I can't believe I am saying this, I am almost liking life without TV, except for one last bit of closure, or more specifically, HBO, tomorrow, because at the end of my Spring TV viewing there is only one show left I care about, one show I need to see, and that show is the last episode of "The Sopranos," and right now, I have no HBO.

If my cable company doesn't fix my TV tomorrow, on a Sunday, I will miss the one show, for the last bunch of years, that I really, really, really, really, don't want to miss, and that is the finale of "The Sopranos."  I will also miss seeing the NBA Basketball Finals where my Cavs are playing some other team, and as much as I am sort of liking not having TV right now, tomorrow is the day I need it back.

I would like to say that I have confidence in getting my TV viewing fixed by the time "The Sopranos" comes on tomorrow night, but in talking with the folks at my cable supplier (except for the dude I talked with tonight), I have many reservations about technology giving me a chance to have things fixed in a timely manner, or at least tomorrow.  The shitty part is that supposedly I had an appointment to get things fixed today, and that conversation is another, total, clusterfuck.  I think I am finding myself in the middle of a "Seinfeld" episode.

I guess, in the end, we just have to see what life gives us tomorrow. Hopefully, for me, it's at least "The Sopranos."

That's it for this one!  I'm The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
