So, after years of updating our computer every two years or so because they kept failing on us, we finally decided to get a Mac. I guess they are supposed to better in that regards, so hopefully this will last us for a loooong time (or at least more than two years, which would be an improvement). I know, I know... I should have gotten a Mac long ago, especially given my photographic/desktop publishing background. If Vern gets some paperwork filled out in time, his school should be able to reimburse him for it and just tack it on to his student loans. So, instead of us owing $100,000 in student loans, or whatever, it will be $101,000. What's the difference there, really?
Now, so much to catch up on. Especially TV shows. (We have to watch our TV on the computer now, on sites like Hulu.com, since the real television didn't make the move with us.)
Here is what I am watching this year:
How I Met Your Mother
Friday Night Lights
That is 8 hours of television a week (if all the shows happen to be new). And I have to catch up on the past two weeks of everything, so that is 16 hours of television to catch up on (plus, the fact that all shows will continue to air new episodes...). Although, I don't think Friday Night Lights has started yet, and since I don't have to watch commercials, that will cut the time down a bit. So, it'll make it, like, 12 hours of TV that I have to catch up on.
So, anywho, I'm not sure how I feel about all this TV watching. I mean, I really, really enjoy watching these TV shows (as you can see, all of them are of the highest caliber of entertainment). But I have also really enjoyed NOT watching anything (except for Last Comic Standing) for the past four months. I like the quiet nights with nothing on the agenda except for a good book, a conversation with my husband, and maybe some sex. Now, with all this TV that I have to catch up on, I don't know when I'll have sex again. Instead, I'll be thinking, "Oh, I should really be watching 30 Rock right now, get off of me."
This is my life right now.
I'll update more on the rest of it later.
