At about 1p on 2/15, I wrote this:
Okay, so living in the county means we don't have cable. Comcast doesn't reach out here. Apparently laying down thousands dollars worth of cable for 5 houses on a block isn't worth it. Therefore, if we want TV, we have to get satellite. Therefore, we would have 200 channels. Therefore, we would watch too much TV. Therefore, we would not do our chores. So....we don't have TV. We DO have a HUGE antenna on the top of the house but after that whole digital change, we can't get any stations.
Then......... after writing that last sentence, I had a thought. *thought bubble with a picture of me* Hey, wait, maybe Canada didn't switch over to digital and I CAN still use that piece of crap on the roof to get those good ole Canadian stations. Turns out that while Canadians may not be able to drive an American speed limit, they can throw some TV wave-thingies my way. Only problem....I get one station. Sitcom station and it is blurry. Like, Michael Scott is there and I can hear his voice and something about "that's what she said" but I can't see the funnies. Damn.
So, I am still in a pickle. The reason I am in a pickle is because I WANT TO WATCH THE OLYMPICS!!! Please, oh god, PLEASE! However, I don't want to go somewhere and watch it, I want to sit on my couch, with my remote and flip through the 3 channels that are showing coverage. I want to watch Oksana Baiul (or whatever tiny person is skating these days) pull off triple lutz and salchows and toe picks (I even heard there is a guy who wears swan suits....come ON). I need to see Apollo ass in that leotard. I badly crave staying up until midnight watching anything, hell, I'll even watch curling. I LOVE THE OLYMPICS. I don't know why, I just do. (Actually I do know why, it is because I watched the '94 Olympics all the time when I was in 5th grade. I even taped it and watched it all again later. I know...I was homeschooled. You only get one thing to make fun of me about though.....)
I am stuck on my farm in the county like Laura Ingalls Wilder (I am just guessing that though because I never read the books and I can't watch Little House on the Prairie but sources tell me, they didn't have TV either).
Oh and get this...even if you have the internet, you can't get coverage. US peoples can't stream Canadian TV and NBC only let's you watch if you have home TV. I am sorry but...bullshit!
Sadly, the Olympics are only 1hour and 30min from my house. I should go, obviously I have a problem. But, Tyler doesn't have his passport and is stuck in the US. I am not that big of a dork that I would go by myself. (or am I?) Whoa is me. I'll get my fix somehow though, I am determined!
