No TV and I'm Feeling Alright

Conan O'Brien and E.T

It suddenly dawned on me today that I have been without any television for over a month. I never got cable or satellite when I moved, in order to save some cash. Nor did I purchase any rabbit ears. I look about me and everything is alright. I still feel connected. I'm getting more news and sports on-line now as a result. And, as a matter of habit I'm still getting a newspaper most days.

The good thing is there are now no pointless nights channel surfing. Not that I mindlessly surfed that often, but I will admit that most nights the television was usually on something (even if I wasn't watching). Usually sports or news. I quit watching most television shows years ago. I did watch a movie (DVD) the other night. On my computer.

So what does all of this mean? I'm not entirely sure. But, I think my brain has been working a little better these days. I seem to have ideas popping up continually about all sorts of things. I read even more than I did before, too. I'd go outside more, but it's still acting like winter out there. What is that about anyway? I'd take some global warming now, please.

I think I'm going to keep this no television arrangement up for as long as I can...
