    I thought they diconnected my Directv about a month ago. I paid it up and called to get it turned on and she told me it was never interrupted. I turned it on(Hadn't tried) and it was on.

    I went a month not watching TV because of a storm and a late bill payment. Silly ME!:o

    I go through periods of no TV, no movies... just books & newspapers. During those times I think that I'd never miss TV.

    Then I end up going overboard and immersing myself in nothing but TV again for a while. It's like people who suffer from the yo-yo effect when dieting... it's either feast or famine with no happy balance.

    I once got some points on my driving license and was told at the fines office I was banned till I retook my test, due to being a new passer and achieving so many points on my license.

    I was angry and kept driving. Later on I found out the guy at the fines office was wrong and I wasn't a new passer, had passed my test a month before the law came in, that I could have driven all the way through. Luckily I did :)

    I had to Google to see who that is since I usually catch my morning news on the radio. Most of the time I'm running out the door as it is let alone flipping the TV on.

    I wake 2 hrs early so I can check my email and schedule. I watch the news and have my daily coffee. I check my favorite forums and do a little clipmarking. Its a routine I enjoy.

    I have the next two days off(my Weekend). I will try to find some more calendar fodder about scifi.

    Since your DirecTV is up again....

    The second season of Torchwood (or "Series 2" as our friends across the pond say) is set to premiere on BBCA January 26 at 9:00pm Eastern.

    The new Rambo movie isn't already out? Jeez... that thing has been hyped for so long that I thought it had already come & gone.

    I doubt that I will go see it. Might rent it if I get bored but probably will wait till its on TV

    Speaking of Rambo, this must be a bit embarrassing for Stallone...

    I'm not sure which is worse... that a movie like Meet the Spartans did so well or that Kevin Sorbo's acting career finds himself acting in movies like Meet the Spartans.
