Our cable converter hates me. I turned on the TV halfway through West Wing and somehow we were only getting sound, with no picture. So then I spent 20 minutes behind the TV checking cables and rewiring various parts of the set-up to isolate the problem in order to conclude that it must be our converter. We get picture fine if I hook the cable straight from the wall to the TV, but if I run it through the converter the picture goes away and we only get sound. Stupid.

Now I'm gonna have to spend hours on the phone with customer service, schedule a service call at an inconvenient time, and then be told that our converter is old and we need a new one. And I missed West Wing. Grrr. I'm gonna have to wait for a download to watch the Joshuagoodness, and I was actually looking forward to watching it tonight, asshat and all. And now I'm gonna have to watch Grey's Anatomy in real time. With commercials. *whine*

Oh, damn. I almost taped it tonight, and then I decided not to.

Awww, that sucks. And I thought it was bad when the stupid weather guy cut in for over 2 minutes to tell me about heavy rain a couple hundred miles away. :/

To be honest, it really wasn't all that great, especially compared to the last couple of weeks. There's some Joshuagoodness (and badness, you know how he gets when he's stressed) and Rob Lowe & his amazing face full of Botox. It's scary. His face doesn't move.

Oof, that's awful. I've come to the sad realization that I am physically addicted to cable TV. Your pain is beyond my ability to comprehend.

At any rate, I didn't record it last night because there was a new Simpsons (their best in many a long day), so I'm picking up the rerun tonight on Bravo if you need it.

You might want to check out Bravo tonight. A few weeks ago Bravo ran on Monday night the new episode from the previous night on NBC. It was great because I had missed the Sunday ep.
