leverage team carnival

(no subject)

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*
