First of all Jason and I love our new apartment...... so much happier and lighter and so much less mold. (that's right, the first apartment had a bit of a mold issue) PLUS we have reliable internet and tv.
When we signed up for this apartment we were informed that we would get cable and thought that was FANTASTIC since we were just pretending we had any kind of tv with Everybody Loves Raymond dvds...... then we hooked up the tv and found that there were only 7 channels (including QVC and KSL-Salt Lake news and BYU). It was all good; we had the 4 main channels and were living the high life with Regis and Kelly in the morning.
After dinner the other night we decided to make some Rice Krispy Treats (since we have a few boxes of cereal) to take to some of our neighbors (to make friends). We had a fun visit--they are fun people, he loves golf and she smiles a lot so we like them. (I know you're wondering what this has to do with our cable situation, but there IS a connection, PROMISE!)
We sat down and talked for a while and then the topic drifted to their tv that they have to hit sometimes (about every 10-15 minutes) to make the fuzziness go away. Then Jason made a comment about the "cable" and how it was funny that we only have 7 channels yet they say we have cable. They looked at him kinda funny and said "We get over 60 channels." Our mouths dropped open. What?
Before the night was over our new friends were at our house fixing our tv (which was hooked up wrong with all the chords in the back) and now we get to watch What Not to Wear, So You Think You Can Dance, the campaign saga, and so much more....... now we can waste lots more time in front of the television! Can life get better?? I submit that it cannot.
The moral to this story is: Take treats over to people's houses and get cable tv.
