About a month ago I gave up coffee and TV. For years I had been drinking 1 large coffee every morning M-F and it was delicious but I didn’t like feeling jittery and crashing in the afternoon. So I quit cold turkey, got some extra sleep the first week and started feeling better pretty quickly. Not waking up with caffeine withdrawal symptoms means not wanting to kill the world every morning and that’s a win for everybody.
The other prong in my purification plan was to replace Time Warner Cable TV with free Over-The-Air network TV via an antenna. I got a small indoor antenna which, according to Antennaweb.org, would allow me to pick up all the networks. But when I hooked it up I only got 1 channel… Telemundo!!! in stunning high definition.
So, I’ll be getting the DVD for the final season of LOST when that comes out. I hear the show is getting even crazier and fans are increasingly wondering how they’re going to tie it up. I have no doubt I want to finish what I started. It’s the same rationality that got GW re-elected in 2004. The war was already a crazy mess but the public wanted him to finish what he started. We know how that turned out.
Kidding aside, I’ve become quite fond of the characters and the storytelling in Lost. And as a David Lynch fan I don’t mind some loose ends as long as it’s a good ride getting there.
BTW, I put a new theme on the blog… what do you think?
