No TV! NOOOOOOOO

Crap. The Mythbox keeled over.
Of course this would be the DAY AFTER SHAWN SOLD THE OLD BOX TO JAMIE!

He's trying to fix it, but I have a feeling that it didn't record the So You Think You Can Dance results show. meh. I'll just read about it on Television Without Pity tomorrow.


The biggest problem, though, is that now it means I can't watch PBS. How am I supposed to learn about the crazies who have ferrets? (oddly, had the show been about Cats or Dogs, I would have been like "weirdos, but I've seen it before (think Best in Show)." Not so with Ferrets apparently--I just look at the people and go "Are you high?") Or the fact that CERN really does have the particle accelerator just as described in Angels and Demons? (which, by the way, NI sold a bunch of stuff to recently. CERN. Not Angels and Demons.)




Also, I can't tell you how excited I am about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows coming out. I mean really, I shouldn't be this excited since I'm probably not going to read it for a while. But it does bring up the fact that I probably really want the whole boxed set for Christmas. Yes, I have decided that I shall re-read the entire Harry Potter series...Granted, it would actually be the first time that I read the third one as I listened to it on tape...and I'd probably read the books in sequential order as opposed to going 3, 4, 1, 2, 5, 6 (God, throw in a pi in there and I'd be counting like that penguin in that one story...)




OH, and I'm pissed at AOL. Because their HIQ-viewer doesn't support Vista 64-bit because they are stupid. How the HELL am I supposed to watch videos of Histeria if they go about and deny me that opportunity.

And in case you were wondering, yes, I'm still Hyper Link Happy. By the way, have to seen the "Will It Blend?" Videos? Pretty nifty.

OOOOHHHHH NOOOOOEEESSS!

Really, that does suck, sorry to hear that about the MythTV box. Hopefully it'll get up and running again quickly.

I am also quite excited about HP and the Deathly Hallows, got my order lined up for midnight tomorrow, should be sweet. I'll be done with the book this weekend, so if you all want to borrow it, it's yours.

Oh, and Will It Blend? Is awesome?

Shamefully, I have three TVs. But, no cable. And, only two sets of rabbit ears. Eh.
