All this talk about pirates lately made me think about how very soon my t.v. channels will be highjacked. For those of you who don't know (uh...do you live under a rock?) in June all t.v. stations will "transition" to digital and if you're like me and have a t.v. that's not all jacked up on digital steroids, you will be unable to watch ANYTHING. The solution? Pay $40-$60 bucks a pop for digital converters or pay that much and more per month for cable t.v. Great. Because I have all the money in the world to pay for something that was hithertofore FREE. Who thought of this plan anyway? Where is this person located because I'm going to take a bat to his kneecaps. He will have second thoughts the next time he tries to extort money out of me by highjacking my t.v. channels. Bloody t.v. pirate!
In other news, this past weekend was National Torture Your Boyfriend Weekend. You didn't know that? Too bad, you missed out. It was a hoot. In celebration of this wonderful holiday, I bribed, cajoled and generally forced G to help me re-do the flower beds in my front yard, as well as mow the lawn, weed-eat, edge and intermittently run to Home Depot and Lowe's to stock up on supplies. Granted, I worked just as hard as he did, but I tend to find joy in creating beautiful gardens where he tends to find a reason to strangle me. We did survive the weekend, however, and even managed to catch a movie and G grilled us a FABULOUS meal on his new grill on Saturday night. He may not have liked me very much last weekend, but he sure does LOVE me. That's all that matters, right?
Maybe when I can afford to get cable t.v. and internet service, I'll post pictures of my yard. Until then, you'll just have to take my word that it's so much better than it was before! Love me some flowers!
