APOLOGIES TO ALL for the weirdness of internet service these past weeks. I hit my limit of patience this week and am switching to satellite. Of course to pay for it I’ll need to budget some other things. I’m thinking seriously of abandoning my smart phone for something dumber and cheaper. For one thing, being able to be reached by email when I’m away from home I find annoying rather than convenient. For another, I don’t enjoy games on a tiny screen. And all the apps are cute, but I don’t have the time or patience for any of them. So how smart is having this phone and paying extra for it, I ask you.
Just took another look at my Direct TV bill and realized I need to reconsider that as well. The only channels I watch anymore are USA and MSNBC for Rachel and the crew. Of course, I have to get another 118 channels to get those two, and pay through the nose for them. I could cut the bill in half by going to the family plan, but it doesn’t include either of the channels I want to watch. So the hell with it. If anyone knows of an alternative where you only get – and only pay for – what you want to watch, let me know.
It doesn’t trouble me that I’m becoming more of an anti-establishment anarchist. It’s that I’m enjoying it so much. More to come, I dare to predict.
