I kinda miss TV

I think I mentioned not too long ago that there's a ghost in my television. Well, I guess it's not a ghost... the TV has decided to die.

More than two months ago the television started turning off on its own. It happened one day when I was home alone and I thought it a little odd, but I figured it was a fluke. It came back on and I didn't think nothing else about it until a few weeks later when Amber was watching it.

Suddenly I heard her say, "Hey!"

"Oh, did the TV go off? I forgot to tell you about that. It happened to me the other day."

It started off happening once every two weeks, then once a week, then a few times a week, a few times a day... now it turns on and off so fast I can't even sneak in 45 minutes of a show that I've recorded on DVR. It won't let you turn it off anymore so I keep it on the DVR menu, which goes to a screen saver, so that the noises of television don't scare us to death.

It is now very annoying.

Not only that, but I record all the shows I like to watch and sit down during my lunch or whenever the kids aren't around and I have a moment to become engrossed in a show in peace. It's not something I do often, but when I do it I really enjoy it.

I have quite a few electronic things around here that have decided not to work and I was thinking of posting them for sale on CraigsList as parts. I'm sure there's a techno gadget geek person out there that needs part for an old exercise bike that lost its tension, a couple of TVs that don't work, some computer parts and whatever else I find that is supposed to run on electricity.

In the meantime, maybe I can find my favorite shows online. As if I don't spend enough time here. :)

  1. Time to get a new set. It can be quite annoying that sometimes things seemed to go on strike together and everything has to be replaced. I am sort of having this feeling at the moment; my computer is hanging on thread, my glasses lens popping out etc. But the good thing is, the thread seems pretty strong and no sign of breaking and the lens are staying in their places at the moment. It can only get better. :)

  2. Ugh. I hate it when that happens. The good news is, your t.v. died during Summer re-runs, so you're probably not missing much anyway. But that stinks... boo!!
