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. :)
