Dont Mince Words

I’m sure many have speculated how long I would last without a TV. I’m a communications person with roots in public affairs. Wouldn’t I miss spin? Netflix? Or at the very least, Sponge Bob reruns?

Yes, yes, and yes. My fall off the wagon began with my stereo receiver. It had served me well, but it was time for replacement. My receiver was the gateway component back to the dark side of television. It was HDMI compliant. It was lonely and needed accessories to fill its many input jacks in the back.

I immediately welcomed a 1080p HD TV and a Sony Blu-ray to my receiver. They are getting along nicely. The sound is amazing. The picture is beautiful.

The Netflix arrive Wednesday and cable guy is coming in another week. Soon I’ll be reunited with Keith Olbermann. I’ve read a lot of books and listened to a lot of podcasts. It’s time to get reacquainted with my sofa – just in time for “winter.”
