Comments: Sarah: Is there a support group for this?

I couldn't do it. Tv and the internet are the only thing that balance my manic depression. Without them I am as good as dead.

Can you get the internet without the cable? Because you can always come over to my house to watch tivo. Though you would have to deal with the all the squalor. But if you are ok with that you can also use my internet if needed.

I recommend getting rid of the cable but keeping the TiVo. Antenna TV isn't so bad as long as your TiVo is working for you. And if it were me, I'd keep the internet but swear off internet boyfriends. But if you discontinue your internet, you're more than welcome to use ours if you need to submit an assignment on a weekend or something!

You could read books! Also, our house is clean these days,'d be cool if you came over to watch our TiVo. It's full of Jeopardy and The Joy of Painting with Bob Ross.

I've never had cable TV. I don't need it cause there is My Name is Earl, CSI Miami, SNL, etc. all without it. Love me some rabbit ears. I actually existed without a tv in the home two different times for 6 months each. I only really missed watching movies. I bet you'll date a lot more.

There are legitimate non-entertainment uses for the Internet. Or so I've heard.

One thing I've observed about TV -- the less you watch it, the more you realize that you don't miss it.

And I feel kind of bad that Dave has to refer to himself as Brother Dave. But not bad enough to let him be Dave and differentiate myself in some way. Because we all know that the natural name for me would be Creepy Dave. And I'm not ready to own that. Yet. I'm just saying.

Hee. Creepy Dave. ANYWAY, I have like three sets of bunny ears if you want to take one and mess around with it. Otherwise they are less than $10 at Smiths Marketplace.
