Since DirecTV evidenly don’t believe in showing up when they say they will, we are without cable for a week. The cable guy (who I visualize as being the fat Jersey janitor from Futurama) was supposed to come by on Friday to whatever it is they do to activate a box when you transfer the service to someone else. However, despite my roomate taking the morning off work to wait for the scheduled service, the jerks never showed up. Now I’m without cable on a week when there’s a new Drawn Together episode. This does not make me happy.
We’re actually down to watching the documentaries on the TiVO now. Y’know, the stuff that you record because it’s a subject matter you want to learn about, but you never actually get around to watching because you’re too busy watching the brainless stuff you Season Passed. That stuff.
However, tonight, since there’s no cable, I may leave the house instead. My friends have enthusiastically recommended tonight’s lineup at the Hotel Cafe. Specifically, Keaton Simons at 8pm.
And tomorrow, I have to leave the house because it’s our last week of Kickball Pickup. That’d be the usual Wednesday Night Kickball, at Oakwood Rec, 7th/California, Venice. 7pm. Free, pickup game, open to everyone – although last week, we almost had too many people.
But still, even though I suspect it’s healthier not to have the DirecTV, I’m still no end of grumpy at having to go without it. Anyone else feel that they’re being neglected by those forgetful incompetents? Because right now, I’m realizing, their “We Care” ad campaign is a crock.
