Just in case anyone has missed my amazing articles and comments lately, this is my shameful secret. We are among those who have suffered financial duress over the last few years. We cut back to the bare bones on things that were not necessities. I have to admit that I am not sure that cable, satellite or Direct TV is not a necessity.
When one considers that food really is a necessity, as well as shelter, healthcare,( of course there are those, for example Repubicans, that don’t think that healthcare is a necessity to those who don’t have as much money as they do) and air I suppose that television doesn’t rate at the top as a priority. We gave up satellite because we had to set priorities. We actually were able to survive just fine without satellite television, begrudgingly I might add. We finally splurged when our finances improved. Considering we don’t do much as far as expensive entertainment, I don’t think that we are really living high on the hog.
What is my dilema you might ask? SIX FEET UNDER! I admit it, I am sorry I am purging myself of my addiction. The first step is admitting that you are powerless over something. Yes, I am powerless over my addiction to Six Feet Under. I might add, it is not my fault! It is the fault of my adult children. Okay I have influenced their penchant for the macabre. I fully admit it. Now I am paying the consequences. My son and my daughter introduced me to Six Feet Under. I actually didn’t have HBO or Showtime, but they did, and because of them, I got the DVD’s from the library and went through intense withdrawal, and grief when they postponed the series. I couldn’t believe it.
I haven’t even started my agonizing horror over waiting for the next season of Dexter. Thanks a lot kids. Now to top it off it is going to be summer and I can’t stay holed up in the house with Dexter and Six Feet Under when there is sunshine and the outdoors to enjoy. How will I get any writing done either? That does it, I will have to get a laptop. I will not be able to afford a laptop either if I don’t write furiously. We all know it will not take long to save up for a laptop with my lush funds provided from AC on my pvs. Ha! Ha! Ha!
Well I feel better that I have unloaded and admitted my powerlessness over Six Feet Under, and Dexter too. I have been a quick study because of my desperation and have become amazing at using the DVR. The agony of addiction is calling.
