Well, phooey!! I've not watched (or felt inclined to watch) tv for the last four years minimum. The flat I'm in currently (have been for the past 18 months) is a basement - has no TV reception, no landline, no internet and no mobile signal.
If people want to ring me they have to ring my mobile and I have to stand IN the window to get a signal. I only get to access internet intermittently at work, and if I want to watch tv I get videos or dvds and watch old episodes of The Avengers, UFO and suchlike. Occaisionally I shall watch a movie on a weekend with a nice bottle of wine - last Saturday I watched Gladiator - but my daily digest of news, views, current affairs and comedy comes from Radio Four.
Radio Four is my entertainment of choice, and yes, I have become slightly addicted to The Archers, but hey! I'm not going square-eyed and getting my brain turned to fudge like everyone else!
And not having a landline is nice. It means I don't get people ringing me that I don't particularly want to talk to.
In other news, Strung Out Folk are gigging tonight at The Acoustic Cafe, Fortescue, Mutley Plain. We are playing after ten pm, which is when I get out of work. I am still doing DutyObs as there is no-one else to do it - and I ought to be at home being ill - because I am. Horrible stinking fluey ill. But at least I'm in quarantine in here with no-one to cough over.
Ok, I'll shut up now.
