i don't have a television, and that's never been a problem for me. i love to watch movies and catch the occasional show on my computer while i'm trying to fall asleep at night, this suits me well. but right now, i can't stop trying to come up with ways to get a tv and cable service in the next 24 hours just so that i can watch this new Life series on the discovery channel. it premiers sunday and i want to watch it. cuss!
