A group of friends and get together and watch the tv shows The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Don't judge.
Mostly we just get together and make fun of the dumb things people say and the crazy clothes they wear.
I'd host occasionally, but we are too cheap to pay for cable. I worried that our antenna, lovingly strung out the window and tied to a post with grosgrain ribbon (really klassy), would lead to a freezing and skipping picture. Embarrassing as telling a lame joke after jumping out of the limo sunroof on the first night.
In preparations of the upcoming January season of The Bachelor, Marc and I decided to install a tv antenna in our attic. Marc bought the Channel Master CM 4228hd off of amazon for about $60. (Suck it cable company!)
I got busy feeding the wire up our plumbing chase from the basement to the attic. Gave me a good excuse to by a wire fish tape of my very own. (Aren't you proud Dad?) It took some doing, but I got it up there. (Like my blue "constructions" slippers?)
The hardest part of the whole installation why trying to fit the antenna through the attic access hole. The simple things, of course.
Then I sat in the attic, texting people and taking self portraits while Marc wired it all up downstairs. We used our phones like walkie talkies to position the thing and then BASTA! Free tv!
We haven't had broadcast tv in about +6 months since the grosgrain finally gave way and the old antenna bit it. We got by watching Netflix. Skins UK is awesome and I developed an unnatural addiction to the ABC Family show Greek. *blushes*
Anybunny, these new 13 or so channels are pretty amazing to us. Sports look great and come in crystal clear, which is a good thing because we have a friend who will babysit for free if he can veg and watch football. But let's face it, I'm still watching every Law & Order rerun that I missed.
So here is to January and the new season of The Bachelor. Are we hoping or not hoping that BenF breaks out his sheer sweater?
(I cannot believe the internet would not find me an image of that!)
