I Think the U(ni)verse is Against Me

Super Mario Brothers circa 1985

If any of you are Uverse customers, then we can mourn together in this weekend’s discovery that our cable company is duking it out with the head of (are you ready for this?) HGTV, Food Network, and the Cooking channel and have currently blocked all programming of these shows.┬áNOOOOOOOO!!!! Imagine my surprise when I tuned in to what I thought would be Iron Chef and discovered The 40-Year Old Virgin. So I changed the channel for my favorite house hunting shows, only to find a not-very-family-friendly series in its place. This will not do. To be honest, the only reason I’m even interested in cable is for those three networks. (I secretly suspect Ben is somehow the mastermind behind this, considering he’s always trying to pry me away from my favorite FN shows.) So no TV for us this weekend. Instead, we downloaded old school Nintendo games to our Wii system – there’s something really comforting about being sick on the sofa, cuddled up in a blanket surrounded by soggy tissues playing 1980’s video games with your husband. Don’t you think?

Duck tonight! (No, I mean, I’m cooking duck tonight. Tune in tomorrow for the recap!)
