Time for the Jeopardy!
well, we finally got cable. the guy came today and hooked us up. since being married we've never paid for tv service. we've always had an antenna or done without. it's pretty exciting. actually, cable was my third choice. i wanted dish network or directv, but i have a tree in the way. the guy from dish network came to install earlier this week, but told me he couldn't and said that directv would have the same problem. that's when i called the cable company. they were here in just a few days and total hook up time was about ten minutes. it was really neat to have it be so fast, but i have one problem. i don't know how to delete unwanted free digital channels. i have a digital tv, so apparently i can pick up some free channels. mostly they are music channels, but there's one that really needs to go away. it's a naughty channel. the cable guys warned me that i might get some channels like that. they said they can't control it. my bedroom tv is too old to be digital, so i don't get those channels in there. unfortunately, that's the tv i know how to work and delete channels. derek says that he'll check it out and see if he can fix the problem when he gets home. i sure hope he can. personally, i can just skip those channels, but what if i have a babysitter at my house. i wouldn't want my favorite 12 yr old babysitter to accidently stumble onto that channel. i'm sure she and her parents would never forgive me. i also wouldn't want my kids to find that channel. sometimes they fiddle with the tv when i'm not in the room. anyway, i'm still glad i got cable. now i can have all the local channels. i can finally watch jeopardy at my house! yay!
