I used to watch tons of TV. Tons. Too much. Way too much. If I was home, the TV was on. Sometimes two of them.

I bought a new (well, old... but new to me) house earlier this year.

I killed the cable service at my old house, but didn't transfer it to the new place right away. The house really wasn't wired for cable, and I hate seeing any wiring and knew I'd do a better job of it than the cable company, so planned to do all the internal cabling myself the first week I moved in.

It was a busy time, I didn't get around to it the first week. Or the second week. Or the second month. I finally did, and did a nice job, hidden cabling discretely running throughout the house under floors and inside walls.

I still haven't called the cable company. Just haven't.

I'll call them tomorrow. But then again, I said that yesterday, too.

Stunningly (even to me), I've lived without live television in my own home since April. I don't get as mad seeing how bad the television stations and cable companies louse up our commercial spots. I've discovered movies that I didn't even know I owned. Many still in the shrink wrap. I was finally able to watch all of Arrested Development (although I still won't watch the finale... because then it's "over"). I've gotten more done. I've even read a book or two.

I don't miss it. Much.

And I don't tell our clients that.
