That took a while. (long long post)

So ye olde internet was out at the office today and I managed to not sit down and read LJ until a little while ago... like say an hour ago. I just finished reading and commenting to everything since I read it yesterday.

Heh, with friends like you who needs cable?

You know, that's not such a bad idea. I've been contemplating getting rid of cable for a while now and I think I finally decided to do it. I went to see Morgan Spurlock's Super Size Me with Dave last night (he went on doctor's orders, I went out of morbid curiosity) and it got me thinking about my lifestyle once upon a time and now and in the future.

If I look around at what I want and need to do cable/TV doesn't really factor in anywhere. I've never sat around and thought "gosh, I feel so accomplished now that I watched that Love Boat marathon". Sure, I love movies (and some TV shows) and I will always enjoy curling up on the couch to watch something, but given my rather monsterous and ever growing DVD collection (not to mention my newest bit torrent aquisitions) I really don't need cable and I could certainly do without paying for it. Heck, more often than not I end up feeling lame for losing a couple of hours watching it on any given night. Honestly I'd much rather get off my ass and do stuff (even if some of the stuff, like say putting up and fiddling with my seemingly mythical webpages, involves much sitting).
