So i have a TV now.
Walked past the lounge on the way to the bathroom this morning and almost got a bad case of whip-lash when my peripheral vision picked it up. Most people would be startled to notice that their TV is missing, i am startled to see one in the first place.
Then i remembered that the amazing generosity (and disbelief) of a friend is how i ended up with the contraption sitting there.
I should thank Michael Jackson, inadvertently of course, for hooking me up.
You see, on the night of MJ's memorial while most people where watching it live, i was busy moon-walking in my living room waiting for Youtube to upload that ish. I wasn't really bothered with the 45min time lag, but it seems other people were appalled on my behalf.
Shock was expressed when a friend called to find out what i thought of memorial only to discover that i still didn't have a TV. I was then instructed, quite forcefully too, to get my behind to her place and pick up the spare TV she was harbouring there. I just muttered, "Yes m'am" were i could get a word in edge-ways.
After 14 months without one of these bad boys, i am treating it with suspicion, hehe. I am happy to report that i caught my first flick yesterday...a documentary on panda's and it was so refreshing. The plight of the panda's is an emotional stirring one.
It also dawned on me that local TV sucks, and that could explain why everyone has got DSTV/cable. Scrolling through the TV guide, i realised that everything they were showing i had already watched or was like 2 seasons behind, shocking!
I can't help but be saddened that my status as The Girl With No TV has been revoked. I am now just like everyone else :-(
Tis a sad day indeed, the unintentional non-conformist has conformed.
ROFLOL..SMH..LOL...LMAO: I wish i could express to you the sheer hilarity of the South Park episode where Bono is ripped...RIPPED to shreds! Just thinking about it is launching me into fits of uncontrollable giggles.
I haven't laughed this hard since...eish, i can't even remember.
Do yourself a favour, even if you aren't an avid Spleezie follower. Just watch it, promise me, its hilarious.
I am just finished thinking about it...
Am still feeling a little tender from the weekend! Note to self: When well meaning Naija boys start sponsoring drinks in the club, don't try to drink your weight in liquid form! My cheap-date self got too excited and now all i want to do is go home and crawl under the covers.
Have a happy, hydrated Monday chickens!
