In my little world "I am Queen"

Monday, December 10, 2007


There is this sweet little invention called HDTV that makes your television screen so crisp, clear and amazingly life like you feel as if you are sitting right in the screen. It is a must have especially if you are even thinking of watching some type of sporting event, such as football.

The problem, not all local channels are dishing out the signal for HD for their network. This is causing major issues in my household so much as I am on the breaking point of hearing it discussed. You see a request waiver has been sent in the local network asking for permission for the signal out of NYC, the problem, permission denied.

What gives Mr. Big Shot at the local station?

Not sure, I think just because they sit in a fancy office in their fancy suit and want to make people like me suffer listening to their crazed boyfriends rave about how important it is to have HDTV for the football games or any televised event for that matter they deny all requests.

The solution buy 2 HDTV antennas that are listed as the strongest by your local retailers only to find they do not work because you choose to live in a valley that blocks all signals going into your basement rec room. Another solution, purchase the strongest antenna known to mankind fiddle around with it on the roof, have your girlfriend stand on the roof while you check the signal only to move it a week later. In the freezing cold, mind you, I was not a happy camper.

At this point the antenna is on the highest point on the roof and yep, that’s right you guessed it, the signal still comes in and out, maybe even worse then it did before. My goodness you cannot even think about watching a football game. What if you miss the most important play of the game? It went out about 5 or 6 times in a 10 minute span for about 5 seconds each time. O yes, we got it down to a science of the whens and how longs.

The final solution, buy a new flat screen Plasma TV for Dad’s house as a Christmas present then conjure up this evil plot to have him upgrade his cable to digital so you can watch the superbowl in HDTV. If this plan does not work I am seriously going to gouge out my eardrums so I do not have to hear about the importance of HDTV.

My solution? Call the local decision maker at the network giving you hassle and threaten him with bodily harm.*

I am telling you HDTV is the DEVIL…

*not really but hey at this point anything sounds good just so I don’t have to hear about what a bunch of jerks they are at the local network station it any longer.

Thanks for your comment on my blog - I see we're both Scorpios!! Dangerous....yes it does get easier, little by little and the great thing is that children are remarkably resilient and adaptable.

I'm glad you stumbled upon my blog - I like yours too and whilst I agree about HDTV being the devil the great thing is that you know all about it, like me because I was responsible for buying the TV and therefore needed all the facts - all on my own with no bloke telling me what to do....

Also, I'm reallly jealous - you have had over 7K people read your blog. That is not fair. I haven't had nearly that many.
