Go Figure

We gotted a deal on a new tv.  It's all ready to go! But the cable box/dvr thingy is broked.  Mama thought that was the original problem.  But it was both the tv and the box! So now the cable guy (stupid) has to come back and properly hook us up to the outside world on tv. And he can't come (or whoever they send--I hope smarter!) until Sunday afternoon. So mama misses two whole weeks of Eastenders, and she is not happy. She can still get some of her programs on the internet, but not all of them. And our Eastenders don't match BBC's broadcasts (even if we could get them) so we will never get to see those episodes!
Oh, speaking of BBC, Law and Order/UK is fabulous! We do get BBC America. When we have cable.
The tech on the phone said we could have basic cable if we unhooked the box and plugged right into the tv, but then we wouldn't get the internet! Or the Animal Planet, for that matter.
Go figure.
Oh, and now they aren't coming till Monday morning!

Why do things have to be so complicated? Hope next week is better for you and your Mama, Miss Brandi.

One step forward, two steps back. That's the way it is at our house, too! Hopefully Monday you will be up and running. xoxo

So frustrating! We sure hope all those issues get resolved real soon, Brandi!

WOW...I am sure that when you do get your new cable box that there will be reruns of all the shows you missed, maybe not right away but most cable companies will show reruns of the last season showed.
