It's official.

I'm an idiot.

I know, I know, I've said it before, but this time it's true.

We're having lots of thunderstorms and nasty weather here in the Texas panhandle, and I've been opening the wondows in the house so that I can listen to the rain, because seriously? It doesn't rain here, like ever. So when we get it, it's like a treat.

My internet has been kind of spotty due to the storms, and so I didn't think anything of it when I turned on the TV to get the weather and all I got was snow. I thought, "Huh. Channel 7 must be having issues."

Not so. It was me. I'm the one having issues.

It wasn't until I was having a lunch meeting with my employer and fellow teachers this afternoon that I realized... television went digital here in the states SIX days ago.

We don't have one of those box thingys or cable, and our TVs are both over 12 years old, so we get nada. Zip. Zero.

That's how much TV I watch.

So. The dilemma? Do I get cable? Or a box converter dealy? A new, fancy flatscreen? Or do I just download what I want to watch and squint at the computer screen? Decisions, decisions.
