My cable tv and internet went out last night at about 10 pm and stayed off until 9 this morning. I realized the depth of my addiction at that time when my first thought was to look up the cable company's number on one of the yellow pages sites. Had to dig up an actual phone book.
When I first moved into this apartment I didn't have cable tv or any internet access for about two weeks. I read. I enjoyed the weather. I listened to the radio. If I end up moving to Harrisburg I wonder if I wouldn't be better off not signing up for cable down there.
