Another Chapter in My Exciting Life
I had leftover pasta for dinner again, although I finished it off, so I'll have to figure something else out tonight. Actually, maybe I'll pick up something at Figs, as I'm heading to the new place after work to pick up keys. I think I might bring a tape measure with me so that I can start planning what to put where and what to get rid of.

I watched The Weather Man, which was fun. I played some poker, too. I took 1,000 play chips to one of the small tables and turned it into 13,000 play chips. Then I moved onto one of the bigger tables. I lost 8,000, then I lost 20,000. Then I took 18,000 and eventually turned that into 60,000. If I had quit then, I would have been way up for the day. However, I kept playing until I had lost it all. So, a net loss for the day as far as play chips go, but I had fun. I also watched some poker on TV, which was fun. Fun fun fun. Everything is fun.

I haven't decided yet if I'm going to get cable at my new place. I've only had cable twice in my life, and I've never paid for it (a few channels came with our apartment in Texas, and the DIRECTV in my current place comes with the apartment). I guess I'm leaning towards not getting it for a couple of reasons. For one thing, I'm cheap. Also, not having something to watch at every hour of the day might get me to do more productive things, like exercise, cleaning, and possibly even something creative.

Delayed gratification is no fun when it comes to Roslin and Baltar. Or to Boomer's baby.

You realize this has no meaning for me at all.

But it has meaning for queue, and that's what enabling is all about.

I was exceedingly not gratified by where things went in last season's last episode. So exceedingly not gratified that I truly have little interest in the new season (there are a couple of things they could do to bring me back, at least temporarily, to the BSG fold but I'm not counting on them).

Yes, it needed to end 30 minutes before it did.

But I'm hoping they learned their lesson and will do their best to return to high quality drama. Because it was so *good* while it lasted.

Basically the only thing that will make me happy is if they just pretend they never fastforwarded a year, and simply go back to cover parts of the story that happened just prior to and during that year.

So does Netflix. And as long as you don't keep taunting me, I can wait until it comes out on DVD.

Ah, but that assumes I don't keep taunting you. And we all know what the chances of *that* are.

Do you know when it is coming back on? I feel like I have not turned on live TV in a while. I want to make sure I have the DVR set to record so I don't miss it....I have waited long enough so it has to be soon.

October. Stargate is back in July, per usual, but BSG is debuting on a mainstream schedule.

I have found that it's always a good idea to simply plug in the cable when you move into a new place. Often times the cable isn't turned off if it was just basic cable, anyway.

Don't you need a cable box for this to work?

Nope. Should work with your TV. Just make sure it's set to have a CATV input, not an antenna. It might not work if it's set up for digital cable, though. Not sure. Never encountered that.
