I’m spending the day at home with the dogs today. Something entertaining is afoot and I’m sat waiting for a man to come around and sort us out.
Bill and I decided to cancel our YMCA gym membership and use the cash to subscribe to cable TV instead. It was just turning into a monthly waste of money anyway as with late nights at work and the Y’s meagre weekend opening hours we rarely managed to make it down there anymore. Also, Bill and I have been spending lots of time at Coan playing table tennis instead, and that’s free. I will miss the steam room, jacuzzi and swimming pool though, wish they had an option where you could drop in and pay as you go instead of most months just throwing money away on membership that isn’t used.
So, by the end of the day we should no longer be forced to endure, crackling, fuzzy, infuriatingly bad reception and a small selection of crap American TV and repeats. Instead we’ll have a vast range of crap American shows to pick over. Joy!
I think BBC America comes as part of the standard package too, but as THEY CANCELLED EASTENDERS! (grrrrr), aren’t really at all like the real BBC and just seem to show endless block repeats of Changing Rooms and Ground Force I can’t see myself straying there too often. Not impressed.
Hmm, saying that, I seem to be currently missing an episode of Changing Rooms filmed in Plymouth…curses! Still, NO BENDERS!!! *wails*
In other news I had a visit to the oral surgeon yesterday for a consultation. I got very nervous and my tummy was all over the place as I’m not looking forward to having my wisdom teeth out. Apparently I only have three and they will all be extracted (probably kicking and screaming) from my jaw a week from today. I had horrid horrid gummy toothy bloody dreams about it last night, can I please run away?
