Meanwhile, I discovered how much more I accomplished without that TV. I never thought I watched much TV. I had it on while working a lot of time, but I just listened, not watched. Apparently I was kidding myself. Now I know that watching TV with the computer on your lap is fruitless time.
So, in the end, I bought the overpriced flat screen TV. I plugged it in and flicked through the channels. I wandered into channels with numbers higher than I have ever had on a TV before, and found music channels for every genre of music ever written. I had not changed my cable, so how did that happen? And then I noticed that the people on the screen were looking a little shorter and quite squat. When I saw Vanessa Williams looking like she weighs 200 pounds, I clapped my hands and thought it was worth every penny!
