Ruined Night

After tucking my little boy into bed, I sat down on the couch to watch all my guilty pleasures that I tivo. First up, Ellen DeGeneres. Love that show! Ok, so I press play and viola, it's the obnoxious guy from channel 8 news standing out in the snow. So, I fast forward some more and still the guy from channel 8 news!! He is telling me it's breaking news. Um stupid, it's not really breaking news. It's been snowing all day and I don't think anyone needed you to help them figure that one out. (if u did, my apologizes, you're a moron.) Plus, the news is on at 4, 5, 6, 10 and 11. Did you really need to interrupt my Ellen show at 3, to tell me it's snowing outside? Did you really need to take the whole hour to tell me it's snowing outside?? See why I hate the snow!! Ok, so whatever, on to my next show. Secret Millionaire. I press play and viola, it's the news guy from channel 5. Wonderful. I fast forward a little and the little pesky guy goes away! YES!!! But wait, that's not Secret Millionaire playing, that's a COPS episode from 1987. What the?? I notice some words scrolling across the bottom telling me that because of the snow storm, they can't broadcast regular programming. Again, what the? I have heard of bad weather causing the cable to go out, but I have never heard of bad weather causing 1987 reruns to take over the TV. I am so irritated. It's crap like this that causes me to fall off the weight watchers wagon. Now, I just want to eat a bag of goldfish crackers and watch Roseanne reruns.

We have direcTv and it was out ALL night from the snow so we didn't have anything to watch except Ellie's Dora videos. Fun. We actually had to have a conversation to pass the time. Can you imagine?
