Guess where I'm blogging from?

Yep, the good ol' Barko-Lounger. I've got Web TV as well as a regular Internet connection. Not sure how I've got Web TV. Somehow it came with my Ultimate TV (which is like Tivo, but made by Microsoft and really hasn't been marketed too well). The Ultimate TV is part of my DirectTV package which costs me an arm and a leg (not literally, but that wouldn't matter since I am in a recliner and don't need both arms and legs). Butit's better than cable despite what Comcast would lead you to believe. Though reception is spotty when it rains at times. Kind of a bitch in Seattle.

Anyway, I'm typing away on my wireless keyboard looking at my 32 inch television and marveling at modern technology. Why am I blogging instead of watching the expensive premium channel package I pay dearly for? Because even with 300 channels to choose from I can't seem to find anything decent to watch. The butt waxing special was on last night and I missed it.

But I digress.

The point is, I'm talking back to my television. How very Fahrenheit 451 of me (Bradbury fan's will get the reference). Unfortunately, as with the rest of my blogs, it isn't listening either.

But at least I'm comfortable.
