This is my daughters ACTUAL status on Facebook:
Boredom, it's the fun that's INVISIBLE!
SIGH...I think I would have to agree. Poor = Boring. No money to go or do anything, lucky to eat and still have power but then....... IT happened........
My poor TV, it was once addicted to CRACK. It had the latest in upgraded programing: 10,052 channels of "nothings on" whine technology and an HDTV resolution picture. But things got tight. I downgraded to a lesser package, there were withdraws, sweating and pacing by it's side, begging for an ounce, nay a smidgen, of "Cash Cab" and HGTV enlightenment. The lack of "America's Next Top Model" frivolity and "Top Chef" memories, caused shaking fits and convulsions. No DISNEY?????? WTF kind of house am I running here???!!! Skip my Discovery Channel or TLC,, this is a travesty!!!
It is now throwing up the same movies on VCR because my DVD player only plays music CD's and not DVD's 90% of the time!!! After my 125Th time of watching the "Lion King", I now hear secret back tracking messages when it rewinds "Eat a cake!!"- "Blue sparkles today!!"-"You look fantastic, no, REALLY you do!!"-"Play me again or I will shat on your head and taint your pickle supply!"
So we play it again. And my girls whine and Traxx laughs and laughs!!
My final Dish Network extension ran out and NOW, we have nothing, notta, zero, sans TV entertainment. I stayed up talking to it all night, assuring it that I DID in fact love it and would soon feed it again, whilst I wiped it's plastic brow.
I started watching the only adult VCR tape I could find. "50 First Dates". But if you've seen it once, you've seen it 50 times! My son kept saying " I don't LOVE this show" with such repetition, I allowed him to put on Lion King while I rocked back and forth in my chair.
....Are ya aching, YUP! YUP! YUP!.....For some bacon, YUP! YUP! YUP!
....Then YOU can be a big PIG too!!! OYE!!
What this means now is we are going to have to find other ways of entertaining ourselves.
Here are some games we are playing:
