Cable? What Cable?

It occurred to me as I was driving home tonight that it’s now been several months since I cancelled cable. I’m amazed to say that I don’t miss it overall. There have been a few times when I’ve wanted to veg and been drawn to the TV. I don’t even have it set up to watch channels over the air – I just don’t care enough. A couple of those times I watched one of the DVDs I own. Often I read. Imagine that.

This is such a major success, as I grew up in a household where the TV was always the fourth wall. Indeed, if I’m in a bar or somewhere where a TV is playing I am completely distracted by it, as I have a strong conditioned response to watch it. TVs are just plain evil.

I thought when I cancelled that I’d really miss some of my favorite shows. At this point, they don’t matter. If I’m at a friend’s and would get a chance to watch, it would be fun, and it no longer has the weight that it used to.

Hm. I wonder if I should be one of those annoying people who puts a “Kill your television” bumper sticker on their car. God knows I’m annoying in lots of other ways, so I’ll have to think about it.
