Mood [Dec. 30th, 2018|12:13 am]
rejectomorph
Spent a lot of time looking at cat pictures again today. Out of desperation I also went to Taco Bell again. That's a lot of desperation. I remembered to get some packets of hot sauce this time. There are four, one of which is called Diablo, which is almost hot. The others run from fairly bland to utterly bland. White people's food LOL.

Anyway I've squandered so much time today that it's after midnight already and I should go to bed so I can get up bright and nine-ish tomorrow and do nothing again. It's almost a new year. Something is making me think it won't be any better than this one has been. My brain seems likely to continue getting mushier, and my house won't unburn itself. I need to find new distractions so I won't stay in this dismal mood constantly for the next year. Something like that. I can't think right now.

Looks like I'll have to buy a television, and subscribe to cable since this town is a broadcast desert and my T-Mobile service doesn't provide enough bandwidth to watch much of anything online.

Crap, I'd better sleep before I drive everybody else to drink.

I know you're trying to save some money, and cable and internet is an added expense. Others have suggested this, but cutting the cable cord and using live streaming services might be a possibility for you. I haven't done it - yet - but it's a consideration at this point, and am looking into it myself. You need to consider the channels you want to watch and which streaming services offer them, and compare and consider pricing.

To use live streaming services, you do need speedy, reliable wifi, and cable companies will charge more for that if you do not bundle it with their cable. However, from what I gather from others, even with the added cost of internet, it's still cheaper to use streaming services than Cable. There may also be one-time costs in equipment, and I'm not sure about that.

Here is a website to help you look over the many possibilities. FYI - I found this website in my neighborhood's website in response to a person asking about cutting the cord:
