I just realized that you can post on Topix while you are in India like Aisle Sitter did from Germany and Sublime did from Scandanavia.

I'm hoping to make my way back there later this summer, but we shall see. I actually never got over being jet lagged the whole time I was there.

Book club: Well, maybe everyone who is interested throws their hat into the ring, we plug the names into a randomizer website, and the first person gets to pick a book and we have X weeks (2-4?) to read it and discuss.
When it's my turn to pick, this is the book we will be reading:

I'm going to pick "The JOy of Sex." The hairy 1970s version.

I have bad news for you. I don't think by book club they are contemplating forming a picture book, book club.
I feel sorry for you that your job doesn't hold enough interest for you that you have to resort to things like this to entertain yourself.

Don't feel too sorry for me. Things could be much worse for me. I could be you!

Oh, and about cable tv... Yanno, you can just ditch them all and get HD over the air. Sure fewer channels, but that is what netflix is for.

I quit cable 3 yrs ago, and have not missed it a minute. Watched all the Mythbusters I wanted, every startrek episode ever written and tons of kung fu movies. And there is still more to see.

So instead of $60 a month, I pay $8 Diff of $52 X 36 =$1872 That is a 60" HD tv to you and me!

Just sayin....

Netflix? Worthless! Netflix is not gonna replace ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, Fox Sports, Sunshine, NBATV, & TNT. I could 2 give shits about mythbusters and star trek(star trek? WTF? Watxhing it whwn you were 10 wasn't enough? You need another Shatner fix?) I want my ESPN College Gameday. I wanna see Corso's head gear. I want college football running from 10am till the midnight wrap up. I want Sunshine's Sunday replay of the mighty Nole's dominating win from Saturday. I want my Inside the NBA with the Jet and the Chuck Wagon. My TNT game of the night. Fan's choice Wednesday.

Netflix? Psshht!

Oh, I'd enjoy Star Trek the Next generatin! I loved that show.

Sports: T hat is why Nick has cable. I don't think he'd stay sane if he had to go without sports on TV. He enjoys mythbusters and the shows he and I watch, but he can live without them (I think being a single dad with a 5yo and a newborn cured him of TV habits pretty quickly).

I hear more details about more games than I ever need to. nick will even retell great plays he knows I was there to see. He does not push his kids into sports, and they like sports and are very good for their ages, I think, but his ultimate dream would be for his kids to be good enough at a sport to play it in college. He'd cry.
