So the cable doesn't exactly work right. The internet is fine (thank heaven) but for some reason the TV doesn't quite work. There's something wrong with the communication between our cable box and Comcast; the guide says all the shows on all the channels are "To Be Announced" (good show, that), and most of the channels aren't coming in at all-- we just get a message saying that it will appear 'shortly'. Needless to say, it doesn't.

The irony about all of this is that we do get a couple of channels perfectly: the Food Network and HGTV, the two channels I am always trying to force Don to watch with me! Now he has no choice but to suffer through episodes of 'Divine Design' and 'Barefoot Contessa.'

Every so often he forgets himself and gets really interested in a show, though, which is very funny to watch. Don, you see, has a bad habit-- picked up from watching football with his Dad, I suspect-- of shouting at the television when they don't do what he wants. This is pretty normal when you're watching a Ravens game: "What? You've got to be kidding me! Bad call! Penalty!" But it's a little weird when you're watching HGTV: "What? You've got to be kidding me! That paint color is all wrong! You can't put that lamp there!"
