While I wait for the cable guy

So I’m getting cable TV complete with DVR today. Despite my calm facade I’m really most excited about this. I lost all TV access like a week or so ago, because despite what DirecTV told Sister #4 about three free months and warning her before they cancel the account, they just shut her off and charged her.


So after much rigarmarole, I’m getting Cable TV and because we live in Communist Russia or because there is only one Cable Guy to service the Twin Cities Metro area, I’ve had to wait an entire week for my much-wanted Cable TV. Clearly Time Warner does not realize that this is America and it is my god-given right to get whatever I want whenever I want it.


So while I wait impatiently for the Cable Guy (and I’m hoping I get the H-O-T Cable Guy that Sister #2 got a few weeks back when she needed her modem fixed), I’m doing Nick’s Meme. But before that, you should watch this Kidd Video video. It comes into play later.

(also, I’m pretty sure that the nerdy, chubby, bespectacled band member is Cousin Oliver from the Brady Bunch, or maybe Cousin Oliver’s son)
