Last night, I tottered off to bed around midnight, after realizing that the episode of "Forensic Files" I had just watched was one I had seen a week ago. I was sleepy and didn't even read--just crawled into the space between the memory foam and the down comforter and commenced snoring.
Several snores later, I started awake at hearing a loud voice proclaiming a cure for back pain. It can be GONE, GONE, GONE!!
I sat up so fast, my back started to hurt!
The culprit? Gladys. Gladys likes to sit on top of the TV.
Due to some sort of design flaw, the power, volume and channel buttons are ON THE TOP of the TV. ON THE TOP, where walking cats can turn it on, change the channel, and turn up the volume, all in one fell swoop.
So, while a cure for back pain reverberates around my living room, and the cat is cowering on the coffee table, I am awake.
I am awake, and not happy about it. The only good thing about waking up at five o'clock on a Sunday morning is that "Front Page" is on Turner Classic Movies. I might as well stay up and enjoy it, as I'm fixing to cancel all the extra channels.
I can no longer afford Turner Classic Movies, ESPN, CNN, TruTV, The History Channel and all that other good stuff, so I'm cutting back the cable to the bare bones.
Are there infomercials on network TV?
