Late Night Post Session

What up yo?

I don't have cable. For a few reasons.

We don't really watch a ton of tv. Just the main shows. But that doesn't even really matter now because of the writers strike. We are more into movies and video games for me anyway.

The other reason is the cost. I guess you can combine that with the first reason because if we watched it a lot, then I guess it would be ok, but time and cost just don't equate.

I also have an HD tv. Nothing amazing. Just a 32 inch Vizio. Very decent. Relatively inexpensive. It is HD though.

So why have an HD tv if you don't even have cable? Well, I bought an HD antenna. Yup, you can get HD over the air. And it looks pretty good! Actually, really good!

So right now, I'm watching OETA. Just some great PBS shows about the F86 Sabre Jet and downed pilots, and some Hawaii history with lava and humpback whales.

In HD!

Oh, it snowed today! Got icy a little too, but not too bad. It was pretty windy though, whipping the snow around. Just enough of an accumulation that with cold temps and cloud cover, it may just be a white Christmas. Who knows!

We went to Church on The Move tonight. Well, we usually go on Saturday nights, but tonight was their special Christmas service.

It was really well done! Great music and an awesome performance. They had like this gigantic LCD screen... panels all attached together that must have been like... 40-50 feet wide or something! Really cool!

DoubleShot (Coffee Company) had some Kona Coffee in, and you had to pre-order, so I had to get some. I've heard great things about it.

Brian, at DoubleShot describes it as this:
Traditionally, since Kona is an island coffee, it is very bright, clean, fruity, and delicious. You can definitely expect it to come alive in your mouth, especially if you drink it while it's still really fresh."

So, I thought I'd try some. I made a cup tonight and I really enjoyed it! Also, Jenni isn't used to (and doesn't really plan on) drinking coffee "black;" but I make her try one sip of every new coffee I get.

She usually grimaces and grabs for a cup of soda or water or something, but when I had her try this Kona, she didn't make any faces or anything! She said that she actually liked it. Now, I don't think she will always drink it that way, but is this a start of another coffee snob in the family? Perhaps!

So, if anyone wants to try a cup of excellent coffee, come on over! I'll make you a cup. But you can't add sugar or milk and you have to drink the whole thing. Don't worry, it won't be much (I don't want to waste it on you!).

You know what I haven't had in a while? A fountain soda from QuikTrip. Now, they aren't any different from your soda's in other places but if you've been to QuikTrip, then you know what I'm talking about.

Ok, now I'm thirsty. I'll be right back.

Wow. It didn't look like I even left, but to me it did.

Anyway, I'm back.

I guess that's it for now. Let me know if I forgot something. How is your Christmas break going? Mine is good so far. See ya!

Nothing like a microwaved burrito from QT to wash down their soda...

yeah... cable isn't worth it unless they give you a ton of channels they don't know about! So you need to post your Christmas gifts... or continue your one present a week thing you did!
aahhaha good ol' days
