Today was one of those days when I'm convinced of the possibility of an annoyingly didactic higher power fucking with me.

Our Internet connection has been blinking on and off for the last two weeks, and finally Comcast sent a technician to look at it today. The technician happened to notice while he was checking the line that, for the last 18 months, we've been getting more cable TV channels than our plan states we should receive.

So, after baselessly accusing me of tampering with the cable (fuck you, Comcast, fuck you in the arse), he installed a 'trap.' And now we only get channels 2 through 21.

No more endless hours of Law and Order on TNT.

No more endless hours of Law and Order: SVU on USA.

No Daily Show.

No Mythbusters.

No Crossing Jordan in a convenient timeslot.

No X-Files marathons.

No Project Runway.

Woe, woe is me. And yet, as much as it pains me to say it, this is a good thing, because I have a fucking audition in five weeks. I need to stay away from the idiot box.

Still. Goddamn.

Well, at least I can still watch Medium in a half-hour. Take that, interfering higher power!
