Our DVD player stopped working a couple of weeks ago. No big deal. We don’t really have time to watch a whole movie or show anyway.

Last week, following a loss of power, our cable box stopped working. It was probably a good thing that I couldn’t follow news minute-by-minute, but I did miss a few special news programs on Sunday afternoon.

Neither of those mechanical failures affected my viewing of March Madness. We don’t get a channel that shows it, and so I learned what was happening by watching facebook status comments. “Sorry, dear…Sorry, Justin.” Translation: Ohio State lost.

Needing some sort of a basketball fix, we resorted to our VHS collection. (Suddenly I’m glad that we didn’t just pitch these over the past years). Loved watching Hoosiers with Jim and our house guests. Maybe Pistol Pete tomorrow? (Odds aren’t great that we’ll have another evening to enjoy a full movie…but a girl can hope, can’t she?)

Go team!

    (wendy, me too! so, i guess i am dorky too!)

  3. Maybe we should start a dork club? Once this VHS player gives out, I don’t know whether we’ll purchase another. But for now, it’s the best we have. And, yes, we actually do have some great VHS movies — and some junk. Heh!
