Capybaras, Rodents of Unusual Size

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 12:32 pm

I had never heard of capybaras until this past summer when I met a woman moving into my apartment building. She had just spent a year in South America studying these things called kappaberras, which I late found out was spelled capabaras. They are like 100-pound guinea pigs that swim. They’re really cute too. I hope to see one someday. I want to pet one, but I don’t know if they’re dangerous. They probably aren’t as soft and loveable as my Nala.
Am I the only one who has never heard of capybaras? How could these cute exotics have been kept from me for so long?

One Channel

Filed under: General — stargazer @ 6:57 pm

One TV channel is really all you need.

We watch one TV show. It’s on one channel. We can get news, House, and even American Idol.

In Kirksville it was the same thing. I had one channel, and it allowed me to watch the Towers come down. I will never forget that.

I don’t understand these satellites and digital cables. You can get hundreds of channels. I’d never watch more than a few. Besides, YouTube is a really good alternative for entertainment, and it’s free as long as you buy an Internet service.

The cable company cut our free cable. It was bound to happen sooner or later. We didn’t want cable enough to actually pay for it, and The Company is raking it in through their Internet charges to us anyway. At least we don’t pay by the minute. Remember those days?
