Friday Fun Facts

335 days out of the year I have cheap cable. You see, I'm a cheap person. I try to be as tight with my money as humanly possible. Don't roll your eyes at me, I'm not joking. I'm tight! A few years ago, my aunt told me about Cox's $11 a month cable package. This cheap cable comes with the basic channels, a few Spanish channels, a lot of crappy news channels, Lifetime (which is a necessity for any girl), and my favorite- Bravo.

However, for about 30 days out of the year, I splurge for expensive cable. By expensive cable I mean the basic cable package that 90% of Americans have in their house. You might be wondering why I splurge for expensive cable for only 30 days? Well, I do this so I can watch my Chritsmas movies on ABC Family. I know this sounds very dork, but Blogger World I never claimed to be cool.

Wednesday night I was flipping around my expensive channels and landed on VH1. I like VH1, they still play some music on their channel, and they have those really cool- I Love the 80's countdowns. Well, as luck would have it, I stumbled on one of VH1's great countdowns, 100 Greatest 1 Hit Wonders of the 80s. You better believe I wasted 2 hours of my life to see who was number 1. Blogger World any guesses on the greatest 1 Hit Wonder of the 80s????? Come on guess?? Fine the greatest 1 Hit Wonder was.....Dexys Midnight Runners: “Come on Eileen”
I fully support VH1's choice. Come on Eileen is a great song! If I was a smart computer gir, I'd post the video, but I'm not so just sing the song in your head.

Expensive channels. I love it. Sorry our dinner hasn't worked out yet. Maybe after Christmas would be better. We'll get one figured out!

oooh I need to see if we have Cox Cable available here. I'm currently on Comcast (we call it comcrap) and my bill went from barely 13 to now $17 per month. :p and nope, no extra channels.

and Yes splurging for the Christmas movies is a great idea.
