Cat Fight!

So let's see how the cat fight between Scripps, which owns HGTV and the Food Network, and Cablevision plays out. Apparently Scripps is upping the license fees cable companies have to pay them to broadcast those channels.

Scripps is playing the card that customers will bitch to Cablevision to put those channels back on, or they will switch cable providers. I have no idea if that's happening or if Cablevision is losing customers. Or in many areas there may not be an alternative to Cablevision.

I don't really watch the Food Network a lot these days, so I barely noticed when it went off the air. It seems like every time you turn around there's a new show on, and it isn't very interesting.

Juicy Pears

So hot secretary kept begging me to try her juicy pears. "You've gotta try my juicy pears," she'd say. "You've got to wrap your mouth around my juicy pears."

I finally gave in. And boy howdy were they sweet and succulent and juicy and a nice handful.

They were, of course, the Harry and David pears, which are ridiculously expensive (normally $37 for 6). We got them at the office just before Christmas.

Hot secretary kept saying,"These are like the best pears ever or something OMG!" Yeah, I guess, but they're just pears. They are pretty juicy. Disturbingly juicy.
