@JackEatsSparrows: I don't use normal TV but still followed a couple of shows on NBC via the Internet for a little while. I still had to sit through commercial breaks, plus the site's web player would occasionally malfunction. Then I'd have to do it all over again since my connection wouldn't usually catch up properly when I tried skipping back to where I left off.

I got around it for a little while with blockers, but unfortunately they grew wise to that. I get maybe having an ad every so often, but almost three minutes' worth?

Soo much frustration there. Sadly yet thankfully, said shows ended.

@Blitzenexx Hulu was much better when Hulu+ was still a thing. There was still the free version with ads, but the premium version had more shows/movies and no ads. Now they are charging Netflix prices for what was their free version.

Just got off of school today for Xmas, probably going to be stuck on my Switch for at least 2 days.

I still have another day! Lucky you!

I think I'll start playing Fire Emblem Heroes when I get my new phone.

Be yourself, no matter who you are!
For me, that's being madly in love with fictional characters. Plz don't judge.

One more day in the office before my 4 day weekend. And I’m the only one in my building. Other county sites are ghost towns, too. Yesterday I had....3 emails.

Tomorrow, 22 December 2018 will be Mother's Day in my country Indonesia.
At the same time, as Indonesian Chinese people, my Mom and Auntie will make Red dumpling balls in palm sugar soup + White dumpling balls (palm sugar as filling inside) in Chicken broth with sliced scrambled eggs and spring onions as tradition from China every 22 December.

3 emails?! I wish I had that luck. We are in the middle of an upgrade thanks to a vendor simultaneously upgrading about 100 of our clients. So that on top of my regular work has been a little nuts.

(At least I have a job interview today lol)

@Blitzenexx Remember when cable TV meant commercial free? Pepperidge Farms remembers....

@Anti-Matter Suddenly I'm really hungry... I love how food in Asia always looks playful and colorful (at least when it doesn't have eyes.... )

It's slowly gonna get that way today. It sounds like you have the same 4-day weekend I do.

As for the power drop, I sort of wonder if someone didn't plug in their power-hungry Christmas display just in time for Tuesday....

@Anti-Matter: I would totally try that. It sounds delicious!

@Ryu_Niiyama: Yuck, interviews. Good luck!

@NEStalgia: My family actually just used antenna until TV stations were going all-digital. We finally got Dish when I was in high school. I just got used to muting the commercials. Some lucky kids today don't even know what they are. They're spoiled with all this newfangled streaming and DVR stuff.... Waves technology cane

@Blitzenexx Bah, it comes full circle. Netflix is losing show licensing left and right.... and I wouldn't watch "Netflix originals" if they paid me to watch them.

Is anyone else getting showered with Christmas goodies at work? There's enough cheese, salami/sausage, chili, and cookies here to feed a horde of ravenous spring bears.

That bad huh? I consider subscribing to Netflix on and off, but I normally find enough to do in my spare time without being glued to shows/movies. Heck, I rarely get around to the movies and show seasons that I DO own. I still need to finish Legend of Korra....

Edit: Good grief, my autocorrect/autofill on my phone is on overdrive today....

No food here, but I found a mint in my desk. I think that counts.

On vacation until January 11. Time to play a lot of Vita, I guess. (maybe watch some anime too)

Managed to get lucky with SpongeBob dissection blind boxes. With the exception of getting a SpongeBob duplicate, managed to get Squidward, Sandy, Gary, Plankton, and Mermaid Man. Considering going back and asking if I can open the remaining boxes, since I NEED Patrick, Mr. Krabs, and Barnacle Boy to complete the collection (not counting alt versions of some of the characters)

NL's #1 kangaroo fan of SpongeBob Squarepants and Ristar!

Aren't LUCARIO's paws adorable? (MOAR adorable than all of the Eevee'z)

Rev up those fryers! MY LEG!

Also created Sheldon & Mr. Randoms on flipnote hatena, it was a series which I MADE!
