It is an easy error to make I suppose. I work in the dark and, as a consequence, am often barely getting up at midday. At the time of writing, it’s just gone 4AM (and I don’t expect to be asleep for at the least another hour). So, I sleepily say goodbye to my girlfriend as she gets up for work at 7AM after which I doze until roughly 10.30 or 11.00, before getting up and going to work on my ‘fun’ projects like internet comics, novels and attending online literature seminars.
Once nighttime rolls around again, I return to my commercial work (the things that pays), which is why this article will end with a shameless effort to sell you a tv (just in case you were wondering).
The genuine highlight of the day is when said gf arrives home from her job. She puts in a LOT of overtime and she goes to two weekly dance lessons, so we do not get to spend an enormous quantity of time together, especially as her working day comes to an end just as mine begins (she is also far less misanthropic than her accomplice and, as the consequence, in fact has a air of a social life).
There’s a short, shining period where we eat dinner (usually lovingly prepared by me) and relax to watch TV together. We’re both Sci-Fi nerds, so we tend to watch a fair bit of ‘Star Trek’ in its various incarnations, but we also like ‘Cheers’ ‘Seinfeld’ ‘Frasier’ and ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ as well as numerous others.
That may not sound like a great deal of an exciting day, particularly since the most enjoyable part is watching television, but it really is plenty of fun. Sometimes I wish it were more bizarre (and I once, in all honesty, really tried to persuade her to stow away with me on a cruise liner), but watching Telly with my partner is basically the high point of the day.
Support yourself; here comes the sales pitch. Basically, if we had the ultra-modern Samsung 42 inch LED TV, we could enhance that tiny little bit of ‘us’ time even more. About the evenings after we wanted to watch the full film, particularly a thing as superbly photographed as my present favorite film ‘The Hunter’ starring Willem Dafoe, Sam Neill and Frances O’Connor; we’d be absolutely spellbound.
The Samsung smart Television, with its better picture quality and also the chance for studio-quality sound output, could give a new lease of life to any variety of old favourites, and also badass newcomers like ‘Skyfall’.
I recall being in school and having to write an essay on how TV was an awful creation that’s tearing at the core of contemporary relationships, all I’m able to say is that, in my modern relationship, I have found it to be quite the opposite.
When you watch TV even half as often as we do, then you owe it to yourself to invest in a great one (unless you possibly can’t afford it, naturally, then you owe it to yourself to begin saving up and bookmark this page for a later re-read). Joyful viewings!
