Time. Time is on my side. Yes it is. What happens when you have way too much time and no income to speak of? You catch up on a few series that your friends and family have been recommending. First, you have to game the system. I cancelled my cable years ago. I still had internet but once I got laid off, I cancelled that too. Now I mooch off of my neighbor. I do pay for my own Netfix subscription but as far as Hulu and activating other Comcast Chicklets like HBO and Showtime, that is when I get by on a little help from my friends.
Now, let’s get those recommended shows lined up for maximum binging while simultaneously job hunting on the couch. First stop Homeland. Six seasons. That is a lot of couch hours. Perfect! Next stop is the second season of Broadchurch. Brilliant! I love BBC shows. Tonight I am breaking in Person of Interest for the first time. The pilot episode is not a strong showing so far but I trust the Netflix rating system and they think I will rate it above 4 stars. I’ll stick with it. My glory will be an entire five, count them five, glorious seasons.
Peppered in between the season binges I also did one episode of Black Mirror and Making a Murderer, of course. I guess I should also give some time to Serial. I am not one for podcasts but I have heard too many good things to pass it up.
As much as I want an income again, I think I will miss my couch and my episode binging once I finally land a job. Time or money. I never seem to have both. I guess this is the FUN part of FUNemployment. I still wish I had more money than time but that’ll do pig. That’ll do.
