Thank you Vera!
I won Vera’s January 6th blog contest. She asked where the line, “Go on, go on, go on,” comes from and who says it. She gave the hint that it is a television show. The answer, of course, is Mrs. Doyle in the Britcom Father Ted. Keep your eye on Vera’s blog because she intends to have more fun contests to help her destash a bit.
All that said, I have a confession to make. We do not own a TV.* Neither of us has had one for eight years. We’ve been married for four. Please don’t turn us in to the authorities. ;-)
Seriously though, both of us actually like TV, but a combination of circumstances and various roommates with TVs found us both without ownership of one when we met. It seemed like a good thing, so we kept it that way. We’re not anti-TV. We watch it when we visit friends and family and when we’re at hotels or the beach place. But, believe it or not, it’s kind of nice not to have one in the house.
*Okay, I do have a very, very old 12″ black-and-white I keep tucked away in a closet. I’ve pulled it out three times: Hurricane Floyd, the 2000 election, and 9-11.
