American TV

American TV Is amazing.  I don’t care if people say it’s trashy or wrong.  I love it.  Having been in the UK for 4 months now I’m really missing Bravo, Food Network, Cooking, ABC, NBC, TLC, and Style.  The list could go on and on and on. I haven’t even watched OWN yet!

Well we have found the answer.  I’m actually sitting in my living room in London watching Live with Regis & Kelly right now.  How you ask…..

SLINGBOX!

We set it up on a TV in NJ and we watch it though our computer.  Now you’re probably thinking “but it’s a 5 hour different so you aren’t going to stay awake until 1am just to watch primetime TV”.  Well that’s where DVR comes in.

We are happy campers now!  American TV in our London flat…GENIUS!

Rachael Ray’s on…gotta go.

One Year Ago Today….

I woke up to an email saying I got into my top choice school.  I was so excited to know that our plan was actually happening.

Sorry I don’t have any photos to insert here (not putting my school name on here for obvious reasons).

And 1 year later I’m 2 exams away from finishing my first semester of my Masters program, living in London in my amazing flat in Notting Hill with my amazing boyfriend, meeting people from all around the world but still mainly hanging out with Americans for some reason. 

LIFE IS GOOD.

 

Brrrrr…..It’s Cold In Here

It’s starting to get cold in London.  I’ve been trying to not wear my winter jacket yet but I have worn it once so far.  It’s going to be in the 50s this week so I’ll stick to my lighter jacket until absolutely necessary.  We control the heat in our flat which I like but the problem is the thermostat (it’s not really a thermostat but that’s the only word I could think of).  We aren’t really sure how to turn it on correctly.  There aren’t any words on it and it reminds us of IKEA direction, no words only symbols.

A closer look.

The text you see in the photo above doesn’t say anything important.

We just press on and wait for the flame to start up and then let it go but if anyone knows exactly how to work this thing please let me know!

Disclaimer: Parents – We aren’t cold and our heat works so stop over-analyzing this post.

When You Have Too Many Things On Your Mind

You miss things such as the fact that even though your cable hasn’t been officially connected there are free channels that you can watch as long as your TV is plugged in.  I was tired of staring at our beautiful new TV  just sitting there so I decided to plug it in and give it a go.  Well as soon as I turned it on I realized that we have over 30 channels that we could have been watching over the past 3 weeks!!!

So frustrating but at what are you going to do.

So today I have watched a ton of TV including multiple episodes of Friends, The Wedding Planner, and The Devil Wears Prada.  I think 27 Dresses will be on in 2 hours so you better believe that I’ll be on my couch watching it.

Oh and I’ve also discovered that I can “steal” a neighbors internet so I’m currently on my couch watching TV and blogging.  Life is good.

Good Luck

We wanted a plant or flower in the flat so we decided on a good luck bamboo plant.  It’s supposed to last forever as long as we put water in it every other day.  As of today it’s still alive.  We’ve had it for 4 days.

It’s a win win situation – good luck and a plant that lasts forever.
