Tuesday Wild Card 2.8.11

So my husband comes home and says, "I just ordered a Roku box." I think, great we're having Japanese food and I don't have to cook.

I'm still not sure what it is, but it isn't edible. Apparently, in a few days my family will join the swarms of Netflix, Hulu, Pandora lovers. We will have access to movies and music and no cable bill.

But. We've never had cable TV.

I don't even like TV. All I know is this involves ANOTHER remote control. One more thing to be lost and to blame on the kids. Or the cat. And one more thing I won't be able to use without the assistance of my 11-year-old.

Anyone else have a Roku box? Feel free to make me feel better, if you can. If not launch another topic on today's wild card.
