Today we set up our new TV. This may turn out to be very dangerous, or it may turn out like everything else, where we're really into it for a little while and then we forget all about it because we're too busy and/or distracted with something else. It's a smart TV, which means we were able to install our anime viewing apps, and that means instead of sitting in our hard computer chairs to watch anime, we can watch it from the comfort of our beds. And after all our busyness all year, we are much more prone to give in to the temptation of binge watching than we used to be. And we decided to check out Wotakoi and it's really good and it was pretty hard to tear ourselves away from it to get ready for bed...
Anyway. I don't really have much else to say, I think. Setting up the TV was a little bit more of an ordeal than we expected, but not really one worth reporting. "Oh no, we didn't realize you have to screw the TV stand onto the bottom instead of it just snapping in place!" And then we couldn't find the screwdriver. But that's just boring stuff.
We did spend some time browsing to see what kind of apps are available, since we had to get Crunchyroll and HiDive and everything. Now we have the BYUtv app, so we can watch aaaaaall the Studio C episodes! We didn't try that yet, though, because they wanted us to sign into our account, and we didn't know if accounts cost money, and usually we're like, "That's okay, if they ask for a credit card number, we'll just stop!" But the TV is so smart, we think it already has access to that information. So we Googled it when we got back to the computer, and it looks like it's free! Woohoo! Watching General Conference is going to be soooo comfy this April.
We also watched the new My Little Pony Christmas special. It was fun, as My Little Pony tends to be. In fact, it's the first show we watched on our shiny new TV! I think it was an appropriate choice.
Today I'm thankful for having our shiny new TV set up, getting to watch the first episode of a fun new-to-us anime, all the shiny apps we have on our new TV (I think Netflix is a little too shiny; frankly, it drives us nuts that a trailer or a clip starts playing for every show if you leave it selected too long--I just wanted to stop and read the title!), our favorite new peanut butter filled chocolate coated sea salt caramel drizzled pretzels still being on sale, and Athena's Christmas present being "in-transit" again (the first time we tracked it, it said it was in transit, then the next time it said it was still be prepared--like it went back in time!).
