Thank You Hulu!

Well, i'm in the hospital, as some of you know. in a nutshell, hospital tv sucks! sorry about the lack of caps, but if i move the right arm, the iv shuts down.

well, at least there's internet and hulu. so far today, i've watched 3 episodes of buck rogers and 2 old battlestar galacticas, and khartoum.

does this work for you?
http://watch.discoverychannel.ca

if it doesn't, just type in the title you want to watch into youtube and it'll most likely be there.
I recommend Air Crash Investigation if you do the youtube method.

Hang in there Crowman and stay out of that P+R place till your digestion clears up(most likely got the Politico Bowel Infection from in there).
Those hospitals will test forever till they can come up with a marketable illness.Spray red paint through a fly-swatter on your face(in Little Rascals),they'll think you have the Chicken Pox and let you out.Or the cotton balls in the cheeks,Voila!,you have the mumps.

Doctors? Who needs doctors? If it ain't broke, don't fix it, right Tom? Seriously, I'll be praying for you. Take care and listen to the doctor.

Bah! Hulu! I wish I could watch it in Canada but it's blocked. Instead I watch tvgorge.com. I'm catching up on Cold Case episodes that never appear on the craptacular CTV network.

Get better, Tom. You are an inspiration to all of us on here who want to loose a few pounds, or a hundred pounds or whatever it may be. Do what the docs tell ya and heal up, spring is around the corner!

I dont really watch TV. Althought I watched a few movies on youtube, in pieces...Tombstone the other night (only seen it about 10 times now) Love that movie!

Rest up now!
