The post title is a play on the old Chili’s commercial… I want my babyback, babyback, babyback ribs. Chillll-i’s babyback ribs…
(If you are not American, you can see it in an action here, where Michael Scott from The Office sings it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=07kgCNSB8AI. :P)
As you can see from the above photo, there was a knock on the door yesterday. I opened it and saw my landlord on the other side holding an Optimum/Cablevision plastic bag. Inside was a cable box and even a new remote! He said they were giving them away for one year free (after that I believe the monthly charge applies).
The crazy thing is now I have at least 10 times as many channels as I did before I lost cable in the first place… Good times.
