consumer whore cami rots her brain

I got a phone call from a very rushed Mr. Kaos yesterday telling me he sent me something from some place called hulu and that I wasn't to delete it.

That I needed to go sign up.

That it was something I would like...

I'm not always very good about following instructions (especially for extra internetty stuff) when I've had a day full of children coughing, cleaning and me coughing but none the less, being the dutiful little wife that I am I checked my email and clicked the link sending me over to hulu to sign myself in for their beta.

Um... babies.

Have I ever told you how much I hate watching tv on the computer?

I don't think we've ever discussed it before but it makes me crazy with the starts and stops and not being able to efficiently fast forward, grainy quality and what have you... I like to watch tv while laying back in my bed after a long day and not worrying about stuff. It helps me unwind...

But like I said Mr. Kaos thought I would like it.

He was wrong. Just completely wrong...

For some reason, some unheard of crazy reason I love it.

I pink puffy heart it.

I think it is fanfuckingtastic.

Each episode is brought to you by just one commercial sponsor (at least that was for the case for every episode I watched). That means MINIMAL commercial interruption. Plus... OLD TV. Mr. Kaos almost cried tears of happy ecstatic joy when he realized they had old Dragnet.

If you aren't already in on their beta and you're in the States (sorry my beloved overseas babies... It's not my rule) go get yourself an invite from Techcrunch while they last.

**just a disclaimer... this is free consumer whoring. no one pays me. I don't even get any perks. What's up with that?? Someone should pay me for my insane love of their products... iphone... tivo... cherry coke... wii... ikea... what else have I had good things to say about?

Get on the CamiKaos bandwagon people... pay me to love you.

How timely. I'm just back from England and my brother was saying how he watches TV on the computer [what a non-nerd I am, I'd never even heard of such a thing.]
Thanks for the heads up.
Cheers
