Sent via email this afternoon to the Real Gil:
I'm sorry I'm such a jerk. I DO like that new TV but I absolutely LOVE you. So I'm not sure why I took my anger for the TV out on you. Next time I cannot turn it on, I will not take my anger out on you. I'll smash the TV. :) or walk in the Spirit and avoid this whole mess.
Thanks for the over-the-phone directions. PBS is happily on. Forgive me.
