I went on a date a couple weeks ago, dropped $140 on dinner partly by mistake (had never been to or heard of the place, opened the menu and the cheapest thing was $30, damn it). Went back to her place, she went to HBO Go which she was using a friends login for but found that she was logged out. So I logged in through my account, we start watching movies, etc. and the rest of the night goes really well. She confirms that she wants to go out the next night.
The next night, I cancel some other plans so we can go out. I text her a few times over the night but never get an answer. The next morning she says she fell asleep when she got home (around 5pm) and we’d go out later that night. Later that night comes and she has another excuse that we can’t go out and that she’s going to have a busy week so maybe we can get together next week. Fast forward a week and she finally breaks things off by way of cliche.
Last night, I log in to HBO Go and see that Game of Thrones was the last watched show even though I had been watching Flight of the Conchords the night before. She’s a big GoT fan so I know it was her. Thought about just changing the password to force her to log out but I felt like giving her false hope instead. So I turned on the parental lock. Now she’ll be able to make it all the way to the episode selection screen before she’s denied!
The Sesame Street of your childhood has changed. Elmo has moved into a new apartment, Big Bird has a new nest and Oscar the Grouch is hanging out in recycling and compost bins, alongside his usual trash can.
But the biggest change may be how you watch Sesame Street. The 46th season of the classic children’s show premieres Saturday on HBO, the subscription-based network that’s home to provocative shows like Game of Thrones and Girls. New episodes of Sesame Street will air on its traditional home, PBS, nine months later.
