Prompt: Write for (another) ten minutes without stopping.
For the seventh time, I get to write about anything in ten minutes.
I just found out that “The Millers” has been cancelled. Too bad – it was starting to turn into a good show. But I heard that its numbers were down after four weeks on Monday night and was dragging down CBS’ new hit “Scorpion” which I had low expectations for that have been quite exceeded.
I’m curious as to how “Empire” on FOX in January is going to fair. January always sounds like a great month for new shows to premiere and maybe capture a brand new audience but in reality, it is quite hard sometimes to get attached to a new show and if the ratings are not good after a few episodes (imitates cutting of throat).
So this year is nearly over. I’m finally getting back into uploading videos to my YouTube channel that is still, after two years and some change, a work in progress. I’m thinking about restarting my news show that centers on trending topics in music, sports, videos, and news.

Our furnace has to be replaced; the old one is early 20 years old. Some techies came over and looked at it. They said they would replace it free of charge unlike some previous technicians who said it would cost over 800 dollars to fix it. The control board melted from the heat getting so high in the furnace. Something about Freon having to be drained as well as it being illegal to replace a furnace with an old, used one that would be cheaper than getting a new installation. We have a downward air furnace, the techs said, which is a bad thing since those aren’t used in many homes, aren’t manufactured. We live in a mobile home and have the short end of the stick when it comes to innovation and remodeling. Can’t do much because we basically live in a limited box on cement slabs.
I hope to get a job in 2015. The 30th anniversary of the first film in the Back to the Future trilogy is set for November and the 10th anniversary of YouTube’s founding is also set for that month – I can expect a huge celebration online, with some of the biggest stars coming together to create a video commemorating the grand occasion.
