No TV In Kitchener

When I was living on my own in Melbourne, Australia, I didn’t have a TV set. I love watching TV, and because I usually work from home, I knew that having a TV would be too tempting a distraction. So I never got one. This freed up all my spare time to work on my real interests, mostly to do with web design. And whenever I had the urge to watch a movie, I’d just go to the cinemas. In fact, I’d usually catch a movie with my son, John, when he came to stay with me on the weekends.

And there’s no TV in Kit’s home either. But there are over 350 videos! I’ve been in Kitchener for almost 4 months, and I’ve watched a video probably every 2nd day.

But I’ve also seen a couple of films at the cinemas, and a couple of plays as well.

So here’s a complete list of the videos, movies and plays I’ve seen in Kitchener …
