Sick of the 'boob tube'!!!

The best kinda tv!


Well, I'm about ready to chuck that stupid box off the deck!  After 3 months of very limited viewing on the part of the kids (and that was on days off while staying with friends) they have been in front of that evil contraption every chance they get.  I am so sick of it's constant prattle and annoying commercials!!  Such silliness and brainless entertainment!  So, it's time for an intervention!  Time to take back the living room!  Time to get butts off of couches and outside where life really happens!  I will be announcing the 'shut down' of our satelite tv system for an unknown length of time today.  It has been threatened...it will now be carried out...really!  I mean it!!!  I'm not kidding!  Well, I guess I should postpone it until after the wedding...or after we get back from our Disneyland trip....Trev will be all alone here then and would probably appreciate the company..and the news...yeah, there's that.  So, I guess I'll have to put up with the sense assaulting thing for awhile longer.  Hmmm...I guess I could just shut it off and make them go outside! duh!!!!  But, come our return from Disneyland and it WILL happen!!!  Really!!!  There can't possibly be a bigger waste of time than tv!!  Especially when there are so many things that need to be done around here!!  Which reminds me...better go let the chickens out for their daily constitutional! Rant over!  On with the day!

    I know exactly what you mean about the TV being a time waster. It seems to suck you in and production comes to a halt. You can feel busy even when your not, just because of the distraction it causes. It can definately be a black hole. We have one in nearly every room in our house and it seems like it's on more often than not. Sometimes they are all on and half the time no one is even watching. My husband just seems to need the noise on. He would say it's how he relaxes. I still haven't figured out how a loud, annoying, racket is relaxing. I rarely watch because I always seems to have other things to do.....that being said the computer can be equally bad for wasting time. LOL
