I give up.

Today’s subtraction project prompt deals with your TV viewing habits which got me thinking about mine. Two things in the last year or so have had drastic impacts on my TV watching. Turning Off The Cable We disconnected our cable TV and turned in our DVRs several months ago. And in the big picture? This has not fazed me as much as I thought it would. I still have the same amount of problems finding something to watch when I’m in the mood to vegetate, which is: NOT OFTEN. There is still plenty of stuff to watch between Hulu and...

Putting Way Too Much Thought Into My Entertainment Choices

It’s no secret that I love television, but I have mixed feelings about getting hooked on the type of shows everyone gets hooked on. In actuality? I get very angry at 99% of television.
