I have been so completely lazy for three quarters of this weekend that I'm starting to believe what my parents told me about TV...
See, we say that computers, smartphones, digital tablets are rotting the brains of our youth but back in the day we were told of the evil of the original mind sucking enemy, destroyer of intellect, thief of gumption....the dreaded TELEVISION.... Baaawwwwwaaaaaaaa!!!!!!
How many times as a kid did I hear "turn that damn TV off and go outside" I cannot count. Today I finally did just that. I cleaned off my truck in anticipation of tomorrow morning, re-shoveled the path to it, cleared the dog's "potty runway" and even just walked around a little and breathed some fresh air. Dang.
So much time in front of the TV has, however, made many important thoughts and questions swirl around in my head. World changing stuff like...
Are those prepackaged Atkins Diet meals supposed to look appetizing?
Ugggghhh Uther is such a hateful man he should have died sooner.
Wow, I never knew vampires could have so many problems...
Why do I still jump out of my skin when zombies pop up out of nowhere during movies I have seen 27 thousand times?
Does juicing really make stuff taste good or does it mostly taste like it looks?
Is Colin Farrell seriously going to be in a drama (supernatural or not) that comes out on Valentine's Day?
What exactly is in those Ageless Male pills?
Is there any beer in this house cause this show would be much better with beer...
Why is TWD marathon still on season III every fraking time I flip to AMC?????
Why is the dog staring at the door is there a zombie out there too?
How many people are making all these hand-made wrap bracelets that are "one of a kind" and on sale now?
Are all the match dot com women really this attractive?
Are all FBI agents really this attractive?
Hollywood Hillbillies meets People of Walmart at a family reunion...how many teeth do you suppose they have between them?
Why am I not watching that creepy Bates Motel show?
I wonder if it will ever actually quit snowing?
I should nap. Naps are good.
Why does the dog's breath smell like butt? God, don't answer that.
Are these old people really married and how can anyone be this excited over a Swiffer?
Atlanta has real housewives?
I wonder if this TV will self destruct from not being on ESPN for a week?
Farmers Only Dot Com?
Will this squirrel ever stop tormenting me and just stay the hell out of my bird feeders?
Do my toenails need trimmed?
Yup, still on season III...
What I'm sayin' is that it is probably a good thing tomorrow is Monday. I wasn't really meant to be this much of a couch potato after all :)
