national turn off your television week

this week is national turn off your television week...

I already dropped the ball on this one

let me start by saying this....

"My name is GWADZILLA...
and I am a televisionhead"

okay... I said it
I am sorry

National Turn Off Your Television Week

everything in moderation

quality television is not so bad

yesterday after after the boys had dinner I sat down for some Discovery Planet Earth
they boys usually love this stuff...
on this day the boys were not captivated
so I put on some PBS Curious George so I could go downstairs and chew my food
the boys had already been outside hiking with the dogs
it was time to start settling down
I wanted to slow down and chew my food
maybe even taste it before I swallowed it

am I bad?
is this so wrong?

Discovery Planet Earth is awesome!

Why have an interest in something that is only "not so bad"?

I mean, would you willingly accept anything else that's a time-sink that only merits a "not so bad" rating?

Sorry, Gwadzi, one of those days. You racing Greenbrier this weekend?

iconoclasst-

I am about to register to line up with the Clydesdales at Greenbrier
I am not exactly "race ready"
but... I am never really "race ready"
demons surround me always
sorry... I am a creature of habit
I need to break the television habit
maybe if I read more... I would know what the heck you are saying!

Killing my 42" HDTV would be a sin, but the need to cut down on TV is great and must be done I admit. You are right about the "Planet Earth" series it is unreal.

42" man!

Avatar would be awesome on that screen!
