Experiment: One Week Without Television

Occasionally I like to test myself. Do something that makes me a little uncomfortable...see what I am made of.

I will be the first to admit I am addicted to television. If I were to take the time to list every show I watch religiously, well you would be terribly frightened. So I had the thought what would I do if I wasn't watching tv so much? Cleaning? Reading? Writing? Knitting? The possibilities are endless. I might actually go spend time with my family or something.

So I have enlisted my tv watching buddy Cindy to join me in this challenge. We watch "Hung" and "True Blood" together every week at my house. Someone has to suffer with me and since I cannot watch "True Blood" this week, well then neither should she.

We will start this experiment on Friday, July 24th and we will not be allowed to watch tv at all until Friday, July 31st. I think for me the hardest part of this will be ESPN. I sleep with ESPN News on. I guess I will have to rely on all my sports news from the internet for a week. God help me!

I will be blogging updates both here and on Facebook so check it out...find me on Facebook under Blogbuster Sp.

I admire your resolve; I couldn't do it. Are you going to at least TIVO your shows, or would it be cheating to catch up later?

Wow, well I was going to Tivo everything but now that you mention it that kind of is cheating. No TIVO!

Grumpy said...

Good decision. If you tivo everything and watch it later, you didn't give up anything at all.

BTW, a search of Facebook for "blogbuster sp" turns up nothing. If you just joined it may take a few days.
