Kill Your TV

This week at my 2nd graders school, is Turn Off Your TV week.
The hell you say!
I have said many times, and will say many more, the greatest luxury in my life is watching TV in bed. It's my opinion and I'm sticking to it!
I love love love my TV. I love watching the Travel Channel and Food Network more than anything else.
No one in the house is watching TV this week. HHHEEEELLLLPPPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's not that we watch that much really. The girls are in school, A is working and I am cleaning or doing something during the day. Also, my house is a split level and there is no TV in the common area of my upstairs. The big screen is downstairs and I am never down there during day light hours unless I am doing laundry. With that said, I watch absolutely no until about 7 in the evening. I do not watch the news. I didn't even know about the whole volcanic ash/airline crisis in Europe until about 5 days after it happened.
But for some reason, when you tell someone the can't do something, that's ALL THEY WANT TO DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hell, even when I was in Thailand, I watched Thai news in bed even though I did not know one word being said!
My kids only watch movies that we start for them, Finnius and Pherb, or the Discovery Channel. I am not that worried that they are addicts. They are never ever ever ever ever going to watch crap like Hannah Montanna, or The Suite Life, where kids act like assholes and talk to adults like the are equals. Kids are sassy enough without giving them the idea that they can talk like that.
Nothing much has changed from this TV-less week. Maybe a little more itunes, but Elton John never made a kid a serial killer...did he?

Peace Out

Fun Times

This weekend I went to a book signing. It is a cookbook written by one of my favorite bloggers, The Pioneer Woman. Her blog is hilarious and the girl can cook! It took me about 5 hours to get through the line. It was pretty interesting. We all stood around waiting for our own brush with fame. The fame of a person we could all relate to. She's a mother, a wife, a business woman, and a spanx wearer. Who wouldn't want to meet her?
While I was at the bookstore, I recognized a woman whose blog I read all the time. She's from the Seattle area just as I am. How strange to read the words of someone all the time, yet not really know them. Yet you feel like you do.
It was nerdy fun I tell you!

Peace Out
