Operation No TV: FAIL

As an update, I have failed miserably with the idea of Say No to HBO.  I just don't think I'm a cold turkey quiter... However, I do think that I do NEED to tone down the amount of television I watch. So, I have started to do that.  But its hard with Modern Family coming back, Broadway Empire starting this Sunday (in replacement of TrueBlood & Entourage), & Its always Sunny in Philadelphia - started last night.  Right there, I just listed 3 nights of TV...not to mention VT football games, Phillies baseball (which are on almost every night), this just seems harder than I thought imaginable.  Maybe I need to just subscribe to Melanie's mentality- That she's not cutting out TV and she's fine with being a lesser person because of it. haha. You have to love Melanie's thought process- its so convenient!

I'll keep you posted, but most likely you'll just hear about how HILARIOUS Charlie is on Its Always Sunny- God, I love him in his battered thermals.

Happy Weekend!

Digital Addiction

So, I was catching up on one of my favorite blogs: ...Seeks in the city and the latest entry got me thinking...Say NO to HBO?!?!! She has to be nuts- my best friend is honestly suggesting we go through a TV Detox in the midst of TrueBlood, Entourage, the end of baseball (Phillies are in first) and the start of College Football- GO VT! Actually, a TV detox would actually do me wonders. The amount of productivity that could flourish would be astonishing. But how do we just walk away from our favorite programs?  What would we contribute at the Monday morning water cooler converstation when everyone will inevitably bring up Saturday and Sunday's football games and all the great Sunday night programming? I know what I should do... I should say NO to HBO, but that seems almost impossible. What if I gave up TV during the work week?  Hey, my parents didn't let me watch TV on school nights as a kid, maybe I COULD do it again.  Stay tuned, pun intended, you might be getting a lot more blog entries with my new found time :)

Does Hulu count?
