The picture box is the devil.

Tonight I found myself flipping between Hell’s Kitchen and Reaper. Lately I’ve been eating dinner on the couch, in front of the TV watching either sports (NCAA basketball and MLB baseball) or artsy shows (Dancing With The Stars and American Idol). It could be worse. I could be watching Flavor of Love or The Hills or Moment of Truth.

But take another look at the two shows I caught myself watching. That’s a bad theme. Neither show was on channel 6 or 66…thank heavens! So could this be a sign? Is someone or something trying to tell me that I’m watch too much TV? Am I getting sucked in to the temptation of the airwaves? Are they giving me a false, but hollow sense of pleasure?

Yes, and that someone or something that’s pointing this out is my own brain. It’s suffocating inside my head because it lacks educational and creative stimulation. Maybe that’s why I went to Borders today to look at Spanish dictionaries and tutorials (I won a $25 gift card on concert t-shirt spirit day). But it doesn’t stop there. I also got myself into Sudoku puzzles after seeing someone on the bus working on one…and guess what, I solved a couple!

On the weekends I’m trying to stay active, but on the weekdays I just get home from work and lay on the couch until it’s time to lay in bed. That needs to change, and it starts with boycotting that cube of doom in my living room.
