I am the first to admit that I have a serious television addiction. I make myself feel better by thinking things like hey, at least I don’t smoke crack!
It works pretty well.
People often ask how I find the time to watch all the shows I do. It’s pretty easy really…
Firstly, I download every show I watch. With the exception of the movie channels, Discovery and National Geographic I never watch anything on our real time TV. It all gets watched on my laptop or via USB on the TV.
The upside to downloading everything is that I can choose when and where I watch it. The shows sit there waiting for me to get around to watching them, rather than me planning my day around what is on.
I quickly took this photo this evening when I realized I’d forgotten my Project 365 photo for the day. This is a typical scenario in my house. My laptop set up with a TV show (in this case it was NCIS) while I fold the laundry.
I HATE folding laundry. I’m pretty sure everyone does. Why not watch something I like to help pass the time?
I know a lot of people don’t like TV, some don’t watch it at all or even own one. Whatever. To each their own. I happen to love it in all it’s forms… action, comedy, drama, reality TV… I love it all. Like I said, there are worse things I could be into, right?
Feel free to just agree with me.
Speaking of my laptop, it’s still working!! Well, I shouldn’t say still like it hadn’t broken down again, because it did. The day after it died on me I put it to sleep while I went to the hospital and when I came home it was dead again.
Xander did the hairdryer thing again and it fixed it. So now I’m afraid to turn it off or put it to sleep. Whatever it is that cools down, it makes my laptop not work. We are pretty sure that replacing the video card will fix it, but that itself is 200 euro. If it turns out to NOT be just the video card we’d be out 200 euro that could have gone towards a new laptop.
Although… no new laptop would live up to Xena (that’s what we call her). She’s big and tough, with a 20.5 inch monitor and lots of space for me to do all sorts of things at once.
It will be a sad day in the Soldaat household when I lose her. A sad day indeed!
