i have always been a big fan of the written page, not so much the boob tube. i'd take a book any day over movies.
since i got here, however, it seems like i've been spending most of my time watching tv. it could be because i've run out of books to read and the tv is more accessible than the nearest bookstore.
or it could be because the mindless exercise of sitting in front of the tv is just that -- mindless.
for the past few months i have had a lot of need for mindless entertainment, and the tv has happily obliged.
it actually kept me sane.
so i guess i'll be a bit more tolerant of the idiot box. i have a lot to thank it for. :)
