Why Is It???

People are so surprised when they ask if I watched some TeeVee show and I reply that I have not watched any TeeVee, willingly in a loooongg time.

Happens all the time at work. They’ll look at me with surprise, confusion and ask what I do then.

I read.

A lot.

I listen to music.

A lot.

I spend much time outside puttering around the yard, my garden, in my garage workshop.

I go fishing.

Not enough though!!

Well how do you get your news and know what’s going on in the world they’ll ask??

I have a ton of news sites and such in my RSS reader.

I refuse to watch some pretty boy/girl on a freaking TeeVee warble away talking points and meaningless words.

And they still don’t understand and think I’m a bit weird…

That’s okay, they also think I have a bunker somewhere…

I’m not saying anything about that!!

    Same here!! I have not watched broadcast for about 10 years. Every once in a while I will tune in a special or some sports event (besides the NFL).

    I read constantly. I take care of my dog. I visit friends and otherwise try to do things that matter instead of filling my head with the crap they put on as ‘entertainment’.

    I haven’t watched live TV in about 20 years.
    Other than while visiting family or at the airport/bar/restaurant type of thing. I also get the same reactions. What little TV or movies I do watch, I download and watch on my computer. Commercial free and the libs don’t make a penny from me.
