Haven't Missed TV

With the Writers' Strike continuing and the usual holiday rerun-fest, I haven't turned on the TV in days. Sure, I taped Best Year Ever last Friday night and watched it Saturday, but that's about it. I even have the taped finale of America's Most Smartest Model sitting on the DVR since Sunday night - but I have yet to actually blip-blip-blip through it. I have to wonder - will this break really break me from regular TV watching again? We'll see.

Now, granted, Monday night we did spend a nice evening at my son's school. It was the annual holiday Choir and Band show. This is my son's first year in the band (he plays the French Horn). I have to admit that the 7th grade band sounded pretty good all together - especially since most of them are new to band and have only been playing for the past four months since school started. I found it to be a very enjoyable program.

Truth to tell, I haven't missed it either. If it wasn't for my grandmother's complaints (hey, she's almost 95 so I have to cut her some slack!) ... I haven't even noticed.

Mostly, it's because I haven't watched TV on a regular "appointment" basis for years.

Sure, I do watch TV - I'm not going to sit here and say I don't - but it's mostly if I have some spare time I'll turn on Court TV (Forensic Files is curiously compelling) or a baseball game.

Don't get me wrong - I LIKE Cold Case and Numbers and The Closer and... and the Amazing Race (I've watched only one episode this go round)... and Mythbusters! But that's about as many new shows as I can name. Life's just too good without constantly watching TV.

Sadly for the networks, I think this writer's strike may get a few otehr people thinking the same thing...
