Quote that got me thinking

" I find television very educating. Everytime somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book."

Groucho Marx

That never happens to me.

For me the quote would go something like this " I find television very distracting. Everytime somebody turns on the set , I shut the book I'm reading".

To me, the older I become, the more the TV becomes an accessory for the room. I only love documentaries (especially about the Middle East) and Health Discovery.

For such a long time now, all I watch is boxed DVD sets of television shows. In fact, I think this has spoiled me a bit, I can't imagine getting hooked on a show then watching just one episode per week and having to wait an entire week to see what happens next.

My husband also loves documentaries, which is why he is constantly tuning into the Discovery chanel.

He rules.

You are mean.
