Sunday Confessional February 27th

I confess. I hate TV. If it weren't for my love of hockey, mainly the Minnesota Wild, I wouldn't ever turn it on. Regular TV shows, movies, and series do not appeal to me.

Part of the reason, I'm sure, is because I work in the electronics department of a big box chain. from the time I get to work until the time I punch out I am listening to TVs, stereos, cell phones, portable DVD players and video games. When I get home I CRAVE peace and quiet.

Books are my love partly because they are quiet! Another reason for my love of books over TV is that books don't seem to slam you in the face with sound effects, crass characters and bright imagery. Books slowly unpeel layer after layer of a character and take their time to vividly describe that characters surroundings and environment.

Nope, I will take books any day over TV. How about you?


  1. My husband is addicted to the t.v.; or should I say he's addicted to his remote control. I can't stand to have the thing on all of the time and I can't stand to watch with him since the show is constantly changing. So I read. But I have to read in the same room or he gets cranky. Very hard to block out that incessant noise!

  2. Lisa, my husband also enjoys me being in the same room as him. So, I'll start out that way and when he's fully immersed in the show I'll quietly slink away...
