I continue the love/hate relationship

October 22, 2007 – Monday

TV is taking over my life. Between football and baseball, I think I’ve spent 12-15 hours a week this month staring at it. Not that I’m complaining about that–we all know October is my favorite month. But there are a few things I have a problem with:

Stupid commercials: Don’t get me wrong, there are a few genius ads out there, but come on! Not only is my intelligence insulted, but there are people getting paid to come up with these monuments to idiocy and others who get paid more to say “Yes! That’s exactly what we’re looking for. Run it!”

ED drug commercials: Why are these running during prime time sporting events? Parents now have to explain sex to their kids as well as why some men have trouble with it. Can you imagine? I’m no prude, but really?!?

Drug commercials in general: I have an entire rant on how medicated our country is, but I’ll save that for another time. But can you believe the side effects some of these drugs have? “Sleepwalking and eating or driving while not fully awake, with amnesia for the event, have been reported.” That sounds good…I’ll have that.

Reality TV: I don’t watch it. I don’t like it. I don’t want to see commercials for it. I think people are becoming more stupid because of it. (Tell me how you really feel!)

I know all of this could be remedied by not watching any TV, but what fun would that be?
