Sunday morning television?

I’m at my mom’s place – came over yesterday morning and spent the night here. I’m now sitting with my laptop in the living room with the TV on. They have Satellite TV here, which I am entirely not used to (what with my rabbit ears and sketchy arial four stations at best.) For novelty’s sake, I’ve been flipping through the guide looking for something, anything to watch. My ability to focus on sit-coms is about thirty seconds, before I start stumbling websites and ignoring the television. I’m on to BBC world news right now, which is newsy and which I really don’t feel like watching, but it’s better than anything else I’ve found so far. I should’ve brought a book with me…

Oh wait, they’re playing a Dixie Chicks video on CMT. This will last me at least till the song’s over.

How on earth do people watch TV for hours on end? It’s making me stir-crazy.

Just watch, though – give me a few months at home all day with a baby, and tv will look good or something. There’s a scary thought.

    I find the history or discovery channels can hold my attention for awhile. Good luck with that.

      Lacking cable at home, I don’t have history or discovery, sadly. They’re the only stations I could watch somewhat regularly, I think.
