Holiday Hiatus

I watch too much TV.  I admit it.  I love TV but I watch too much of it.  Whenever I watch my favorite shows, I always wonder how the people in TV shows get so much done.  They always seem to have so much free time.  Finally, it struck me:  It's because they don't watch TV.  I almost never see people in TV shows watching TV.  Their living rooms aren't built around TV's like most normal people's are.  They say that TV doesn't teach you anything but I say they're wrong.  TV is obviously trying to tell me that I shouldn't be watching TV.

I am not, by my nature, a social person.  I have difficulties keeping up social interactions.  Some would say that I am an introvert.  They're probably right.  My brother is an extrovert.  The difference between us is that constant interaction recharges his batteries, whereas it drains mine.  So in order to recharge my batteries, I'm taking a little hiatus from being on-line.  I'll still do my end of the year post, but I won't be tweeting or FBing or blogging for most of the rest of the holidays.

Thank you all for your support this year.  It's been really amazing.  And I hope that next year and the year after will continue the trend.  I hope you all enjoy the holiday season and don't get stressed out.  Holidays are about hanging with the people you love, not fighting the hordes at the malls to buy someone something they're probably going to regift anyway.

Enjoy the holidays and I'll see you all in 2011.

Oh, and turn off the TV and go outside, it's supposedly awesome out there.


  1. I'm so thankful for DVRs so I can watch my few shows when I have the time. Which sometimes means that I have ten episodes waiting for me in the summer!
    Enjoy your holidays!

  2. I hope you have a wonderful holiday, Shaun. Stay warm, stay safe, and enjoy things in whatever manner allows you to relax the most.


Keep it clean, keep it classy, and jokes are always appreciated.
