In an effort to cut down on the time I waste watching TV, I decided to work on my computer after the girls were in bed. So far, I have read 4 blogs, scanned CNN, and watched a whole documentary on Liberia. All on my computer. I am not sure, in fact I am convinced, that zoning out for an hour and a half in front of the computer is really no better than TV. Except for the fact the laptop doesn't have a remote, so I am forced to mostly watch one thing at a time. I can't endlessly channel surf and watch 6 shows in a hour, which is really not watching anything.
In case you are interested the Liberia documentary can be found at www.vbs.tv . It is a great site but VERY GRAPHIC. Beware if you have a weak stomach or children in the house.
Tomorrow I may actually turn off the TV and the computer.
