Life without Cable (and why I am better than you)

I think I have written this blog once already.  But I just had another amazing bout of "I am better than you." That I felt like I needed to share.

I just tried to watch some of Real Housewives of New York. And I did not like that show, at all.

But I used to be able to watch it for marathons at a time.

It's fun that "marathon" a totes grueling activity is now used to describe blocks of America's Next Top Model on VH1, right?

"I've completed a marathon." 


"Me, too! I can't believe that Jeana left the franchise, I mean what is she going to do?  Actually sell real estate? Bitch, please."


"No, I meant I ran 26.something miles."


"Ohhhh, I switched back and forth from Bravo and VH1 for 9 hour straight while eating my weight in Tostitos and con queso dip. Sometimes I watched a little HGTV if it was an episode I had already seen."

I just realized there is a caveat to me being better than you.  And I am reluctant to admit this.  But what if you have cable, and you don't watch shitty horrible TV shows? Oh god, is that possible?  That you might actually have restraint enough to turn off the TV when you don't want to watch anything?

I still watch TV constantly without cable, but now it's just PBS and local news.  And then when Judge Judy comes on shit gets amazing for half an hour.

Oh no, I am still worse than you, aren't I?  It doesn't matter who has cable and who doesn't.  I still have the taste to be entertained by trash.

Okay, well fine.  I mean really worse case scenario here is that nothing changes in our relationship. You continue to read books and I will continue to try and watch tv while at work.

Dear Karin,

Hypothetically, what would happen if I watched a marathon of Deadliest Catch in the gym while running 26.something miles on a treadmill? Does that count as two marathons?

Sincerely,
Regretful Runner
