The Sunday Salon: I Need to Go On a TV Diet

by Kim on June 5, 2011 · 26 comments

The Sunday Salon.com Today has not been a great day for reading. I feel like that’s becoming a refrain around here!

This morning my friend Erin and I went biking for Ride the Drive, a twice-yearly event in Madison where many of the major streets get shut down to cars and opened for bikers. It was one of the things on my Day Zero project list, so blogged about it with photos more over there.

I got a bit of a sunburn, so since I got back I’ve been bumming around my apartment. I wish I could say I’ve been reading, but that’s not the case. I am easily sucked into watching tv shows, and with so many available on Netflix and other online sites, it seems like I can always find something to watch. Right now I have the first season of NUMB3RS queued up, but I also have Friday Night Lights and old episodes of Psych that Boyfriend and I are watching. And then summer tv will be starting soon… ahh!

I really should cut back on tv… try to just watch an hour a day or something like that, but it’s just so easy to get absorbed in, especially when I’m feeling a little sick and tired from being in New York last week. I want to get back to normal and get back to reading again.

Oh well, we’ll see what happens. I did finish Unfinished Business by Lee Kravitz earlier this afternoon, which I’ll be reviewing this week as part of a TLC Book Tour. I’m not sure what I’ll be picking up next — probably The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth by Alexandra Robbins or Election by Tom Perrotta, depending on my mood.

How is your Sunday going?
