I'm sitting here crosslegged on the floor, playing with my big heavy red balls with the TV on to distract me.
No, heh. That's not what I mean.
See, I'm an extremely out of shape out of practice wannabe juggler. So, in effort to get some practice and build back up some juggle muscles, I'm currently repeatedly tiring myself out with my Exerballs. If you've never heard of them, they are big heavy lead filled vinyl juggling balls.
The crosslegged part adds a bit of extra motivation in that if I drop them, they either bounce and roll across the room, or they land on my other big red balls. As you can imagine, I'm really trying hard not to drop them.
In any case, this is the first time I've watched "live" TV in some time, and I'm blown away by just how fascinating I'm finding advertisements. I just saw a Gortons Fish commercial that cracked me up, and then saw a trailer for the Larry the Cable Guy movie that made me cringe. Also, simply trying to find something on to watch is nearly impossible. I don't know how people watch tv like this.
