    -How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    You know, EffEm? I think television is turning on us. Did you know there are now reality shows that follow around meter maids and exterminators? (Not on the same show, but I wouldn't be at all surprised.)

    Because it's awesome? Why do people eat so much cheese? Why do people have so much sex? I don't want this to turn into a giant debate about the merits of television, because that's not what this is about. I'm unabashed in my appreciation. I'm not doing this because I think television is bad for me, or rotting my brain. I just think it would do me some good to give it a rest.

    I'm kind of peeved that I don't have my own show now.

    My husband loves TV, it seems to be from the source of external stimuli, he says he likes the noise in the background and that is one of the things that irritates me about the TV being on all the time.

    TV is nothing for me. I've gone months without any TV/Movies/etc. When I was outside the country I didn't watch any TV and barely used the internet at all due to connectivity difficulties.

    I don't own a TV.

    Going without meat is going pretty well for me so-far. I think I've lost just a little weight and seem to have a lot more energy than before...

    Fat. We love to eat fat, we're attracted to it. We're wired to eat fat, sugar, and salt whenever it is available, and cheese is a great source.

    It's also delicious.

    Why do people have so much sex?
    No clue. It doesn't bother me that it has been over 27 years since I last came in physical contact with that part of a female...

    It's funny; I go in cycles. Sometimes I like the background noise, and other times, it's just irritating. I don't think I'd want to have it on as background noise the whole rest of my life. I'd think there would have to be some compromise there.

    P.S., the cheese-eating and sex-having questions were rhetorical.

    Apparently, it is not compulsory to watch reality tv shows, even if one doesn't give up tv altogether. I've discovered this device, the remote control (in control of the male of the species, naturally) and have realised it can be used to move channels away from all reality television

    I think the larger question you are begging here is: Why do people eat so much cheese while having sex, with the TV on in the background?

    Because they are part of a laboratory experiment to see what happens when every pleasure sensor in the human body is stimulated at once. I keep hoping to get a golden ticket to be part of this experiment

    Edit: I heard from a friend on the lab team. Apparently 87% of subjects have an eye pop out of their head, spontaneously poop, and then lapse into a coma. The percentage rises to 96% when the TV program is The Simpsons, and falls to 44% when the TV program features golddigging hos, aspiring actors, or Rosie O'Donnell.
