Get over it. I am.
I'm not. At all.
However, I've already had a hundred questions about my choice (3), so I'm just going to lay down the rules here for all my followers (3). Without further ado...
Barbara's TV-Free Lent FAQ's
2. What qualifies as "television"?
I'm not watching any of my shows, and I'm not picking up any new shows during Lent. This means not live on my television screen, not recorded over the Slingbox, nothing later on Hulu, Netflix, or the various illegal sites that open 50 windows, most of them porn. I can't find clips on Youtube and slowly piece the entire episode together. I'm not outlawing gif's because those are unavoidable, and those are still pictures... placed sequentially after one another to create movement... DETAILS. Oh, but I DO plan on watching the Oscars because Adele and Norah will be playing and movies and shit.
3. Aren't you going to be a crazy bitch about spoilers?
No, because I'm a decent human being. Plus, I will be reading all about everything always, so let's talk about it. Let's gab. Also, I will allow recreations. They are actually encouraged. Hit me up.
4. Won't your life lack a purpose?
Didn't Christ die on the cross for us so that we might feel worthless and depressed all the time? No? What am I thinking of? High school? I just want to see what I can accomplish with these extra ten hours a week. I've set the bar pretty low, considering the first thing I did with my first TV-free-hour is write about my TV-free-hour.
5. How do you feel about your choice?
SO, there's that. Stay tuned, I plan on journaling my feelings about all of this from here on out... because I have a lot of them.
