My Newest Time Suck Confession

(Not my photo. What. Are you kidding me?? I WISH. Click on photo for credit).

Random confession – Being able to instantly stream NetFlix movies / TV series at home any time I want and for as long as I want is seriously killing me.

Okay, not killing me, but it’s killing my time management. (Who are we kidding – I never had time management skills. But for the sake of this random thought, we’ll all say I did). At least with DVD’s, I was able to control how much TV watching I did. I watch a movie – movie is over – time to go do something else.

But with instant streaming – THE TV WATCHING NEVER ENDS, YA’LL!

I have seriously watched more TV in these past few weeks than I have in the past few YEARS. I’m even turning my computer off at 6:00 p.m. … SIX IN THE EVENING, YA’LL, so that I can curl up on our comfy couch and watch episode after episode of “Drop Dead Diva,” the ENTIRE SERIES of “Cashmere Mafia,” (which, there was only one season, and then there was only like seven or eight episodes in that one season, BUT STILL), “Lie to Me,” “Damages,” and now I’m putting all of “Grey’s Anatomy” (I’m like on season 5, I think) and “Army Wives,” (which I’m TOTALLY addicted to) in our instant queue as well.

I haven’t been online. (Which is a plus). I haven’t been reading. (Which is not a plus). I’ve been zoning out in front of the TV.

At least I haven’t picked up the habit of munching on junk food as I watch TV.


The biggest reason I don’t watch regular TV is because of the commercials. Hence the reason I’m woefully behind on all of the shows that people are talking about, or TALKED (past tense) about. Now that the time-sucking, evil commercials have been removed from the equation … I don’t have an excuse NOT to do some major catching up.

So, ONCE AGAIN, I have to discipline myself on yet ANOTHER time suck.

AAARGh, it never ends, does it?!?!

I’m so disgusted with myself – I’ve become a … a … there’s no tactful way of saying it so I’ll just blurt it out … A COUCH POTATO!


Make me feel better, Internet. What is your latest time suck?

  1. The instant streaming netflix is definitely addictive. I’ve been watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer reruns with the hubby all summer thanks to netflix.

    Pinterest is probably my newest addiction. I could spend hours there. sigh…
