They called and asked if I would like to participate. They sent $30 in cash and two booklets, one for each TV set that I own. I am now supposed to record what shows I watch each day, in 15 minute intervals.
TV is supposed to be passive entertainment. Now that I have to fill out paperwork for my TV veiwing, I've been spending more time on the computer. Everytime I feel the impulse to turn on the TV, I think "Ok, I should log this." I have gotten to the point where I am now too lazy to watch TV. The reporting period started Thursday the 8th, and today is the last day of the reporting period. So far all I watched was football and cartoons.
