Ten on Tuesday.

This week's topic is ten things to do instead of watch TV. Since I rarely watch TV — no cable, no satellite — I feel imminently qualified for this one. (Just as I felt like an expert on last week's ten things to bring along on a camping trip — I generally feel qualified to offer my opinion on just about anything.)

Ten Things to Do Instead of Watch TV

  1. Read knitting blogs. Duh.
  2. Read the news online. I recommend the New York Times Skimmer. I also skim the headlines in my Google Reader from The Morning News and NPR Topics.
  3. Catch up on other social networking stuff — Ravelry, Facebook, Twitter, whatevs.
  4. Read a book.
  5. Listen to an audiobook (or music or a podcast) and knit.
  6. Talk to your spouse / significant other / kids / housemate / roommate.
  7. Call your mother / father / son / daughter / friend you haven't talked to in awhile.
  8. Take a nap.
  9. Go for a walk.
  10. Clear up that annoying pile of paperwork that has accumulated on the kitchen counter.

Personally, I do #1 – 6 regularly and #10 occasionally. I never call anyone or take a walk, and my naps tend to be earlier in the day than prime time.

    I watch tv so rarely that I’d have to list most of my life activities for this one. 🙂

    Huh. I didn’t know about the skimmer, I like it. I get the NY Times top headlines delivered by email every morning. I think I might like this better.
