What do you get when you cross a person addicted to watching television regardless of what’s on with a need to lose 250 pounds? You get Mr. Tv. A man that is so hooked on watching television that he has a set within sight and turned on for no less than twenty hours a day.
Things are changing though. Since he made the determination to lose the weight, he’s actually got a purpose for his tv watching now. It started with workout programs, followed by programs about all manner of health issues that relate to obesity and losing weight.
Even though he works nights in a job that does not allow him the luxury of taking the day (or night, as the case may be) off, he’s planning to skip work for the first time in fifteen years because Jillian Michaels is going to be on The Tonight Show and he’s determined that he’s not going to miss it even if it means his job.
He’s also taking things a step farther in that he’s no longer satisfied with simply watching a program once it’s been broadcast. He is now saying that he’s going to start being in the studio when the shows he considers most important are being taped.
Of course, as you may have guessed by now, he is a lifelong resident of Nutjob Hills, the son of two of the most infamous (well, infamous around here that is) crackpots of all time.
He’s also said that terrestrial television is no longer enough. He’s going to start getting involved with SETI because he wants to be the first one watching whatever it is that alien life is broadcasting when it’s detected.
He’s a most determined and resourceful person, when he decides to do something, one way or another it gets done.
I’m just glad he’s not into fireworks.
