No TV? No Problem!

The week of April 25th to May 1st, 2005 is Turn Off the TV Week. So what are you going to do without all your fave shows to keep you occupied? How about getting a life? Here are a few ideas to get you started!

Take a Hike

Get outside and get in shape. Take advantage of this new-found free time by climbing a mountain, chasing some squirrels of just playing outside at your local park. Not only will you be away from the TV while you're outside, you'll also be too exhausted to watch Survivor after all the fresh air and exercise. <

Shop 'Til Ya Drop

Instead of watching what the celebs are wearing on Entertainment Tonight, why not set your own trends? Get a bunch of your peeps together and hit your fave vintage store or local mall. Since you don't need to worry about rushing home to catch American Idol, you can take lots of time to try out different looks. Use this week to reinvent your style and you'll look smokin' hot in front of the tube next week!

Read a Book

OK, so you've turned off the TV this week but you're still not up to getting off the couch. No prob, just pick up a book. You'll get all the action, adventure and intrigue of your fave TV show, without letting your brain slip into neutral. What a concept!

Board Game Bonanza

Pick up a few new board games or dig out some classics and organize a board game championship battle! All you need are a few friends, a few games and a few snacks. You can judge the championship by most wins, most points or whatever you like. If you're more into card games, why not play a little Pokemon since you're not watching it on TV.

Surf the Net

If you're going through serious screen withdrawl, the Net is the place to be. You can play online games, check out the stats on your fave teams or chat with your pals. Just make sure you don't end up spending hours online - the point of Turn off the TV Week is to turn off all those screens and turn on your life!

("wow.. Maybe I can help you some time." PunMaster offered) he landed on a rock below, and Paperjam was about twenty ahead of him. "Great Job! Now let's go!"

"Oh. Um, OK..." I closed my eyes, and jumped. I hoped that I'd land on something. ​(("Um, I did. It's today." Paps chuckled. "You have no idea how many people I had to enlist..."))

Error didn't answer, he just glanced up giving him a sort of look like 'are you really that clueless?' then went back to his game. Paperjam was visible on a floating rock down below, and he started jumping from rock to rock,. "come on!"  (PunMaster nodded. "If it's tiring, haven't you ever asked to get a break, have someone else do it for you for at least a day?")

"Kid! What the heck are you doing? And what am I supposed to do?" I said this last part to PJ's dad, who barely took notice of me, glued to his phone's screen. ​(("I've been delivering messages in-between cities of the Underground for my brother. It gets really tiring sometimes, but Iron says I've been helping a lot, so I do my best!" He sighed.))

Paperjam grinned. "Come on!" Paperjam grabbed Iron's hand, then ran along the path, until they came to an edge a little way away from where error had been... Only Error was there, sitting on the ground this time, still on his phone. Paperjam let go of Iron's hand, and looked out over the edge, waiting... then he suddenly jumped off the edge, plummeting. Error seemed to have little to no concern about what was occuring.  ("Hmm.. recently? I've been drawing, writing stories, roleplaying.. it's fun." PunMaster shrugged. "You?" )
