I don’t watch much TV. It takes away from shop time. And most of it is garbage anyway. But I do catch a show or two, or watch a movie from time to time, on my computer. And I hate to admit it, I enjoy reruns as much as the next guy. I’ve spent countless hours and wasted precious life re-watching Star Wars, James Bond, Indiana Jones, Bad Boys, Kelly’s Heros, Sweet Home Alabama, etc… Why would anyone watch a show more than two or three times? It’s not like changes suddenly appear. But now I’ve finally found a way to justify time in front of the idiot box – SANDING! And by “sanding” I mean “hand sanding” (I tried sanding with my rotary tool and couldn’t see the screen). Since neither require rapt attention, they are the perfect combination. Now I just have to find a way of keeping the sawdust from getting all over my desk and chair and rug.
