Are You A Couch Potato?
January 31, 2018 12:59pm CST
Sometimes I think I am. I can sit on the couch or in a recliner and watch hour after hour of my favorite shows. However, watching to me is keeping and ear out to listen to what is happening while I am doing other things. What other things? Well, counted cross stitch, designing or actually stitching. I might be doing research, paging through a magazine, or making a piece of jewelry. Most of the time I am writing. I write online in several areas and I am also creating a life for the characters that walk around in my head. No, I am not crazy. I create characters and storylines and give them life. Do you think of yourself as a couch potato? If you are always doing something while sitting on the couch and 'watching' TV does that still mean you are a couch potato? Just asking.

I like your spin on being a couch potato. I spend lots of time sitting in my recliner but like you am busy doing other things while the tv is on in the background. Giving this a second thought I'd say no to being a couch potato.

I guess I think of myself as more of a computer desk chair potato . I don't watch a whole lot of TV, but there are many days when I sit here at the computer and can get carried away online . I suppose there is such a thing as a multi-tasking couch potato .

I don't think you're a couch potato. You have too much going on to be considered one. I don't design, cross stitch, or even look at magazines, but I do have characters crawling through the empty spaces in my head and nudging the sleeping cells to wake up and come to life. I spent a little bit of time with them today.
