I usually do...or I listen to music. My dear husband is watching a DVD concert now - Rammstein is the name of the group (it is not metal, not hardrock, I don't know what it is). They are famous in America, too (although they "sing" in German). The arena in France is full to the top...and I am wondering how can these people like this music???
AHA! I don't know why, but I've always assumed you were a single guy. Why do folks-like me for instance-do this? Assume. I imagine it's a way to categorize people in one's memory. Any psychologists in the house?
Yep, might be why I take so long to finish a hub. My husband has Family Guy on netflix right now. I hate the show but I'm still watching it. I resent that Cagsil my brain cells are shiny and pretty. Nice to see you back in the forums.
Not a chance,dont get me wrong i love my tv but i cant concentrate,so my laptop is at the breakfast bar in the kitchen and i do most of my work there,i get 2 days off in the week so i tend to have those days to myself which makes it nice to work on hubs then.
yep but always found myself bored with the shows on lately and wandered off to do something else unproductive. Same with going to the movie theater, 2 or 3 hours is a long time to have to sit in the dark and hopefully no screaming kids are there. Netflix and video games takes care of my entertainment needs. You can have dinner and a movie at home for the same cost as two tickets and a large soda at the theater.
Truthfully, my wife gets annoyed if I use my iPad while watching TV.
Unless she wants me to look up something, of course.
The most common thing I'm apt to be doing is playing Scrabble, not hubbing.
We seldom use the TV for anything but Netflix, though. Wednesday nights we watch Modern Family and we do watch Dancing with the Stars when that is on, but not much else regularly. My wife likes Desperate Housewives, which I will watch with her to keep her company, but I do not like it.
You are the master of those FB games, that's for sure. Pcunix slaughtered me in both Scrabble and Lexulous. We didn't even complete games since I was incredibly far from success. I bow to your superiority in this matter, dear Pcunix! But watch out for my superiority-it's everywhere!
If I had a bigger apartment, I would have a separate writing room. Then it would be in the other room from the TV. I do like to listen to music when writing though; something like Van Morrison or Billie Holiday or Steely Dan.
I do have the television on while I am hubbing, but I generally do not watch it while I am working. I like to have it on to keep me company. I also get a few ideas for new hubs when an advertisement or tv show catches my attention. You never know when a tiny idea can turn into a great hub!
That's me exactly! I would say that about 75% of the time, I'm not even looking at the TV, but sometimes, something will catch my ear. I do listen to music sometimes, but not nearly as often as having the TV on.
I just arrived back on the ship about an hour ago, and there's nothing here ... no TV, no radio - nothing. Just me and my computer. But the connection is so slow, it's painful; I go out to smoke a cigarette while the pages are changing, and when I come back again, they still haven't fully changed. I want to go home.
Oh, this isn't a normal ship. It's always docked. I'm allowed to go off board (apart from going to the college) between 5:30PM and 10:30PM, but there's nowhere to go in this dreary place called Homberg, Duisburg. Only another 11 weeks, and my life will be back to normal until next year.
Noooo! I'm so horrible with background distractions. If I am in really deep thought over a Hub or anything else I am writing, I tend to need a ton of silence. Yet... when I don't have my thinking cap on, I'll be playing with my phone, watching tv, playing a fb game on my laptop... etc. My brain flops when it use though, haha.
I think I have turned on my TV probably 10 times in the last 4 years. I find that television really dumbs us down. (I believe that is how the expression goes.) Television used to be entertaining in a...
The Effects of Tuning into TelevisionThere are twenty-four hours in a say. You spend eight at work and perhaps a total of 2 hours commuting back and forth from work. What are you doing with the rest of your...
This is pretty mind blowing.I got a call the other day from a TV production executive about one of my old articles called 101 reasons to stay single (which is funny, because I'm now happily engaged, haha) Apparently, it...
Hi! Hubbing is great, plus writing and reading can be equally rewarding. Will you ever incorporate an arrow for the first page, and an arrow for the last page. With so many hubs, writers, and topics, it would be great...
All these posts.... Makes you wonder, doesn't it?Well, after the thread yesterday that said the forums were pretty boring, I guess it was only a matter of time before someone would try to shake things up.
