On the second day of my boycott, I've woken up, showered and shaved my legs, done some writing, washed some dishes, had lunch, and finally watched the eighth episode of Life on Mars that I taped almost a week ago. If it wasn't raining, I'd have gone grocery shopping too.
I'm ashamed to confess that I caught about 5 to 10 seconds of the opening ceremonies last night when I tuned in for Torchwood because I accidentally turned on CBC instead of SPACE. Uh, I'm used to watching Doctor Who and Torchwood on CBC -- when CBC can be bothered to broadcast either show. Anyway, I think I managed to change the channel before completely destroying my principles. I figure I'm probably going to catch clips from the Olympics on the news, so it's not something I can completely avoid. I know the subject is going to come up later today because I'm meeting up with some of my high school friends and one of them is really excited about the Olympics. She's from Hong Kong and has actually taken time off work in order to watch it. In fact, she seemed reluctant to meet up today as it would mean she'd have to tape the Olympics instead of watching it. For some reason, I haven't told her about the boycott. *g*
