The writers' strike is making me fat
The writers' strike is making me fat. See, I can't really work out if I don't have something funny to watch while I'm doing it. Comedy is really the only thing that works while I'm working out, because for every other genre I need to be paying close attention to the screen—usually comedies are more amenable to looking away from the screen now and then. Now that there's only one or two new shows a week and even those are going to go away soon, I don't have anything to watch, so I can't work out. I mean, I can break out the Simpsons DVDs or something, but I'd much rather see something I haven't seen a dozen times already.
