I really like your thinking...however I would draw the line at #1. Fortuantely, my television is attached to nothing more than a DVD player, so I don't even know what most of that crap is on the list.

I skied a full day Sunday, went to the Tap room for some beers, went home and fooled around with my girlfriend, and still had time to make the last quarter at a friends party. Didn't watch any of it, but the poo-poos and beer were good. So who was playing?
