Last Minute Christmas Gifts, Courtesy of Your TV and Couch

Published by:

It wouldn’t be Christmastime if it wasn’t for folks waiting until the last minute to buy gifts for friends and family. You have been meaning to go shopping, but you never seemed to be able to fit the right day and time. Now the clock is ticking, and it is your do or die moment.

Well, don’t fret. There are still many great gift giving options available. Whether you decide to brave the stores, or do a little online gift giving, you will look like a real winner this holiday season. And the best part: you don’t have to spend a lot of money or even leave the comfort of your couch.

Gift Cards

This is a great Christmas gift idea for someone in your life who “has everything.” You can buy a gift card for someone’s favorite things. For example, if you have a coffee lover on your list, a coffee/ cappuccino mug, k-cups or ground coffee from their favorite place (Peet’s, Starbuck’s, etc.), and snacks (biscotti or coffee cookie sticks) are nice ideas.

The best part is that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your couch. With modern technology, you can shop and watch your favorite programs at the same time. If you have a person that is going through a financial crisis during the holidays, he or she would really appreciate a gift card from Target, Walmart, or a local grocery store.

There are a couple of ways you can go about this. You can either have your laptop on the couch with you. Or, you can get internet service through your television. The choice is really up to you.


If you are trying to think of what to give the seniors in your life, it can be a task. You want them to have something special, but you don’t even know where to begin to look for a Christmas gift. Why not try HSN?

HSN offers everything. From clothes for older adults to food products, you will find something for everyone on your list. One of the best things about HSN is that it is ALWAYS running some sort of special or deal. I mean, I have seen some items (nice clothing, kitchen sets, etc.) that you can’t find in a store that were offered at a big discount.

The Christmas holiday can be a stressful time. You are trying to make sure that all the important people in your life are happy with what you get them. However, thanks to home shopping via your television, it can be the most wonderful time of the year.

Reasons to Watch TV

Published by:

If you’re like me you likely go back and forth between wanting TV and not wanting TV.

Since I apparently have a huge TV addiction, people that surround me will tell you that TV is the last thing I need.

But here’s the thing,

I’m not the most social person in the world and I really don’t go out too much.

Actually, I was so happy when the grocery deliveries came around because I literally never have to leave home. Continue reading

The Best Snacks for Television Watching

Published by:

Let’s talk about food.

My favorite topic really.

If you have one of those kitchens that are open and you can look into your living room while watching tv and working on your computer at the same time, then you likely have my dream home.

I would love to be able to make things like fudge and cookies while watching tv on my pc or the television at the same time that I was making delicious Christmas treats or anytime treats.

My Little Pony

Published by:

I was watching my friend’s daughter the other day and all day long all she watched was My Little Pony.

I had no idea they even had a cartoon of this nature anymore and I was totally surprised at the content in the show that a four year old watches.

The episode I watched had something to do with Crystal Ponies and the Twilight Sparkle Pony (who is the leader).

The whole thing was about teamwork and it was really a good little show.

I question some of the larger words they use (like nemisis) and wonder how much the four year actually gets from it but overall I’m impressed with this little My Little Pony cartoon and wonder if maybe I should watch them more often.

It’s been a long time since I have watched cartoons and I am curious how Continue reading

Kill Gilligan and You Can Leave The Island

Published by:

I’m not usually the murderous type but there are a couple of characters out there, that even rewatching them on You Tube give me the anger of a Titan and the murderous rage of a cat in an enclosed room full of fat overweight mice.

Let’s talk about Gilligan from Gilligan’s island.

Every single stinkin time that the cast was going to get rescued…..along came Gilligan.

To a point, it was everyone else’s fault because he continued to do stupid crap that prevented them from leaving and they continue to allow Gilligan to exist. Continue reading

ALF. The things you can watch on a computer!

Published by:


Alien Life Form or whatever it is called.

I love that I have found the episodes of ALF again.


Because it brings back my childhood.

Alf was one of those shows I watched when I was young and is one thing I remember that wasn’t so bad from my childhood.

As stupid as Alf was, his little loving family show gave me a place to go and learn sarcasm at a young age.

Maybe that’s what I want to kill Gilligan? Continue reading

TV Sloth’s TEST of the PC World

Published by:


Did you ever wonder what the impact of your life living on the computer and watching tv all the time had on your family?

If you are one of those TV sloth’s, like me, then you might very well have a good idea what I’m talking about.

If I’m not watching TV, I’m on my computer playing those addictive computer games and recently I found that you can gamble just like you do in the casinos with some of those games too!

Did you know you can even gamble on your own weight loss?

Probably not something that I should do since I am morbidly obese and have been so since I can remember but I’m not bragging.

My obesity has been this way for a while now and I have tried to get “on track” but I suppose habits are formed when you are young and frankly, I remember growing up with Kraft Macaroni and maybe some fruit roll ups.

I have tried things like that BeachBody slim in 6 stuff and I made a huge mistake and got the Insanity program.

Let me just tell you. ..there is a reason the word insane is involved with that crazy ass workout.

Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed watching Shaun T bump and grind on the TV.  That man is hot.  He’s got a great body, great attitude and he works with hot people.

I like good looking people.

Maybe I’m a little too obsessive about it because I am so out of shape myself, but I would rather watch a workout video and get all hot and bothered from watching the sexy men work out than get off my large rear end and put down my doritos (or whatever the crunchy treat is for the week).

Speaking of crunchy treats….did you ever go through phases of crunchy treat eating?

Sometimes I love me a bag of Doritos and other times, I can’t stand them.

There was a time when I was obsessed with hard sour dough pretzels.

Then I was obsessed with little pretzel sticks and then Auntie Anne’s.

I mean I literally tried every pretzel there was out there.

Hmm. maybe I should be a pretzel reviewer.

At any rate, I eventually stopped eating pretzels.

Then I got on a Hot Tamale kick.

Mike and Ike’s are ok but sometimes you just need cinnamon.

And then other times, while I’m busy watching “Naked and Afraid” I just can’t think of a single treat that works with that show because I spend my time thinking….”What the heck? They’re naked!” and then I think about how crazy of a show it would be if it had people like me on it.

Large Obese women naked and afraid in the jungle.

I could probably survive off of one of my legs if I had to….oh wait…I would need that to walk.

Well…I bet you I could survive if I just had water because there is a lot of energy stored on my haunches and I would likely have a plastic surgeon ready to go on the side when I was done with my 21 days in the wilderness because there would be so much skin flapping in the wind.

Who knows.

I don’t think that obesity means out of shape.

It’s just a BMI number.

STupid BMI numbers.

I don’t know who to be mad at about my weight.

My mother who didn’t show me how to eat properly and create healthy eating habits or my doctor who follows some scale.

I feel good watching tv and playing on my pc.

So why does it matter?

I don’t have  a boyfriend (in real life) and I don’t have any kids.

I have a really stupid cat that pukes everywhere but that hardly counts as a companion.

Sorry cat people.

My cat is awesome …except for hairballs.

Well…this is basically just a blog post for me to start rambling.

I really have no plan on this one today because I just wanted to see if I could get a blog up and running.

At the very least it will be entertaining to you people out there who will likely never find me.

That’s ok.

I like the risk I take of putting myself out there and never being found.

The WWW is a huge place.

It’s crazy how many bloggers live out in this www paradise and just stay hidden even though we put everything out there for the world to see.

I mean…I’m practically naked with my words on this blog and I’ll give it to you..everything me and I’ll probably be the only one who ever cares.

Oh well.

Later, Gator.


Television is the Promised Land

Published by:

You can watch television about almost anything and almost anywhere.

Watching tv on your pc is just the start of being able to kick some major tv watching in the years to come.

People are watching tv on their phones, their tablets, in the trian, on the plane and just about anywhere.

Heck, I take my laptop with me and make my friends drive while I watch YouTube videos online….which are sort of like watching TV on a pc…but not 100%

I would really like to see if there was a way I could run around a track and watch tv at the same time while taking in nature.

I’m hugely obese but maybe I wouldn’t be if I could run around a track.

Being an obese tv watcher probably isnt’ anything new for an american like me but whatever.

I was watching some stupid things today on the computer and I have to tell you I had no idea there was a woman with three boobs out there….oh wait..maybe it was some sort of digital thing.

Here’s why I love watching the television while playing on my computer at the same time:

  1. When I am watching Oprah and she tells me about a new movie or book, I can go online right then and there and see what’s up with that.
  2. When Dr. OZ tells me about some new supplement that helps me lose weight, I’m totally all for going online and finding the best deal on Amazon or Ebay.   Are those the only places to find bargains these days or what.
  3. When I see an infomercial for the Shark Vacuum cleaner stuff, I go online and not only find the best deal and places to but it, but I also get to read the reviews and decide if it’s worth all that money. I still haven’t figure it out yet though because I get off track looking at Dysons and Kenmore stuff and then I’m totally confused and don’t know what to buy so I deal with my stupid windtunnel Hoover thing and it does ok.   It’s not the best at vacuuming up cat puke but it works good enough.
  4. When my nieces are over, I can watch Paw Patrol and hear funny references to Charlie Sheen “winning!” and then look up the whole Charlie Sheen Winning history because it just makes me laugh. I wonder if Charlie Sheen would ever date an obese woman with a stupid puking cat.
  5. If one of my computer friends mentions a TV show, I can go right then and there and click on it and watch it.
  6. If I’m watching the ridiculously long Vampire Saga…what’s that called…Twilight for the the 15th time because they play it all the time and I just don’ t feel like watching it to the end but I can’t remember the ending….I can just look it up on my nifty computer and read the rest of the story and then go to bed.
  7. When I need to listen to some salsa, I can play that on my computer while watching infomercials on TV while cleaning.  Well..wait…who am I kidding?  I don’t really ever clean because I hardly ever leave the couch…so forget this on.
  8. When I think I might want to exercise, I can look up diet information while watching Beach Body Infomercials and dream of being one of those Biggest Loser people who climbs mountains and plants a huge weight loss flat at the top.
  9. I can see a car commercial and see how awesome it is and then use my computer to see what the interior space looks like to see if I can even fit in a car like that.  I’ve learned a lot about cars this way.   So far, I have found that I can fit in a mini cooper and one of those stupid smart cars but they won’t be exactly obese friendly.  Lower cars are worse because I have to squat down and when I squat my fat condenses and makes it harder for me to get in and out of things.  So..I prefer my minivan.  They need more minivans.
  10. When the girls from that show called “the Talk” or “The view” (I can’t remember) comes on, and they talk about the next best thing in weight loss which happened to be this crazy weight loss coffee called Javita (I think that’s how you spell it) then I can look up that coffee and then I see how it is realated to something called a mlm (Multi level marketing) company which I guess my mother says is some sort of  scam….but I found Avon and Tupperware on the list of mlms too so I’m not so sure.  I’m not sure coffee counts as a product like Tupperware though.

So there you have it.

I figure 10 reasons as to why watching tv while being on my pc is a pretty good way to start this blog.

I plan on just blabbering about a lot of things.  Maybe next time I’ll talk about how my but tends to get more acne when I sit long periods of time on my stool rather than chilling laid back on my couch….but that is kind of gross and it’s probably something personal I should keep to myself.

But then again, who is ever going to be reading my obese woman’s guide to watching TV on her PC?

Who knows, we live in a pretty strange world.

I mean just the other day I was in Walmart and I swear a man was checking me out.  I know he wasn’t trying to see if I had a lot or money or anything.

I wasn’t crazy looking either.

I had actually showered and put on some jeans and a nice shirt and I was just roaming the toilet paper aisle looking for the best deal (not really roaming but that sounds better than whatever else I could put).

Anyways, I was reading about Angel Soft Vs. Charmin and he kept checking me out.  WE did that little look at me, look away, look back at me look away thing a million times and finally I just left because it was weird.

I could feel the heat of his eyes on my bum as I left.

Oh well. I went home to my stupid puking cat and watched TV.    Big surprise.
