I was commenting to my TV addict husband that I don't think of myself as someone who watches A LOT of TV, because I read more than I watch and I always seem to have time to dick around on Pinterest or talk on the phone for hours and therefore am obviously not a huge TV nerd. Lies, damn lies. So I work 40 hours a week at a college, take care of a 5 year old boy who is reading (Eeee!!) and cook from scratch and listen and offer support to my friends as they plan weddings and college majors and possible children and huge life decisions, all the while maintaing a head of thick(ish) curly hair, giving my husband something he can feel and reading a shit-ton of "Teen Wolf" AUs. And yet I watch:

1) How I Met Your Mother
2) Modern Family
3) Raising Hope
4) Nashville
5) The Big Bang Theory
6) Supernatural
7) American Horror Story
8) Agents of Shield (!!!)
9) New Girl
10) Teen Wolf
11) Breaking Bad
12) Mad Men
13) Game of Thrones
14) The Walking Dead
15) Downton Abbey

Granted, most of those shows are staggered by hiatus, so I don't I don't feel like I'm watching *that* much in any given season. There are also shows I watch when Caza's watching them (True Blood, Wilfred, Warehouse 13, etc) that I don't *count* as watching, because I don't ask him to pause the DVR if I have to pee, and I'm usually either looking at pics on Tumblr or reading a magazine while he's watching it.

The Game, however, is this: CAN YOU BEAT IT? While I feel I have a light-nerd-typical amount of TV watching, I think Caza may be the Big Kahuna, especially given his RL to TV time ratio. CAN YOU OUT NERD CAZA???

The Rules:

Your RL work load must correspond (subjectively) to Caza's.

Caza's workload:

  • 40 hours a week, 50% college professor, 50% associate dean of Humanities

  • Final semester of PhD coursework, taking dissertation writing class two nights a week

  • 50% care of 1 five year old son who needs assistance with bathing, dressing and lunch packing every day, plus 30 minutes of reading (to him and listening to him) every night, plus trying slot all the time you can with him because you work 40 hours a week and he goes to bed at 8:30 (a really needy pet would suffice)

  • A spouse who talks ALL THE TIME and expects sex on demand

  • 50% of the housework/laundry (hand wash dishes only), 100% of the pet care (2 dogs, 1 cat) and 100% of the lawn care

  • And *drum roll* Caza's impressive TV schedule:

    Shows he watches regularly

    1. American Horror Story
    2. Arrow
    3. Bates Motel
    4. Big Bang Theory
    5. Bones
    6. Downton Abbey
    7. Dr. Who
    8. Falling Skies
    9. Game of Thrones
    10. Glee
    11. Haven
    12. How I Met Your Mother
    13. Mad Men
    14. Modern Family
    15. New Girl
    16. Once Upon a Time
    17. Parenthood
    18. Psych
    19. Raising Hope
    20. Revolution
    21. Supernatural
    22. Teen Wolf (thanks for adding to my full dance card)
    23. The Walking Dead
    24. True Blood
    25. Under the Dome
    26. Warehouse 13
    27. Wilfred

    New Shows that he will try
    28. Agents of SHIELD
    29. Back in the Game (maybe - It has Juliette from Psych in it)
    30. Brooklyn Nine-nine
    31. Once Upon a Time in Wonderland
    32. The Crazy Ones
    33. The Tomorrow People

    Shows stuck in his DVR that he will watch soon
    34. Broadchurch – In DVR
    35. The White Queen – In DVR waiting

    So...can you beat him?
