I've always considered "watching tv" as "doing nothing"....

someone, who should have more important things to do than I do, considers "watching tv" as spending "executive time".

If that person is watching

in order to know what is being said about them, I'd say that's proper. Didn't someone say something like 'Keep your friends close but your enemies closer?'? Some people's worst enemies control what's on TV.

But don't let them know they are your enemy?

...nobody is broadcasting your life happenings daily all over the TV. If so, you'd probably watch it a lot more too.

TV?...I don't need no stinkin' TV.

I could just go on Twitter and read what was going on in MY life...(after I've posted it there)

I'd be interested to find out how you spend your extra fifteen minutes of the day since the rest of it is spent here ranting about Trump.

I never touched any of those women. I am stepping down from all my positions in order to protect those organizations from controversy. I am beginning therapy. My first goal is to save my marriage, if I can locate my wife.
Never touched ONE, you hear?

It wasn't that long ago you were using the word "stalking" in reference to me.....and now YOU want to know what I do in MY away time?

Who's stalking whom?

Is that proper grammar?

Grammar. Yes. Subject stalking object.
