Do You Have "Entertainment Debt"?

Do You Have "Entertainment Debt"?

No, we're not talking about the kind of entertainment debt you can get into when you have a never-shrinking balance on your Best Buy credit card. This is a little less trouble and sometimes much more fun (especially with an empty Sunday afternoon)...

We saw this great little phrase first while browsing GeekSugar, but we have to say that "Entertainment Debt" is now a household name in our place—and we're sure many of yours!

GeekSugar defines "Entertainment Debt" as:

The term for having too much media to consume in too little time—including unwatched shows on your DVR, unspun Netflix discs, and unread magazines and items in your RSS reader.

They add that Entertainment Debt is surprisingly stressful for involving things that are supposed to be so much fun! But we say that we'd rather be in the entertainment red, with two fresh Netflix envelopes and a host of back episodes of A&E's Obsessed, than the entertainment green when a lazy Sunday afternoon rolls around.

Unplggd, do you keep yourself in entertainment debt with back episodes and movies on the queue? Or do you like to "pay-off" as soon as possible? Tell us in the comments!
