9.7%

Come on in. Make yourselves at home. Just not the seat with the footrest. That's my seat.

Welcome to The Couchwarmers. My name is Sam. My co-pilot is Daniel. We're two somewhat-recent college graduates who have nothing better to do with ourselves. I worked for a year after graduating doing psychiatric research, and then when that was over, I basically went into sleep mode. After Daniel graduated, he worked for a blind, coked-up governor for a while and then worked as an ESPN production assistant, before ultimately finding himself in the same situation as me. Truthfully, he's more proactive than I am about this whole job thing -- but as of right now, we're in the same boat.

In essence, this is a lazy man's blog. So there might be will be times when we don't post for a while. But we'll try to keep it up, because what the two of us do have is too much free time. At least for me, the majority of this time is spent watching TV -- sports and scripted shows, mostly. At least in the beginning, that'll be the direction here. But who knows if, or how, this thing will evolve. Think of it this way: for those of you lucky/motivated enough to have jobs, this is basically a look into how the other 9.7% lives.

Anyway, we're planning a big kick-off day today. Remember, there's always a space on the couch for you. Just don't touch the remote.

  3. As someone who has arguably spent the most time being lazy on your couch (or you on my couch), I feel like this will be right up my alley.

  6. I like the "recently" thing. it is a nice understatement and the "producers assistant" is a nice overstatement.
