The Slackers Club

    Are you a slacker? Then post here.

    I am the president, btw. If you have a problem with that, then don't post here.

    As head slacker, I am dedicating today to accomplishing absolutely nothing.

      Darn it!  I have to run an errand for a friend today, or I'd be totally in.  I have no desire to complete a task, perform a service, or to do anything that might even resemble a productive action.

      Can I still be in the club?

      Please?

        Professional slacker that I am, I make no attempt to enforce any type of criteria. Welcome aboard.

      I slacked most of yesterday - in fact, I was in PJs and a robe all day (okay, I was mostly sick more than slacking).  I promise not to do too much today, too.  Can I join?

        I have decided to incorporate an inner circle of slackers. You, me, and Motown2Chitown are now part of that circle.

          Oh, I am honored!  This is great - now I can loaf with intent, rather than aimlessly fritter my time. Wait - that will violate some of our core beliefs . . .  I'll get this straight.  I promise.

          How cool is that!??!  I never get to be in anyone's inner circle. 

          Now I'm a slacker AND a cool kid.

          Can we treat this like Slackers Anonymous?  I went to Walmart after my nap.  Am I out now?

      What a bunch of pathetic wannabe's, I The Greatest Slacker of All Time, have written an entire article about SlackerTude and yet you feeble, insignificant fleas merely talk about your inane wannabe-slacker ways.

      You wouldn't know how to slack if you fell out of your hammock, truly a sad testament to the Slacker Nation! Here is a link to help you recognize the supreme sacrifice Slackers provide this dull world.

      Your Welcome.

    What? Being the president goes against everything that we slackers strive for. You need to hit your hammock and forget about this president b.s.
    I posted a hub on "Ten Steps to Becoming a Slacker" with a list of what you need. somethglblue also has a great hub called "Slackers-R-Us".
    Chill, dude.

      Disqualifying folks borders too close to actual work. Thus, you are in. Post a pic of the catch!

      As one of the Inner Circle members, I agree with PD - it's too much work to run the traps on whether you're a high-quality slacker or not (is that an oxymoron?).  I trust your judgment - it's the easy way out.  And I want to see that fish, too!

    Has anyone volunteered for the post of vice President of the slacker's club? That title has a peculiar ring to it.

    1. paradigmsearch profile image91
      paradigmsearchposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      That is an executive decision. Which would require work. Your chances are good, but wouldn't hold breath.

      1. Marcy Goodfleisch profile image93
        Marcy Goodfleischposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        If you appointed yourself President, one of us could appoint ourselves VP? If we weren't so lazy. As part of the Inner Circle, if I get motivated enough, I'll appoint myself Executive VP. Has fewer letters to type than the full term.

        1. paradigmsearch profile image91
          paradigmsearchposted 3 years ago in reply to this

          You are VP.

          I had some concerns about the torpid cat, but he has moved, all is well.

      Well, we've both also posted on other threads.  Maybe that counts as procrastination. I left my Christmas tree up until spring one year - I think I'm grandfathered.

    Cats are gone. Real time. And you are still a bunch of slackers.

      You did mention the cats. I think. Remembering what I read takes energy.

    I am back from store. Slackerdom continues. Such rant as such, I'm even approaching prickdom.

  16. paradigmsearch profile image91
    paradigmsearchposted 3 years ago

    Prickdom rescinded. Leastwise as to this thread.

  17. Marcy Goodfleisch profile image93
    Marcy Goodfleischposted 3 years ago

    I'm glad you rescinded that. Not a nice term to think of. But then, pondering takes effort, so I probably wouldn't have noticed. Going to a small party in a bit - a returning missionary in my church (yes, really). I'm hoping that still counts as slacking. After all, there may be food around that someone else prepared. Of course, I do have to get dressed . . .

    What is it with the cats and my front porch???

    My child arrived just the other day.
    Came to the world in the usual way.
    But there were planes to catch and bills to pay;
    He learned to walk while I was away.
    He was talkin' 'fore I knew it,
    And as he grew he said,
    "I'm gonna be like you, Dad,
    You know I'm gonna be like you."

    And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
    Little boy blue and the man in the moon.
    "When you comin' home?"
    "Son, I don't know when. We'll get together then.
    You know we'll have a good time then."

    Well, my son turned ten just the other day;
    He said, "Thanks for the ball, Dad. Come on, let's play.
    Could you teach me to throw?"
    I said, "Not today. I got a lot to do."
    He said, "That's okay." And he walked away,
    and he smiled and he said,
    "You know, I'm gonna be like him, yeah.
    You know I'm gonna be like him."

    And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
    Little boy blue and the man in the moon.
    "When you comin' home?"
    "Son, I don't know when. We'll get together then.
    You know we'll have a good time then."

    Well, he came from college just the other day,
    So much like a man I just had to say,
    "I'm proud of you. Could you sit for a while?"
    He shook his head and he said with a smile,
    "What I'd really like, Dad, is to borrow the car keys.
    See you later. Can I have them please..."

    And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
    Little boy blue and the man in the moon.
    "When you comin' home?"
    "Son, I don't know when. We'll get together then.
    You know we'll have a good time then."

    I've long since retired, my son's moved away.
    I called him up just the other day.
    "I'd like to see you, if you don't mind."
    He said, "I'd love to, Dad, if I could find the time.
    You see my new job's a hassle and the kids have the flu,
    But it's sure nice talkin' to you, Dad.
    It's been sure nice talkin' to you."
    And as I hung up the phone it occurred to me,
    He'd grown up just like me.
    My boy was just like me.

    And the cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,
    Little boy blue and the man in the moon.
    "When you comin' home?"
    "Son, I don't know when. We'll get together then.
    You know we'll have a good time then."

    To fade.

    Just a reminder that I live in Austin - the absolute epicenter of Slackerdom. We reach a level (maybe the term is stoop to a level . . .) of Slackerness that's been codified in cinema.  Others can only aspire to it - if they were going to aspire to anything, that is.
