I'm bored. Bored, bored, bored.
I shouldn't be bored, today is a day off. I should be rejoicing. It's not like I want to be at work.
It's just that I've done all the cleaning stuff... if I had any backbone, I'd clean out my closet, but I don't want to. But I can't really think of what I'd rather be doing. I'd love to go to the beach, but I just got back from a road trip and the thought of traveling wears me out. I wish I lived at the beach. I wish I had a deck that overlooked the ocean... and, while I'm at it, that there were no sharks.
If you could be doing ANYTHING AT ALL right now, what would you be doing? (Men should temper their answers.)
Don't feel bad! You have every right to not clean your closet! It is a day off!!!! Embrace the day! It is beautiful out here - take a long walk where you can window shop and have an indulgent coffee, if that is your bag. Or, watch episodes of Mad Men, Downton Abbey, or the new season premieres of tv!!!! Or... dare I say, go shopping at a place you know has fabulous sales! Those are the things I would do if I could step guilt-free out of my moment!!!!!!!!! Good luck! I know you will make it count. Remember, happiness is an investment in yourself and will make you more productive tomorrow. Make yourself happy!!!!!
You know what? I have started The Black List and it is quite enjoyable.
According to my ads, Camelot is coming to my town and Lancelot appears to have Wolverine style muttonchops. I'm not sure how I feel about that.
It's now trumpet time. You should be listening.
Do something that you HAVEN'T done before.
(1) Go to a Japanese/Indian restaurant and try something exotic such as spicy tandoori chicken, saba or uni sushi or handroll.
(2) Go to an upscale shopping center to get window shop.
(3) Go see an artsy, independent film.
(4) Go to a bookstore and just browse.
(5) Go on a bus ride downtown or better yet, get on a tour bus and see your town like a tourist.
(6)Go to a lecture and seminar in any subject or area that interests you.
(7) Go to a section of your town that you HAVEN'T been before(granted that the area is safe).
(8) Go to a museum.
That all sounds like stuff I do/I've done.
However, I've never given a lecture during an artsy film, while eating tandoori chicken. I might give that a try.
Since none of these things are available where I live, I would like to offer you some viable alternatives. Maybe they are things you have not done before.
1)Go over to your friend´s house and have an anaconda stew. If the anaconda is all gone, her brother might have brought in another crocodile.
2)Go to the grocery store on the mainland and buy coffee filters.
3) Go sit by the side of the river and watch the boats go by.
4) Take a mototaxi (motorcycle taxi) to a neighborhood that you have not visited before.
I don't believe in gender equality. If a man and I are found equal, I may have to start killing spiders. tee hee.
I have to go cook dinner now. Where'd I put my high heels?
How tall is your stove?
Use a toaster oven and you can wear flip-flops.
I vacuum in my heels too cause the pile is high on the carpet.
If you have piles on your carpet, you need to get some training for the dog.
It's not my dog, it's the neighbors. They have a lot of issues.
Stop feeding them indoors. Patio parties only, and keep the garden hose handy.
This is why I don't do anything without checking with you first.
You're on your own for now-- I gotta go to bed. My dog gets up early and I have to take her for a walk so she doesn't make piles on the carpet.
I suggest you walk her on your neighbors lawn. That's what I do and there have been no repercussions whatsoever.
I need to clean my closet as well. Yep...and I don't want to. I wish I had more to say but now I have a headace thinking about cleaning my closet. Love your forum!
I am doing what I want to be doing right now. Its my day off and I love it. The house is a mess haha, and it will just have to stay that way because I am chillin out in total silence , sippin my hot coffee and reading what I feel like reading. Clearing my mind is what I like to do, every time I get the chance. I can hear the birds chirpin , may go give em some bread here in a few minutes, watch em for awhile , come back through my nice, quiet , messy house and do a bit more coffee sippin n reading:)
We are living in parallel universes, I just need to appreciate mine. I think I just wanted someone to talk to without having to do my hair.
It is comforting to know there are other writers out there sitting in front of their computers, too, pondering their day. I don't feel so lonely. Thank you.
It is weird, isn't it? The forum is always just a bunch of pixels. Just a bunch of sentences and headings... but behind each one, there's an actual person. Different accents and clothes, different goals... but just like us. It would be nice to reach out and touch... maybe... in some cases maybe not. lol. But instead we just keep throwing out these pixels for someone else to catch.
... and that is why you are a writer, my friend. So lovely put.
Aw, thanks Amie. I'm still wondering why Writer Fox brought up the shofar. Very interesting indeed. Hopefully he/she will expound.
I'm going to speculate that it's because Writer Fox may be dunking apples in honey today.
Why only men? I suddenly have an urge to write something outrageous! I've had one of those days today as well. I started well - putting away all my daughters summer clothes and having a clear out. I now have a pile of clothes on the bedroom floor and for the last few hours I have alternated between the internet and reading a book! Ooops! Personally I feel quite happy about it. To be honest I'm happier reading than just about anything else.
If I could be doing anything at all, I would be laying out on my hammock soaking up this lovely fall weather. Alas, I'm just on break at work in an office that has windows that don't open!
My thrill for the day has been changing batteries on my smoke detectors, not being able to put one back together, trying to catch up on sleep since I have been up since 2 a.m.
You're so smart. I was going to oust you as queen, but between you and Marisa, I figured someone would squash me like a bug.
You were right... I should have scrolled down a bit more.

Oh my gosh, how cool is this for fall. Apple cups, how adorable!
When you grow up in a Jewish family, it's not uncommon to be familiar with their most significant religious holidays.
lol. I guess that makes sense. Well I still think you're smart, or maybe it just seems that way comparatively. It's not your fault you make us all look stupid, your job is just to hold up the mirror. Let the chips fall where they may.
That's it! My new campaign slogan! Except with "your" spelled properly.
That's it! My new campaign slogan! But with "your" spelled properly.
I will be writing your speeches. No one has to see how they're spelled. Just read them phonetically, you'll be fine.
edit: I see what you did there. You're a dark woman relache... a dark, dark woman.
Be transported down to Duvall Street in Key West where I could walk into an open air bar and drink a cold beer while listening to a guy with only an acoustic guitar and microphone play rock classics up on stage.
I would like to be taking a train ride up the Pacific coast, then writing a viral hub about it.
It is raining this afternoon, so here I am too.
I have been thinking of starting a thread about Patrick the Wombat so that I do not have to apologize for being off topic.
You are not going to write a scathing comment if I write something about flashlights or cookies?
When have I ever scathed anyone? Never mind.
I am glad to see your score did not fall. I s'pose the day is not over yet though.
Even if it does fall, I hear Amazon is now selling hubber scores. (Along with flashlights, cookies, and wombats.)
I just got back from seeing my G'ma who I have not seen for so many years it's not even funny. She will be turning 100 in Dec. and she is the prettiest thing you've ever seen. She's about as big as my thumb, but she still lives on her own with help that comes in. She is so funny I had tears rolling out of my eyes. When she says something she feels maybe she shouldn't have said, she puts her hands on both her cheeks as if to hide a blush. I just adore this woman. Does anyone else have wonderful g'parents?
She sounds wonderful - sadly, I never knew any of my grandparents. Perhaps that is why I adopt other people's elderly folk:)
Oh Sally, that's so sad. I'm sorry. I think it's lovely that you adopt grandparents. I wonder if you'd like going to nursing homes and such and loving on ppl like my g'ma. She was just telling me how lonely she gets. It broke my heart. (She's a few states away.)
When I'm bored the best thing for me is to call a friend and invite them to go out and explore something new and unexpected. I'd even ask them to think of a place they love and surprise me. If I keep trying to be busy on my own, it seems that my head is still in the same place. I need a distraction, a change in the atmosphere. Right now I'm not bored, just tired and thinking of all the things I need and want to do.
What would you, if you could do?
I would magically solve all the world's problems, then I would do the dishes and clean the kitchen and make up a big batch of green tomato chutney and write stellar Hubs about it...

Just wondering?I got pointed to hubs, to try and correct someone who hates superbikes, being a superbiker myself. Actually ended up posting a couple of hubs in the process.Right now I'm finishing a three year assignment in a remote spot in the Pacific, so for once I have too much time on my hands....

What do you think of getting one-word comments?How do you feel when you get one-word comments on your hubs? I can't decide. I'm really pleased people bother to comment at all, but at the same time much prefer getting longer comments. I don't think I've ever left only a one-word comment on a hub or...
