I stayed at work until after 6:30 last night and I had the house to myself when I got home, so I decided it was time for a lazy evening. First on the agenda: surfing my blogroll. I read and commented on blog posts until I started having trouble focusing my eyes. Whatever did I do for entertainment before the Internets?
After that, I made myself a mini bag of Orville Redenbacher microwave kettle corn for dinner. I meant to have a beer with it, but once I planted myself on the couch, I was too unmotivated to get back up. Yes folks, I was too slothlike to drink beer. Homer Simpson would be ashamed of me.
While I ate my dinner, I fended off the cats and started making my way through the TiVo's offerings from the past several days. I watched the last 15 minutes of the latest Lewis Black HBO special (I saw the rest the night before but started to fall asleep before it was over) and tried to watch "Margaret Cho's Revolution," but got sidetracked by the laptop. I kept getting e-mail and obsessively checking Evite to see who might have RSVPed for this weekend's party.
By then it was getting close to my bedtime, but I didn't want to pass up the chance to watch "The Daily Show." When that was over, I didn't feel very tired anymore, so it was on to the season premiere of "Deadwood." Oh, how I'd missed it!
By the time "Deadwood" wrapped up, my stomach was growling so I had some saltines with some of those little pre-cut, cracker-sized squares of sharp cheddar, and went straight to bed as soon I ran out of cheese.
I won't have nearly so much leisure time tonight because it's my evening to work at my dad's office (after I put in 8+ hours at my real job). I keep hoping my dad might retire someday, but as he's 75 now and still keeping his business going, I'm not going to hold my breath.
So there's my immediate past and future. How're things going for you?
