When I'm not at work, I should be working on song lyrics, cleaning up my home office, painting, etc. Instead, I've managed to find a lot of other distractions.
I'm playing games:
- Wordy (it's like a stripped-down version of Bookworm)
- Jewel Quest - I treated myself to a Mac version of it on a trip to the computer store last night. I finally stopped playing around midnight when my eyes got tired. The real version is way more fun than the free online version.
I'm watching TV:
- Heroes - I was right about who Claire's father is! The watch and shirtsleeve gave it away.
- Lost - Back today, I understand. I'm getting wary, but I'll keep watching.
- Rome - It's always been gory, but last week's episode was almost more than I could stand. Plus, the Octavian actor switcheroo is going to take a little getting used to.
- Rules of Engagement - I watched the premiere. In general, I like Patrick Warburton and David Spade, but the show's going to have to get better for me to bother to watch it in the other room while Heroes is being TiVoed (we have the old-school TiVo that only records one show at a time).
- My Name Is Earl/The Office/Scrubs - Otherwise known as my favorite hour-and-a-half of continuous TV watching in any given week.
- The Ghost Whisperer - Cheesy and emotionally manipulative, but it gives me something to watch on Saturday or Sunday morning before my husband wakes up. Thank goodness they made Jennifer Love-Hewitt re-record the voiceover for the intro this year. Talk about a stiff line reading.
- Psych - Love it! It's just as formulaic as any detective show, but the actors are engaging and the stories are creative.
I'm playing with the cats (but I haven't gotten another one).
I'm surfing the 'net:
- I submitted a drawing of a mouse to The Mouse Achivement Page. You should, too! Why not?
- I won a copy of Arianna Huffington's book "On Becoming Fearless" from A Girl Must Shop. Thanks, Megan!
- My Kaboodle lists are still growing rapidly. Thank goodness I'm just bookmarking all that stuff and not buying it (yet). Well, except for my "Recipes I'd Like to Try" list. I should really tackle more of those.
I guess it's no wonder it takes me weeks and weeks to make progress on some of my personal projects. That doesn't even count the volunteer work I do or the time I spend with friends, relatives and my husband. Then you have to subtract the eight hours of sleep I get each night.
I think I need longer days. Or more days per week. Or the ability to pull myself away from distractions. Yeah, that third thing would probably be best.
