I spent today in my pajamas and terry housecoat — much like most wingnut bloggers do — and I don’t like it at all.
Sure, I played games and noodled around on the internets, but gees it is BORING. I danced around for a while, swirling my warm terrycloth housecoat about me, and I played peek-a-boo with the pups. I cleaned the house so far as I was allowed and then UTTER BOREDOM. Honestly I don’t know how my mom did or people my age now do it everyday. If I had this much time everyday, I’m pretty sure I would have invented a Star Trek level transporter by now.
This wasn’t a vacation day, but rather a stay at home day because the dentist said, but it made me think, if you don’t have a job and you don’t have to clean your house or take care of your yard, what is left but to noodle around on the internets. And dear god that is very unsatisfying, given how touchy people are. I guess it’s different if you are just trolling the nets for people to mock or criticize. I seem to remember that both Ron Green and M.J. Khan had that complaint about Pam Holm in their debate: all she and her conservative colleagues can do is criticize. It took her far, right? Perhaps Cory and Kevin could take a clue from that last electoral decision.
Or not. 😉
