Looming Deadlines

On the one hand I find myself depressed and moping and wearing the same baggy, schlumpy sweat suit type outfit every day. On the other hand I find myself reveling in the freedom of going to the gym in the middle of the day, having time to watch entire seasons of HIMYM, and generally filling my days with unabashed pleasure seeking.

Sometimes I forget that I'm currently a drag on society and potentially my own financial well being. It's like I've forgotten what it would be like to have to get up every day and commute to somewhere other than this room next to my bedroom. I have vague memories of a world where the need to shower was a daily event. But give it another few weeks and I may have lost that ability to function in the real world all together.

I set myself a deadline for when I would have to relent and just settle. That deadline is fast approaching. So today is a day when I find myself depressed and moping and wearing those baggy clothes (which today have some suspicious food stains....Megan would be so proud).

Thank god I have this to get me through these low points:

My Brief Hiatus

I think maybe I was intending my brief hiatus to be a permanent hiatus but then two things happened. 1) I discovered I had things to share with you all. And frankly, phoning you all up individually is just so much effort. and, 2) I finished watching seasons 1 & 2 of HIMYM and now find myself with not much to do. I'm three months into my unemployment and I have finally run out of TV on DVD that I'm interested in watching. I'm not quite sure how people keep it up on a year-round basis.

But let's move on, shall we? To the things I want to share with you. I believe I will fulfill my usual pattern and give you five, yes five!, things I have found out in the last three months:

1. My landlady is a Jehovah's Witness. shudder. I know, right? I'm pretty tolerant of other people's belief systems but I have limits. And Jehovahs and Scientologists just don't quite fit within those limits. And how did I just find this out? I've been living here for five years. Wouldn't we all be happier if I just never found out? Yes, yes we would.

2. I hate cooking. Since I'm all homebound it just seems like I should be shouldering all the domestic responsibilities. But damn, I hate it. I don't mind the planning and the shopping and the clean-up afterwards. But the actual act of cooking dinner every day? Blech.

3. Sweatpants are very comfy. But I still think it's wrong to wear them outside the house. And yes, yoga pants are sweatpants. You're not fooling anyone sweetheart.

4. um, yeah...I had a point number four but after I finished writing this post blogger froze up and didn't autosave so I lost points 4 and 5. Fortunately I remembered point 5 (for obvious reasons) but for the life of me I just can't recall what went here. Let's just assume it was both funny and awesome and laugh aloud to ourselves okay? done? good.

5. fuck, fuck, fuck. I hate looking for a job. fucking fuckity fuck.
