Did you get a to-do? [Jun. 13th, 2010|02:07 am]
Robert Hutchinson
I have the most trouble getting myself out of the house on a Sunday. So, an experiment!

1. Have late breakfast at Waffle House (yum)
2. Oil change (overdue) (They were closed!)
3. Haircut (ditto)
4. Groceries (need for survival)
5. Find an iPod dock with a speaker that doesn't cost $100+ (this is optional)

Let's see if moving some electrons around makes me any less lazy!

(UPDATE: I have now indicated what I did and didn't.)

I did everything but #2. I think #3 looks pretty damned good, and I am cautiously optimistic that I struck the right balance of "cheap" and "not crap" with #5.

Then I got home and started watching baseball, and it took me six hours (after it finished) to start doing any chores. Ah well.

I applaud your long list of accomplishments, and resist the urge to feel bad about my short list of accomplishments in comparison. :)

Thank you for resisting. I didn't say it to make you feel bad. I said it because I was proud that I didn't just sit on my ass all weekend and it felt good that, even though I felt relaxed, I still got stuff done. Your #5 is the kind of thing I would put off for months.

Okay, now I'm not sure if you used the "offended" pic on behalf of me or you. If you, then I sincerely apologize--I just meant to make a flippant comment, and was not bothered at all by the relative lengths of either of our lists of accomplishments.

(Man, I can make a mess.)

The picture is tongue in cheek and was meant to poke fun at everything... you are not one of the many people who look for something to be offended at on the interwebz and neither am I... also I like lolcats and haven't seen enough of them this week. If I were upset I would have used an icon like the current one... which is USED FOR ILLUSTRATIVE PURPOSES ONLY AND NOT TO BE TAKEN PERSONALLY! (Feel free to steal it as I did if you need to.)

Also, it looks like the cat in your Walter Mitty/Waldo Kitty-type icon.
