Thoughtyness  
Idea:

Take 3-4 hours sometime in the next few days (hours when you're awake, smartasses) and turn off the tv. Turn off the computer. Spend those hours doing other stuff, stuff you don't have to do. No shopping errands, no working on the car, cleaning the house. Preferably not in a book that sucks the time away before you know it. It's quite nice. I listened to some quiet music, played with the cats, paged through a new magazine. You really should try it.

Revelations:

A: I've decided some day I hope to be an old woman who lives on the beach. I'll have a couple cats and maybe a Stupid Little Dog who I'll make wear little outfits. I'll spend my time making twee little paintings that I'll show at tiny little art fairs and sell them to yuppies with too much money who don't realize they're really crap.
Mmmmmm....

B: Pork rinds are too light and crispy to eat without paying attention. They aerosolize easy and then you inhale them and cough a lot.

See? If you try it, you get all sorts of fascinating revelations!

Does visiting my mommy count? The zoo? :)

Mommy, no. Zoo, only if you go alone. You need time to hear your brain...

That actually sounds like a good idea.
I'll have to schedule a couple of hours to sit and think.

Well, I didn't so much think as play with cats, page through a magazine, listen to the Firefly soundtrack, but it was WAY more serene than any moment I've ever had with a computer, game or tv.

Ok, that sounds much better. I don't like to hear myself think. I am not always nice to me. Something that I am working on.

"I've decided some day I hope to be an old woman who lives on the beach."

Two words: Tsu-nami.

Of course, you could always paint pictures of the tsunami, but you'll have to paint real fast.

I was actually thinking of being a ways back from a bluff where I could still see it with one of those staircases down to the beach =P

And once again, Thudpucker makes it onto my quotes page.

Sadly, that'll be the day when I have 3-4 extra hours...

(Actually I had 3 extra hours today. I fell asleep. Guess I must've needed it.)

(My mom always used to say "You tell me you have no time for things; you have to MAKE time!" and I would reply that "You can't MAKE time, you can only TAKE time from somewhere else.")

That's my dream. I'll live in one of those houses that looks like their on stilts (for when it rains and the hurricanes blow through). It'd be nice to just sit on the porch in a rocking chair and listen to the waves. *le sigh*
