consider the ant, you sluggard

i would like, with the pride of the extraordinary lazy, to brag a bit about how productive and useful i was yesterday. now, i know that there are people out there who get productive and useful things done every day, but i am not one of them. i am disorganized and sleepy. please understand, then, the hurculean effort it took me to clean my room. i cleaned and swiffered my room. inertia in action, i proceeded to swiffer the kitchen and family room, working around koala, who was taking her ease...



i thought she might relocate when i moved the ottoman, but she didn't even flinch. for posterity's sake, here she is earlier today...


and a few hours ago...


that dog is sedentary! anyway, not only did i hang up the clothes in the 'clean' pile, but i did another load of laundry, since i have a nasty habit of eating in bed and dropping loaded bagels, jam side down. and i went for a run, and i had a shower, which i know shouldn't be impressive, but sometimes i take my not-in-thailand freedom-from-showering-thrice-daily a bit too far, so it is. and i emptied and loaded the dishwasher, not because i am awesome, but because the cache of dishes i'd unearthed in my room looked way less incriminating on the rack than on the counter.

and then i went out to mission for beers with friends, which is not useful or productive, but since they comprise almost the entire audience of my blog, i had to throw that in. jer, mike, alan, sometimes ryan...what's up? robbie, we missed you.

i aim for balance in life, so today i slept in late, made brownies with marshmallow icing, and watched three movies and the same episode of 'so you think you can dance' twice. perhaps one of these days i'll usurp koala's spot on the floor between the couch and the ottoman.

I am proud of you for being so productive.
Also, I went to the gym for the first time in 2 months. I ran for 45 minutes. I found out the next day that this was a huge mistake. I cannot walk.
Also, I made a carrot cake, come over and have some!

i looked at those brownies today and wanted to yak. Not because they aren't good brownies, but because I generally wanted to yak today.
I think at some point in Koala's life she's gotten the command "come here" mixed up with "move a little bit so I know you're still alive".

Jer is, however, funnier after a Mike's Hard Lemonade. Sadly, he was unable to take the risk of the Mike's Hard Apple Crisp.
