Idle Hands

I am… slow at work. There. I jinxed myself. I shall (“I shall!” Who’s been reading Charlotte Bronte, recently?) have heaping piles of work come flowing in anon (oh, wait, that’s ME all up in my 19th century British Lit-speak, hallo) but for the moment all’s quiet. And I like it. I took a nap yesterday. I went for a run. Today I finished the last sixty pages of Jane Eyre, and am debating just re-starting it because it’s so damn good.

I scoured Flickr for more friends. I posted some pictures, and read a little in my Photoshop book. I clipped the cats toenails and changed a flat tire. (Or, more accurately, drove lopsided car to Discount Tires who FIXED IT FOR FREE!) I could clean the house, but eh. I’m not quite that bored, yet.

What do you do when you’re bored? I’m looking for non-chore-related inspiration, here.

I have tried to read Jane Eyre again- I just can't do it.

I love Jane Austen- but both the Brontes drive me mental.

I dance around the house to music I knew and loved as a teenager. I turn it up loud and try to get through the twist, the mashed potato, the be-bop, the locomotive and the stroll before I'm out of breath...

I picked up Jane Eyre at the classics table at Barnes and Noble many moons ago - perhaps I will attempt to locate it and peruse its many pages . . .

p.s. long story, but I can't wear a dress today . . . sigh . . .

Oh, you already thought of that...

In looking around for diary-type Blogs I discovered yours. I'm new to the game so I'm still getting ideas. My Blog is called Rinkly Rimes, because I'm 'rinkly'. It's also a journal-type thingy but it's all in verse. You might like to take a peek.

PS When I'm bored I look for people like you.

I nap. I re-think the shape of my fingernails. I look through cookbooks- but stop short of doing any actual 'cooking' because that usually involves a drive to the grocery store and I'm never so bored I want to actually... move. Or be productive.

Princess in Galoshes said...

Holly- Have things slowed down at all?

Princess U- I can't stand Wuthering Hights. But I really insist you try Jane Eyre again, it's so wonderful!

Pauline- When I come to visit, you are going to have to teach me all of those....

Diane- What happened? No dress on Dress Thursday? Sacrelig.

Guilty Secret- I know. I was lost.

Rinkly- Thanks for stopping by!

Brandy- We are SO alike! I was in just that mood, bored, but too lazy to actually get up and DO anything.
