Taking it Easy


When my alarm clock went off this morning, I was physically unable to respond. All I could think of was the long workday that loomed in front of me -- the assignments I would be forced to do, the bosses I would be forced to smile at and the headache that wold greet me by the end of the day. Just the thought of it gave me a headache, which made me realize that I needed to call in sick.

It's early afternoon now and I'm sitting around in a pajama top and jeans, trying to figure out who the hell all these new people are on All My Children and Young & the Restless. Then I watched a bit of Regis & Kelly earlier, only for them to say Robin Thicke will be on there tomorrow. Grrrr.

There are some responsible things that I want to do -- my homework, my taxes, and going to the gym. But there are also some irresponsible things I want to do as well -- go shopping, sleep, and watch mindless TV all day. I probably won't go to the gym or go shopping though. Whenever I call in sick (yes, I've done it before -- everyone needs a mental health day), I try not to go out in public. I have this fear that the mall or my gym would be subject to some kind of armed robbery and I'd be on the news as one of the victims, making it so obvious that I wasn't sick. Maybe I'm overreacting, but I can't have that happen.

Anyway, I did have a decent weekend. I went to a 3-hour intro to bellydancing class, which really wore my behind out. Trust, it ain't as easy as it looks. I went to see Pan's Labyrinth (two thumbs up, but pretty violent), bought my tix to see the Color Purple on Broadway for my b-day and caught up with my season 2 dvds of Battlestar Galactica. The last couple of episodes of have sucked, so my obsession with that show may be over sometime soon. It's doubtable, but possible.

Oh well, it's back to trying to find something to do. Have a good one!

this is funny:

OMG, you and my man must be the only two people on the planet Earth that watch Battlestar Gallactica! Maybe if your obsession ends, it'll go off the air and then maybe I can get some attention on Sunday evenings! Peace s/c/w, hope you're feelin' better.

mental health days are great, except for not being able to go out. I live in such a small town I'd be caught in my jogging pants in the corner store buying a bottle of wine or something by one of the students whose lesson i cancelled that morning.

the repercussions would be horrible...

Hi,

I am contacting you regarding a blog survey I am conducting. I am a PhD candidate in Mass Communication at Penn State, and my dissertation project consists of a survey that addresses bloggers’ perceived motivations for and effects of their blogging.

I am sending the survey to a number of bloggers, and I would like to invite you to participate in it as well. Participation should take no more than 10-15 minutes of your time and would appreciate it tremendously if you could follow the link below to fill out the survey:
