The internet is always there for me in times of need.
I suck at lazy Sundays. But I excel at the internet. Enjoy these lazy Sunday musings.
Today was a struggle because even at this age, I am still trying to learn how to relax. It infuriates me that when presented with a much-needed day of sitting still, it takes me about nine hours to finally find some calm. Until then, or rather until now, I’ve passed the time dozing off on the couch, watching TV, playing games (mostly Doge 2048), surfing the web, working, and resisting a very exciting bag of Lays potato chips. Enjoying very little of it and wracked with guilt over nine million other things I should have been doing and chastising myself for not finding serenity.
I know you’re all super jealous of my glamorous life.
My weekend’s really been lovely overall, though. I had a wonderful brunch yesterday (not to worry – more on that coming soon) and I saw Doctor Strange, which I highly recommend. Tips: See it in 3-D, sit through the entire credits.
Also, if you love stand-up specials like I do, I also highly recommend “Pete Davidson: SMD” from Comedy Central, which I caught on demand yesterday afternoon. (Anyone wanna guess what “SMD” stands for?)
This blew my mind this morning during some web-surfing. Just watch. I spent quality time trying to figure out how this is even accomplished but then my brain started to hurt.
All the while, by the way, in the back of my mind I keep hearing this nagging voice chanting “THE ELECTION IS TUESDAY.” I’ve grayed out as much of the day as I can so that I can pop Xanax and sit in front of the television, digging my nails into the armrests. That’s healthy, right? We all know how I feel about this election and I’ll spare you any proselytizing. If you read this blog and know me, you likely don’t need it anyway. But I’ll confess to everyone now that I have a really bad feeling about how this is gonna go and I know I’m not alone. So let’s all just pray, meditate, send out that positive energy — whatever get you through.
Anyway…. I have a few hours left of this day and now, finally feeling a little more chilled out, I’m going to make the most of it.
