A Do Nothing Day

Yesterday was a “Do Nothing Day”.

I was completely unproductive. 

I played a little Star Wars: The Old Republic or SWTOR, pronounced kinda like the word ‘Sweater’.  I also played some Alpha Centauri and Sims 2.

I played Words w/ Friends and Bubble Witch.

I watched a lot of Netflix:

Episode 3, Season 2, Sherlock

The final episode of Sliders.

A family films called ‘The Good Witch’.  It was very cute and very sweet and several parts were very underdone. 

5 or 6 episodes of SeaQuest, I admit, I lost count.

An episode of the original Star Trek.

While watching all this t.v., I worked on a big stitching project. 

I ate some food in there.  But cooking was minimal.  Heating pre-cooked bacon in the microwave and heating Easy Mac in the same.  Oh, I reheated left over pasta too. 

I said it was a do nothing day.  Today, I’m researching Crow Indians.  It will be a bit more productive.

A Total Lack of Ambition

I got my basic to-do list done.

On the way home, the roommate stopped off to test drive a Ford Ranger.  The sales person called him to find out a good time.  We were there for about 5 minutes.  I know it doesn’t sound like long, but it was 5 minutes in which we were totally ignored by sales staff who were wandering around doing nothing much.  The last one walked right past us to go out the door and then stand there doing nothing.  We left after that.

Got home and I made my Sims Death house. It took half an hour to create all the people and the house.  It took them 5 minutes to kill themselves off.

Dinner was a can of ready to eat clam chowder, and an extra tin of clams, some diet butter, and some extra seasoning.  I ate while watching Vandred.  I love the show.

Then I stitched for two more episodes.  I had to get up and walk around because the only comfortable stitching spot in the living room is to sit on the floor at the coffee table.  But it totally kills my feet.

Now I’ve gotten ready for bed and plan to stitch another hour.

I did NOTHING from my to-do list.  Not one little thing.  Other than make the list.

Does making the list count???
