I've noticed a pattern to my days off from work. I tend to wake up with huge ideas of magnificent things I shall accomplish and then end up doing magnificently little.

What I end up doing in fact is curling up on the couch with books and a bottle of water and contemplating such weighty existential questions as:

How long can a person live on apples?
Will going grocery shopping be more trouble than it's worth?
Will cleaning the house make me feel better after I do it?
Will people magically sense my need and write me lots of entertaining emails?
Should I go to self-defence class?
Where did I leave those important documents I'll be needing two weeks from now?


Having finally decided to get my ass dressed in something more substantial than underwear and go to the bank, I then discovered that my chequebook was amongst the important documents gone AWOL, so I spent some time vigorously turning the state of the house from *mere tip* to *cluster bomb was here*, and finding lots of intersting items such as condoms, a Tarot deck, comic strip I'd drawn as a teen but not alas my chequebook (which was it turned out hiding in my bag). Then had invigorating conversations with my bank about why it is I haven't received my card yet and now I'm engaging in panic about going to Australia in two weeks time and having given this matter only glancing thought up until now and not having rung up Australian people I know who might be quite pissed off that I travelled to the other side of the world without notifying them.

I'm going to Australia!
*hyperventilate* *faint*

Still loving my job (also loving that I'll be paid in a week's time which will come in useful when travelling to Aus), still hating filling in the Occupational Health form and explaining the questions I had to tick *yes* to.

My dad’s going to Australia at the weekend: One week for his work, then another fortnight because hey, his employer’s paid for him to fly out there, so why not take a couple of weeks holiday?

Bargain. Wish my work would stretch that far.

I had a vague notion you were going. Good luck.

and you may be worried about doing "nothing" on your days off...but it seems you are doing plenty good stuff at work...so why stress too much? (Excepting the fact that you couldn't find your checkbook)

I do that a lot. Turn stuff upside down and then find the object where it was supposed to be anyway. I believe I give a cursory search, panic, then freak. I am working on that.

This is a shot in the dark, but do you get nervous if things are going to well? Methinks I do, so I ask.

Not really stressed elf... so much as lethargic.

Yes. It's unnatural. ;)
But I'm working on that. ;)

nothing is the perfect thing to do on a day off.

I could live with sex and sunlight and the beach. ;)
And things of that ilk.

Important documents? SOME of them are on the table by the single chairs. OR at least, they were.

Cleaning house probably will help you feel better, and there's nothing wrong with underwear :D

I loves you

It's my passport I am seeking out now.

Looks like you've got the same problem with "optimistic sceduling" as I do. *s*

*l* And here I thought I was the only person that thought about weird stuff like that... *s*

Never fear, I am pretty sure I could keep you company in many weirdness behaviours. ;)

Wow. You have no idea how innapropriate that sounded in my head. *l*
