Ever feel completely unproductive?

So today I didn't leave the house. I did leave the apartment, as I was doing laundry and had to go to the basement to switch loads. But I never set foot outside the dwelling. Something can't be right about that. I did some homework, did some laundry, and played a lot of video games. Oh, and saw the Punisher on cable. And some of Sniper. I wonder if Chuck was watching it at the same time.

Now, I'm not good alone. Some people love being alone. They yearn for the time to handle their affairs or just spend it in solitude. Not me. I like to be surrounded by people, which I was not today. And while I did okay, it felt like I wasted a day. I made myself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and reheated some pizza. That and coffee were my daily sustenance.

I insulted some friends of mine, not on purpose. And I spent some time feeling like a chump for that. Today, when you come down to it, wasn't much of a Sunday. I probably could have gone in to work today and gotten some stuff done. Would have made me feel more productive. I guess you need days like this to really appreciate quality times.

I'm thinking about a vacation. Of course, I'm going solo. Any ideas where to go? I want to leave Massachusetts. I'm open to suggestions.

I went to the office yesterday. no one should work on a day off if they don't have to-- alone or not, it sucks.

I actually read during the afternoon and then built a birdfeeder believe it or not. Looks like a giant cross is in our backyard now. Kinda funny lookin. Oh and I watched the movie Punisher last weekend on DVD.
I would go someplace warm and get some rays.

Megan worked all weekend so I watched 16 episodes of season 4 of 24. I suppose I produced carbon dioxide, which plants need, right? Or will Al Gore get on my ass about that too?

I also had a Dorito-eating/beer-drinking contest with myself and I won. Well, me and the packy.

I recommend a trip to LA, purely for your benefit. No really. And in 2 weeks I'll be laid-off so there will be *plenty* of time for eating tacos, stalking Linsay Lohan and getting botoxed (my standard weekend).

I hear Pville, MO is a nice place to visit.

You could practice skeet-shooting and frog-gigging.
