Friday Mental Massage: Bachelor edition

Well, here we are. I’ve been living the bachelor life for less than 24 hours and already:

  • I’m sitting around in my underwear
  • There is a plate with pizza crust on it in the bathroom
  • I’ve played 6 hours of online poker
  • There is dirty laundry hanging from at least three places it shouldn’t be
  • I’ve watched a drug movie and stayed up past my bedtime
  • I haven’t showered
  • I didn’t take out the trash
  • But…

  • I haven’t had one alcoholic beverage
  • I won a poker tournament
  • I took out the recycling bin
  • I didn’t go to Taco Bell or Long John Silvers
  • The movie, Spun, was rather entertaining, if a little disturbing
  • So that leaves me with today. I’ve already done a few hours work. I’m now trying to get up the gumption to tackle a to-do list that includes:

  • Vote
  • Go to my bookkeeper’s
  • Shower
  • Shave
  • Eat
  • Do anything that sounds like fun
  • All of this is hampered by the facts:

  • I’m lazy and still feeling yucky
  • I haven’t done anything to prepare for going to see the bookkeeper
  • I can’t find my voter registration card and don’t know if I need it to vote absentee
  • Friday night is “Family Night” among my group of friends, which made a lot more sense until my family went out of town
  • And so, my possibilities for the next 15 hours include:

  • Doing exactly what I did yesterday, which amounts to sitting around, moaning, and being a baby
  • Rally, clean the house, clean myself, and tackle the to-do list
  • Go do something unexpected (solo rage downtown, bar dinner and movie, going to sleep at 7pm)
  • Here’s to a solid rally.

      1) How can you vote before the final presidential debate!?!?!?!?!? 😉

      2) Stop being a little girl and watch Braveheart. It’s only one of the 5 greatest movies of all time.

      3) Congrats on the tourney.

      All you needed to make a decision was laid out for you last night on SNL!

      1) Change underwear before any solo rage!
      2) Pizza Crust! MUST REMOVE PLATE OF PIZZA CRUST!
      3) Start watching Braveheart so you can get CJ off your back and then, sleep well my friend!

      I’ll set the line at 7:43 pm.

      Enjoy the nothing . . . and feel better . . . being sick is no fun . . . especially alone.
