Day In The Life (Of A Deadbeat)

Look, I'm sorry about that whole Antibacterial-Samhain investigative journalism fiasco. That kind of blogging isn't my modus operandi. Not really. I'm more about the slice of life vignette. The poignant sudden story that gives you an "in" ... a short, sharp shock of c-dog sympatico. That's what it's all about, dear reader. Me and you: connecting. I'm not going to google news, or anywhere else, for this morning's post. I'm staying right here at home. This is all about sitting 'round at home on a Saturday a.m. with yours truly.

7:00 a.m.-ish: Whoa. Way too early to be up on Saturday. Tif's still sleeping. Go back to sleep.

8:00 a.m.-ish: What?! Awake again? No. This won't do.

10:00 a.m.-ish: Tif's awake. Why? There's no hurry. Oh yeah, she's going to Boston today with her friend Sonia to get some lunch at P.F. Chang's. Girls' day out. I'm awake now, but I think I'll take a little nap before getting out of bed.

10:23 a.m.: OK, now I'm ready to start my day. What to do? It's Saturday morning and I've got nowhere to be ... let's watch some cartoons. All the cartoons on tv suck. Got those eps of Home Movies I burned, let's watch some of those. Back upstairs and into bed to watch cartoons on the computer.

10:25 a.m. - 11:45 a.m.: 3 ep Home Movies marathon. That's good stuff. Coach McGuirk, man, that guy kills me. "I can't get involved with a co-worker. Look, how old are you?" "18." "OK, potentially, I could get involved with a co-worker."

11:48 a.m.: Breakfast. Should I shower first? It can wait. Not feeling up to taking on the Oral B brush, so a quick little old school toothbrushing and I'm ready for a bowl of Crunch Berries. Still hungry. Put some water on for oatmeal and brew a pot of coffee. Getting better.

12:00 p.m. Breakfast accomplished. What now? Doot-de-doot-do-doo... [rocks on balls of feet for a moment] Phone's ringing. Do telemarketers call on Saturday? Don't want to chance it. Phone stops, then starts again. It's code; Tif knows I won't pick up unless somebody rings once or twice, then calls right back. If telemarketers ever catch on, I'm going to have to get the phone disconnected. Tif's a sweetheart. She misses me. Wants to let me know I don't have to do whatever it was she asked me to do this morning, she had time to take care of it. Asked me to do something? Hmmm. I vaguely remember something ... about something ... now that she mentions it, but I play along like I was just about to do it so I'm glad she called.

That pretty much takes us up to now. Got a few more downloads to clear off the hard drive, so I guess I should get started on that. Maybe play a little Puresim ... phones ringing again. No quick ring back. I'm not falling for that. Hey, the Badgers are playing Iowa ESPN. That's something. Catch y'all later. I'll update as events warrant. Oh, there's a new Boneyard in my inbox. I'm going to get that loaded up sometime today, so keep an eye out!
