I sometimes wish I were a cat, to be able lounge around without worry about what I am doing! Doing nothing can be so wonderful. Not always but sometimes! Then again, if you have a little something to focus on, all the better!

I have recently found great comfort in some free magazines I find at my public and university library. Last night I was reading a Canadian magazine, reading about (skimming!) politicians I didn't care about, didn't think have to heavily about them. Read some new opinions that were kind of cool (English Language Learners want to learn slang so they know what their sons are telling them! ). Then I read all about Barbra Streisand's home. Which is not in Canada (I checked!) but interested them (and me too partly!).

I was thinking last night how good it is for me to read these magazines, catch up about what people think and feel. And not totally lazy!

What do you do when you are being lazy?

( I know CDing but what else?)

Why camping of course! But seriously, I love to turn everything off and just listen...the different sounds the house makes or even better yet be outside ( as in camping) and just listen to the world go by.

Sit in my recliner and watch a few episodes of M*A*S*H or read for a while.

Other than CDing, I read, watch tv, shop online, or do jigsaw puzzles online. I also eat a lot!

Sit, with a cup of tea, and watch the critters in the garden.

Lazy,,,,,,,,,,,,,, that’s my middle name. I’m so lazy I can fall asleep while watching someone else work.

I simply waste time doing things that I enjoy and avoiding those things that need attention. Like, I’ll spend a good part of the day at the pc and void cleaning out the garage. My problem is the pc and C-D along with all that comes tied together with it. Time simply slips away when you sit in front of the screen and hour turns into two or three. But life is good while doing it.

I try to be lazy, I really do, but I can't seem to pull it off. If I put on a movie, I am up and down, up and down. There literally is always something to be doing.
I love to sit out with my plants and have a martini, but I keep getting up then, too.

Interesting concept.

You need to drink more. Makes it difficult to get up.
