BORED NOW [a list of random things]

*headpiano* [mindset]
I am bored. I want to get a backpack of essentials and disappear for about three years, just wander the world Cane-style. [pan flutes] It's that weird place where winter is coming to a close here and spring is attempting to spring and it has me fidgety and antsy and wanting to DO. CREATE. MAKE. CHANGE.

I've just spent the winter affixed to my chair writing, and now that I'm finished with that story, I need something else. WHAT DO.

I ordered myself a new computer, and...I'm going with a Mac. A fancy Mac at that. My husband has one for work, and wow, is it better than my funky little Dell I've had for almost 7 years. AND YEAH I KNOW THAT IS OLD FOR A LAPTOP. Which is why I'm getting a new one.

Have y'all seen that Amtrak is going to offer "writer's residences" on board for cross-country trips for free/low cost? YEAH I COULD GET BEHIND THAT. I'd want to dress like Rosalind Russel in My Girl Friday every day, though.

I bought an inversion table for the Mr. as his Christmas present, something he's been asking for for years and then hasn't used it but once. Holy smokes, I love it. (And you can do curls on them and really work those core muscles! *pats belly*)

I changed my dad's wireless network name to "FBI SURVEILLANCE VAN" yesterday because the man needs to learn to change up his passwords. And not have them be FIVE LETTERS, OH MY GOD, DAD, THAT HAS BEEN YOUR PASSWORD SINCE MY CHILDHOOD. Apparently he has some "illegal music software" on his ancient computer, it's like, 16-bit midi shit, and he was convinced that the NSA found out. My son called to tell me all of this, and was crying from laughter. I'm a terrible person, I know. But that shit's funny, I'm sorry.

BORED BORED BORED I AM SO TIRED OF BEING A HOUSEWIFE AHHHHHHHHH [don't take this to mean I want a job, lol. I want to be freeeeee]

I am coming back from the depression that had kicked my ass and I am SO WITH YOU ON THE WANTING TO CREATE OMFG. Let's head for a cabin in the woods (not the Joss Whedon kind) and paint and write and make art until we DIE (but not the Joss Whedon kind) Okay?

SO LET IT BE WRITTEN.
SO LET IT BE DONE.

I'd want to dress like Rosalind Russel in My Girl Friday every day, though. That sounds fantastic! We could wear sharp suits and hats and talk machine gun fast and drink gin! There might even be writing involved along with the playacting *looks through collection of vintage hats*

it's awesome that you accidentally bought yourself a Christmas present.

As I am sitting her waiting for my brother to fix my email program because the ATT wireless guy screwed with my box ports and I am all o-o and flailing about without an instruction manual, I am right up there with your tech savvy dad. You are allowed to laugh.

As I have spent the morning RSVPing to all the SXSW day parties while a pork shoulder braises away in the oven, I looooove being a housewife!

WOULDN'T TRAVELING ON A TRAIN BE FUN? I totally want to do this.

YES BUT YOU GET TO DO FUN STUFF AS A HOUSEWIFE. I have to chauffeur children and fold endless amounts of socks and have people roll their eyes at me and my husband is always out of town eating out and having maid service. =/

BOO. I would do haus frau your way ANY DAY.

Oh, I loved my elliptical when I had it! I would read books on my Kindle and just chug chug chug on that thing. GOOD FOR YOU! Strong heart, healthy cardiovascular system, strong thighs = AWESOME.

HE FREAKED OUT THINKING HIS COPY ON A FLOPPY DISC OF SOME SHIT-ASS SOFTWARE FROM WINDOWS 93 WAS GETTING HIM ARRESTED.

Gotta love Mormons and their fear of theft! :D

I want to ride on that train, man. That would be so freaking fun, and I would actually focus.

LOL FLOPPY DISKS.

I travelled across Canada by train one summer. It was the coolest trip ever. Stupidly expensive, but worth it. And now you can train the United States FOR FREE.

Trains I love travelling on trains. Here in the UK if you book way in advance and travel after the rush hours you can get quite reasonable tickets to London in 1st class, with coffee carts to your seat and free Wi-Fi.
Unfortunately I understand that want 'to be free' cry. My husband is 13 years my senior & retired about 18 months ago. If I want time to myself I have to find reasons to leave the house. I love the fella but he drives me insane!

We're such a car culture here in the states that the trains are trying to lure people back. I'm a HUGE FAN OF THEM. I love going to Europe and taking trains!

That is the best thing I've read in days. I'm still giggling at random intervals half an hour later, so I had to come back and tell you. Also, now planning a sneak attack on my parents' wifi next time I visit, because excellent point.

Ha, I'm glad you laughed! AND YES, PRANK YOUR PARENTS AS WELL.

FBI SURVEILLANCE VAN! I love it, so perfect. What is a good priesthood holder doing pirating music, anyway?

I keep reading "inversion" as "immersion" and imagine you being lowered into your pool in a baptism/water-boarding adventure.

HAHAHA, someone had this program on a floppy disc and gave it to him, ergo, it's stolen because he didn't buy it. THIS IS HOW HIS MIND WORKS.

I lol'd so hard at baptism/water-boarding.

I know juuuust how you feel, after finishing a long project like that and not knowing where to turn next. Freedom -- horrible, horrible freedom!

Turn to the next project, so say I! Write something short and sassy and fun to amuse yourself as a sorbet before the next big project.

I'm now picturing someone in dark sunglasses outside your dad's house hissing, "We've been made!" into a hidden microphone.

I'm telling myself that my brain is being given a vacation, and then I have to WORK WORK WORK. Online shopping time! :D

I keep thinking of that Bugs Bunny cartoon with Mugsy and Rocky.

Bugs: "He's not in the stove!" [guards stove]
Cop: "Oho, he's hiding in the stove, eh?"

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
