I have now played the break from Mauro Picotto’s Komodo about 20 times in a row at window shaking volume, and I’ll do it again because there’s no here to bug me about making noise or sneer at me for being a 45 year old professional who’s also a secret techno geek.
One more time…!
Aloneness can be lonely and lovely.
Alone dopers, what’s your favorite aloneness indulgence?
Oh, just the thought of aloneness indulgences! whimper
My flatmate is going home to Maastricht for 2 months and I can’t wait to spoil myself.
Long baths, what I want to eat when I want to eat, control of the remote, my choice of music, internet access when I want … an entire new world is going to open itself up to me and I’m just so excited.
When I am alone I can spend a whole Saturday lying on my bed, drinking tea and reading. When I try to do this while visiting my boyfriend, he gets all pouty and says I’m ignoring him. I guess he has a point. But what better way to spend a lazy, overcast Saturday?
I’ve been living alone for a year now. I love being able to walk around naked, making a mess where ever I please. I don’t have to answer calls for any one else or worry about not getting my messages. No worrying about leaving enough hot water for some one else to shower in the morning.
The downside to it though is I’m the only one here to clean all the messes. Some how those dishes pile up quick.
Indulging in very weird inside jokes over the phone (“No! They suddenly caught the hantavirus and turned UGLY!” “Hi? You suck, Plop!”) and not wondering how weirded out my roommate will be if they overhear.
While living alone and working from home, I can indulge in my odd sleeping schedule without bothering anyone. I generally sleep for about 8 hours, then stay up for about 20, so my sleep times rotate around the clock. That’s probably not the healthiest thing in the world, but it’s what I fall into when I’ve got nothing to keep me on a more regular schedule.
I can’t pick out just one but a few of my favorites are being able to wear pajamas all day if I want to, not having anyone fuss if I decide to veg and watch bad lifetime movies, getting all the hot water to myself, and being able to get up at 3 a.m. and make as much noise as I want to or going to bed at 6 p.m. if I’m tired.
