I woke up late for work today, was rushing to get out the door and took one look out the window and realized it was gonna be a snow day. Whoo-hoo!
Let’s see just what I accomplished today: Hit the Straight Dope, went to washingtonpost.com to get the news (no school tomorrow!), did some general web surfing, played around on my GameCube, drank lots of coffee, laughed at my idiot neighbors who were shoveling their driveways at noon (have you people even seen the weather forecast?), chatted on the phone with a variety of people, watched some TV (something I almost never do) and just in general screwed around the house. I unfortunately didn’t find the time to make a snow man, but there’s always tomorrow. Oh, I did have to tell my brother to get lost when he showed up around 3:00 in his Jeep and was insistent that I needed to go into work. I swear his only reason for existence is to make my life miserable.
What I could’ve done today was clean the house, do my homework, finally organize my basement, maybe pay some bills and a host of other adult type things. Hell, I haven’t even checked my e-mail. But I figured days like this are rare so I’m gonna enjoy it to the fullest, especially since chances are I won’t have to go to work or school tomorrow either. Why people up north make fun of the fact that everything shuts down around here when it snows is beyond me, don’t you like having unscheduled days off?
So, any other MAD’s commit the enjoyable sin of sloth today, or did you succumb to temptation and actual do something productive?
