I need some suggestions! I have this whole weekend free, and nothing to do with it. I am already going stir crazy because I have nothing to do tonight. The following is my list of resources (or lack thereof) for the weekend:
[li]A full tank of gasoline in my car.[/li][li]About 8-15 dollars cash. No, I can’t get anymore.[/li][li]My friends are all busy and have plans.[/li][li]One movie, Valentine, showing at the $1.00 theater that interests me. (approx. 90 minutes)[/li][li]The only plans I have are going to church Sat. afternoon and Sun. morning (Sat. 60 minutes / Sun. 90 minutes)[/li]This is what the weather will be like.
Beginning as I write this, (4pm EST) I have 52 hours of free time this weekend to do whatever the heck I want. The problem is, I can only come up with 4 hours worth of things to occupy that time with! Help, don’t let me waste my weekend. Give me some sincere suggestions, please.
How about taking that $8-$15 and using it to purchase a GOOD gazateer. Pack a lunch and take all the back roads that near you that look even slightly interesting? Make sure to stop at all the brown signs - is amazing what you can learn from them.
Pardon me, please, but your suggestion eludes me. I appreciate your insight, however, what exactly is the goal/premise of your proposal? As far as I can tell, it sounds as though you suggest I ought to deliberately & aimlessly wander the countryside for two days with no objective whatsoever, other than a "joyride."
If that is what you enjoy, then kudos to you, neighbor. Sorry, but that just doesn’t “fly” with me. I can’t afford to burn my fuel on wild goose chases. I may as well go snipe hunting. I have never enjoyed travel. Next please…
P.S. - By the way: dustMagnate, disc golf with no partner seems rather pointless, does it not? Plus, I just down right stink at it, LOL.
Guaranteed to bring at least 24 hrs. of whacky fun…
1)Drive your fully fueled car to your local pharmacy
2)Purchase exactly $3.79 worth of choco-lax
3)Go to your local mom & pop hardware store
4)Spend $8.37 for 10 plastic pooper-scoopers
5)Spend $2.84 for a box of 50 small garbage bags
6)Go to your local park, and drop small bits of the choco-
lax next to each tree
7)Sit on a bench and look disinterested in the goings-on
8)Soon, you will have a lucrative business, selling 1 bag
and 1 scooper to each of 10 hapless dog owners for $1.50
What are the rewards, you ask? Well, you will recover your original $15.00, and if you saved your receipts, you may be able to deduct it as a business expense. Plus, you will have successfully pissed away alot of time, and will have 40 garbage bags for home use.
I feared this may happen. One of the downfalls of having a brutally honest nature and openness of thought. I wasn’t attempting to “diss” anyone, but if I have, I sincerely apologize. I know they are trying to help. I guess if something doesn’t fit my interest, I should just post no reply to that particular suggestion. As tactful as I may try to be, I know my replies can be off-putting. Sorry folks. :o
