Lazing on a Wednesday Afternoon

It feels a bit of a circle of life thing: I don’t think I got more than 10 meters further away from my bed yesterday. I only took my pyjamas off for the benefit of a shower, after which I put it back on. What a lovely day to spend a day!
Or is it? Back in my bachelor days I got to spend many a day in roughly that fashion, getting out of bed to have breakfast at 14:00. Back then it used to feel nice to charge my batteries up but this waste of my time used to irritate me: would I be doing so much nothing were I to have someone to do stuff with?
Now I suffer the opposite problem, with life being so demanding I hardly have time to rest. Instead I suffer from constant sleep deprivation as I struggle to do a bit of the things I enjoy doing on top of the things I have to do. Spending a public holiday doing virtually nothing, a miserable rainy public holiday in particular, feels like winning some sort of a trophy.

For the record, the day was far from being wasted. For a good few hours the whole family was united as we watched my Mass Effect 3 adventure come to an end. I think I can say with much confidence that this has been the best video game I have ever had the pleasure of playing. I might have finished its single player campaign once, but it sure hasn’t seen the last of me!
