Read Only if You’re Really Bored

I couldn’t come up with anything to write about last week.

This week is the same. But I can’t let my tens of fans down, so I’ve got to write about something.

So, let’s see what I can come up with.

I’m bored with Best Buy now. I go to Borders instead.

I wonder how someone came up with that name. “Best Buy” makes sense since they do have good deals, but “Borders”? How is that tied into books (and overpriced music and movies)? I should ask next time I venture there, but they always seem to want to get you out the door so they can get to that next person in line.

(The cat is trying to sleep. I keep on waking it up by touching his head. Funny stuff.)

So that’s the way things have been going. The last three months I’ve been hanging out a Borders, going through stuff with no real purpose in mind. Kind of like this column I suppose. This past weekend I went to Borders, but this time I went to a totally different Borders then the one I normally visit. I kind of like this one better since it’s more spread out, but will probably go back to the other one since I feel more at home there. At both stores the people at the registers wear futuristic headsets, which is kind of cool, but doesn’t really serve any purpose that I can think of. Maybe someone that’s checking out couldn’t find something and tells the cashier who shouts out on the airwaves that they have a problem, someone couldn’t find what they were looking for and they need backup, STAT!

I peed a lot this morning when I woke up. I didn’t think I had to pee that much, but went since it’s what I do after having a refreshing smoke. While I peed I wondered why I peed so much when it didn’t feel like I needed to. I thought that was kind of cool and hope it happens again. Maybe I lost the urge to pee so I can now go days without having to think about peeing which will give me more time to do those little things in life.

We’ve got one of those wire mesh things that’s connected to the end of the hose from the washer so it can capture the lint as the water emptied into the sink. It was full this past weekend so I changed it. I tried peeling off the captured lint, but that only made the mesh thing tear so I put a new one on since the instructions state that it should be changed when half full. I need to invent a new lint catcher that doesn’t need to be fully replaced since people will be able to simply remove the captured lint and reinstall the catcher. I’ll probably get to work on that tomorrow.

I didn’t have to change the clock ahead on the VCR in the living room since I didn’t change it in October. Same with the clock in the car. I saved precious time by doing this, combine this with not peeing and see how much free time I gained.

I also changed two lightbulbs in the garage without falling off the ladder.

COMING NEXT: Who the fuck knows

Stephen Johnson

The idea of building a website with Bob came from Stephen in the days of message boards and chat rooms. We settled on the name and the rest is history. Retired since he hit the ripe age of 25, he spends most his time doing odd-jobs around the house and digging thru trash bins for "stuff that's still good." Stephen has contributed several short stories and hosted the "Lunatic Ravings" column since the beginning (1999). The idea of writing weekly columns came from Stephen before blogs or blog sites ever existed. So, I guess that makes him THE FIRST BLOGGER IN THE WORLD!!!
