here's a fine line between laziness and relaxation. Some would argue that any time spent doing anything less-than-meaningful is wasteful, and by extension lazy. I won't argue that too strenuously, because if I did argue it, it would violate my own penchant for laziness. If I were less lazy, I might try to do some verbal fencing to at least build a case for "relaxation" vis-a-vis "taking a break" as simply a momentary lapse amidst more typical hard-working goings on.
But personal laziness + a wealth of evidence to the contrary would make that argument not only flawed, but even more work.
This weekend Sally & I succumbed to our total lack of cultural awareness and rented the first season of the network TV show "Lost." Mixed with a generous portion of procrastination (which is in fact Laziness' hot second cousin), she and I watched every episode, back-to-back, starting Friday, all through Saturday (stopping only to canvas the town for the 6th DVD in the set) and saw the final episode after church on Sunday. Hallelujah.
It was a decadent waste of time, and though it's not the greatest show ever made (have I ranted about Aqua Teen Hunger Force?), it kept us watching for 19+ hours at a sitting. The thing is, commercial free episode-to-episode watching is entirely too addictive, and very hard to stop, except when you wet yourself, then you do tend to want to move off the bed.
So we're all caught up on the series, but the funny thing is we don't get network channels, so we won't see the rest of the season until it comes out on DVD again, which could be many months. We'll have to completely avoid all entertainment news in order to keep from spoiling the plot. What are we supposed to do with the E! channel?
