Well, it’s Sunday night. I don’t have to work tomorrow, although I do have to go “to” work for a short while. I can’t tell you what I have to do there, or that would be disclosing “company operations” on the internet, or particularly my blog, which I can’t do. But suffice it to say it’s quick and painless.
I am still in my pajamas (yes all day) and I feel kind of guilty that I haven’t gotten dressed…. And that makes me feel guilty that I haven’t accomplished enough this weekend. As I started to feel guilty, I decided to make a list of what I have done, so that I hopefully would find something productive.

And this, is an Adventure in My everyday life, and a particular weekend which ALMOST ended with me feeling like a lazy, guilty slob, who didn’t do hardly ANYTHING productive all weekend. Until, that is, I decided to bore you to death by listing my activities here.
