Welcome to a new feature here at Mohawk Valley Girl: Slacker Saturday. When you haven’t done enough to warrant a Scattered Saturday post, you didn’t write a post earlier and you just can’t wait to make your post and declare it wine o’clock. Oh, who am I kidding? I don’t have to wait till after I post to have a glass of wine. We’ve talked about sipping and typing before. It is acceptable behavior among bloggers and a daily routine for some (um, I don’t do it daily. Do you suppose I ought to?).
I worked today. Although I was able to sleep until 3:30 instead of my usual 3:00, I’m tired. I tried to take a nap earlier but without success. I had a number of projects I thought I might work on, but all I wanted to do was sit on the couch and stare into space. Naturally I stared at Facebook for a while instead.
I did spend a little time folding laundry. Talk about a task of Sisyphus (ooh, I just figured out how to spell Sisyphus; yay me)! Of course I love having a washer and drier in my house, but ever since I stopped going to the laundromat, I never have all my clothes clean at once! I just can’t get to the bottom of the pile one load at a time. I keep thinking, if I do one load every day, I will get caught up. I can do that for maybe two days in a row. Then if you don’t fold one load, you naturally don’t fold the next, and then you don’t want to wash another load till you fold everything you’ve washed so far. Then sometimes you wear something out of the pile and think, “Ha, ha, don’t have to fold that one!” Or is that just me?
One thing I did after much dithering was begin to learn my lines for Much Ado About Nothing (remember, with LiFT Theatre Company; I’m the Friar). I had a bit of a sticky wicket when I could not find my Complete Works of Shakespeare. What’s that all about? It’s a giant yellow book, how do I lose it? It takes a talent, I suppose. If only I could use my powers for good. When I lamented my loss on Facebook a kind friend offered me some Shakespeare books she doesn’t want any more (duplicates, I believe). Another friend shared a link to all the plays. I hope to get the books from the first friend soon (greatly prefer paper; I’m old), but in them meantime, I checked out the link, found my scenes and started studying. Oh, how I love being in a play.
I almost forgot to mention: I worked on my banana play while on break at work (I only got one today). I think it is going rather well.
And look at this, I am over 500 words for one of my silly posts. I think that deserves a toast. Hope to see you all on Wrist to Forehead Sunday.
